(WLTX) - Aaron Cross is a human with superhuman abilities. But how does this guy do it? Was he just "Bourne this way?" Apparently, it's all in the medication.
Our old friend, Jason Bourne, has been shaking things up for the CIA. Now, in order to cover their tracks, all members of Operation Outcome, are to be eliminated. Aaron, however, manages to escape death by a hair and, suddenly, finds himself on the run.
His only hope is to make his way to Manila so he may get "viralled off" his meds. Then, he will be able to retain the abilities that will keep him running from his killers for at least two more movies!
I've always been a fan of the "Bourne" series. Unlike most franchises, it seemed to steadily get better with each new release. So, it was bound to take a step backward at some point. However, it's not a major setback. It's a decent film on its own. It just falls short by comparison. And anyone who had trouble with the "shaky cam" in previous entries will be happy to know that the picture remains much steadier this time.
Perhaps my hunch is wrong - but I'm assuming there will be future installments to this (which will probably bring back Jason Bourne and have these two super spies working together). So, while the movie may lack greatness, it still could be forthcoming.
