In the latest edition of “Movie Talk With Owen & Lisa,” Entertainment Weekly critics Owen Gleiberman and Lisa Schwarzbaum take on a Matt Damon-less Bourne film, The Bourne Legacy, “which is the last big movie of the summer that people are looking forward to,” Schwarzbaum says.

“I’ve always been a Jeremy Renner kind of girl and I think he absolutely nails it,” Schwarzabaum adds of Damon’s replacement.

“What I love about the Bourne movies is that they seem to be about something,” Gleiberman says. “But they’re really about nothing. This movie is just a game and yet it plugs you into the moment and Tony Gilroy gives you a feeling of urgency that I think Hitchcock would have loved.” Watch their full discussion below!
