A Good Stretch for a 4th Bourne Movie

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.

By plindquist
Written August 20, 2012
Action packed from the very beginning to the end. Nothing really resolved with the film other than to kill and/or maime NUMEROUS bad guys!! It is obvious that the series willl continue with another sequel. Not recommended for young children.

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 Bourne at all.. disappointed

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?

Serviceable Addition to the Series

By MikeLogan316

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.
