St. Pierre's Review: I really enjoyed it. The people behind the Bourne franchise definitely have a formula, and "Legacy" doesn't branch off too far. That's not a bad thing, though. Even though this is a continuation of the story it feels more like a reboot to the series. They dive into a lot of topics, like genetic engineering, that give you a ton of background on what these special agents go through. When compared to the previous Bourne movies, "Legacy" has a lot more background info and less action, but the action that it does feature is flawless. Jeremy Renner is much more suited for this kind of role than Matt Damon. I also really liked the attitude of Renner's character. He has a much different personality when compared to Damon's. While Damon (as Jason Bourne) was very stoic and emotionless looking for pieces to his missing memory, Renner (as Aaron Cross) has all his memory but is still very inquisitive. He wants to know what's going on with the meds he's being forced to take. Cross is even told on a few occasions that he asks too many questions.
If you're just looking for a straight forward action movie, this might not be for you. But, be assured that the next film in the series is sure to blow the roof off a theater. The continuation of the series has been set up very well.
