The Bourne Legacy takes the action-packed Bourne series to an explosive new level. On the verge of having their conspiracy exposed, members of the government’s intelligence community will stop at nothing to erase all evidence of their top secret programs – even the agents involved. Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner) must use his genetically-engineered skills to survive the ultimate game of cat-and-mouse and finish what Jason Bourne started. Also starring Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz and Academy Award® nominee Edward Norton, critics are calling this a "thrilling, edge-of-your-seat heart-pounder” (Meg Porter Berns, WSVN-TV (FOX), Miami).

    It is an excellent story about why things are the way they are for the assassins. Renner did a great job. Rotten Tomatoes reviews are nonsense, do not trust their judgment.

  • The best of the Bourne movies

    By DougSea
    I was actually disappointed when Matt Damon reversed his position and did his 4th Bourne film (it was a major disappointment). I really would love to see another Jeremy Renner film.
  • Great

    By Zheng Guan
    I dont know where the negative comments come from. Maybe the previous trilogy was too successful and "Arron" is not good as "Jason". I do think if you conncet the storyline paired with the trilogy. It is a pretty well produced movie.
  • Just didn’t click

  • Good but.....

    By puzuti
    With good action sequences, all the twist and turns, and a bit of gritty ness, Renner could have definitely Succeeded Damon... if the ending didn’t fall flat on it’s face. My only problem with the movie is the ending being way to week. Seriously, who thought (spoiler alert) a simple car chase and a non major Asset being killed was a grade A ending? Still pretty good movie.
  • Great Bourne Movie

    By Michael7293
    Jeremy Renner does a great job and the plot is great! This is my favorite Bourne Movie. I would love to see Renner team up with Matt Damon for a movie!
  • Out-Ludlums Ludlum; The Best Bourne Movie Ever

    By 30-30_Man
    As an avid reader of Robert Ludlum since the late-1970s, I can tell you unequivocally that "Bourne Legacy" is BY FAR the best rendition of ANY Ludlum story for film or television. That it was not even written by Ludlum, but by Tony & Dan Gilroy, reveals how deeply the Gilroy brothers understand Ludlum's storytelling craft and character writing. Anyone who downgrades or dislikes this movie simply because Matt Damon isn't in it has no true knowledge or appreciation of Robert Ludlum and, to me, doesn't warrant legitimacy as a "reviewer." I believe Ludlum would not only have liked this movie the best out of all the Bourne attempts, but also that he would have ONLY liked this picture. "Bourne Legacy" captures the heart and spirit of Ludlum's work. "Ultimatum" places second, but none of the others, including the recent and disappointing "Jason Bourne," comes close. What's best about this picture is the plausibility of the story and the substantial weight given to the female lead character, played excellently by Rachel Weisz. In all the other Bourne movies, we're expected to swallow that Bourne is "trying to find himself." For four movies? Gimme a break. Also, except for the Pamela Landy character, none of the female roles was much more than two-dimensional. In "Jason Bourne," Greengrass had an opportunity to further develop the promise of the Landy and Nicky Parson characters, featuring two skilled actresses with great screen presence (Joan Allen & Julia Stiles), but he ignored one and killed off the other. To me, that's the writing of a 98-pound weakling. Gilroy didn't make such a mistake in "Legacy." Nor did he ask us to swallow an implausible storyline about Bourne trying to come to grips with what he'd become. Here, the agent knows exactly who he is, just as he's hip to the deception and betrayal on the part of his employers. And Jeremy Renner's performance of the PFC Kenneth Kitsom/Aaron Cross/Outcome 5 character, is outstanding. Also, unlike the absurd, implausible & irresponsible Las Vegas car demolition in "Jason Bourne," "Bourne Legacy" featured one of the most incredible motorcycle chases & stunt scenes I've ever seen (Dan Bradley directed the 2nd unit on the busy streets of Manila). "Bourne Legacy" adds brilliant context to the Jason Bourne saga. If you don't watch it or don't get it, then you don't get Robert Ludlum at all. It's likely that those who've rated this movie low have never turned a page of a Robert Ludlum-authored story. I say "Shame on Universal Pictures and Kennedy/Marshall for ruining the franchise," for taking a huge step backward with "Jason Bourne," and for not appreciating the value that Gilroy brought. The brilliance of "Bourne Legacy" is that it could've opened the door to a truly compelling extension of the Bourne saga. Sans Matt Damon.
