very good bourne

I am a huge Bourne fan and was very pleased with this one. It was a well written sequel (A feat next to impossible to do in this day and age) It was just as good as the first Bourne (P.S. you can buy the entire Bourne trilogy the bourne identity, bourne supremacy, bourne ultimatum for $13 on Amazon) This movie was quite violent but not as much as the next one (Bourne Ultimatum) but that is what the Bourne movies do.

Too much violence

The most Violent of the Bournes Series Still has too much profanity and some blasphemies,

This Movie is really well made The most violent movie of the Jason Bourne Series. Unfortunately it has great Disappointments: I has way too many profanities, some blasphemies which 1 is more than enough and way way and to many uses of Our Lord's name in vain. although there is no sexuality, as the review states in common sense media, at the begging of the movie a woman wears a bikini top, till she gets killed in the beginning of the movie. The violence gets to the point of a choking scene with a cable wire to the point where you can see the enemy of borne in desperation trying to hit borne upwards as he dies.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
