Look, I enjoyed the circa 2002-7 Bourne trilogy, and it’s surprising to me that I’ve never gotten around to 2012’s Damonless, Greengrassless The Bourne Legacy given how much I liked writer/director Tony Gilroy’s Michael Clayton. But as I aver in my NPR review, Jason Bourne isn’t just the least of the Damon-starring Bournes—it’s not even as good as SPECTRE, which suffered an acute surfeit of goodness. And Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. are both far more imaginative and colorful diversions, spywise and otherwise.
It gives me no joy to deliver unto you this disappointing news.
