Review of the Bourne Trilogy

Pastor James Harleman of Mars Hill’s Cinemagogue site has posted an intriguing review of The Bourne Ultimatum, with reflections on the Bourne Trilogy here.

He examines the trilogy in light of its redemptive aspects and the parallels between Jason Bourne’s character and both the life and significance of Jesus as well as the struggles of fallen humanity in a broken world. He sums up the Bourne Trilogy like this:

While Greengrass’ gritty, realistic style and Damon’s dour intensity have secured this film series the complement of being one of the most engaging and seamless trilogies every made, the intentional or unintentional ability of the series to tap into these aspects of the One True Narrative have made it more than an action series and give it a depth that will endure while other action heroes fade.

Give it a read.
