REVIEW: ‘Bourne Legacy’ Is A Slog Of A Sequel – Despite Renner Power - Movieline
The Bourne Legacy is a passable movie that has the peculiar misfortune of being part of a very successful, influential and distinctive franchise. Box office-wise, this is probably not going to be much of a hardship, but in terms of content and style it definitely suffers in comparison. The Bourne predecessors, particularly the two directed by Paul Greengrass, are by my count some of the most exhilarating action movies in recent cinematic history. The Bourne Legacy is not.
