The studio tried to figure out how to make a Bourne movie without Bourne, but could it feel like anything other than a cynical attempt to squeeze more dollars from a finished franchise?
The Bourne Legacy is more than just a bad film. Its legacy is that it tarnishes what came before, either out of spite or pure incompetence.
What happens as the film goes on in is best left for viewing by Bourne aficionados. The script is thin, but the acting, cinematography and direction make up for this loss. This is worth seeing even by the naysayers.
