Movie review: 'Jason Bourne' is a ripped-from-the-headlines thrill

It turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks. That's if the dog is super-soldier former CIA agent Jason Bourne (Matt Damon), and the trainer is director Paul Greengrass, who helmed Bournes "Supremacy" and "Ultimatum." After the misfire that was "The Bourne Legacy," a misguided attempt to pass off the franchise to Jeremy Renner, Damon and Greengrass ably right the ship, delivering a Bourne film that looks and feels like the kind that we've always loved.
