The Bourne Legacy by Tony Gilroy, 2012 (PG-13)

with Jeremy Renner (Avengers, The Hurt Locker), Rachel Weisz (Agora, Dream House, The Whistleblower, Constantine), Edward Norton (Primal Fear), Joan Allen (Pleasantville, Face/Off), Albert Finney, Stacy Keach, Oscar Isaac (Drive, Agora), David Strathairn (The Whistleblower), Scott Glenn (The Virgin Suicides)

Following the Jason Bourne debacle, the CIA finds itself dealing with a familiar threat when another estranged operative surfaces. Jeremy Renner stars alongside Edward Norton, Rachel Weisz and Joan Allen.

I cannot be fully honest about that one. We went to the movies and watched it in a large screen, like an action film is best watched. But instead, we got a tiny screen, and the sound equalizer was set on sound effect and soundtrack, instead of a normal equalizing which would also allow to hear the dialogues. So there I was missing most of the dialogues, since if not covered by the sound design, definitely really low. Nevertheless, the action is breathtaking, the acting excellent (I was amazed by the cast, really impressive), the dialogues I understood were rising the level of action movie, with an intelligent plot, spy of course. Now I wonder how much freedom they took on the books of Ludlum, but it was definitely an interesting development.

  1. Though it may not be as great as the original franchise, there is still a great amount of thrilling elements in this film to keep any Bourne fan alive and well while watching. Also, Renner makes a great, new hero that we can all stand and root for, even if he isn’t the same exact character as Jason Bourne. Nice review Isabelle.
