People who dig intelligent political thrillers with a heaping side of way-cool action -- like the last three "Bourne" movies.

THREE GOOD REASONS

  • 1Jeremy Renner is quickly becoming Hollywood's go-to guy for action. He's playing Hawkeye this summer in "The Avengers" and Tom Cruise's two-fisted frenemy in "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol." If there's anyone who can fill Matt Damon's shoes, it's Renner.
  • 2Tony Gilroy wrote all three of the previous "Bourne" movies and directed the wildly underrated "Michael Clayton," starring George Clooney. If there's anyone who can fill director Paul Greengrass's shoes, it's Gilroy.
  • 3Rachel Weisz also stars in this flick, and she's good in just about anything.
