OUR JASON BOURNE REVIEWS & RATINGS:

 

David Griffiths:

It’s the film that hardcore Jason Bourne fans thought they would never see but yes Jason Bourne is back on the big screen. After ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ Matt Damon was quoted a number of times that he would never play the role again, even Universal seemed sure of it as they reworked the franchise with a new character that was given to Jeremy Renner to play. But it seems when you listen to a quote, listen to it properly because what Damon said was that he would never do another Bourne film unless Paul Greengrass (‘Captain Phillips’) was in the director’s chair. When Greengrass is back and so is Damon!!!

The film begins with Jason Bourne (Matt Damon – ‘Good Will Hunting’) staying out of sight in Europe and surviving on the money that he makes as he goes around competing in various underground fighting tournaments. He is forced out of hiding though when his former ally Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles – ‘Save The Last Dance’) hacks into the CIA’s computer network and makes some alarming discoveries about the real identity behind Jason Bourne and how his father was involved.

The hack alerts young CIA agent Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander – Ex-Machina) to what is happening and soon she finds herself working with CIA Director Robert Dewey (Tommy Lee Jones – ‘Men In Black’) to bring Bourne in. Together they bring in a brutal agent named only as Asset (Vincent Cassel – ‘Black Swan’) to put Bourne down while also trying to work out how to best deal with Social Media empire boss Aaron Kalloor (Riz Ahmed – ‘Nightcrawler’) who is threatening to expose the relationship between his social media platform and the CIA.

There is little doubt that Paul Greengrass’ latest entry into the Bourne franchise is pretty sleek but how does it hold up in the modern film environment? To be brutally honest I’ve never really seen Bourne as an elite franchise. While yes the films always look and they have shown that Matt Damon is a more than capable action star, they just don’t do enough to make themselves ‘different’ enough to really impress me. While franchises like ‘Fast & The Furious’ do whatever they can to make each film bigger and better the ‘Bourne’ franchise seems to just chug along doing the same thing each time, without doing much to change the formula along the way.

One of my criticisms levelled at this franchise in the past has been the fact that these films ride a dangerous path. The plots are never intense enough to make you marvel at the screenwriting while the action sequences are normally nothing any different to what we have seen before. Here it is obvious that they have tried to overcome these issues as the screenplay does have a bit more ‘meat’ to it while the car chase through Las Vegas resembles something of a sequence that may stick in some cinema goers minds for at least a few weeks… even though it still isn’t something as spectacular as dropping a car from a plane or jumping cars between high rise in Dubai.

What truly is remarkable here though is Greengrass’ attempt to re-capture the riots that have plagued Greece over the past few years. These sequences are absolutely brilliant and work amazingly well as a back-drop as Asset works feverishly to hunt down Parsons and Bourne. It is with sequences like these that Greengrass comes to the fore, and here he recaptures the same type of suspense that he wowed audiences with throughout ‘Captain Phillips.’ In a lot of ways these scenes are a lot better than the clichéd car chase that serves as a finale here and it will be the main thing that sticks in mind for a while to come.

We do see a vast improvement in the screenplay here as well. While characters like Asset may still be a walking cliché the sub-plot that looks at the CIA being in bed with a social media platform does raise questions such as ‘should the Government spy on us in order to keep us safe?’ while the screenplay also paints a very murky picture to what the audience should expect from Heather Lee. So often action films like this feel the need to show the audience who is good and who is bad without any grey at all. But with Lee the audience is left constantly wondering where her alliance sits. Is the just another lapdog for Dewey or does she have a soft spot for Bourne? It’s actually a relief to find a character in this genre that has the audience constantly questioning their thoughts on said character… and Bourne’s reaction to her at the end is what makes this film’s finale work despite the disappointment of the car chase.

Being written that way makes Heather a dream for a young actress to play and here Alicia Vikander doesn’t disappoint. She really is one of those actresses that just seems to shine no matter what role is thrown at her. Her recent performances in ‘Testament Of Youth’ and ‘The Danish Girl’ show what she is capable of in brilliant films, while here she follows what is written for and plays Heather as a cold, almost emotionless agent who never lets her true feelings known to anyone. While she’s not exactly working with a great script she certainly makes something of it. To her credit she holds her own as she acts alongside Tommy Lee Jones who just breezes through as the ‘bad guy’ while Matt Damon once again shows that he can still hold his own with any action star going around.

While ‘Jason Bourne’ doesn’t exactly set the world on fire or bring anything new to the action genre it is a serviceable film that certainly won’t bore its audience. Greengrass manages to make the film visually attractive but you are left wanting a big action sequence that just never eventuates (‘Star Trek Beyond’ it ain’t), still the film does more than enough to be considered ‘a thinking person’s action film.’

One Eyed Girl

Hot on the heels of Austin Film Festival’s early line-up announcement which includes the World Premiere of  “One Eyed Girl”, The Backlot Films is proud to announce its plans to release the South Australian psychological thriller in Australian cinemas during the first quarter of 2015.

Starring Tilda Cobham-Hervey (52 Tuesdays) and Mark Leonard Winter (Healing, Van Demons Land), with a gripping screenplay by Matthews and Craig Behenna, One Eyed Girl follows the story of a psychiatrist (Winter) haunted by the death of a former patient, who stumbles upon a Doomsday cult and battles to save a teenage girl (Cobham-Harvey) from its clutches.

Co-founder and director of The Backlot Films, Tony Ianiro says, “Upon our first meeting with David Ngo many months ago, we encountered the same level of passion that he had for his craft which Mark (D’Angelo) and I have for Backlot. There was clearly a positive chemistry from the get go.

“David Ngo’s Projector Films, The Backlot Films and industry publicity and marketing specialists Jameson PR will combine to execute a fresh and unique campaign in the lead up to the theatrical release of ‘One Eyed Girl’ in 2015.

“In many respects, this is a unique project for us as it marks not only our involvement as distributor, but also as the first feature film in which The Backlot Studios, Melbourne was utilised to conduct the final audio mix, using our in house audio team at Backlot Post (Mark D’Angelo & Craig Jannson) in collaboration with one of the best audio re-record mixers in the world, Phil Heywood (The Lego Movie, The Great Gatsby, The Lord Of The Rings trilogy).

“The film itself is charismatic, honest and rich in production values, whilst the subject matter depicted in ‘One Eyed Girl’ – ‘a cult and its laws of attraction’ will remain with viewers long after they have witnessed it.

Our next phase is to introduce the film to our exhibition partners. We will create a long lead campaign and endeavour to get exhibition and media genuinely excited about One Eyed Girl in the lead up to its release.

“We are fortunate to have access to the filmmakers and key cast for in cinema Q&As across the country, pre-release – a strong indication that veryone attached to this project is committed…..it’s now time to make it happen!”

Produced by David Ngo and Co-Written by Craig Behenna, as part of the SA Film Corporation’s Filmlab program, this film creates a confronting indictment of an ethically lost and alienated society where the blind indeed seem to lead the blind.

Ngo says, “We are so excited to have our film open at the prestigious Austin Film Festival. To know your film will screen in front of people like Tommy Lee Jones, James Franco, Matthew Weiner and Lawrence Kasdan is a huge honour and also, quite frankly, scary as hell.

“We can’t wait to then follow this up with the release in Australia with Backlot. As a filmmaker there’s nothing quite like watching people lining up and buying popcorn to see your movie.

“There’s no doubt the cast will go on to do many big things. Hollywood’s already knocking on young Tilda’s door and I think people will be blown away by Mark’s performance. He really reminds me of a young Daniel Day Lewis.”

The “One Eyed Girl” creative team was selected by a panel of assessors including Margaret Pomeranz (At The Movies), and producer Bridget Ikin (My Year Without Sex, Look Both Ways) to develop the film through the SAFC’s FilmLab program where they were mentored by acclaimed filmmaker Rolf de Heer (Charlie’s Country, Ten Canoes, Bad Boy Bubby).

After two years of writing, casting began in 2012 and used a combination of traditional avenues and social media to discover some of its younger cast members. Having already cast Mark Leonard Winter in the lead male role of Travis, the ‘Search for Grace’ and ‘Search for Marcus’ online campaigns attracted over 600 applicants from all over the world and finally chose Matthew Crook to play Marcus and for the title role, then seventeen year old Tilda Cobham-Hervey, who has been described by Variety magazine as one of five up-and-coming actresses to watch. The film also stars Steve Le Marquand (Rake, Vertical Limit).

Filming began in December 2012 on an isolated farm in the hills of Adelaide. This hugely ambitious film was also the first feature for many of the heads of department – Production Designer Anny Duff, Cinematographer Jody Muston and Make-Up Artist Rebecca Buratto.

“One Eyed Girl” will open in Australian cinemas in early 2015, distributed by The Backlot Films.

Dave Griffiths’s ‘Lincoln’ Review: 

Director Steven Spielberg (War Horse, The Adventures Of Tintin) is not normally known for his dialogue filled dramas, sure he loves to incorporate themes into his films but normally those films are also full of well-shot action sequences. But ‘Lincoln’ is a little different, ‘Lincoln’ sees Spielberg delve into a historic dialogue driven film that may be enjoyable to watch but certainly could have used a little bit more action.

Taken from a novel by Doris Kearns Goodwin ‘Lincoln’ sees President Abraham Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis – Nine, There Will Be Blood) ruling over a country that is self-destructing amidst a horrendous Civil War. Determined to see the Way bring some good to the country Lincoln decides that it is time to change the 13th Amendment and see slavery abolished.

But in order to do that Lincoln has to go against the suggestions of his right-hand man, William Seaward (David Strathairn – The Bourne Legacy, No God No Master) and begin to lobby other congress members (such as Clay Hawkins (Walton Goggins – Officer Down, Django Unchained)) so they will change their stance on slavery in The South.

Aside from that Lincoln also faces crisis on the family front with his wife Mary Todd Lincoln (Sally Field – The Amazing Spider-Man, TV’S Brothers & Sisters) struggling mentally after the loss of their child and his eldest son Robert Lincoln (Joseph Gordon-Levitt – Looper, The Dark Knight Rises) determined to be able to fight in the Way even if it means going against his father’s wishes.

The fact that Spielberg has gone for a full dialogue and drama onslaught does have it pros and cons. While it gives actor Daniel Day-Lewis the opportunity to pull off one of Hollywood’s best ever performances it also holds back the film. It becomes painfully obvious that screenwriter Tony Kushner comes from a theatre background when you realise that despite the film is set during the Civil War you hear more actors talking about the war then what you see of footage from it… it’s almost like Kushner has forgotten that in film it is okay to spend a little bit of cash and actually film something rather than just talk about.

Spielberg seems to also surprisingly under use some of his cast members. While Walton Goggins gets to showcase the acting ability that made him such a big hit on ‘The Shield’ and Tommy Lee Jones puts in one of his finest efforts for years, poor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is horribly under used for an actor of his talents while Sally Field is horribly miscast as Mary Todd Lincoln.

If you enjoy historically accurate dramatic films then you will enjoy ‘Lincoln’ but if you enjoy films with a little bit of action then this certainly isn’t the film for you.
