Bourne Franchise Heads In The Direction Of The Cookie-Cutter Action Flick
A far less intellectual movie., and lower quality of writing and action. Remember the scene in the first Bourne movie when Jason Bourne is in hand-to-hand combat with a fellow Treadstone operative in Germany? Very nice, detailed, thoughtful action. None of that in Legacy; just very fast, extremely blurry suggestions of fast action with the obligatory pile of bodies lying on the ground as Renner walks away. One extremely long (too long) motorbike chase through the streets of Manila, and what seemed to be some very protracted approaches to dealing with basic situations - really not a great movie.
