Known Trivia

  • Before this movie was seriously considered, director Paul Greengrass jokingly suggested to make a fourth Bourne movie called “The Bourne Redundancy”.
  • Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, Garrett Hedlund, Michael Fassbender, Alex Pettyfer, Joel Edgerton, Taylor Kitsch, Kellan Lutz, Josh Hartnett, Paul Dano, Luke Evans, Michael Pitt, Oscar Isaac, Benjamin Walker and Erryn Arkin were considered to play the lead role.
  • When asked about his most difficult scene, Jeremy Renner revealed that it was the motorcycle ride with Rachel Weisz behind him in Manila, because he was responsible for the two of them. At the press conference of the film, Weisz was asked about this particular stunt, “How was it to ride on a motorcycle through Manila with Jeremy Renner?” and she said that “It was really terrifying! Jeremy never told me when we were in Manila, but that was the scariest stunt for him because he was responsible for my life. He didn’t tell me that in Manila, thank god, because I would have been like, ‘Oh, my god!’ I just had to surrender and hold on. I didn’t have to act. It just was terrifying”.
  • Shipped to theaters under the code name “Marcher”. This was also the fake title filming took place under.
  • The message scrawled on the mirror in the hotel room, ‘No More’, is an anagram of the fake surname Cross gives to Marta, ‘Monroe’.

Goofs: Factual errors: In the climactic car chase in Manila, LARX #3 is seen driving a Manila police patrol car, a Toyota Camry. The Camry, priced as a near-luxury car in the Philippines, has never been in the fleet of the Manila police.

Plot: An expansion of the universe from Robert Ludlum's novels, centered on a new hero whose stakes have been triggered by the events of the previous three films. Full summary »  »

Story: Aaron Cross, a new hero, experiences life-or-death stakes that have been triggered by previous events.Written by Universal Pictures  


Synopsis: Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner) is a member of Operation Outcome, one of the Department of Defense’s black ops programs, which provides its agents with green pills that enhance physical abilities and blue pills that enhance mental abilities. He is given the moniker of "Number Five" and is deployed to Alaska for a training assignment, where he meets another Outcome operative, Number Three (Oscar Isaac). Their exchange is initially intense, as Number Three questions Cross as to why he is two days ahead of schedule for their rendezvous. Cross explains to him that he had to take a shortcut through a mountain ridge after having lost his kit of program essentials during his travels, including his requisite bloodwork he draws on schedule to send back to Outcome for analysis. This confounds Number Three, as the mountain ridge is generally acknowledged as being extremely difficult for agents to essay even when assisted with a program kit, yet Cross has done so in record time without one, a fact that ostensibly irritates Number Three, since it is implied that Cross has bested Number Three’s unofficial "record". After a further exchange in which Number Three agrees to re-package send some of his bloodwork and label it Cross’s, both men call an uneasy, implied truce to their tension. A fast-moving blizzard is on the horizon, and Number Three says Cross can stay an extra day, since he won’t be able to get ahead of it, despite his early arrival. While lying in bed that evening, Cross happens to notice a number of carvings done in the woodwork above his head, including one of the name "Jason Bourne".

Meanwhile, Bourne is exposing Operation Blackbriar and the Treadstone Project, leading to CIA Deputy Director Pamela Landy (Joan Allen) and Operation Blackbriar supervisor Noah Vosen (David Strathairn) being investigated by the FBI. Upon learning of this, CIA Director Ezra Kramer (Scott Glenn), also under investigation, calls Eric Byer (Edward Norton), a retired USAF Colonel responsible for overseeing the CIA’s clandestine operations, for help.

Byer decides to eliminate all Outcome assets and, upon discovering that both Numbers Three and Five are at the same location, deploys a U-CAV to terminate both agents. Cross’s enhanced hearing picks up a faint echo in the distance, and Cross asks Number Three to confirm what he’s just heard. He cannot, but he and Cross decide to split up and survey the area separately. Cross exits the cabin moments before the U-CAV missile deployed by Byer’s people finds its target location and explodes, instantly killing Number Three. Cross uses a sniper rifle to destroy the U-CAV and, realizing that his superiors have ordered his assassination, goes about removing a tracking device that has been sewn into his abdomen, which he then forces a wolf that attacks him to swallow. Based on the active signal Cross’s tracking device still emits, Byer realizes that Cross is still alive and orders a second U-CAV to be deployed to eliminate Cross once and for all. However, the missile keys on the tracking signal inside the wolf and destroys its target, allowing Byer to mistakenly assume that Cross has finally been terminated. He then sets his sights on terminating the remaining Outcome agents across the globe.Byer issues a mandate to have agent handlers replace the other Outcome assets’ green and blue pills with triangular yellow ones that will kill them in a matter of hours, and then goes about capturing one of Outcome’s foremost scientists, Dr. Donald Foite (Zeljko Ivanek), chemically brainwashing him to shoot and kill his other colleagues, one-by-one in the Outcome research lab. The only survivor of the massacre is Dr. Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz), who escapes after Foite commits suicide in order to avoid being questioned by security. Shearing is later attacked in her house by CIA agents ordered to kill her, but is rescued by Cross, who convinces her to help him after explaining who he is. Shearing reveals that Cross was genetically modified to retain the benefits of the green pills without need of continuous consumption, a process they call "viraling off". Because he hasn’t taken a blue pill in several days, Cross realizes that he will soon lose his mental enhancement. He then coerces Shearing to travel to Manila with him, as the pills are manufactured there, in the hopes of being able to viral off the blue pills in the same manner he did the green.

On the way to Manila, Cross reveals to Shearing that he is actually Kenneth J. Kitsom, a U.S. Army soldier who was "killed" by a roadside bomb in the Iraq War and then offered an opportunity to serve his country via the Outcome program. Meanwhile, Byer continues to hunt down Shearing and discovers that she has been aided by Cross. From security intelligence gathered at major transportation hubs across the country, Byer deduces that Cross and Shearing have departed the US and are travelling to Manila, where the pills are manufactured, ostensibly to help Cross attempt to viral off the blue pills. Byers decides to activate Larx-03 (Louis Ozawa Changchien), the ultimate Outcome super soldier, who has had the viralling off process done for both the blue and green pills and has been programmed to become a completely lethal and emotionless killer. Larx-03 is deployed to Manila to eliminate Cross & Shearing while Cross is still presumably weak from the viraling off process. Byer also learns that Landy is expected to face charges for assisting Bourne, while Vosen is expected to be declared innocent and returned to duty.

In Manila, Cross and Shearing arrive at the factory where the pills are produced and Shearing administers to Cross the blue-pill viralling off procedure. Byer contacts the factory’s supervisor and orders a lockdown, but Cross and Shearing are able to escape before Larx arrives and take shelter in a local apartment, where Shearing helps Cross through his recovery from the process, during which he hallucinates on his recruitment to Outcome, ironically achieved under Byer’s direction. While partly delirious, he tells Shearing that he has money in his jacket and that if anything happens she should take it and get out of there. Cross also says that Shearing should go home, that she’s done enough for him.

The following day, Larx-03 informs the local police of Cross’ location while Shearing is away buying medicine. She is able to warn Cross, who has now fully recovered from the process, and he escapes from the police and rescues Shearing before they steal a motorcycle and escape, pursued by Larx. After a chase through the streets and marketplaces of Manila during which Cross is shot, Shearing kicks Larx-03 off from his motorcycle and into a pillar, killing him upon impact, while Cross’ damaged motorcycle crashes alongside them as they come to rest. Cross and Shearing are then rescued by a boatman and bribe him with a stolen golden watch into taking them to a ferry, which they board, departing to places unknown.

    Questionable follow up to the Bourne trilogy that has the right piecesin place but lacks the conviction to justify its existence. Takingplace almost at the same time of the climax of the third Bourne film(Ultimatum), this film deals with the fall out of the exposure of"Operation Blackbriar" and how an another agency with in the governmentis trying to cover up their program in order not to be caught up withthe coming scandal create by Jason Bourne. "Outcome", the program inquestion is an offshoot of both "Treadstone" and "Blackbriar" but witha huge difference, they are tabbing into science to create super agentsthat are faster and stronger than any other agent before them.

    In order for me to tell you what is good about this movie, I have toexplain what is wrong with it and that is the fact that you get thefeeling fifteen minutes into the film that there is no reason for it toexist. The last film (Bourne Ultimatum) pretty much closed the book onthe series, with little to no wiggle room for an encore. This moviefeels like a studio trying to milk dried what was good from theoriginal trilogy in order to make more sequels. The bad part is thatthey did it in the most unbelievable way, so much so that you reallyneed to forget what you saw in the last three films in order to believewhat was going on in this movie. Tony Gilroy (Who wrote the first threemovies) directs and writes this one but falls flat on his face withhalfhearted explanations that try to justify this movie's existence.Not to mention the fact that the villain of the movie is a lightweightcompared to what came before him plus the glaring fact that EdwardNorton's performance as the heavy is pretty much phoned in. He does nothave the confidant arrogant swagger that Chris Cooper's character hadin the first film nor the desperate menace of that Brain Cox'scharacter brought to the second. Norton's character is more in linewith the villain of the third, who was played by David Strathaim (whohas a cameo in this film). However, Strathaim's character had a senseof justifiable menace that drove him, while Norton's character justseems like a man trying to justify his actions for the greater good,making him more of a government shill than a villain. The sciencefiction angle that comes up is insulting to what the last three filmswere, not to mention the fact that the direction here lacks the kineticenergy that Paul Greengrass brought to the last two movies of theseries. Say what you may about the shaky camera work but he knew how tostage a thrilling action piece of pop art. Gilroy's motorcycle chasetowards the climax is decent but lacks kinetic spark. He is howeververy good in staging small intimate moments within this movie but thatis more a compliment to the A + cast (Mainly his two lead actors) thanthe terrible script that they are forced to working with.

    Jeremy Renner is a talented actor with serious range and complexity.However, the character he plays is not much of a character and thescript that he has to work with is riddled with cliché after cliché. Hecan do anything a secret agent can do but better but the character isnot very compelling or interesting to say the least. Jason Bourne was acompelling character that needed to find himself and through thatjourney in the original trilogy, we saw complexities that werecompelling and thoughtful. He was a conflicted man whose drive wasdictated by an inner sense of redemption. The character of Aaron Crossis a cartoon character compared to Jason and that is the main problemof the script for this movie. It is though Renner's efforts as an actorthat we care about the character of Aaron Cross and that is one of thefew bright spots this film has. Renner injects likability andvulnerability to this character and because of it, we want him tosucceed in beating the bad guy and save the girl but Renner is workingwith a script that goes against itself and we are left with a half faststory that deals with supermen than a human story about survival. It isthrough Renner's efforts as an actor that we see humanity and conflictin this character while the script itself does not give that sort ofdetail and Renner is working overtime to accomplish that. Renner wouldhave done wonders with a compelling character like Jason Bourne,unfortunately that is not found with the character of Aaron Cross.

    Rachel Weisz is one of the most versatile, gifted and complex actorsworking today. An actor's actor in every sense of word but like Renner,she does not have much of a character thanks to the cliché script theyboth have to work with. Her character is on the run with Cross throughout the film and acts as his doctor and object of protection. It isthrough Weisz's amazing strength and range as an actor that we are ableto witness levels of complexity and humanity in the character of DrMarta Shearing that we really do not get from the script. Because ofthat, we are not only able to care and identify with her but Weiszactually makes her character more complex and interesting than AaronCross himself. You can tell that Weisz was working overtime inachieving that and her efforts pay off ten fold, which is a blessingconsidering that most of the characters outside of her and Renner comeacross as cardboard cutouts.

    It is a shame because Renner and Weisz try their best and for the mostpart succeed despite all odds but they like the fans deserved better.

    This is truly a case of great actors who are left out there in the coldby a director, who essentially does not even try to respect them andthe audience's intelligence by giving them something original orinteresting. Tony Gilroy had written not only the first three Bournefilms but the great Michael Clayton as well but here, it is obviousthat he is on a destructive ego trip. Gilroy is more interested inmaking people see on how smart he is as a scriptwriter and filmmakerthan actually try to entertain and stay true to what made the otherBourne films special. With that destructive mind set, Gilroy forgetsthat you need faith in your actors and the material they are workingwith in order to drive the movie forward. Gilroy also commits thebiggest sin of all, which is to never underestimate the intelligence ofyour audience.

    The script by Gilroy and his brother Dan tries to be cutting edge inscientific jargon and smart dialog but ends up with so manyinconsistencies and flimsy characterization that you have to doubleback twice to see if Gilroy actually had a hand in the original "BourneTrilogy". The characters in this film are only there to get from A to Band none of them with the exception of Rachel Weisz and Jeremy Renner(Who you can clearly see are both working beyond the call of duty tomake something out of their paper-thin roles) has any real purpose atall. Poor Edward Norton is only there to bark orders and you canclearly see how frustrated he is with his role in certain scenes. Thedirection is not even very good, with pacing problems and a runningtime that excessively too long for its own good. The action scenes (Thefew of them in the film) do not jar well and are boring to say theleast.

    My advice to Universal, if there has to be a sequel, bring back RachelWeisz and Jeremy Renner (Who both deserve medals for their efforts inmaking this lazy, self indulgent script work) and get rid of TonyGilroy, who clearly does not respect anybody other than himself. Youmight have a better movie if you do.

    Pointless entry into the Bourne series finds Jeremy Renner and RachelWeisz taking over where Matt Damon left off in a sequel that lacks notonly a real purpose to exist but lacks a script that can justify themovie as a continuation of the series. Tony Gilroy (who had a hand inscreen writing the original three films) writes and directs this entrybut forgets the showmanship and grace that Paul Greengrass and DougLiman brought to the series, not to mention the solid storytelling thatcame with their efforts. Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz tried theirbest with the weak material Gilroy provides for them and they almostsucceed, giving the audience something to care for but they arefighting an uphill battle against cliché one dimensional characters,dismal screen writing, a running time that needed to be edited down andamateurish direction that does no one any favors. The rest of the castbarely registers at all and the action is not even on the same level ofthe other films in the series.

    If any blame should go around, it should go squarely to Tony Gilroy andhis brothers, who seem like they had no idea on what the hell they weredoing and in the process, wasted the time of two great actors (Rennerand Weisz) who are working beyond what is necessary to give the fansthe respect they deserve for staying with the series. This was a hardthing to do considering that they are working with nothing in terms ofsupport.

    Jason Bourne is one of the more intriguing film characters of the pastdecade. He methodically and purposefully found out who he was, who wasresponsible for his condition, and attempted to bring everything backtogether again. Even better, he was not a superhero; Jason was just aguy who went through a lot of training. He is elite, but deep down heis still one of us. Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), on the other hand, hasbeen tweaked a little bit. He pops pills to up his physical and mentalskills. Yes, he is still human too, but perhaps a bit geneticallymodified. This splash of sci/fi does not help an audience tuned in tothe adventures of Jason Bourne connect with the new guy.

    When I first heard there was another Bourne installment, this timewithout Matt Damon, I figured someone either wrote a good script tocarry on a new story line, or the studio wanted to churn out aguaranteed cash cow under the title of a proved and successful actionseries. Writer/director Tony Gilroy wrote the scripts for the firstthree Bourne films, but this is his first time behind the camera in theseries. He successfully directed Michael Clayton and the under-appreciated Duplicity, but now the magic is gone. The Bourne Legacy isstale.

    Enduring a painfully slow beginning, The Bourne Legacy reveals it isset at the same point in time as The Bourne Ultimatum. In fact, if youhave forgotten the plot points and supporting characters of theprevious film, take the time to either watch it again or read about itonline before heading into the new feature. Jason Bourne's escapadeshave thrown multiple CIA operations out in the open and the shadowypowers are frantically trying to sweep them under the rug before eitherCongress or the press start asking questions. Eric Byer (Edward Norton)orders the termination of Project Outcome, the new series of superagent represented by Aaron Cross. Instead of telling the agents to packup and go home, the CIA chooses to assassinate them instead. Oh, andthey try to wipe out all of the scientists who made them so super inthe first place.

    Dr. Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz) is one of those scientists seekingways to alter chromosomes to make a more perfect human. After survivingannihilation himself, Aaron conveniently scoops the good Dr. out ofharms way which sets up an 'us against them' theme quite similar to theone you remember from The Bourne Identity. Unfortunately, The BourneLegacy noticeably lacks the quality script and thrilling actionsequences of that first film. The chase scenes in the new film areedited so atrociously, especially during motorcycle elements, that theyare almost impossible to logically follow. You know they are weaving inand out of traffic, there are near misses, and flying bullets; butthere are only quick glimpses of that on the screen in the midst of theunsteady camera work and split-second jump cuts.

    The Bourne Identity also had a mystery to unravel and wandered aroundthe world trying to find out who was behind the curtain. There is nocurtain now, Edward Norton is pulling the strings in plain sight usingall of the means in the intelligence community he can lay his hands on.There are armed Predator drones, devious mop-up CIA killing squads, andeven a possible super- duper agent; imagine the SchwarzeneggerTerminator battling the new T-1000.

    Renner and Weisz do their best to remake a film which was alreadypretty great. Yes, they have new names and faces, but they are runningfrom the same agency, dodging the same bullets, but this time they havea higher chromosomal level on their side. The Bourne Legacy will beknown as that film which derailed the very respectable Bournefranchise. Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy andThe Bourne Ultimatum, was correct when he said any further film wouldfeel like The Bourne Redundancy.

    I could candy coat this and tell you I loved this film, but I won'tbecause I didn't. I thought it was rather poorly written. However thesaving grace was the actors themselves that pulled this out of thecrapper in my opinion. Nothing new was added here except another layerto the Treadstone, Black Briar, and other Government absurdities fromthe other three movies. This sequel deals with genetics and DNAmanipulation and since this is mentioned in the trailer, there is nospoiler alert needed. These genetic mutations were supposed toeliminate the inconsistencies that existed with Jason Borne (also inthe trailer) and the operatives in his program. The way they dealt withhow they supposedly "fixed" the inconsistencies is really what was madethis an unbelievable script. However, the action and the acting of thetwo lead characters Rachel Weisz and Jeremy Renner make this movietolerable. There was no reason to cast people like Stacey Keach orEdward Norton to this cast as they added no value other than their nameto this film. Really, any no name actor could have provided the samequality to this film without having to pay for these actors. The plotwasn't too hard to follow, but be prepared for a few flashbacks to theother three movies, which to me, upsets the flow to the movie. The onlyreason I think they put them in in the first place was for people whomay not have seen the other three Borne movies. Other than that, Idon't think they're needed.

    I wouldn't waste admission price or popcorn on this movie. I only sawit because it was only $5 at the drive in and you got to see anothermovie after it went off so it didn't cost me that much. Don't worry, itwill keep until it comes out on Netflix or Redbox, and then you canwatch it without worrying that you are throwing away your money.

    So I've taken enough theater classes to know that a movie should havea, Plot, Climax, and a ENDING.

    This movie has NONE of those. I'm a huge Bourne fan and was anxious tosee the Jeremy Renner try to take on the new role of the hero in thismovie. The acting in this movie was good, but the writers stunk! Therewas NO PLOT, no CLIMAX, and NO ENDING. It was a huge disappointment tome and I would not recommend wasting your time or money on it. Althoughif you like movies that are two hours long with NOTHING going on inthem, then this might be the one for you. Another thing that upset mewas that Aron Cross seemed to have a small goal or no goal at all inthe ENTIRE movie! I'm not sure who directed this movie but they did anEXTREMELY poor job.

    Great cast. Great acting. However, The entire film feels like thebeginning to a movie. You keep telling yourself, 'wow, the intro waslong now the movies really starting..oh nevermind'. ::Spoilers:: Theentire goal of the protagonist is to acquire more of his regimentedmedicine. The goal of his enemies is to kill him. There is no trying toget back at the CIA, no typical Bourne stuff. The Bourne series wasunnecessarily reused and they really should have just started offfresher. Scenes were drawn out, there were only about 2 clever playsmade, and the main enemy never meets the prot. It's all very separatedand remote. No connections are formed and we are not given the hopethat he seeks to solve the issues at hand. They also completely writeoff Bourne.. wouldn't he know Pamela gets framed and that the overheadis still controlling black ops groups? A lot of things were not wellthought out for this movie and it was entertaining but disappointing.

    I left from my office and decided to watch first show at night with myfriends. When I entered Movie hall, I had high expectation from movieand from Tony Gilroy as Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz are newadditions to series but as movie went on I started searching for that"Bourne" factor and never found it.


    Good acting by both lead.

    Good cinematography


    Fails to keep expectations

    Character of Aron Cross is not portrayed well.

    Background music is dull (earlier movies had good music)

    While Jason Bourne tries to take down CIA, Aron Cross is trying to runaway from it (Why?)

    You will never feel like watching a Bourne series movie (except whenthey mention news about Jason Bourne and Pam Landy in middle)

    In a way I think this film disgraces the Bourne series, and here's why:it simply did not have the feel of a Bourne movie. Between awkwardlychosen locations, some sci-fi drug twist, and and incrediblyover-simplified and at times dull plot line, this is hardly an actionmovie, let alone a Bourne movie. Also, and this part really botheredme, I feel like Tony and Dan Gilroy did things with some of the Bournecharacters that were not true to Robert Ludlum's vision, even going sofar as to change the initiation program and the amount of informationleaked at the end of Ultimatum.

    Secondly, the direction was very close up the entire time, and duringmany of the chase scenes I found myself unable to watch. The entiretime it is very shaky, and because of the closeness, it's difficult toget the whole picture of what's going on.

    Lastly, some of the acting wasn't very good. I've never liked JeremyRenner, and this movie didn't change my opinion on him. It's not thathe's a bad actor, it's just that I don't like him as an actor. EdwardNorton, though, was incredibly stiff and robotic the whole time, aswere some of the other government workers. The best performance wasprobably from Rachel Weisz, who did well as a woman trying to deal withshock and guilt.

    If you happen to like almost all action movie, go ahead and watch this,but if you're a Bourne fan, I wouldn't bother wasting your andtarnishing some aspects of the past movies.

    Ouch. I wish Greengrass directed this film, because to me it felt likea mess. Had a good idea with a solid backing, but it failed to takeadvantage of it. I like that they intertwined the story within theUltimatum storyline like you see in the preview as well as playinghomage to the original series, but the execution sucked not to mentionthat the Bourne events had no influence on Cross' character – somethingthat "Legacy" would suggest. The storytelling felt disjointed, and theaction sequences had way too much camera shake to enjoy them (the firsttrilogy wasn't so bad). Other than Manila, and the solitude of Alaska,location is one trademark of the legacy that just wasn't there. In thefirst three films, the assassins didn't need to speak to havepersonality and character – this film's assassin was just a ghost inyour memory.

    Even though not directly stated, I think most people would understandby watching this film what MAY have actually happened to Jason Bourne.The only way this film will have any more meaning is if they continuethe new trilogy.
