Q: What was the best action scene in this movie?
A: The only action scenes in this movie were of Jeremy Renner jumping from one thing to another.

Q: So if there were no action scenes, was the movie at least a good drama with interesting dialogue or characters?
A: No. Nothing in this movie made any sense because it was mostly nonsense “Secret Agent” technical jargon mixed with Jason Bourne name dropping and scenes of Jeremy Renner jumping.

Q: Does this movie acknowledge the fact that Jason Bourne is no longer part of the series?
A: I’m almost certain that’s all this movie does.

Q: What do you mean?
A: The entire purpose of The Bourne Legacy seems to be to name-drop Jason Bourne every minute and mention that he’s still around somewhere, but we just can’t see him.

Q: Can you give me an example of this?
A: “Jason Bourne is in New York City and he just singlehandedly took down 17 armored cars, 12 police helicopters, and 156 SWAT team members. We just can’t seem to get a visual on that… but trust me, it was awesome. In the meantime, here’s another shot of Jeremy Renner jumping around.”

Q: Does this movie have any arbitrary shots of horses in it?
A: It had an arbitrary shot of a wolf, but not a horse. Although most of this movie was so boring and unwatchable that there may have been a horse in there somewhere.

Q: Can you give me an example of the dialogue?
A: “We have to get an Alpha team out on this problem with the chems because Go-Sat doesn’t even have elementary Bravo access to any of our case files that JASON BOURNE tri-double-bonded-barrel-chested-grenade. Here’s Jeremy Renner jumping by the way.”

Q: What was the worst part of The Bourne Legacy?
A: Every two seconds someone would fire a sniper rifle into the sky and it would make the loudest sound ever recorded in movie history.

Q: What would have been a more appropriate title for this movie?
A: Watch Jeremy Jump.

Q: What was the funniest part of the movie?
A: Someone said the word Youtube. Everyone in the theatre laughed for some reason.

Q: Why do you think they laughed?
A: Because the only word that people understood in the entire first 30 minutes was Youtube.

Q: What did the guy sitting next to you say during that scene where Jeremy Renner was walking on a mountain.
A: The guy next to me loudly said “Where’s he going?”

Q: What did the guy sitting next to you say during that scene where Jeremy Renner jumped?
A: Jeremy Renner jumped in every scene.

Q: Okay, so what did the guy sitting next to you say during one of the scenes where Jeremy Renner Jumped?
A: “Whoa! This guy sure loves jumping!”

Q: What percentage of your personal space was taken up by the knee of the guy sitting next to you?
A: 75-95%.

Q: What did the guy sitting next to you smell like?
A: Cabbage, Butter, and Spaghetti with Dog.

Q: How loud were the gunshots in this movie?
A: Insanely loud.

Q: Did Edward Norton play a guy with dual personalities like he has done in every movie of his, including but not limited to The Incredible Hulk, Fight Club, American History X, Primal Fear, etc.?
A: Edward Norton was in this movie? All I saw was Jeremy Renner jumping around furiously.

Q: Should I see this movie?
A: There’s a joke to be made here about jumping, but I’ll just keep it simple. No.
