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.

The movie was okay.. Nothing like the Bourne Identity versions. The movie draged on and the scenes about the pills seemed like they needed to be on drugs all the time to function? not a Bourne version at all... The fighting and action scenes were good but overall i was not impressed with the movie and without ruining the ending.. I felt like That's It?

It may be called Bourne but not any action. There was more action in the bathroom scene of Bourne Ultimatum than in this whole movie. Could have been an hour shorter way too long. Wait to get it on redbox.

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.

While the plot of "The Bourne Legacy" takes place around the time of "The Bourne Ultimatum," in some ways it felt like a reboot of "The Bourne Identity." It was a good way to introduce the world to Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross character, and for us to care about him. Renner did a nice job taking over the reins, and he and Rachel Weisz shared great chemistry.
Edward Norton plays a familiar but solid villain, while Stacy Keach, Scott Glenn, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Albert Finney have short but important roles.
Here's hoping Matt Damon can be talked into returning to the series someday, but if not, Jeremy Renner can definitely pick up the reins.
