Bryan Lienesch82 - You can't really call 'Legacy' another sequel, so let's just call it the next installment in the franchise. And if you go back and watch the first three movies first to refresh yourself, you'll appreciate much more just how masterfully the story in 'Legacy' is interwoven as it occurs along the same timeline as 'Ultimatum'.

CinemaVisitor Erik60 - Jeremy Renner was an excellent choice to restart the series. Even though it isn't as great as the previous ones it is a decent action flick
