On Friday night, exactly at 18.45 pm of Depok time, I went to Depok plaza to watch a movie entitled “Jason Bourne.” I watched this movie together with ibu Teni and kak Yani. They were both teaching English at LBA LIA – Depok. What a pleasant treat for me to watch this movie for free. It was my first time to watch a box office movie in Cinema XXI. I went to this place after a Friday class of learning English for Academic Research with Dr. Aurora Murphy, an Australian instructor.
When I got in to the theater room, I saw a nice and clean space. Chairs were neatly arranged. The screen was clean as well. I sat in the last three lines of the room. Everything looked perfectly fine from location of seats for visitors. I sat next to ibu Teni and kak Yani. Then, the movie started.
At 09.00 pm, the movie ended. What was my impression about this movie? It was an extraordinarily masculine, but at the same time it was a technologically gentle movie. It sounds complex, huh? First of all, what was obvious for me from this film is that the character ‘Jason Bourne’ was performed nicely. The actor performed his acting in playing out Bourne as if he blended in with the character. The character and the actor are as if one person. Not only the image of main character that stood out in the movie, ways of the technology being used in hunting for Bourne was amazing to me. How would it be possible to call someone who stayed in Italy, for instance, with such a clear voice from the United States? Besides, the way technology can get someone’s laptop and at the same time erasing its files from a far distance, to me, are so stunning and sophisticated. It just feeds my imagination on gadget stuffs.
Well, in short, this movie is worth watching for teenagers and adults. Good values and messages are still here, if you can notice them. Jason Bourne is a patriotic man to his country, but personally he loved his father dearly. I did not see the character of a mother in this movie; however, two women who were quite dominant in the plot of this movie. The first woman appeared in the delivery of files of Jason Bourne The last woman is the one who had been used by the Agency to find Jason Bourne. It turned out that these two women are the actual characters that finally killed the enemy. Isn’t that interesting? Jason Bourne played a masculine character with gentle manner, while the women have instinctive character with unnegotiable attitude toward lies. What a profound line of story!
