The Bourne Legacy

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by darius8, Jul 29, 2012.


  1. I'm already disappointed with this film before ever seeing it.
    A friend of mine, who has read most of Robert Ludlum's "Bourne" books including "Bourne Legacy", said that Jason Bourne was the main character in the book. This means they borrowed the tiltle but was untrue to the book. Is this some form of deception? :bawl:

    It could still be mostly the same plot, just told from a different perspective. We won't know until we know.
     
  3. Jason Bourne's character is not in the movie. I read that this film is a spin-off from the book.
     
  4. The books follow the sequence The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum, The Bourne Legacy. They should have not called it Bourne Legacy because it's like making a movie called "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7)" and Harry Potter isn't even in it.

    It should have been called "Not another Bourne movie" or "Bourne Not".

    It has strayed so far off course with the introduction of this new "Bourne" into the story line and they know it, which is why they keep doing the hard sell in all the ads:

    "There was never only one...."

    Um, yes, there was. Plain stupid.
     
  6. Jason has a cousin.. Bubba Bourne played by Larry the cable guy. hahaha :D

    Well, if you've read the books, you should know that the movies strayed way off the books from the very beginning. That's OK, though. The movies have been good in their own right. That said, I'm not holding my breath on the new one. It could be good, but I don't think it will be. What gets my hopes up somewhat is that they got so many of the original actors back, even if they didn't get Matt Damon. I mean, has David Strathairn ever been in a bad movie? Add to that Edward Norton, Albert Finney, Scott Glen, Joan Allen. If nothing else, the CIA will be well acted.

    I'll pass, sadly. I am a huge fan of the Matt Damon Bourne movies, and was super excited when talk of this new one started surfacing. Then totally disappointed when I heard about this Cross character. What bugs me too is the video clips from the other Bourne movies in this new one.

    Personally, I think they are setting up a future film where Bourne and this Cross guy have a showdown.

    Huh? Why would 2 guys who are trying to get their lives back want to kill each other? In addition, isn't this Cross guy supposed to be some super soldier via lab experiments (as per the plot)? Bourne was just well trained.

    I want to see it...I really like Jeremy Renner...and haven't read any of the books, so it's just a cool looking movie to me.

    I haven't read any of the Bourne books, so I don't care at all if the movies don't follow the same story line. If it's a good action movie with a decent plot, I will enjoy it.
     
  12. gotta go with this.

    For the same reason all the other operatives were trying to kill each other, that is what they were trained to do.

    I'm not revealing any more of my plot in case one of the production companies comes to me with ideas on the film. :)

    So would it be better if the movie had Colt McCoy or maybe Josh Cribbs in it?

    I was disappointed after a few minutes of the first movie. Im a Ludlum guy and it didnt take long to realize that Matt Damon is not Jason Bourne. Sorry, but those films offer nothing similar to what the books did.
     
  20. I'm down with most action movies, but I'll tell you my gripe.

    I don't care how much training you do, you cannot, I repeat CANNOT deny physics. I can suspent my belief in the law of physics for a monster miovie, or a SciFi movie, but not any movie that purports to be a dude or dudette who has some martial arts training or some such nonsense and that physics does have to be obeyed.
