Serviceable Addition to the Series

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.

The Bourne Legacy

Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz are good in this film. Edward Norton plays a good version of a "government ******* leader." The film is so different from Matt Damon's role and the other Bourne movies. I think you have to see it more than once in order to switch gears. Basicly, "The Bourne Legacy" is about taking you "genetically" into the undercover government program and showing you that "another one has gotten away." The film does come at you from a new angle. It is slower paced with some action and one disturbing scene. Mostly, I liked the hidden chemistry between Renner and Weisz's characters.

Not Jason Bourne

The movie was slow, not much action until the last 30-45 min. Camera work during the chase scene was too fragmented. Tries to tie things together with the series, but found myself not really caring.

Bourne Legacy

I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get into the movie because Matt Damon would not be starring in it, but as the movie progressed I really started to get into it. Great movie to see on the big screen. Action packed throughout the whole movie.

Action movie, but not a Bourne Movie

This is not your typical Bourne Movie. It mentions Treadstone and Blackbriar, shows some of the original characters but that is a close as Bourne as it gets. This is an action movie with fight scenes and chases and I enjoyed that part. I am glad I went to see it others that went with me were not.
