The Bourne Legacy Reviews

Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall

It's watchable, but doesn't have enough sense of character or purpose to make us care about anything that happens

Jeffrey M. Anderson
San Francisco Examiner

It's a mostly unnecessary addition to the smart, exciting "Bourne" trilogy.

Jeremy Renner steps into this reboot of the "Bourne" franchise and the series doesn't miss a beat.

Moviedex

The Bourne Legacy exists only as a failed attempt to squeeze more juice out of a once-reputable franchise, which is hardly a legacy worth leaving.

CraveOnline

If this is the legacy of the Bourne franchise, we're better off just forgetting all about it.

Cole Smithey

"The Bourne Legacy" is a better than competent spy thriller that pays off on its promise to push up the spectator's blood pressure.

American Profile

After one of the best chase sequences of any movie this year, it literally slams into an ending that doesn't feel very much like an ending at all, leaving viewers adrift in a sea of unanswered spy questions.

Matt's Movie Reviews

When it comes to action filmmaking Tony Gilroy still has much to learn, namely: don't expect underwhelming action sequences to be a life preserver in an ocean of complicated plot devices.

Brent Simon
Screen International

An intelligent, fantastic piece of well constructed pop entertainment that has a certain air of erudite emotional remove.

Tim Martain
The Mercury

It falters a little bit and it's really just an effort to keep a lucrative franchise alive without its iconic star, but it still seems to have plenty of life left in it.

Matt Neal
The Standard

It's as good a story as you can hope when you're trying to keep a franchise afloat without the main character, but it still feels a little underdone.

Reeking of a desperate attempt to keep a valuable franchise afloat ...

There comes a point at which you have enhanced soldiers fighting with non-enhanced people stuck in the middle...where you're just remaking Terminator 2.

Matthew Toomey
ABC Radio Brisbane

Jeremy Renner can't quite match the charm of Matt Damon in the leading role but it's hard to fault his passionate, energetic performance.

Full Review Source: ABC Radio Brisbane | Original Score: B+

August 18, 2012

The film is too well-made and too well-paced to reek of cynicism...But rather than leaving you yearning for yet more Bourne, this exhausting fourth installment is more likely to have you citing one of the clearly stated themes in the film: "no more".

an accelerated action movie riff on "Flowers for Algernon"

A bloated waste of time.

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

Even without Jason Bourne and the corresponding Matt Damon, it's a well-cast and well-done continuation of the series.

The Ooh Tray

Lacks the tight plotting that characterised the first three movies.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Manages at one and the same time to feel very propulsive without actually going anywhere in particular or having much of a point.
