Jason Bourne: Action hero delivers the goods again

By Damon Smith

The fifth chapter of the action-packed espionage saga is a deceptive slow burn for the opening half hour, but once the script lights the fuse on manifold deceptions, there's little time to breathe between plot revelations and bloodthirsty retribution as Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) declares war on CIA director Robert Dewey (Tommy Lee Jones) and his ambitious protege, Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander).

Director Paul Greengrass delivers breathlessly choreographed hand-to-hand combat, dizzying chases and a jaw-dropping sequence of automotive carnage in Las Vegas.
