Matt Damon returns in the fifth big-screen outing for the memory-damaged and monosyllabic government agent who first appeared in the novels of Robert Ludlum.

Director Robert Greengrass, who co-scripted with Christopher Rouse, bookends the story with extended car and motorcycle chases, with the result that vehicle casualties considerably outnumber the body count from weapons.¬†Although the number of shootings does necessitate an adult rating, the film’s lack of gore and relatively mild language makes this possibly acceptable for older adolescents — especially those who understand that the longer the car chase, the thinner the plot.

Frequent gun and physical violence, fleeting profanities. The Catholic News Service classification is A-III — adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 — parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
