Some are still complaining about The Bourne Legacy and saying it is NOT a Bourne film. I say who cares, when a film looks this good why complain? Yes it doesn’t feature Jason Bourne (although he does take up some of the story and appears in photos) but the film is once again heavily based around Treadstone, the company who trained Bourne and new character Aaron Cross.
Personally I think The Bourne Legacy looks amazing, and Jeremy Renner is perfect for the role. Thankfully he would appear to be bringing his own characteristics to the role, and not just copying Matt Damon’s career changing performance. Yes, it is safe to say that I believe The Bourne Legacy will be brilliant, and a great addition to the already classic and superb trilogy of Bourne films.
Directed by Tony Gilroy, who also penned the first three films, The Bourne Legacy is co-written by Tony and Dan Gilroy. Jeremy Renner plays CIA agent Aaron Cross, and appearing alongside him will be Edward Norton, Rachel Weisz, Oscar Isaac, Scott Glenn, Donna Murphy, Joan Allen, Albert Finney and David Strathairn.
The Bourne Legacy arrives in UK cinemas 13th August.
