I believe to be the best out if the Jason Bourne movies, Jeremy Renner is an exceptional actor and more believable than Matt Damon to be an agent I love the constant action scenes, just fantastic!

Incredibly disappointing! A big waste of time and money!

Having read the book (with the same title by Eric Van Lustbader/Robert Ludlum) I truly can’t fathom why this movie was produced. Bourne Legacy, the book, has a great story, it transports you into a world of intrigue, action, and delivers a plot that pulls at your heart and mind, The movie was a total disappointment. Not worth your time and money. What a waste!
