JASON BOURNE

“One would think that after more than a century of cinematic car chases we would have seen it all, but Greengrass and company have a few tricks up their sleeves.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“The last great serious spy series has become tedious.” – Norm Schrager, Meet in the Lobby

“For reasons I can only assume involve giant piles of money, Damon and Greengrass have returned at this late date to at long last make their own BOURNE REDUNDANCY, and I’m still a bit taken aback by how lousy it is.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“The times certainly are a-changin’. Now, the identity crisis seems focused less on the main character and more-so the film he resides within.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“You don’t ask if a roller coaster has a coherent plot or well-developed characters. You just get on and enjoy the thrills. If you can do that, you can take the dare.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“NERVE may be too safe for its own good, and too ignorant of its subject matter to be taken fully seriously, but at least it knows how to show us a good time.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“NERVE is a good movie that provides thrills as long as you’re like me and had no idea what was about to happen. It would also help if you’re the kind of person who is fine with it being as safe as it is.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“…the movie’s magic fantasy is gentle and childlike instead of brawny and authoritarian. Here, might does not make right. Compassion does.” – Andy Crump, The Playlist
