Jeremy Renner's stock-in-trade is a regular-looking joe who radiates a powerful undercurrent of danger. Given the new storyline, Renner is a perfect replacement for Matt Damon.

Jeremy Renner... fills in Damon's shoes with relish, and better yet, with integrity.

It won't provide the cinematic jolt that many are looking for in a "Bourne" film.

The rather serious and businesslike film offers a handful of intense action scenes and some satisfying spy-vs-spy combat.

Legacy intact! The Bourne Legacy ensures we've not seen the end of the franchise just yet.

Renner's Cross isn't as compelling a protagonist as Damon's troubled Bourne, but when it comes to bruising combat he certainly delivers.

Unless America is really that stuck on Matt Damon in the Bourne franchise, I see no reason that Renner's work here shouldn't make him a star.

It couldn't ever hope to match the Paul Greengrass/Matt Damon movies for sheer punch and propulsion, but it's as close to replicating them as you could expect, and marks another excellent entry into the Bourneography.

'The Bourne Legacy' is by no means a bad film. Unfortunately, it just has trouble living up to the real world Jason Bourne 'legacy.'

There's a lot to like about The Bourne Legacy, but it's hard not to feel a little worried that the rich complexity of Ludlum's past work might be lost in the transition-and that's a legacy that really needs to be upheld.

"The Bourne Legacy" may not be the thriller the first three films managed to be. But, it's well written and very entertaining. Renner has become one of my favorite action stars.

Though the weakest of the series, "The Bourne Legacy" is not a throw-away action film. It's one of the best thrillers of the year and a sure bet on the future success of the "Bourne" franchise.

If you can survive the first hour's complexities - you'll need to focus hard on the narrative to keep up - a pay-off, of sorts, awaits.

Renner and Weisz make an entertaining action-movie odd couple, the terse man of action and the chatty scientist who learns fast how to react when the shooting starts.

(Renner) has the required intensity and physicality to make his character-a highly-trained, genetically enhanced undercover agent-completely believable.

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

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

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

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