The Bourne Legacy review

There’s no more Matt Damon, instead The Bourne Legacy calls up Jeremy Renner.
Renner is Aaron Cross - like Bourne before him, he's recruited into a special Government program, becoming a super-spy, and operating beyond the confines of the usual White House constraints.
When his program becomes a threat Cross finds himself on the run from his own bosses as he tries to uncover fact from fiction about his own existence.
Living up to the legend of the awesome Bourne trilogy was always going to be a big ask and The Bourne Legacy, while perfectly passable, is just not in the same league.
Too lean on the action and lacking the kinetic gripping Paul Greengrass directing style and simplicity of the original premise, Legacy's a good enough watch, but not a great one.
