Not so much a Legacy....

IF you are going to see this movie because you loved the orginals and you think this is going to be a continuation of them, think again. And be advised you will be disappointed. However, if you go in with an open mind and realize that this is a new movie series you won't be too disappointed.

Jason who???

By doc_trekky
Written August 19, 2012
This movie bears no resemblance to the books by Ludlum, except for a one-liner, "Jason Bourne is in New York". He is never seen or heard of again. The plot is thinner than toilet paper and has the same usefulness. There are too many, way-too-long chase scenes that add nothing. And the chase action is seen from too close-up to appreciate the scene. Might be great for 3D if you don't care about a story.. The ending was a major let-down because it does not reolve the situation set up by the premise. The idiot director grossly over-uses the "camera rolling around the actors" leading to major dizziness trying to focus on the characters and the background. Ugh!! Loved the originals. Hated this one.

The Bourne Legacy: D+

By StanForStandards
Written May 29, 2016
Just thinking about this movie makes me facepalm because, on the whole, it was a really solid. I thoroughly enjoyed it throughout and would have rated it the best Bourne since the original. The problem was the ending was comically bad; in fact, so much so that it's worth watching just to make fun of. Endings often make a movie but it's rare they turn a good movie into a horrible one. Yes it's that bad..... What could have been a great movie, in a series that should have died 2 movies ago, was utterly ruined by one of the most stupefying endings to date. D+

A Good Stretch for a 4th Bourne Movie

By darren_averett
Written May 01, 2016
Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz are great actors. They actually make the movie. The movie picks up after the last Bourne movie with Matt Damon. It is a bit of a stretch to keep things going in this vain. But it is all a setup for another movie. While this movie did have some decent action scenes, I sincerely hope the producers read all of the viewer quotes then strive to inject serious awe into the next production.
