Brief Synopsis:
Events triggered by Jason Bourne ripple through the rest of the world, as consequences are shown through another agent of a classified program, Aaron Cross.

A film that spends too much time trying to wrap up the previous entry in Act I, and not enough time with our new hero. A Burnt Outcome tries to cut down the opening 15 minutes of the film, while carefully trimming a few over the top action elements, and adds back 3 new deleted scenes to advance the plot and improve the characters.
Intention:
Watching the film, the opening really dragged for me as I couldn't quite tell what to expect from the film as it overlapped with the previous film, and didn't seem to do much for me. After watching the deleted scenes, I loved them and was wondering why the hell they'd be cut.

I didn't think I'd do a straight extended cut, but wanted to tackle the film and cut a few other things, mainly the opening, the travelling to Manilla and a few of the bike chase action beats, just to move things along quickly.

CĀ“mon People! Watch it !
Its faster.
Its direct.
Its Action.
Its Fun.
The original is a good entry in a good series of films and this Cut makes it better.

We have a direct introduction to our "hero" and this edit gives you the deleted scenes back, that really make it an intressting Rewatch and also a First watch.

I dont need to tell you that the Cuts and Edits Bobson does are great (you know that, and i fou you dont: What?)
