    I liked the Bourne legacy I guess I am the only person on the planet

    I liked it too. :) I thought Jeremy Renner was awesome and a worthy replacement to Matt Damon.

    I tried to get into it (bought it on Blu and saw it in the theatre) but it just seemed like a pale comparison to the original to me. If Damon hadn't done the first 3 it would have been awesome, but I just kept comparing it to those and found it wanting.

    Like with Die Hard 5, just switch off your brain and don't let yourself think of the previous 3 Bourne films/4 Die Hard films. If you start comparing them, you will be disappointed. Best to treat it as it's own animal, and IMO 'Legacy' was a pretty cool action flick.

    True enough @DaltonCraig007. The DH comparison is a good one. I was constantly comparing Renner to Damon and the whole thing wasn't quite up to it compared to the first 3. I shouldn't have done that.

    I was able to shut off my brain for JW, and enjoyed it a lot. I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much if I had compared it to JP's 1 to 3, because it's not as good, especially compared to the first 2.

    I'll try to watch it again with a fresh pair of eyes sometime.

    But it kind of defeats the object, doesn't it? Of course it's going to compared to its predecessors, its in the same darn series! Film B (or, in this case, film D) would not exist without film A. It was titled The Bourne Legacy, not The Bourne Non Sequitur.

    I just meant, don't compare them while watching the film. :) Best to compare the films after, once you've had fun watching it. Just like in Bond, if I kept comparing DAF or MR to CR or FRWL while in the middle of the viewing, I wouldn't enjoy the film.

    Renner not returning would that mean that Legacy never happened?

    Looking very forward to BOURNE 5. My eyes need to see a genuine badass spy/agent. No gimmicks no bs.

    Can't wait. I'm sure they'll shake up the spy universe again with this one. Damon wouldn't have signed on unless he had something up his sleeve.

    No. There going to make Bourne 5 now with Damon. The movie with Renner is delayd, so it possible there wil use Bourne 6 for a meet up of the two already or another Aaron Cross movie before there meet together in Bourne 7.

    I would like to see a movie of the two of them together, i think given the right script and plot why not?

    Tommy Lee Jones also get part in the movie.

    Bond family member/stunt coordinator-second United directer Simon Crane wil be second united directer. For Bourne it wil possible closer to QOS, MIB3 (Some very Casino Royale releated action), Mrs And Mrs Smith, Tomb Raider or/and Salt. Stunt Coordinator wil be Gary Powell, who be more on front as Stunt Coordinator since Casino Royale but also working already on Bond for long time as stunt guy.

    DOP/Cinematopgrapher: Barry Ackroyd (The Hurt Locker, Captain Philips, Green Zone, Contraband) The cinematopgraphy of Contraband is great.

    Production Designer: Paul Kirby (Art department of Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies,DAD, The Four Feathers. Production designer of Kingsman, Captain Phillips and Lee Tamahori's Devil's Double.)

    Art Directer: Mark Scruton (The Bank Job, Gravity, Fury)

    The editor isn't confirmd yet, but i think it wil be Christopher Rouse. The editor of The Bourne Supremacy/Ultimatum, Captain Philips, Green Zone and some other projects from Greengrass.

    Brilliant choice for a villain! :-bd
  • I still can't believe this is happening but I'm really glad it is. Can't wait for Bourne to make his comeback :-bd

    Damon's comments interest me. I think the Vegas location alone could give it a whole different feeling to the previous movies (which took place almost entirely in grey, usually European cities, in fact one of the reasons I appreciated Legacy was the increase in location variety), which I think is important if they want to make it a long running franchise.

    I thought Legacy was a good film, but the series was never gonna be able to carry on properly without Bourne. And now not only do we have the character back we have Damon back in the role too, I personally couldn't be happier.

    He looks to be in the best shape he's been in since he took on the role. I just know this film is going to be good.

    Agreed. The long break, the failure of Bourne Legacy, and the resurgence of MI and Bond means Damon and Greengrass have something to prove next year, and it looks like they are deadly serious.
