The Bourne Legacy Movie Synopsis

Following Jason Bourne's burning of the Blackbriar program in The Bourne Ultimatum, other CIA intelligence programs that have been operating in the shadows now fear exposure. Agent Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), who works within Operation Outcome, an offshoot of the original Treadstone program, finds his life in danger.

When Colonel Eric Byer (Edward Norton)—operator of Outcome and mastermind behind all of the assassin programs, including Treadstone—discovers that Bourne has exposed Blackbriar, he decides to shut down his own program, in the process killing all of the employees involved who know too much. Cross escapes an attempt on his life, prompting the CIA has to go to great lengths in their efforts to assassinate him.

With Byer and the CIA hot on his heels, Cross has to use every skill in his arsenal to avoid capture and stay alive.

  This should not have Bourne in the title. This was a horrible sequel to the last Bourne movie. It is a good action flic but should not be considered part of the Bourne series

  Matt Damon needs to be the star. If your gonna use Jeremy Renner separate it from the Bourne franchise. Your killing the trilogy.

  I like this actor. He is terrific. I enjoyed from beginning to end. Actor has great potential. He has presence and style of his own. Please make more movies with him.
