Well that trailer was boring. Lots of military guy talking heads (how is that good trailer material?).
This part busted me up, though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdtUdEoE-Q4&t=2m6s Nice grind, dude.

The only good thing I can say is that the movie continues to have a cool supporting cast.

Well, it doesn't look to be styled much like the other films. That said, it doesn't look to be styled in any particularly interesting way, either.

The plain old truth is that Tony Gilroy isn't a very good director.

I've only seen MICHAEL CLAYTON, which I don't like much.

I have a friend whose opinion I highly value, and he has pressed me to give DUPLICITY a look, despite my skepticism that it's worth anything.

I, surprisingly, didn't mind MICHAEL CLAYTON.

I'm on the fence with this film, though, as far as going to see it in the theater goes. PROMETHEUS is on the top of my list this summer.

I just don't buy Bourne without Greengrass/Damon but I'll give it a go.

Renner has come a long way since SWAT.

The first one is still my favorite. I'm not really big on Greengrass, aside from UNITED 93... which I don't think I wanna see again, but not in a bad way.

Prefer the look of this TV spot. Looks less like I've been binging on absinth.

Well, Rachel Weisz is a step up from Julia "Smushed Face" Stiles.

When I watched DUPLICITY, I was under the mistaken impression it was a very smart movie. But it ain't. 21st century version of TEQUILA SUNRISE in terms of comprehensibility, only worse.

I think it's a pretty good trailer. The surprise is that it seems much campier and more OTT than the other films in the series. I mean, there are quips in this trailer! The first three Bournes are almost entirely humour-free (not that they need humour - they're fine as they are), and especially the two Greengrass outings. Who knows? A more fantastical and lighthearted Bourne flick may work (wasn't the chromosome-tinkering thing done already in HANNA, though?) - then again, it may not. We shall see.

I do miss John Powell's music, though. It seems as vital a part of the Bournes as Barry's scores are for Bond.

I find that this movie has been released and I really just don't care. I'm so tired of this series' shtick.

Haven't read all the posts in this thread, and can't remember if I already posted....but I'm always interested in a good spy/action flick. The trailer for Legacy has piqued my interest and I can readily say myself and clique will be there on opening weekend. I really enjoyed the other Bourne Films, there were moments I honestly thought, "why didn't Bond do this first?"

I also don't give a rat's ass about having allegiances to franchises and simply panning Bourne for the sake of it being panned. Craig's wife is the lead girl in Legacy....

The first Bourne was a very good movie. The sequels were an exercise in diminished returns, with the third being plain bad. Based on the trailer, they are adding even more silliness (genetically altered operatives?). I can't say I feel much excitement for what is essentially a pure money grab.

Bourne reboot undone by its own legacy

Already obsolete, last decade’s financially successful Bourne trilogy–The Bourne Identity (2002), The Bourne Supremacy, (2004), The Bourne Ultimatum, (2007)–needed re-booting to suit the new administration’s political pragmatism (the persistence of foreign policies and espionage strategies once deemed unpopular). But the series’ awful rote cynicism (characterizing ruthless, degenerate American identity) was powered by Bush-hatred more than the Robert Ludlum source novels. The films were part of the post-2000 election political contempt and national self-loathing that now proves too strong to die. It infects self-congratulatory Hollywood to this day–and so deeply that it even ruins Tony Gilroy’s amped-up attempt to turn the Bourne series’ anomie into a love story.

This time Matt Damon’s paradigmatic Bourne is replaced by another rogue agent Aaron Cross/ Kenneth Kitsom (Jeremy Renner) put on the kill list by noxious CIA chief Byer (Edward Norton), along with several other players–all Bourniacs who embarrass the Agency’s mission.

Sinister Byer explains “We’re Sin-Eaters. We are morally indefensible and absolutely necessary.” His bromide’s directed at personnel who missed A Few Good Men and can’t handle the truth such as government scientist Marta Shearling (Rachel Weisz) who previously drugged agents as part of a diabolical plan to dope-up super spies .When Cross/Kitsom contacts Marta about his addiction, she’s survived an in-house massacre (having also been put on the kill list) and the two renegades–rebelling against the system–fall in love. It’s mutual anti-Americanism.

This kind of neo-noir, replete with political skepticism and action-movie blatancy, isn’t simply sentimental. It mixes romance, violence and cynicism. Its hypocritical message: “Don’t trust the government” even if you’re both killers in love. He’s a vet of Operation Iraqi Freedom (still wearing his damaged youth face from The Hurt Locker plus the pugilist fatigue of Daniel Craig‘s Bond); she’s interested in “Behavioral designs, programmable behavior,” though she never resolves her part in the death of a hunky agent. Gilroy is interested in genre mechanisms (including a Sunset Boulevard floating narrator’s body reference) not human interrelations. He shows career-best kinetic skill (more than past Bourne directors); still, the franchise feels empty.

During the big laboratory massacre scene, we don’t know the characters being slain, it’s just a bloodbath. The climactic motorcycle chase features James Newton Howard’s Morriconesque music score but the action is just a meaningless workout with more anonymous killings. The Bourne films pretend political sensitivity but Gilroy doesn’t seem to care about the humanity of the characters he kills off. Strange that Hollywood is attracted to Borne ciphers who kill without feeling; the condemnation of political butchers bounces back on Hollywood.

Not sure I'm going to see it in the cinema... Matt Damon is Jason Bourne, the new guy is just like a fill in guest star who cashes his check. I mean the guy is effin Hawkeye, Ethan Hunt, and now Bourne. Eff off moron! You look like a dick.
