This seems a bit over zealous, as did your August cover story. The two combined leave a bad, tabloid taste in the mouth. I have been a subscriber for many years, but I think I may have had enough.

RATING: 2.5/5

When director Paul Greengrass and lead actor Matt Damon decided to quit the BOURNE franchise after their back-to-back successful collaboration in 2004's THE BOURNE SUPREMACY and 2007's THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM, Universal is struggling to continue the lucrative franchise with a fourth installment. And instead of replacing new actor to play Jason Bourne, screenwriter or more appropriately, "the narrative architect" of the BOURNE trilogy, Tony Gilroy, comes up with a different idea by introducing new character and creates a spin-off that would somehow ties back to Jason Bourne. I have to admit it's a risky approach to proceed with the fourth installment without Matt Damon as Jason Bourne (unless if you count his "appearance" in the news footage, photographs, and his name being mentioned). But try hard as Tony Gilroy might, THE BOURNE LEGACY is unfortunately a lackluster espionage thriller that doesn't comes close to the sheer urgency of the BOURNE trilogy did successfully before...
