Jason Bourne is the resurfacing of former Treadstone volunteer David Webb aka Jason Bourne (played by Matt Damon), who’s thrown back into the mix when Former Treadstone psychologist Nicky Stone psychologist Nicky Parsons (played by Julia Stiles) finds him and gives him files on CIA Black Operation that mention Treadstone and the other programs like it. So Jason goes around the world trying to figure out how he was recruited to Treadstone, while being chased by CIA, leaded by CIA Director Robert Dewey (played by Tommy Lee Jones), who leads the program known as Ironhand disguised as another program called Deep Dream that gives people private internet for free that really isn’t private for the CIA has access to everyone’s personal information online. Deep Dream was designed by Aaron Kaloor (played by Riz Ahmed), an IT person that has helped the CIA before when having to cover up covert information online. Also chasing after Bourne is CIA Agent Alicia Vikander (played by Alicia Vikander) and the CIA’s assassin known as the Asset (played by Vincent Cassel) that was part of the CIA Black Operation known as Operation Blackbriar that was revealed to the world by Bourne and caused him to be captured and tortured for 2 years.

Jason Bourne is directed by Paul Greengrass, who directed Bourne Supremacy and Ultimatum, and it shows in the way the action is shot in old shaky cam style like Supremacy and Ultimatum, which is when the camera shakes to make it seem more realistic. While Jason Bourne has good and interesting character development of it’s main character, it doesn’t help that Jason Bourne is a rip off of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with having a government agency watching everyone on earth and having someone who worked for that government agency go up against it. In the end, while Jason Bourne has some good acting and action, the story is not as good as Supremacy and Ultimatum.
