The Bourne Legacy is the fourth installment in the action franchise and the first without Matt Damon. Jeremy Renner takes the lead as Aaron Cross, an operative caught up in life-or-death stakes connected to the events of the first three films. Renner and co-star Rachel Weisz serve up an entertaining espionage thriller that is a lot of fun.
The film’s only fault is that it’s not as stellar as the previous three Paul Greengrass films — yet it shares their name.
Simply put: Solid, entertaining action film in a summer that needed a good thriller. But hopefully this is not Bourne’s legacy
Award potential: None.
The ten buck review: Worth ten bucks
