Bourne Movies Better Than Rogue Nation



"They Don't Do Random"

Bourne is more of a tortured soul: that whole amnesia thing.

He seems to seek more close contact with the agency and stay in total confidence that he will have the upper hand, which means he knows the agency inside out, knows their every move.

Bourne has been biologically enhanced: that leads to more intense action sequences, some of the best ones are when he grabs whatever he can get hold of -- a pen? -- and uses them to devastating effects. Closed space action sequences are some of the best I have seen in movies.

You feel greater sympathy for Bourne than you do for Ethan. Ethan feels like a movie star, a Bond. Bourne could use a hug.

Bourne's challenge to the agency is total. Victory is when he finally humanizes himself.
