Action man: Jeremy Renner as super-agent Aaron Cross

Bourne without identity or supremacy

In a film about cover-ups, the tagline of this fourth Bourne picture – "There Was Never Just One" – could itself be justly accused of concealing a more prosaic truth: "We needed to cook something up once Matt Damon bailed on the franchise."

Even if you have seen them it will be a test of your recall and you'll probably find the law of diminishing returns exerting an irresistible pressure.

Having made two excellent Bourne movies together, Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon reunite for an Iraq War thriller which doesn't work quite so well.

DVD: Green Zone (15)

Bourne is back, and he's better than ever. Well, not quite. This time, the Bourne Ultimatum duo – the director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon – have moved beyond their critically acclaimed franchise and teamed up to belt out a provocative and action-packed thriller.

Letters: The legacies of Bloody Sunday

*** I do not wish to diminish the significance of Lord Saville's report on the "Bloody Sunday" shootings, however I do find the hypocrisy of some of those who have condemned the military to be sickening.
