The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by Paul Green­grass. Star­ring Matt Da­mon, Tommy Lee Jones, Ali­cia Vikan­der, Vin­cent Cas­sel, Ju­lia Stiles, Riz Ahmed Thank good­ness. Da­mon and Green­grass are back for a fifth en­try in the es­pi­onage fran­chise that, with­out break­ing any new ground, re­turns us to the bone-jud­der­ing thrills of the early episodes. There are sly ref­er­ences to Snow­den and Greece’s fi­nan­cial im­plo­sion, but this all about the ac­tion and it is se­cond to none. It is sig­nif­i­cant that Christo­pher Rouse, the film’s editor, has re­ceived a screen­writ­ing credit. He is as much an au­teur as the di­rec­tor. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 123 min DC
