    The Bourne Legacy

      Unnecessary

      What would you do if the American intelligence community was hunting you? Would you surrender or simply find a dark hole to hide in? Aaron Cross, the main character of the film, doesn’t have those options. While the Central Intelligence Agency is in turmoil after the release of confidential Treadstone documents, Aaron Cross (played by Jeremy Renner) is an agent of Treadstone’s successor, Operation Outcome. Cross (Renner) is on a training mission in Alaska and arrives at a remote cabin to rendezvous and restock on medications he’s taking for reasons that we’re not made aware of. In the cabin, he meets another agent named Number Three (played by Oscar Isaac). Their ultimate supervisor, Eric Byer (played by Edward Norton) decides Outcome and the agents in the program are a liability and send a predator drone to destroy the remote Alaskan cabin while activating kill switches in other operatives stationed around the world. After removing his tracking device, Cross force feeds it to a wolf that had been stalking him for reasons beyond understanding and begins his quest for more medication. Elsewhere, at a pharmaceutical company’s headquarters, a gunman murders all of his coworkers, with the exception of Dr. Marta Shearing (played by Rachel Weisz) and then turns the gun on himself. Shearing is understandably shaken after watching one of her coworkers murder all of the others and goes home. The Agency sends a team to Shearing’s home to assess her mental state, and assure themselves that she won’t reveal confidential information. At least, that’s how they got in the door. Once inside, however, they reveal their true purpose, eliminating one more witness who could testify about Outcome. Their attempt is thwarted by Cross and, next thing you know, he and Shearing are on the run together. Now, during press interviews for The Bourne Ultimatum, Matt Damon said that, while he might reprise the role of Jason Bourne sometime in the distant future, he and Paul Greengrass might have to call the next one The Bourne Redundancy. After seeing this film, I believe that should’ve been the title. Renner had already established himself as an action star and Rachel Weisz is capable, as always. That said this movie takes all the loose ends tied off by the previous films, unties them, and leaves even more simply to allow for the possibility of a sequel. Unless and until Greengrass and Damon reunite for a new film, I’ll consider Ultimatum the last film in the Bourne series. Skip it.

      Great deal on underrated but important Bourne film

      The Bourne Legacy has been misunderstood since day one. It was not meant to reboot or replace Matt Damon's Jason Bourne, it was actually doing 2 things instead: buying time for Matt Damon to return while also expanding the Bourne world for additional characters to emerge. Taking place before, during, and after the events of Bourne Ultimatum, Legacy presents an eerie and even more disturbing premise: what if there are many more illegal black ops programs being run beyond just the one Bourne was trying to stop (Blackbriar) that the public as well as Bourne don't even know about. And what if these programs were taking human conditioning to the next level by not only "brainwashing" the assassins but enhancing them using cellular and gene therapy to boost their strength, speed, endurance, and cognitive skills. This many seem far-fetched now but this is exactly what is being researched as we speak. Tony Gilroy the director in fact confirms in the commentary that he consulted with a respected scientist/researcher about soldiers using gene/cellular therapy and the scientist confirmed that it is only a matter of time till this is put into practice in reality. If you can get past the "viral boost" aspect (which is treated well) then the movie is a solid action film with uniformly good performances, smart plotting, and essential Bourne elements including daring escapes, conspiracies, shadowy back room deals, car chases, and hand to hand combat. Plus it casts an ominous pall over the entire series when you realize that Bourne is "only the tip of the iceberg" and that there are many more "super assassins" out there doing the government's dirty work. Lastly, if you haven't seen Jason Bourne (Bourne 5, 2016), I recommending watching the original trilogy plus Legacy to get the complete backstory. The blu ray presentation is top notch with a high quality 1080p visuals and lossless DTS-HD sound plus informative extras and digital copies (UV and iTunes) so you can watch the movie on the go. If you're a Bourne fan grab Bourne Legacy at this great price!

      A surprising twist in the Bourne series

      There is a lot of conversation in the first 20 minutes of the movie, but Aaron Cross, the character played by Jeremy Renner, is silent and alone. His first line is, "I was trying to be polite." Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz are both completely believable in their roles. As are the rest of the cast, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach, et al. Renner's character is appealing whether he speaks or not. It looks as if Jeremy Renner did most of his stunts himself. Watching him run across the uneven rooftops of Manila, he looks like a skier. He is an agile, athletic actor who can be and do whatever is called for. I was also impressed by Rachel Weisz who is convincing as a scientist lost in a world of terror. You can almost hear her heart beating as the scenes explode around her. I hope they do another Bourne film with Renner & Weisz....

      GREAT MOVIE!

      This was an awesome movie. The plot was very interesting and the settings....oh the settings in the Bourne series is just amazing. It went from Berlin to Moscow to another but the Phillipines was just a great setting to film this movie. All the action was totally rad! I'm not a fan of guns but the gun parts was the best I have to say because I'm definitely NOT a fan of talking parts. Though, the actor Jeremy Renner is a good actor, an excellent actor to put it at that but Matt Damon was the character in the first 3 movies so I don't think they should've put a new character because a lot of Bourne fans are used to seeing Damon but then they recruited a new character. I mean , come one guys Damon will always fit the profile of Jason Bourne. Besides that the Bourne Legacy was a great film to watch. I would recommend this to anyone.

      I loved the continuation of the whole Jason Bourne/top-secret agent/government intelligence/conspiracy/cover up series. Who could possibly fill Jason Bourne's shoes? Maybe now that we've seen Aaron Cross, as another one of the program's agents gone solo, they'll start a new series with him. Great movie, great action scenes, plots, twists, and turns. The only thing that I absolutely didn't like was how they portrayed the wolves to be the vicious, man-eating, blood thirsty predators in the wilderness/mountains in the movie. They should have done a lot more research on the topic of wolves and not gone with the popular misconceptions of what people think wolves are like. This movie loses points w/ me in that regards. If it had a better scenario involving the wolves, or no wolves at all, I would recommend. Everything else was great.

      Yes, its well noted by now that The Bourne Legacy is just a way for Universal to make more money with a different star, and the film suffers a bit because of Matt Damon's lack of presence, but Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross is a pleasant enough diversion. The PQ and AQ is terrific with the 35mm film transfer and a scene or two of digital photography lends itself well to BluRay, with sharp, detailed images and an awesome soundfield to make you duck for cover from every gunshot heard and felt throughout. The extras are pleasant if not totally in-depth with a few features to satisfy temporarily, with the filmmaker commentary being the main draw here. The featurettes are decent as well as some deleted scenes, but overall nothing to get worked up over.

      With the latest Jason Bourne film about to hit theaters, it made sense to update my library with "The Bourne Legacy" on blu-ray. Not only am I up to date in preparing for the next film, but the purchase also provides me with an $8 voucher to be applied toward my movie ticket to see Matt Damon continue the story. Jeremy Renner gives an outstanding performance in this story as another manufactured assassin that the government has lost control of. I love the screenplay. It keeps the story driving, with an edge-of-your-seat expectation to see just where it might turn next. The filming is incredible, and captured very crisply in the blu-ray edition.

      If you like the Bourne movies this fourth one in the series, with Jeremy Renner as the test subject, gives you more in the understory of the secret soldier program. This story takes place in the same time period as the third movie; we get a little more insight into the secret soldier program and that the agency is now trying to end it, and the test subject soldiers, to bury the flaws of the program. But of course, in addition to Jason, there is at least one more 'legacy' soldier who discovers all is not right with being a robot after recieving an assignment gone awry. The fun begins and he starts looking for answers in the face of attempted assassinations...
