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…
