Love the franchise, and will probably see "Legacy" again, but would't be surprised if many found this "talking-head action flick" a disappointment.
Jeremy Renner is great as Aaron Cross, but his action scenes were too few and inferior to what we've seen from Matt Damon's Jason Bourne. If you're going to give us a car chase, give us something new. I thought the chase was at least leading up to a super mano-a-mano showdown between Aaron Cross and the guy chasing him. No spoiler from me, so let me just ask: is THAT how you take out a bad guy in an action film? Also, the story's conclusion was too neat.
I like the intricacies of Tony Gilroy's screenplay, but as a director he's no Paul Greenglass. Importantly, Gilroy did show that the criminals were NOT brought to justice at the end of "Bourne Ultimatum." Over the course of the next sequel or two Aaron Cross should pursue that goal -- with the assist of Jason Bourne.

I went to see it last night and I am going again today and taking my Father, & I am a guy that almost always waits for movies to come to dvd before I see them.
Go see this movie! This is not Jason Bourne, it is a different guy who is a product of the same system, so keep that in mind and enjoy it!
Even if I had not seen the Bourne trilogy and just this one I would still love this movie.

Had to work a little to put all the concurrent story lines with the last Bourne movie in its proper place. Large audience seemed to feel a little let down at the ending as it all seemed to wrap in five minutes. Good acting all around. This is a movie that will be better appreciated when the next installment brings things together. (We hope).

The movie was excellent, it had a great story line, action scenes filled with explosions and intensity. The locations and places used in the film was beautiful, especially Alaska. Jeremy and Rachael's performance in the movie really made the film exciting to watch. This film is for adults and teens and children above 12. I will be getting this movie on blue-ray when the movie run end and it come out on DVD and blue-ray.
