Preferred over the first 3 Bourne films

I've never been a Matt Damon fan, so this movie was already an improvement due to his absence. Jeremy Renner did a helluva lot more with his character, and made him human in addition to kickass. Caution: if you're looking for balls to the wall action, you'll be disappointed. If you love Matt Damon and his character, you'll be disappointed. If you're looking for a movie that will leave you wanting more and was an excellent set up for future movies, go see it!

Want to see this again

If you saw the first three this movie makes sense but if you were new to this series it might be confusing. Even so, this movie was great. I did miss Matt Damon but Jeremy Renner is a great actor as well and fits this movie great. I am thinking there is going to be another just because of the way it ends. So maybe Jason Bourne and Aaron Cross will be back together. Maybe to help Pam Landy. Hmm you just never know. Go see this!!

Bourne Legacy

Was different then the other Bourne movies. More story behind the scenes and not as much chasing. It's strange as the story has parts from the last Bourne movie and actors that were killed are in this movie. Great acting by Jeromy and Rachel. Maybe a setup for a next movie with Jeremy Renner and Matt Damon!

It is a pop fly

This movie was a pop fly in the bottom of the 9th inning with the bases loaded. The thing that will make it a hit that scores in the future is its sequel(s) and there had better be a sequel or this movie is a definite OUT. I loved the acting but it was a bit SLOW to start and you almost lost me ZZZ!!! In that first hour just setting things up; action/storyline... The sequel will be that runner on 3rd making it home and the infielder misses that catch that allows the movie to score... This is a 3 ½ star movie... One thing more don't kill off Rachel Weisz in the sequels, she is the star that makes this film click need I said say more than mentioning the bomb of the final Mummy without her CRASH N BURN!!! So this is a good not great start to the next phase in the Bourne franchise....

I wanted more...

It took me a bit off guard when I saw a character I knew was dead in the previous film in this one, but then I realized this movie overlapped the previous. I was okay with that, and thought it a bit clever, but also felt that they spent too much time with that. There seemed to be limited action scenes to me, and the last one lasted way to long. It was a bit anticlimactic to me. I wanted a bit more from this film. Maybe in the sequel it will be about him hunting them and it will better.
