A funny thing emerges from Paul Greengrass’ Wikipedia page: he only makes two types of movies. There are those that are hyper realistic and based on award winning non-fiction books about real dramatic events. And there are Jason Bourne movies. Keep your Clozapine to yourself, the man’s schizophrenia is a national treasure!

Hey, but now that we’ve finished joking about mental illness, here’s the international trailer, involving the love story between a really big boat, a really little boat, and all the wonderful people on both. Fun fact: if you read the apparently Asian language subtitles in a mirror, they’re actually a love letter from Paul Greengrass to Matt Damon written in ancient Celtic runes.

I always feel sort of bad about not being interested in movies like this. It’s got all the pieces, the direction, the acting. And yet I can’t bring up the slightest enthusiasm for the actually viewing of it other than acknowledging that I’d totally watch it if nothing else was on TNT on a Saturday afternoon.

But I really hope that one of the Navy SEALs is played by Matt Damon and his name tag says “Ryan”.
