"The Bourne Legacy" introduces a brand new hero, Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner) - an agent on the run from destruction and on a journey to discover the truth, in life-or-death stakes created by events of the first three Bourne films. Cross and Dr. Shearing (Rachel Weisz) fight to survive as CIA Ops, led by Eric Byer (Edward Norton) attempt to shut down their Operation and make everyone involved disappear for good.
Why have a film with a different director and different main character do a sequel to 3 of the best action films ever? Money I expect. The film is doomed to failure. It is not as good as the other Bourne's and if I wasn't comparing it, I would probably give it 4 *s. Plot is a bit iffy but the action sequence with the drones and the wolf was memorable.
Very enjoyable with lots of references to the original films but, you have to have seen the others to grasp what is going on, and even then it requires some head scratching....I did enjoy it and would watch it again. Rachael Weitz is her usual self, tasty....
