I was going to do a post about my Book 2 revisions but after seeing this movie at the weekend, I needed to review it, pronto.
I used to luuuurve going to the cinema. Lurve! But lately, while I've seen some good movies, I just can't seem to catch a WOW-THAT-TOTALLY-BLEW-ME-AWAY film. But I've been a huge fan of the Bourne franchise, so I was always going to see The Bourne Legacy. Deep down I was really hoping it would equal the three previous Matt Damon awesomeness because, seriously, what's not to like about Jeremy Renner?
Unfortunately, after waiting over an hour for the film to get going, I…kinda…zzzzz. I never really understood the premise of the film or grew to care about the characters. Jeremy Renner's character felt flimsy and Rachel Weisz, another favourite of mine, was so meeh, I couldn't be bothered to care about what happened to her.
As much as I adore Jeremy Renner, the fact that I can't even remember his character's name just makes think I wasted my precious money. When you're watching a hawt guy and a clever motor-bike chase through Manila and you keep thinking "I wish I was watching Ice Age 4 again", then you know something's wrong.
At the end of the movie, when DH said "I like the way they left the plot loose to make room for another one", I found myself thinking, "Bugger, I hope not!"
Sorry folks, this film just didn't do it for me. So in place of The Bourne Legacy trailer, I leave you with the last film that I actually enjoyed watching last month!
