I like Jeremy Renner, action hero. He was great in The Avengers, clearly Oscar worthy in The Hurt Locker, and a good addition to MI:4. So I have a good feeling about this one.
Much appreciate the lack of amnesia in this one, plus Ed Norton as bad guy is always intriguing. This movie also seems to be doing a nice melding with the original Bourne series, not just saying it has the same name and background and letting loose from there. Plus it’s being directed by Tony Gilroy who not only directed Michael Clayton, but wrote the screenplays for the Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy, and Bourne Ultimatum – clearly he knows his Bourne world.
I think Jeremy upstaged Tom Cruise in MI Ghost Protocol because he can act. I’m really looking forward to this one, though, again, I’d like to see Angela Bassett as the female protagonist.
Yep. The Renner can act. The Cruise can run. Not the same thing.
Agreed – Angela Basset would kick some serious ass.
Yesterday on the train I saw a guy who was an exact hybrid of Jeremy Renner and a young Harrison Ford (circa Star Wars IV). I barely knew how to keep my hands to myself.
I applaud and marvel at your self control
