Editors Note
Note Scott Stewart's supernatural thriller LEGION, scripted by Peter Schink, concerns a group of strangers in an out-of-the-way eatery who become the first line of defense when God, believing the human race is no longer worthy of Him, decides to end their existence. This motley crew's only spiritual ally is the archangel Michael, played by Paul Bettany. Dennis Quaid, Tyrese Gibson, Charles S. Dutton, and Lucas Black co-star in the Screen Gems production.
Variety "[T]here's a rock-solid sincerity to most of the performances. Bettany conveys the right note of stoic selflessness..." 01/22/2010
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "It's an antidote to the sombre apocalypses of THE ROAD and THE BOOK OF ELI." 02/25/2010

ReviewSource Variety
Review Heavily armed archangels, flesh-chomping demons, humongous insect hordes and other unsettling signs of the apocalypse are on graphic, garish display in Legion, a dramatically muddled but surprisingly involving Bible-themed fantasy thriller that imagines Armageddon in a dingy roadside diner, a la "The Prophecy" meets "The Petrified Forest." Even when the blood-and-thunder hokiness of the over-the-top plot tilts perilously close to absurdity, the admirably straight-faced performances by well-cast lead players provide just enough counterbalance to sustain aud curiosity and sympathy. Expect strong (if not quite miraculous) opening-weekend biz, followed by extended afterlife on homevid and cable...First-time feature helmer Scott Stewart, co-founder of f/x company the Orphanage, begins with a bang -- several bangs, actually -- in a prologue that vaguely recalls the opening of James Cameron's original "Terminator." No less a luminary than the archangel Michael (Paul Bettany) plops down into a dank Los Angeles alley and, after painfully shedding his wings and loading up with automatic weapons, commandeers a cop car for a race against time...Working from a fanciful script he co-wrote with Peter Schink, helmer Stewart strikes a sometimes effective, sometimes awkward balance between f/x-amped sequences of slam-bang action -- the diner is repeatedly attacked by Gabriel's minions during "Night of the Living Dead"-style onslaughts -- and intensely emotional, dialogue-heavy scenes enhanced by handheld camerawork...Ironically, "Legion" could miss out on attracting some ticketbuyers who might, under different circumstances, be drawn to the pic's subject matter: churchgoers who flock to religious-themed dramas like "Fireproof." They're the ones who'll be most upset by the abundance of F-bombs in the dialogue, and the very idea that God ever should be second-guessed...Tech values are largely impressive, though the editing of some fight scenes causes more confusion than excitement.
