Despite regurgitating elements from the founding trilogy, "Jason Bourne" represents the best the series has yet offered.
At only 96 minutes, "Nerve" is short enough not to overstay its welcome and, despite a lackluster final 20 minutes, it proves to be solidly entertaining.
Director/writer Matt Ross offers moments of genuine power and pathos that make it easy to forgive the missteps.

"Star Trek Beyond" is a Star Trek movie, although not an especially good one.
Younger kids will have fun with the movie. Adults - well, that’s another story.
It’s a shame to see a clever premise developed in such an underwhelming fashion.
As funny as the material sometimes is, the flimsy narrative encounters difficulties trying to sustain a 90 minute motion picture.
A mediocre horror/comedy that deserves neither high praise nor disparagement.
Made for those who prize acting, slow-burn suspense, and narrative over the usual loud, empty summertime fare.
An entertaining but inconsequential animated movie with a strong "Toy Story" influence.
