Two reviews of new films I've written for The Film Pilgrim:


Continuing the Bourne franchise was always going to be a risky move after Ultimatum nicely tied off Jason Bourne’s story. The decision to revive it was thus met with skepticism, especially considering that the fourth film would neither be directed by Paul Greengrass nor star Matt Damon – but would still have his character’s name in the title.


Hope Springs tries to be an intelligent, engaging look at a relationship past its prime and, while the talented lead actors contribute excellently to this, what lets it down and reduces the ability to connect with Kay and Arnold is its lack of humour and its dull pacing. Like the thirty-first year of marriage to Tommy Lee Jones, Frankel’s film is stale and desperately in need of livening up.
