I am a fan of the original Bourne Trilogy, I never saw Legacy, so when I heard that a new Bourne movie was coming out I was interested. Then I saw the trailer…oy vey!
The Bourne movie were homage to the classic spy thrillers from the 60’s, it had action and fighting, but this new trailer went all Mission Impossible and Fast and Furious. I think they did this because the franchise with Matt Damon
has been away for a while and in its place we’ve gotten several Fast movies and those trailers have cars blowing up. You have the line “we’re at at war! we need the perfect weapon!” Replace the Bourne character with Jean-Claude Van Damn its just another action 90’s B-movie.
Bourne’s story ended with the third film, he found the people who made him what he was and got his revenge. Its going to be like commando or double team where the leader of a government group go find Bourne and tell him, “We need you back Bourne, one-last-time.” At first he’ll say “no, I’m done.” Then the bad guys will effect his new life in someway and he has to fight.
If I rate the film on this trailer, I won’t be seeing it in theaters. Maybe the longer trailers will change my mind. Until then I’ll go back and watch the trilogy.
