Movie Review: The Bourne Legacy (2012)

I’ve never seen the Matt Damon films FYI. Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner) is part of the super solider programme of which there is a lot. Men muttering in dimly lit rooms decide the programmes need to be shut down. Eric Byer (Edward Norton of ‘Primal Fear’ and ‘Death to Smoochy’) oversees the ‘clear up’.

Marta (Rachel Weisz) is cold and a bit dim. She and Cross hook up to escape Byer’s murderous cleanup. This film was cold and populated by robots. There was yelling and stupidity. People talk about “viraling out”, people run around Manila, Cross beats people up, there is a foot chase, a bike chase, a sequel hook, bad green screen and this was okay but dull. Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn, Scott Glenn, Stacy Keach and Zeljko Ivanek feature.

Best Lines:
“If this goes any more wrong...”

“Where did you find this?”

“Publicly celebrating their top secret man-crush.”

“It would be perfectly normal for a person to have doubts about the morality of what we just asked you to do.”

“What do you think we do out there?”

“He’s going to run out of brain.”
