A decent way to extend the franchise
When I saw "The Bourne Identity" originally, I was weary of Matt Damon carrying an action movie but I was proven wrong. I felt weary of the Bourne series carrying on without Matt Damon while still tying him to the story with Jeremy Renner taking his place after Damon proving me wrong 3 movies in a row. I have to admit, this is a very complex movie because it goes back and forth between Renner's "Aaron Cross" and the complications Bourne stirred up for the intelligence community and the search for him still. The amazing thing is that manages to weave everything together in a very cohesive way so that you don't feel like you're watching 2 disjointed movies. All the actors are in top form, the script is solid, and the intensity of the actual events unfolding are just as interesting as the action sequences that occur throughout the film. The reason I didn't rate "Must Go" is that I thought the movie could've been cut shorter and been just as good (the beginning dragged at times for me).
