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.

It was okay and I didn't mind seeing it in the theatre, but the other 3 Bourne movies were better. I will still watch the original Bourne movies but I doubt I will watch this one again.

I like Jeremy Renner, and enjoyed the other Bournes, but for whatever reason, not so much this one.......

Went to the premiere out of loyalty to the original trilogy. But wow, much better then i was expected. The lack of matt damon in this movie turned me off initially. It wasnt better than the original trilogy, but this was on par with the other bourne movies. Aaron still has the vital qualities of Jason bourne, but is a totally different character. The dynamic between June and Aaron was excellent. The acting was great; production value was on par. At the end of the movie i was disappointing... because i didnt want to stop watching!

I thought it started out confusing with the different plots and scenes going on, but it was very well put together, in my opinion. Very ACTION PACKED SCENES and wonderfully done. The only thing that I questioned was "how did he get a cutting knife on the plane to cut the transparent cover"? I really enjoyed it and I think it's a must see on a big screne.
