Product Description

The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. For The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.

Product Description

Taking place around the same time that the events in The Bourne Ultimatum, 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) with the help of Dr. Shearing (Rachel Weisz) must use his genetically-engineered skills to survive the ultimate game of cat-and-mouse against Eric Byer (Edward Norton) and finish what Jason Bourne started. Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.

By rob crawford TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I didn't have very high hopes for this film, but I was curious what they would do to go beyond the absolute perfection of the Bourne trilogy. The Damon film, which we must contrast to this offshoot, balanced many factors: Bourne was vulnerable but an expert killer (i.e. realistic), the shadowy CIA/NSA group was believable and timely, and the principal character's plight and search were compelling. Unfortunately, the Bourne Legacy doesn't quite succeed at any of these. I will attempt to go into the reasons for this without revealing plot spoilers.

First, pumped up by some kind of magical meds, the new character is more like a superhero. His abilities and even his intelligence are enhanced by biotech. In other words, we are almost if not quite in Spiderman territory. So the good guys are better, the baddies badder. Second, in its attempt to deepen the conspiracy, we learn that there is another group, never defined and perhaps more deeply entrenched, that is masterminding the new efforts. It includes scientists, military types, and some kind of ominous organization that even Ezra kowtows to. While the film is skillfully interwoven with events that were seen in the trilogy, advancing the story of Landy and her enemies, the new group feels grafted on. Third, the principal characters - played by Renner and Weisz - lack the tightness of focus that Bourne had in his need to overcome his amnesia and discover the mystery behind his conditioning. Taken together, I simply couldn't quite suspend my disbelief.

Finally, there are many holes in the film's plot - the viewer doesn't know how characters figure out certain things, e.g. when Aaron springs up in Dr. Shearing's house to save her in the knick of time. How did the new conspirators find the couple in the Philippines?

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping action, breath-snatching entertainment 28 Dec 2012
By Sam
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bourne less 16 Aug 2012
The Bourne Legacy isn't a remake or reboot or rewhatever of the Bourne movies. It's a continuation of the series with a brand new lead actor and characters. Past events from previous films are mentioned and past characters, appearances from David Straithairn, Albert Finney and Joan Allen as their characters from the movies ensure continuity yet the whole film starts afresh with a new assassin, Aaron Cross played by Jeremy Renner on the run from the same government agency hunting Bourne and they are still hunting him according to the movie it's just you don't see it here on screen. Edward Norton and Rachel Weiss are the new cast members and although good they have both done better as has Jeremy Renner as Cross. It's a slow but tense start which sees Treadstone covering their tracks by killing or silencing anyone that could uncover and reveal their work but the 2nd half of the movie has some good action. There are ways the series could continue, either returning Matt Damon to the series or by carrying on with Jeremy Renner but maybe it's time to give the series a rest. Ok and worth a watch just not as good as the first three films in the series especially the excellent The Bourne Ultimatum.
