Not Bad If your into Angel type Movies

by TK on 6/12/2010

Not too bad, the plot sucked badly with some sort of battle for mankind to prove to God that we deserve to live. The actors were great at what they do, its just that the story was missing much needed detail on the angels and what started it all. Also the people fighting were more like demons than just mere possession, that was a big mistake again in story line. If they would have made it a little longer, corrected some music, and not leave blanks in the story line this could have been a sequel. Again the actors were fantastic, just the director or story maker lacked.

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.
