A bloated waste of time.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 17, 2012
Even without Jason Bourne and the corresponding Matt Damon, it's a well-cast and well-done continuation of the series.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 17, 2012
Lacks the tight plotting that characterised the first three movies.
August 16, 2012
Manages at one and the same time to feel very propulsive without actually going anywhere in particular or having much of a point.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
August 16, 2012
The Bourne Legacy is a solid, if slightly underwhelming, return for the franchise.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
August 16, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 16, 2012
The Bourne Legacy is quieter, slower, more sobering. The conspiracy is bigger and darker than we thought.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 16, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 16, 2012
Fast paced, tightly plotted and strongly performed, The Bourne Legacy is an inventive continuation of the groundbreaking Bourne series.
August 16, 2012
A nimble and well-crafted chase thriller.

August 16, 2012
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 | 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
August 16, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

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

August 15, 2012
It is really just another action chase story with a science-fictional MacGuffin concept that could have even been an afterthought.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
August 15, 2012
All could be forgiven if the action delivered, but it doesn't.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 15, 2012
The ending suggests a sequel, and why not? I'd watch Renner again, though I'd still prefer it if Damon and Greengrass returned.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 15, 2012
Tony Gilroy handles the action sequences decently enough, aided by John Gilroy's brisk editing and striking camerawork from Robert Elswit.
