Mini Movie Review: The Bourne Legacy: ★★½

Great action sequences built into an otherwise weak storyline. Clearly the marketability of the Bourne name was used to draw in a bigger audience.  Besides a microscopic tie in to the previous 3 films, I see no reason why The Bourne Legacy should even be associated with the Matt Damon trilogy.  In fact, I think this would would have been a much better film as a stand alone.  Regardless, Jeremy Renner is great, and there are a couple of sequences that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  Despite the negatives of this movie, I still enjoyed it, for the most part.  I would recommend you see this in the theater if you must, but you might get more for your money's worth if you wait to rent this.
