The Bourne Legacy (2012)

Director: Tony Gilroy. Cast: Jeremy Renner, Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Scott Glenn, Albert Finney, David Strathairn, Joan Allen. 135 min. Rated PG-13. Action/Thriller.

With all its achievements, never been a big Bourne series fan. The usual formula for each episode is, the hero can't remember who he is, or we can't remember who he is, or he can't remember who we are - until finally, through a series of fast-edited action/chase sequences, somebody remembers who somebody is. This time, the hero isn't even Jason Bourne, but because of the previously set franchise rules, I wasn't sure about that till the very end. If you can ignore that confusion, Bourne writer and Michael Clayton director Tony Gilroy has crafted an entertaining action thriller.
