The surly guy at the cabin was the only character with a personality.

Hollywood seems adamant about turning Jeremy Renner into an action star with Avengers, Mission: Impossible and now The Bourne Legacy, and I, for one, won't complain. No easy task, this, making a Jason Bourne movie without Jason Bourne, and I'm sure it's gotten some flack because of it. I think I might go on record to say I still liked Legacy more than I did Identity (my complaints there are that it ripped off too much from the superlative Ronin). The conceit is a believable one. While Bourne is making headlines in New York, the CIA is attempting to burn every connection to Treadstone, including later projects like the chemically-and-virally fueled Outcome, of which Aaron Cross (Renner) is an agent. While this franchise has had some incredible, gritty action and stunts, it's always been about the characters and the thriller elements for me. The final chase is slightly overlong, but the high standard is still maintained. The connections with Ultimatum are mostly pleasing, but really in the background, and Cross is a likeable alternative to Bourne. I'd welcome more films with him in the role.

empty story, average action scenes, and the running time should change from 2:05 to 1:30...

Zeljko Ivanek has a small part in this movie! And as usual he's a very convincing spoiler man ;)

After the reception it got on release I was expecting this to be mediocre or perhaps underrated, but I thought it was mostly just boring. Not even close to any of the Damon films.

Ironically, as the only one that's not left me wanting a sequel, it's also the only one that doesn't wrap everything up.

I don't know why I found the Manila setting funny yet awkward at the same time. I was cracking up the whole climax.

Just Ok movie but nothing in comparison to the the other bourne movies. Lacked story and takes forever. No need for 2 hours and 15minutes. Renner is ok, will get better if more movies will be made.

Update: I'm watchin' all 5 movies again and no need to update my review above of 5 years ago.

Pretty much the same as the others, except with real acting from the lead but not much more material.

Well, I liked it. It was terribly confusing at first, but everything made sense along the way. Absolutely loved the chemistry between Rachel Weisz and Jeremy Renner. While the plot may not live up to the former Bourne movies, it is a perfectly fine movie on it's own and I think Renner makes an excellent spy. So there. I enjoyed it immensely.

Terrible script, terrible pacing, terrible length, terrible characters. Terrible. Took a lot of willpower to sit through all that.

A perfectly well made, often exciting spy thriller, sadly diminished by the fact it is set in the Bourne universe and cannot hold a candle to that entirely superior action trilogy. When you realise, along with super-agent Aaron Cross that Bourne's actions have doomed him and all his fellow super-agents there's a palpable thrill of an exciting film ahead after a slow start. He has to vanish and also save the targeted doctor who can help him track down the chemicals that are keeping him super and also alive (a strange and unlikely requirement for agents who may be undercover and on long missions without access to their special pills). When the action does start it kicks in marvellously - the house siege is particularly good - but somehow it all feels less than the sum of its parts. Renner and Weisz are good, the rest of the cast struggle with horribly underwritten roles - Norton in particular, who just looks tired. It never outstays it's welcome, but the end is so abrupt I felt short-changed of another decent set-piece. No classic, but a decent action film if you can forget Jason Bourne's altogether more thrilling story running alongside.

takes everything good about the original trilogy (focus on pure physicality, Damon's charismatic and well-crafted lead, the love interests and government agents actually being characters instead of walking titles), removes it, and amplifies all the bad parts (awful shaky cam and action). takes laughable sci-fi turns, has no characters, and is filmed like a parody of spy films. if the first scene of Damon's return to the Bourne series isn't his character having to kill Aaron Cross, we'll have failed as a culture.
