Review: The Bournce Legacy
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.
Edward Norton is one of my favorite actors and I thought having him onboard would be perfect to play opposite Bourne. Jeremy Renner played an interesting Bourne and I was looking forward to seeing how he would play it out since he was pretty good in the Avengers as Hawkeye. The movie is filled with action but I was expecting the story to have some sort of ridiculous plot that we would figure out later, to lead to some discovery. But half way through the movie I was getting distracted, it just didn’t keep my attention, and the ending was one long ridiculous action scene which was pretty pointless, and when the movie ended I thought “Really? Thats It? Nothing Else?” I was a bit disappointed and with this Bourne movie, I wanted it to be a lot better. The action was fun but it couldn’t cover for the lack of a coherent story, if I wanted senseless action I would have watched Expendables 2 again.
