Rated PG-13 · 135 minutes · 2012

Action, Thriller
When Universal decided to forge ahead with the Bourne franchise after Matt Damon, aka Jason Bourne, decided to call it quits, they were most assuredly looking for a glorious changing of the guard—something akin to when Daniel Craig took over for Pierce Brosnan as 007. Instead, what they got with The Bourne Legacy is something closer to the vibe when Roberto Benigni replaced Peter Sellers in the Pink Panther franchise. Jeremy Renner is a good actor, but he doesn’t command a movie like Damon can, no matter how good The Hurt Locker was. The plot feels like a poor, scraped-together excuse to keep a franchise alive longer than it should survive.
