Hopefully, once they get past the #metoo stain, they can include Damon and the rest of the cast in a future film.
As for me, the best parts of the film, the idea of my thousands of dollars becoming millions and living a life of tiny luxury, are cut short by the reality that Payne never seems to be able to shed himself. It’s really depressing at times. But not as depressing as you’d think.
“This is not like Bond. We aren’t just changing locales, women and suits here. It’s not as gadgetty or as funny as the Mission:Impossible films became after the 2nd one, either. While those film franchises used the intensity of the Bourne franchise to catapult into something better, Damon and Greengrass took the reputation well earned by the earlier films and traded it for some quick cash as a mid-range summer blockbuster.”
