Jason Bourne is the fifth installment in a series of entertaining action spy films based on a CIA anti-hero created by author Robert Ludlum. While continuing to evade his former employers who are out to silence him, Bourne is finally confronted with the truth about his identity. A new subplot identified as Operation Iron Hand also introduces the existence of a surveillance program which could serve in a future movie that plays on social media and conspiracy theories (Klaus Ming December 2016).
