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.

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 didn't end well. Plus they brought in Treadstone leaders who were locked up in Bourne Ultimatum for life for the programs they were running. Plus according to Legacy, BrightBriar is still running which was exposed and destroyed by Jason Bourne and Pamela Landy. I think this was just an introduction to the next part of Bourne with Matt Damon.I will still love to buy and add to my Bourne Collection at home.

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.

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.
