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.
