Critic Review - ReelViews

The Bourne Legacy is one of Alfred Hitchcock's "refrigerator movies," in that it succeeds pretty well "in the moment" but starts to fall apart when considered in retrospect.

So you liked it when you were watching it? How does that make a movie bad?

Leaving the viewer with a bad impression and thus being less likely to be watched again is not a quality of a good movie.

Also, note that he gave the movie 2.5 out of 4 stars, which is the best rating many critics will give to a movie they didn't like.

I liked the movie up until the went overseas and the film started to fall apart and get boring. However the enjoyment factor cannot be ignored and Renner did his job and did it well, don't forget he had to go up and stand in the shoes of Matt Daemon, don't think many actors could have done as good a job. Anyways find my take on

I think I will use this guy as an indicator of which movies to watch. I will go see the ones he said are not good. To think this guy gets paid for this is insane. I thought this movie was great I found it to be very entertaining which to me is what it is all about.
