The Bourne Legacy 2012

An expansion of the universe from Robert Ludlum's novels, centered on a new hero whose stakes have been triggered by the events of the previous three films.


The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. For The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.

  • Not bad

  • Jeremy Renner has this amazing kind of very intense energy that also seems sort of effortless. He's very watchable! He also makes a great team with Rachel Weisz - I thought this was a fantastic 4th instalment

  • Pretty good, though not really needed as a Bourne add-on. Renner does a good job.

  • oh yeah, as action movies go this is way up there ! I can watch this one over and over, just great ! 4 stars

  • Hmm, i loved Renner in this, but it sorta needed to be a stand alone film, not a follow-on from Ultimatum... a little disappointed the score wasn't as awesome as the other films.... only in the credits? ah well. good action. 3 stars.
