Ultra-Sharp Trailer for 'The Bourne Legacy'

Have to admit, a bit gutsy for an American trailer, refreshing. The evolution of Jeremy Renner's character, starting as a beat up and shaken hardly recognizable guy, to the sharp-eyed Aaron Cross is effective -- loads up backstory with little dialogue and strong visuals. I especially like, at :40, the doctor looking at Cross' hand saying 'that healed quick'. You gotta wonder.

If the movie plays as well as this trailer we're in for another evolution in the action genre. What Matt Damon accomplished in the first films -- the distance he put between himself and the conventions of previous action/spy flicks -- Jeremy Renner does the same here. Great action, deep character. The franchise sets the bar higher (again). Not bad.
