"Even when Jason Bourne doesn't click with the same rhythm as its predecessors, it has a weight that outclasses nearly every other big action movie around." - Associated Press.

"The action is characteristically stylish and breathtakingly fast." - CNN.

"All this plays out at a breakneck pace that is paradoxically unengaging, despite the nonstop action." - Washington Post.

"Damon, his eternal boyishness finally settling into the inevitability of middle age, brings the personal touch this movie needs. Its action is generic, but he's always special." - Time Magazine.

"A by-the-numbers action film that's not nearly as strong as its Damon-led predecessors." - USA Today.

"Technically and logistically, Greengrass delivers everything you expect from him; there's no one better when it comes to staging complex, chaotic action amid the real life of big cities." - Hollywood Reporter.

"Jason Bourne has already given us a hero who transcends two dimensions. We just need to know more about what he's fighting for." - Entertainment Weekly.

"Just as the initial Damon-driven trilogy wrapped up Bourne's business but left us wanting more, this sequel offers closure even as it entices us with the possibility of his return." - Variety.

"This fourth entry after a nine-year break for Damon and Greengrass should represent, for those ready and able to separate popcorn mayhem from the grim realities of world headlines, a bruising and exhilarating ride." - The Wrap.

"[Damon] has lost none of his battered gravity, and director Paul Greengrass keeps the action racing forward in a splinteringly rough documentary style." - People Magazine.

"Jason Bourne has a passable plot and a couple of pulsating sequences, which already makes it better than the majority of action movies." - IGN Movies.

"Bourne used to be an anguished amnesiac. Now he remembers who he is, but this fourth episode of the franchise forgot to make him human." - Wall Street Journal.
