The Bourne Legacy takes the action-packed Bourne series to an explosive new level. On the verge of having their conspiracy exposed, members of the government’s intelligence community will stop at nothing to erase all evidence of their top secret programs – even the agents involved. Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner) must use his genetically-engineered skills to survive the ultimate game of cat-and-mouse and finish what Jason Bourne started. Also starring Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz and Academy Award nominee Edward Norton, critics are calling this a "thrilling, edge-of-your-seat heart-pounder" (Meg Porter Berns, WSVN-TV (FOX), Miami).

The Bourne Legacy is an exciting movie that takes place soon after the events of the Bourne Trilogy movies. Jeremy Renner plays agent Aaron Cross, who has been genetically manipulated and enhanced through the use of experimental drugs. The agents in this program, known only by their number, are constantly assessed for response to the chemicals which require daily maintenance doses.
As a result of Jason Bourne's actions, the agency, now under intense scrutiny, has elected to shut the program down. The agents involved in the program, who will die if not properly cycled off the meds, are considered collateral damage. The movie is essentially about Cross dealing with the sudden loss of medication, as well as being a target for reasons he doesn't understand. Rachel Weisz plays a scientist involved in the program who becomes Cross's unlikely ally. Ed Norton plays the CIA boss in charge of shutting it all down and leaving no loose ends.
I didn't think this movie had the intensity of the original Bourne movies but, I still really enjoyed it. It is fast paced, well written and well acted.
He's not Bourne, but he is a great individual character that needs more where this comes from.
