The Bourne Legacy

When this movie hit the theaters, I wonder why they bothered making a fourth Bourne movie without Damon.  Well, having seen it, I now wonder why I was stupid enough to watch it.  The Damon Bourne movies were fast paced with a significant amount of intrigue which kept you on the edge of your seat.  They were also well paced with character depth.  This movie?  Well, a few people got punched, but that was about it.  I didn't care about the characters and the plot felt cobbled together.  The first half of the movie was slow background setup.

This movie felt like a cash grab riding on the coattails of the real Bourne movies and I do not recommend it.  The requisite fruit cart seen also came way too late.
