Anonymous asked: I'm sorry to bother you, I just read your review on The Bourne Legacy and it has confused me a little. You see, the movie did have a driving force of the plot through out most of it: kill Aaron Cross. It's not as obvious as the "gotta get my chems" theme that Mr. Cross obsesses over for the second half, but it is there from the beginning. Just a thought.
There’s no way this is bothersome, the apology is unnecessary.
As for the movie, “kill Aaron Cross” just isn’t enough. If it was, scripts wouldn’t be necessary. There’s never a good reason given to kill Aaron Cross. Why would stopping the program mean murdering everyone involved? That part never made sense.
On the other side, Cross’ only motivation in the movie is the medication. That’s it. A wholly selfish reason for him to murder at least a couple of totally innocent people in the movie to get something he doesn’t even need. He just wants it. I never found the character likable nor did I feel compelled to root for him at any point. He’s never more morally defensible than those chasing him.
