* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: One may argue that the Bourne series [[MyRealDaddy has two daddies]] with Doug Liman and Paul Greengrass. With ''The Bourne Identity'', director Doug Liman gave the film a unique style, but it was Paul Greengrass who would flesh it out in its sequels ''The Bourne Supremacy'' and ''The Bourne Ultimatum'', with Liman still involved as executive producer, garnering even greater acclaim. But when Greengrass turned down the offer to direct ''The Bourne Legacy'', Creator/MattDamon left with him, saying he wouldn't do any more movies without him, and Liman left too. This is part of why ''Legacy'' wasn't as well-received as its predecessors. It should be noted that Tony Gilroy wrote all four films (and directed ''Legacy''). The fact that he wasn't involved with ''Jason Bourne'' even though Greengrass and Damon returned probably led to it also not being as well-received as the original trilogy.

** Inverted with the later films. Though not technically a sequel, ''Legacy'' didn't receive the same amount of praise that the Damon films did, and despite bringing Damon back, neither has ''Jason Bourne''.

** A notable aversion that is somewhere between this and EvenBetterSequel. Each film is considered to be quite good and at the least on par with each other. Although there are a group of people who consider the third film the best due to having the highest {{HSQ}}.

** Popular Australian Actor/Comedian Shane Jacobson's brief appearance as the Factory Owner in ''Legacy'' was well recieved by Aussies, many of whom paid more attention to him in his scenes than anyone actually relevant to the plot.
