There Was Never Just One.

After five years the Bourne franchise is back, only not quite as we know it.

Rather than reboot the popular film series from scratch (c.f. Spiderman) or just continue it merely using a different actor (a la Bond), the Studios have chosen an unusual middle-ground: keep the Bourne name in the title, but change the lead character, effectively telling a parallel ‘origin’ story of another highly-trained superspy, who happened to be left out in the cold largely as a result of the events surrounding Jason Bourne himself.

The night before I was discussing the ludicrous basic plot line of Lucy where they still persist in using the humans only use 10% of our brains which has been debunked for a long time, and said there could be other plot devises that would get round this and make it viable. And watching this I thought YES they could have used something like this.

I don't remember it being a total stinker but, then again, I don't remember very much about it. Something about pills maybe, but that might have been The Matrix. And some fighting... but that could be anything.
