The Bourne Legacy

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

Jeremy Renner reboots the Matt Damon franchise as Aaron Cross, another highly trained government killer. The film pits Cross against his would-be assailants and sends him running alongside fellow target Marta (Rachel Weisz). Some old faces make cameos. But largely, the film misses the craft of previous director Paul Greengrass. It’s not sharp, too tangled narratively, and while it picks up at the end, it’s hard to get excited about and doesn’t touch its predecessors.

In The Cure for Everything: Untangling Twisted Messages about Health, Fitness and Happiness (Beacon Press, $25), health policy and fitness expert Timothy Caulfield explores and debunks research, crazes and advertising messages. He reveals why exercise, although critical for good health, is not the best way to lose weight, and that diet is 80 to 90 percent of the weight-loss equation. Most of us eat far too much, and don’t exercise at an intensity that’s high enough to actually increase our fitness level.
