The Bourne Legacy Reviews

Page 3 of 11

MovieFIX

The Bourne Legacy is a solid, if slightly underwhelming, return for the franchise.

Herald Sun (Australia)

The Bourne Legacy in no way honours the Bourne legacy. It is merely an exercise in brand maintenance until Damon feels like climbing down off his wallet to be Bourne again.

Sydney Morning Herald

The Bourne Legacy is quieter, slower, more sobering. The conspiracy is bigger and darker than we thought.

The Age (Australia)

There's enough there, in all likelihood, to make audiences hope for more, but it's not as finished or complete a work as it should have been.

Jeremy Renner takes over the franchise and lends his character a menacing charm.

The action - foot chases, gun battles, and one lengthy episode on motorbikes in the choked streets of Manila - is really, really good.

FILMINK (Australia)

Fast paced, tightly plotted and strongly performed, The Bourne Legacy is an inventive continuation of the groundbreaking Bourne series.

Radio Times

A nimble and well-crafted chase thriller.

Leo Robson
Financial Times

Where The Bourne Ultimatum was a lesson in how to construct a jargon-heavy, location-hopping, it-goes-all-the-way-up-to-the-top spy thriller, The Bourne Legacy is a lesson in how not to.

Full Review Source: Financial Times | Original Score: 2/5

August 16, 2012

Why oh why would you spoil the brilliance of a perfect film trilogy with a Bourne inferior? The Bourne Legacy is a fourth big screen adventure for the super spy but sadly one without a plot, a point and most incredibly Jason Bourne.

Lori Hoffman
Atlantic City Weekly

Since The Bourne Legacy's non-ending leaves the franchise in need of a real finale, it would be great if Damon signs back up and joins Renner for one last Bourne experience.

Whether you like 'The Bourne Legacy' depends on what you think about 'link' movies.

Mark Leeper's Reviews

It is really just another action chase story with a science-fictional MacGuffin concept that could have even been an afterthought.

All could be forgiven if the action delivered, but it doesn't.

The ending suggests a sequel, and why not? I'd watch Renner again, though I'd still prefer it if Damon and Greengrass returned.

Tony Gilroy handles the action sequences decently enough, aided by John Gilroy's brisk editing and striking camerawork from Robert Elswit.

Cinema Signals

It's game all the way, it has some applause moments for the superb engineering of several action sequences, and it rates high marks for conception and writing. But we're missing something. Could it be Jason Bourne?

Daniel Eagan
Film Journal International

Talky and short on action, the film will leave fans on hold and other filmgoers unimpressed.

Renner's Aaron Cross races to get his fix, in what seems like an overblown metaphor for the ideal viewer's addiction to chasing the Bourne dragon. 'No more', indeed.

Laramie Movie Scope

It doesn't have a satisfactory conclusion, but it does leave the door wide open for more sequels, which, I guess, is the whole point of this empty exercise in commercial film making.
