Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
The events in this movie take place around the same time as the events in The Bourne Ultimatum (2007). When a British reporter was writing an expose about Black Ops operations Treadstone and Black Briar, and the ones responsible for them are concerned. And when Jason Bourne, former Treadstone operative got the file on Treadstone and Black Briar and gave it to Pamela Landy who then passed it to the media. When the men behind Treadstone and Black Briar learn of this, they're concerned how this will affect other ops they have. They decide it's best to shut down all ops and make sure make everyone involved disappears. They try to take out Aaron Cross who is part of another op called Outcome, but he manages to survive. He then seeks out Dr. Marta Shearing who worked on him when he began. It seems part of the program is for all subjects to take medications but he has run out, which is why he seeks her. But someone tries to kill her. He saves her and she tells him, he should have stopped ...Written by
Outcome, the program Edward Norton's character heads, is jeopardized by Matt Damon's character, Jason Bourne, even though Bourne never physically appears in the movie. Norton and Damon co-starred in Rounders (1998). See more »
While waiting in the airport to fly to Manila, Dr. Marta Shearing walks over to a newsstand and glances at a USA Today paper about the lab she worked at. The headline next to it read "Tablets Take PC Evolution To Next Level". This was a headline from 2011, but the events of this movie are occurring no later than early 2005. See more »
Retired Adm. Mark Turso, USN:
Is it possible?
Possible? We had Bourne six weeks ago in Moscow. He was on foot, wounded, with a full Cossack posse up his ass. Somehow, he walked out of there. I've kind of lost my perspective on what's possible.

I really love theses kind of films where you have the agent running around like he's a fugitive wanted by the government so I was really excited going into this movie
When I saw Bourne Legacy last month, I have to say a great film. Aaron Cross is much better than Jason Bourne in my opinion. The casting were also good. Jeremy Renner fitted the main role verywell and Rachel Weisz was also great as a female supporting role. I hope that they both will star again in the next sequel and the franchise in my opinion has finally found their right replacement for Matt Damon
Lets hope that in the future, both Renner and Damon agree to team up and put a stop to the program once and for all
