My issue with the “Bourne” franchise is that ALL the films just feel exactly the same. I can’t tell you a difference between any of the films. Universal realized they failed without Damon with “The Bourne Legacy”, so they brought him back but its just not enough to make this film memorable. Now that I have seen it and let it settle I still can’t tell you the difference between the other three films (with Damon). Either way, it made money, so I am sure… coming soon: Bourne 6.

Official Premise: Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in Jason Bourne. Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, once again joins Damon for the next chapter of Universal Pictures’ Bourne franchise, which finds the CIA’s most lethal operative drawn out of the shadows.

“Jason Bourne” Blu-ray comes equipped with a DVD and also a UV/iTunes digital copy. The 1080p transfer looks great, no complaints really at all. Dark scenes are also shot well. The DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 sounds amazing with the action packed score and sequences. So U/V doesn’t let down. The special features though are not as impressive.

There are really one three (multi-part) featurettes included on this Blu-ray. The first “Bringing Back Bourne” features cast/crew discussing on bringing back Damon and Greengrass to the series. There is a three part feature “Bourne to Fight”, which focuses on the action/choreography. Last extra is a two parter “Las Vegas Showdown” focusing on showing in the sin city….and that’s all folks.
