“Snowden” has problems, and it starts with director Oliver Stone. The controversial, three time Oscar winner hasn’t really made a good film since 1995’s “Nixon” (ironically the last time he was nominated). His notion of more being more always distracts and takes away from whatever current agenda or factual story he is peddling to the big screen. Still his former clout means something, as he boasts an impressive cast roster. His last decade of films “W.” (too soon), “World Trade Center” (way too soon), “Alexander” (a disaster) and the sequel to his 1987 “Wall Street” proved he is completely out of touch with what modern audiences want in a cinematic experience. “Snowden” also fails, as it doesn’t offer anything we don’t already know following numerous documentaries, articles, and interviews.

The “Bourne” series, which began in 2002 with director Doug Liman, instantly became Oscar-winner Matt Damon’s most successful acting venture. The 2004 sequel “The Bourne Supremacy” was handed over to director Paul Greengrass (“United 93,” “Captain Phillips”), who revitalized the series. Greengrass returned to finish out the trilogy in “The Bourne Ultimatum” (2007), but not without controversy from Damon, who publicly criticized writer Tony Gilroy’s script. The point is, Damon refused a fourth film, they made it without him. Ironically, it was directed by Gilroy. Once Greengrass agreed to do another, Damon returned, but this time also served as a producer. Damon only has 25 lines of dialogue in this action film that fills in the holes of Jason Bourne’s past. It’s also the first film for Alicia Vikander (“Ex Machina,” “The Danish Girl”) since winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in “The Danish Girl.”
