I purchased this movie from Amazon for $7.00 and a bluray/ digital copy/ ultraviolet copy was included. For that price, I highly recommend this package.
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.

Great movie! ...especially loved the "outcome" which is treadstone without the inconsistency; larx with a soul (larx3 was a single-minded terminator but NOT indestructable :-). Faithful to the storyline of the series; you'll only be disappointed if you're hung up on Matt Damon. Jeremy Renner is not Matt Damon and Aaron Cross is not Jason Bourne, but this latest installation is an upgrade that retains all the original features while providing fresh enhancements (including Rachel Weisz)... go with the flow, its Bourne 2.0! Very well thought out and scripted; no mindless action here, its edge-of-the-seat all the way through. Final scene is exhilarating as Mobi's tune kicks in.

The first spin off to the Bourne franchise is lacking nothing in this play by the rules or be eliminated movie. Jeremy Renner is tough and complex as the confused military experiment and Rachel Weiss is beautiful and vulnerable as the brave, but clueless (or is she) Genetic doctor. There is a lot of action and shooting throughout the movie while the two are forced to find out why they are being hunted. They must stay alive and try to find the drugs needed to keep him alive as well. Government conspiracy at its finest and this movie does not disappoint.
He's not Bourne, but he is a great individual character that needs more where this comes from.

I love this film. Against the grain a bit, I enjoyed it more than some of the "Bourne" films with Matt Damon. Interesting information about some of the other secret projects and exciting action. Fun.

I enjoyed this movie and was surprised at Jeremy Renner's success in the role. Previously, in my mind, he was meant for comedic/stoner roles, but he was surprisingly sexy in this movie and changed my view about him as an actor and action star. HOWEVER, be warned that the ULTRA VIOLET DIGITAL COPY has EXPIRED! It can still be downloaded in iTunes though (now downloading with a 5 hour waiting time).

Jeremy Renner is a great action star and I love watching Rachel Weisz anytime she is in a show. The action is nonstop and the amount of people involved in the coverup is astounding.

A great, smooth follow-on to the previous Bourne sagas. It cuts in footage from the previous movies to tie them in with this one and explain why and how the black operations of our government devastate and attempt to destroy the morals of humanity of the black ops assets that they are creating and the stunning, casual, chilling manner in which people become totally expendable in a split second. The movie follows on the path of destruction that these agencies create once they have made the decision to "roll-up" a program and the utter lack of humanity. Given the recent disclosures of the behavior of the NSA and other secretive arms of the government, this and the rest of the Bourne series suddenly become not just fiction, but plausible explanations. Buy this DVD!! You won't be disappointed

I love the "Bourne" movies period.......and I know that Matt Damon is "The Man" and rightly so......I think they did a fantastic job with Legacy.....Renner is a WONDERFUL actor....I enjoyed the whole movie....from when he comes out of the water to sitting on the boat in the end. The story going on at the same time with Simon Ross getting shot....and then putting emphasis on the drugs used to help turn these guys into super men.....it all worked for me......Renner could come back again and I'll go see. :-)

Even though I saw this when it premiered I wanted to give it a second go. Well...I'm still scratching my head over this "latest" installment.
Somewhere this thing veered off the tracks and over a cliff. Well my friends it looks like we might be rewarded next year with Damon and
Greengrass at the helm.
