Yup, this looks phenomenal. No question about it. This trailer doesn't give you much, but it tells you two important things.
A. Jason Bourne is back.
B. He's still awesome.
Even in the modern sphere of action movies, the Greengrass Bourne movies stand out as terrific pieces of action filmmaking. He's such a dynamic director, and he creates movies where each scene has an immediacy that is hard to imitate. Jason Bourne looks to have a similar style, but with a slicker look and a modern conscious. After three films of having Bourne search for his identity, I must say, it's going to be refreshing to see him embracing the action hero role. The new cast, led by Oscar winner Alicia Vikander and Tommy Lee Jones, is terrific, and the tone seems pitch-perfect. Plus, the Las Vegas strip set-piece looks just as astounding as promised. All in all, this is one of the summer's biggest action movies and one that I simply can't wait for. I would hesitate to guarantee quality from many upcoming summer movies, but with Jason Bourne, it's pretty much a sure thing. I'm ready for Greengrass and Damon to knock this one out of the park.
Jason Bourne stars Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Riz Ahmed, Ato Essandoh, Scott Shepard, and Tommy Lee Jones, and hits theaters on July 29.
