The Bourne series has always been great. This one stands out however. Renner makes an excellent substitute as the lead agent. His character has the intensity, skills and determination that you would expect to see in an elite agent. In addition, this movie enjoys stellar performances from Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton. Norton especially encapsulates the ruthlessness of the people behind the program. They are prepared to go far outside what many would consider what is acceptable to get their way. That sets this apart from the rest of the movies in the franchise. An easy 5 stars.
What a disappointment. Apart from the special effects, the movie demonstrates implausible plot elements, heroes who act like idiots, characters with no real substance, and threads that are never addressed in the story. I found it to be really weak and an utter cinematic failure.
