"Jason Bourne" gets off on the wrong foot by having a lame title. I guess the idea was to recover from the flop that was "The Bourne Legacy" by promising viewers that Jason Bourne would actually be involved in this one. But what it's unofficially promising to do is break from the hot streak of the first three "Bourne" movies. Fans of the franchise expect the movies to be titled "The Bourne (something vaguely exciting)" Who cares if people like to make fun of these titles ("The Bourne Colonoscopy"), they're essential to the way people identify the franchise.
