Hollywood is bereft of ideas. Jason Bourne, a sequel that no one asked for, is a prime example of the death of creativity in movie land.

It's a movie that is unnecessary. Bourne's story was done. He should've stayed hid. Yet, like Al Pacino in Godfather III, they kept pulling him back in.

It starts with Julia Stiles showing back up. She's been gone from Hollywood movies so it was a surprise to see her back. She too should've stayed hid because any girl linked with Bourne ends up in a sniper's sights. She pulls Bourne in with the most hoary of cliches - it was Bourne's father who started Treadstone and that Bourne was recruited because the government had to lock him as the country's most steely assassin-spy.

And that was it. A back story which was dumb. He was a better character because of the mystery.

This will be a terrible summer for movies.

1 of 5 stars.
