Review: The Bourne Legacy

You know we love Bourne, right?  The original Bourne thriller even made our list of Top CIA Movies of all time!  We even loved the Bourne Supremacy, which had all kinds of bad pre-release buzz due to crazy rumors about script issues and on-set fights with director Paul Greengrass.

But the new Bourne?

Meh.

Sorry.

They tried really hard to make this film, quite literally, a legacy, mentioning the past adventures here and there and even showing Matt Damon’s photo a couple of times. But in the end, they couldn’t pull the magic bunny out of the hat again. There’s nothing left in the tank, I’m afraid.

Here’s the synopsis: When a plan is put into motion by a top-secret government program to wipe out all the genetically modified killers it created, one such operative must flee in order to save his life.
