Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon delivered a great trilogy, even if Greengrass couldn't keep the camera still for more than a few seconds all three of the films were action packed and very entertaining. Now i know a lot of people will disagree with this review but i actually preffered Legacy to the first two films in the Damon trilogy, and liked it as much as Ultimatum.
Jeremey Renner proved himself a great actor in Avengers and Mission Impossible ghost protocol, and so he handles the action like a pro. Racheal Weisz is a far better female lead than Franka Potente and Edward Norton is brilliant alongside some old, but brief, appearances by characters we know from the Bourneiverese.
Set simultanesouly against the events of the Damon trilogy, the Bourne Legacy follows Aaron Cross who is being hunted down, like Jason Bourne. Rachael Weisz's character is dragged along when she becomes a target as well. Admittedly the plot is simpler than its predecessors but oddly i don't think that hindered my enjoyment at all. What's great about this new addition is Tony Gilroy who is far supreior to Greengrass as a director, he can hold the camera still but handles the action very well, making it urgent and involving for the audience. The action set pieces are exhilarating; the climax chase scene and dash across the rooftops of a Phillipines city is stirring and gripping.
Overall, die hard fans of the Damon/Greengrass trilogy may be dissapointed with the simple plot but those who aren't trying too hard to make comparisons will undoubtedly be gripped by the stirring action, brilliant direction and star turns from Renner and Weisz. Froget the first trilogy, don't try to compare them and enjoy it.
Unfortunately there are absolutely no extras on this DVD edition at all except a UV copy. For special features you'll need to invest in the steelbook edition or perhaps wait for an extended or special edition that may be released in the near future.
