iTunes Review

The Bourne Legacy breaks with its predecessors in a number of ways. It’s the first film in the Bourne series that isn’t based, however loosely, on a Robert Ludlum novel; nor does Matt Damon star as ex-C.I.A. agent Jason Bourne (in fact, the Bourne character doesn't appear in Legacy). Scriptwriter Tony Gilroy replaces Paul Greengrass, who helmed the second and third installments, as director.
