The Bourne Legacy(2012)

I realized rather quickly that if you're not Jeremy Renner and you're in The Bourne Legacy you will have absolutely nothing to do the entire running time. It may be a bit harsh on Rachel Weisz, but only because I adore her. You got great guys like Edward Norton reciting lines and lines of dialogue and get nothing for it. I was willing to bet the movie was banking on some kind of huge climatic release at the end, and Norton's performance was a calm and cool under pressure kind of thing. There was a . . . bike chase. I guess that counts. Look, I don't need action films to have plot-plot-plot-blah. But if you decide to focus on it then I have to take points off. Not points off Rachael Weisz though. Never off her.
