Review: 'The Hunter's Prayer' is familiar but forgettable

He remembers everything.

But he doesn't know everything.

That, in three short sentences, is the setup for Matt Damon's return to the Bourne franchise. Damon played the action antihero in three films before he gave way to Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross in The Bourne Legacy. The good news for...
