Anyone else see Bourne Legacy?
I thought it was pretty decent, with one fundamental problem: it spends too long justifying its own existence.
The movie notionally starts concurrently with the events of the Bourne Ultimatum, and takes many of its stylistic cues from that movie. It creates a new mythology in which Treadstone is just one of several related super-assassin project. The protagonist, Aaron Cross, is one of a handful (I think 9) operatives of a project called Outcome, and is spurred into action when the director of Outcome decides to shut down the project "with extreme prejudice", including all operatives and scientists in the know.
It's an interesting mythology. But it takes way to long to set up and leaves too little time for action. Discounting a little scene in which Cross sets up a wolf to take the fall for him, it takes one hour for the first punch to fly.
Fortunately, once the action starts, it gets pretty good. There was as scene that started out looking like the foot chase/fight in The Bourne Ultimatum (one of the best in film afaiac), but turns into one of the most riveting motorized chase scenes i have seen in a while.
