My husband and I just watched Bourne Legacy, I found it a big disappointment compared to the other three Bourne movies. If you haven’t seen them, they’re the story of a broken man who was outcast and alone and thinks no one can love him until he finds a woman that can. In the second movie she dies and his whole world is lost. In the third movie, he is reborn and a new love interest is introduced, we never know if he falls truly in love with her but that mystery is part of the magic. The Bourne Legacy has none of the complex emotions, personal crises, or the long suffering necessary for true love and it ends with the happy couple riding around on a boat together. If you’re looking for a great couple love story I suggest Fight Club, the story of a man torn between himself and the woman he loves.
