Movie Review :The Bourne Legacy


The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. For The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.


  • Great acting by Jeremy Renner
  •  Good action scenes.


  • Takes to long for the story to really get going.
  • The last 30mins of the movie were anti-climatic
  • Parts of the plot were left unexplained
  • The last action scene seemed to go on forever


Retired Col. Eric Byer USAF: You think Jason Bourne was the whole story? Sorry, but there is a whole lot going out there that you don’t know of.

Aaron Cross: Do you want to live? Cause I wanna live.


I had high expectations for this after being a fan of the previous Bourne movies . Unfortunately this installment did not live up to the hype. It took too long to really get started , so half way through the movie you will be thinking “what is going on?” . It wasnt all bad it had good action and an interesting story line but the ending was anti-climatic and left me feeling unsatisfied.
