This is not meant to be an extension to the Matt Damon franchise and doesn't try to be. It is very good in it's own right and has to be viewed as a stand-alone, parallel story that uses references to the on-going Bourne saga to place it in context. Very well paced and filled with detail, it should more than satisfy any follower of the 'Bourne' trilogy and makes a worthwhile addition to the series, adding a little more meat to the hard-crunched bones of the main story. It probably deserves a sequel all of its' own....

I had hopes for Legacy, as Renner's a good actor and a change of performer isn't always the be-all and end-all of a series (look at Bond). On watching it, I'm happy to say that not only is it rich in atmosphere and a familiar sense of never quite knowing who might betray who, but also full of punchy, thrilling action sequences. Renner makes a conflicted, multi-layered hero. At times he seems likeable, at others verging on amoral and bitter. It makes for fun viewing. Weisz's scientist is enjoyable and she gets some great scenes, her chemistry with Renner working pretty well. Norton is good but feels a little wasted as he largely just fills the same role as Chris Cooper did in the Bourne Identity - ie: "Where is he? Get him!"
The integration of Legacy with Ultimatum's timeline (many of the third Bourne movie's events happen in the background or are referred to in TV news reports) enriches the new film and makes it feel part of the same world.
The Blu-Ray quality is very good as well, with the snowy scenes crisp and stark, and the sound excellent.
As a director, Gilroy is terrific, and many of the hand to hand fight scenes carry the same breathless intoxication of speed and heart-in-mouth shock of those in 'The Bourne Identity' - there's no doubt Renner and his director can cope with action.
If the film has any flaws, it's that the new bad guys are thinly sketched, the film is a blatant set-up for a new franchise, and essentially it has no plot beyond "Get him!" - a fact that is so well hidden by the well-paced action that it only really struck me as the credits started to roll and I had a moment of "What...that's it? Where's the big scheme or nefarious plan???"
Nevertheless, it's a great opener for a series that now carries refreshed potential.

I won't go into the detail of the plot but will say that I was given this as a present and it was some months before I saw it. The reason was that I was so impressed with the first three films, their direction and Matt Damon's performances that I felt nothing could come up that standard. It's impossible not to compare Legacy with the previous three Bourne films and I don't want to get into a blow by blow comparison so I will say that, having eventually watched Legacy quite a while ago, I have now watched it at least a dozen times. Every so often I revisit it for the story, the direction and the excellent acting of all concerned. I certainly can't say it is better or worse than the previous three because it is simply different. It is compelling, well-written, grips from beginning to end (I don't get the slump in the middle a previous reviewer mentions - where is it?). Principal actor Jeremy Renner's style is inevitably different from Damon's, Gilroy's direction is inevitably different from Greengrass's, so my advice is enjoy it for what it is and don't bother too much with comparisons.
There is nothing lacking here in action, a cohesive story, or the feel that is in the background of the other films. Slightly going against my own advice here: I would say that Greengrass's passion for a certain integrity and the underlying message of our distrust of authority is present but not as evident here, but that is not a reason to mark it as other than an excellent watch. It's simply different. The character-driven nature of the first three films isn't so much in evidence here - this one is story-driven - and I hope the next film brings character out a bit more - but my advice is buy it, enjoy it, and enjoy it some more.

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.
