The Bourne Legacy

The opening shot is spectacular, especially when the helicopter swoops back and gives you the perspective of the wild canyon with rushing waterfall (and what looks to be a cave in the side of the rocky cliff). The photography, especially in the first half or so of the movie, is brilliant. I don’t think it got great reviews, but the photography itself makes it worthwhile. It’s sad to me that so many talented photographers are neglected in reviews of movies. Not only are the shots here great, but the angles, the lighting, and the juxtaposition of wilderness and urban scenes, back-and-forth, great pacing, visually stunning. Cinematography by Robert Elswit, film editing by John Gilroy.
