Common Sense Media should stick to parental advice

The main review of this movie is ridiculous and obviously written by someone who has a bias against quality action movies. This movie was fantastic! The story is well written, with great acting and just the right amount of action to keep you on the edge of your seat. If you love Jason Bourne movies you'll love this one. The only boring Jason Bourne movie was the one that didn't feature Matt Damon as the main character. This is a non stop thrill ride with a fair amount of violence but not too much gore. If you lean to the cautious side of parenting and don't allow too much violence, it may not be for you. Just know this doesn't contain any more violence than a super hero movie such as Iron Man. Common Media's review is out of line because it focuses more on the author's opinion of the movie rather than focusing on the warnings for parents. The reviewer was flat out wrong saying its not a good movie. AAA+++
