The Bourne Legacy IMAX

2012 | 135 min. minutes | Rated PG-13

Stupidity of the term aside, it's easiest to describe The Bourne Legacy as a "sidequel" to the Bourne flicks that starred Matt Damon: Legacy occurs during roughly the same timeframe, but thanks to Bourne's shenanigans, the government's decided to wipe out all of its experimental soldiers, including Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner). Plus, Cross is running out of the meds that keep him all smart and tough—meaning that unless he and Dr. Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz) can get him more pills, he'll go all Flowers for Algernon. Crammed full of technobabble and superfluous plot ("Blackbriar!" "Treadstone!" "BETA TEST GROUP C, ALPHA CODE TANGO!"), Legacy makes as much sense as all the other Bournes, which is to say none. But Renner's a solid action hero—angry and driven—while director Tony Gilroy, who wrote the Damon Bournes before directing the excellent Michael Clayton, continues the series' blurry, spastic action.
