This film is loaded with a cast of all- star actors. There are some familiar faces with Scott Glenn and David Strathairn assuming their CIA roles and Albert Finney appearing as the doctor. Joan Allen makes an appearance, as well, as Pamela Landy. The new faces include two time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross and Academy Award winning actress Rachel Weisz as Dr. Marta Shearing. Edward Norton and Stacy Keach round out the main characters in this story that proves there are still things we don’t know about what started as Treadstone.
Director and writer Tony Gilroy crafts a new character, a product of much research and design that has evolved since Jason Bourne was created. This character is different, though, as he knows exactly who he is and what he’s doing. He also has the uncanny Bourne-like ability to come out on top of each encounter with an adversary.
All of the Bourne movies require a fixed attention span. These are not movies you will fully understand if you are not going to sit and actually watch. You will miss things if you don’t pay attention and “The Bourne Legacy” is the same. Having the experience of “The Bourne Identity”, “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum” will make this movie much more enjoyable and understandable. You may still enjoy it if you haven’t seen the first three, but you will be missing out on part of the story.
Fellow movie goer Bill said he found the movie “extremely entertaining”. He enjoyed the fresh story line with realistic action scenes and convincing characters.
All in all, the adventure kept my attention and, I will admit, had me wanting more when the end credits were rolling. I was aghast that it was over, when it seemed we were just getting started. Will I go see the next one? There’s so much more left to the story, so of course I will!
