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.

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?

Just thinking about this movie makes me facepalm because, on the whole, it was a really solid. I thoroughly enjoyed it throughout and would have rated it the best Bourne since the original. The problem was the ending was comically bad; in fact, so much so that it's worth watching just to make fun of. Endings often make a movie but it's rare they turn a good movie into a horrible one. Yes it's that bad.....
What could have been a great movie, in a series that should have died 2 movies ago, was utterly ruined by one of the most stupefying endings to date.

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.

It may be called Bourne but not any action. There was more action in the bathroom scene of Bourne Ultimatum than in this whole movie. Could have been an hour shorter way too long. Wait to get it on redbox.
