Yeah, I know ;)But really, it just fell very flat in comparison. Jeremy Renner was fine, but they didn't utilize him correctly. The story itself could have been much darker, which would have better utlized Renner.
Oh I agree. Just thought it was funny that your assessment of the movie was so similar.
Looking back, it's kind of stunning how severely lacking the motivations of the main character were. In the original Bourne trilogy, Bourne wanted to know who he was, wanted to protect his girl, wanted to avenge her, wanted to make amends for his past, etc., etc. There was a lot driving him, and making him a complex character.
But Aaron Cross just simply didn't want to die, and didn't want to be dumb again. That about sums it up.
