The Bourne Legacy felt like a diet version of the rest of the Bourne installments. There were a few interesting things with what passes for a mythology in this series but ultimately there was just something missing behind the eyes. The part where Rachel Weisz warned about the cops coming into the hotel was hysterical but if they use that fucking Moby song for the credits one more time so help me fucking God!
A film that proves to be merely competent in areas where the Greengrass/Damon films excelled, which is perhaps what makes it so disappointing. Indeed, Damon's shadow looms large over the film, with "Ultimatum" footage spliced in. One senses that the movie could have potentially stood on its own two feet if it wasn't so damn afraid to try, although director Tony Gilroy lacks Greengrass' talent for visceral action.
Good follow up in the sense that it tries not to replicate the visual look, pace or tone of the trilogy. In my mind this movie has more to do with 70's paranoia/political thrillers than modern action movies. Sure, the director is a bit skimpy on the action but I think that works in favour of the movie. This is more about plot and characters than getting to the next car chase.
boring,i don't know why,but this movie is truly an epic nonsense,love the Bourne Ultimatum flashback scene,but still,the rest is shit,this film shouldn't be named The Bourne Legacy,i prefer "The Boredom Legacy"
