I went to see "The Bourne Legacy."

I went to see "The Bourne Legacy" today, and while it's not a bad film, it's effectively a remake of The Bourne Identity with Jeremy Renner as a replacement for Jason Bourne from the previous 3 films.

Put briefly, the CIA are trying to clean house after all that happened in the previous 3 films. This includes killing off a group of the genetically modified "uber soldiers" (including Renner) that they created to infiltrate terrorist cells (and foreign governments) around the world. This they manage, with the exception of Renner, who promptly starts kicking butt and taking names to save himself, and find out why it's happening.

It's not a bad film, if you like this sort of thing, but it does seem to be strikingly similar to the original film in how it feels, if I'm honest with people.
