The Bourne Legacy: A mini review + Rant

People act completely nuts when it comes to free stuff. Seriously. I don't know if we're technically still in a recession, but Tuesday night I had the opportunity to attend an advance screening of The Bourne Legacy (free event), and people were showing out.

The other half of #TeamDoubleTrouble gifted me the tickets and I was excited to check out the film. It was held at the Icon Theater in the VIP section, and I think that's what started most of the issues. Those unfamiliar with the way the VIP section works messed up the entire process. Seats, though free, were assigned. Tickets were handed out and people should've had the sense to actually sit in their assigned seat. I mean, it's very simple. Look at the number on your ticket. Sit in that seat. Well, that proved challenging for the masses.

20 mins into the movie and folks were still looking around crazy because they weren't in the right seat. We weren't in the right seats because the people next to us (in our actual seats) couldn't move. Know why? Because the people next to them were in their seats... refusing to move... and all this started because someone was in their seats too! It was a mess. I could see the frustration on the faces of the Icon employees (not to mention they were bitching and moaning), but seat issues aside the move was pretty good!

I had never seen any of the Bourne movies, but as a newbie I felt it was easy to follow the story line. It was action packed, good acting, and a solid 3.5 out of 5 stars. I wouldn't have had any issue paying for the film and think it'd make a great date night show. If you need some weekend plans I say go for it!

The ensemble was chosen perfectly, and even though there is no Matt Damon, we still get plenty of great spots from Renner and his performance as Aaron Cross. I look forward to seeing what Gilroy does with this character in the future, but for now, I’m just glad he made it work. Good review.
