I wasn't sure if Jeremy Renner could shoulder a series that Matt Damon has made his own. Yet he manages to be a more grounded action star. Even if the sparks between him and Rachel Weisz are a bit weak, the action scenes (especially the motorcycle chase) are excellent. Action fans will be happy and I think the series is in good hands should they continue.

Left me wanting more!

Jeremy Renner (Number 5 Aaron Cross) plays another super-soldier who’s out in the Alaska snowy wilderness in a training exercise. It's not long before Washington types decide that the program is in danger of being exposed potentially leading to further revelations of the "Blackbriar" and "Treadstone" programs. This cannot be tolerated and therefore "Outcome" has to go, which basically means that their super-soldiers are to be terminated and the people associated with it.

Renner survives their attacks from the remotely controlled weaponized-drones and he wants answers as to what is going on from the woman who worked on him when he started at Treadstone, Dr. Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz). He also seeks the medication that apparently all subjects need to take to help them increase their s...

Haphazard flat and wandering Bourneless film

Directed by Tony Gilroy

Starring Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton

Grade : C

The Bourne Legacy should be the last bourne film I hope. This entirely new concept has no relation to Jason Bourne series. The title legacy has nothing to do with the bourne. Yes director would have thought for bringing in another Jason bourne movie. That’s fine. But without Jason Bourne ?? Not a good idea! So what he does in here? He brings in Aaron Cross, whose identity is not known till a point in the movie. Showing jason Bourne in television channel would not save the film. Where is Bourne in the film ? This is the question audience would think after coming out. I expected climax to reveal the whereabouts of Bourne. Nope! I am totally disappointed. So where is the point of another movie in t...

Aaron run!

The Bourne trilogy contains some of the best action / espionage films ever created. They are extremely well scripted, acted and executed, and really raised the bar for what is possible for these types of movies. When that trilogy came to an end, many people were still thirsty for more (especially considering how fantastic the final film was). However, director Paul Greengrass and the series star Matt Damon would not be returning. How can you continue a franchise without the main character? Do you make a reboot, prequel, or a sequel that focuses on somebody new? Well, the answer to that, more or less, is all of the above. The events of this film run parallel with The Bourne Ultimatum, while fleshing out background info from previous installments while simultaneously building things up ...

The Bourne Legacy is a weak film that exists as nothing more than a sore tit hanging from a cash cow that's spent already.  Bourne Identity through Bourne Ultimatum had a complete story, told well.  The first thirty minutes is a redundant back-and-forth between Renner walking around snow and trees, and Edward Norton delivering the same speech three times about "how serious this situation is".  The plot is finally found roughly 45 minutes in, and then rushes to an anti-climactic final chase scene in which the hero and the girl escape with nothing more than a few scratches.  A terrible waste of time, the script was so bad that Matt Damon stayed away from it entirely, which is why Renner was hired.  Although Edward Norton is clearly the villain, he has no interaction with Renner, which in turn gives the audience nothing to go on that this conflict will have any conclusion.  And that's how the movie ends, without a conclusion to the conflict.

1st of all his last name is Renner, not Ryans. You dont know much about Renner if thats your opinion. Overall, I believe he is a better overall actor than Damon. He started his career a little later, but the dude can act and can play a badass. Hes great in the Hurt Locker and The Town to name just a couple. I think he is more believable and can play more different types of characters than Damon. I like Damon a lot and hes made a lot of great flicks, but Renner is the man now and you will see in the near future this dude will be play some great parts and start to get the real recognition he deserves.

Jeremy Renner is great as Aaron Cross. he's younger, more likable and in better shape than Matt Damon, at least in Ultimatum where Damon was overweight. He's also less wooden in his interactions with other people.

I am just a little disappointed with the fact that they have replaced Matt Damon with Jeremy Ryans. They could have replaced him with some better choice.

Not to completely hijack my own thread, but great to hear that "The Campaign" was good. The trailers, the red band one especially, made it look like Will Ferrell was back in true form. We were planning to see "The Campaign" this weekend but it's too freakin' gorgeous outside to pass up enjoying the mild summer weather.
