The opening scene is tantalizingly familiar: A man floats, unmoving, in crystalline waters. It isn't Jason Bourne who springs from a frigid Alaskan river, though, but Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner
), otherwise known as the also-ran.
While Bourne was an elite soldier stripped of memory, trying to cleanse his soul (and our government), Cross is a bio-engineered action figure looking to get his next fix of super drugs. Not quite the same stakes, eh?
