Watching this movie was definitely not a high priority but since there was not much else to see, I thought I should give it a try. Eventually, it was a nice attempt to create a spin-off around the Bourne trilogy but the end result was still rather disappointing. Indeed, they made several mistakes but the most obvious one was that the story was just way too weak. I mean, basically, the whole thing is just about a spy looking for his meds, that's it. Nothing much, ain't it? It is pretty obvious that they wanted to create the same structure (top spy on the run while his agency tries to terminate him) without exactly copying the plot of the previous movies and that's why they added those meds but I thought it was a terrible plot device. Still, it is far from being a bad movie. Indeed, it is fairly entertaining and I really liked the way they tried to tie in both stories. However, during the 2nd half, we never hear from Jason Bourne anymore so that was another wasted opportunity. I also enjoyed the cast. I thought Edward Norton was pretty badass, at least, in the beginning, but then, basically, he spends the whole movie looking serious and giving orders. Can you believe that 10 years ago, after 'American History X' and 'Fight Club', he was hailed the best actor of his generation? There is not much left of these promises, I'm afraid. Rachel Weisz tried very hard to give her character some substance but her part is rather thankless since she's there only to make sure that Aaron Cross doesn't wander all alone during the whole thing. What is left is Jeremy Renner and I must admit he gave a terrific performance. Not only was he charismatic but he managed to replace Matt Damon without being a copycat and he succeeded in creating his own genuine character. Without him, the whole thing would have been pretty terrible. To conclude, even though it is not really succesfull, it remains an interesting attempt to develop this franchise and I still think it is worth a look, especially if you like the previous trilogy.
