    How long are they going to keep calling them Bourne films when the title character isn't in them?

  • bruce

    looking forward! Renner did great job as Aaron Cross !

  • Rick

    Didn't see the last one with Matt Damon. No plans to see this one. Stupid producers tried really hard to ruin a good thing and they finally succeeded. Renner is an ok actor, but he doesn't get anyone's blood going.

      Gaaaaaaay

    no matt damon???? Not going to watch it!

    Fantastic. More kung fu, less Edward Norton floundering. Jeremy Renner did a great job and I really liked Rachel Weisz too. Gotta get Matt Damon back in the fold though. The Desh/Bourne fight in Bourne Ultimatum remains among the top 5 action scenes I've ever watched. Unreal.

  • matt
