The Bourne Legacy
Jeremy Renner, apparently tiring of his second-tier superhero status as Hawkeye in The Avengers, takes a page from the more glamorous Captain America (better living through chemistry). Also a page from his franchise predecessor (ruggedly handsome sandy-haired super-agent seeks refuge from government baddies with a fetching female). But this time, the big car chase is on motorcycles! Totally different! Alas, jacking the sequel means upping the ante means bloating the action means stretching the credibility means dampening the drama. With Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton. 2012.
