JASON BOURNE -
Here it is: Matt Damon's fourth and not necessarily final outing as the CIA's amnesiac super-assassin gone rogue, Jason Bourne. This latest iteration reunites Damon with
director Paul Greengrass who as ever shows his mastery of muscular, deafening, frenetically edited action sequences - the visual equivalent of a drum-roll. Greengrass,
who has co-written the film with his editor Christopher Rouse, whisks us to cities all over the world and the drama here culminates in an eye-poppingly spectacular finale
in Las Vegas, whose skyline is dominated by the Trump hotel.
Also Penthouse, Empire, Roxy, Lighthouse, Readings, Queensgate, Monterey and Coastlands.
