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.

Overall a good movie, not as much action as the other Bourne series, but the dialog supported the movie fine. Although I would say NWIH that car could keep up with a motorcycle in Manilla traffic...

It was okay and I didn't mind seeing it in the theatre, but the other 3 Bourne movies were better. I will still watch the original Bourne movies but I doubt I will watch this one again.

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.
