The Bourne Legacy Appropriately Titled [VIDEO]
It’s the legacy that has been re-Bourne with new players in the game.
A parallel story line with a new character as Aaron Cross played by Jeremy Renner is introduced.
There is a lot of actionplay-out because of maybe better camera work but somewhat weaker than what we are accustomed to in the first three Bourne Movies.
A super spy program known as Outcome that terminates its own at the same time Aaron is learning the truth of the program from the aid of a scientist played by Rachel Weisz and it’s a battle with a Government dragnet.
Ed Norton stars as Retired Air Force Colonel Eric Beyer who oversees the super spy program that appears to become public knowledge and it’s his duty to destroy all knowledge that the program ever exsisted which in turns means killing all it’s super spies.
Stacy Keach and Scott Glenn also appear in the film as supporting cast, so a fairly strong cast but not enough substance. I thought too many chase sequences in this episode, in the earlier films that stared Matt Damon once he discovered his abilities it was off to the races.
I will ad there’s no re-inventing the wheel here so worth the dime to keep the legacy alive.
My brother Brett Martin has his take on the film and here’s his review and rating with the copy-written Flick-O-Meter.
