LEGION was never going to be a great movie. But it should at least have been FUN. Sadly, it is a poorly written, poorly acted bore.     The concept, while ridiculous, could have led to a crazy, over-the-top action fantasy. Apparently, the angels of heaven have been directed to begin the apocalypse, because God and the angels are just so fed up with how awful mankind has become. (I have to point out that this is kinda what happened prior to Noah and his flood, and after that, …

Guns and Bullets Against Demonic Angels?
   Gosh, I just reviewed “The Book Of Eli” last week and here I am about to review a film that portrays a Biblical theme. Movies such as “The Prophecy” have portrayed a very chaotic vision of Heaven and Earth; such a premise is usually very interesting and intriguing, I find movies that attempt to bring the wrath of God into exposition quite enticing. Take note that director Scott Stewart’s apocalyptic action-horror thriller “LEGION” is a not an …

Pros: Fully armored angels always look cool, good or bad.     Cons: Pretty much everything.     The Bottom Line: Simply put? I'm not impressed. I don't know when I last gave a movie 1 star, but here you go.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie''s plot. "Hey, Nicole, that Legion movie looks kind of cool.  Should I see it?"    Oh, you mean that apocalyptic-looking movie where the angel …

Over the years I have watched more horror films than I can keep track of.  Within my circle of friends I have acquired a reputation for watching just about anything, no matter how good or bad the film may be.  I would even admit to owning some films that have shocked quite a number of people.  I thoroughly enjoy the sexploitation films the feature Pam Grier, I seek out b-rated horror films and sometimes find a charm like The Trilogy of Terror, and I even brave those films that have …

GOOD FLICK THAT IS WORTH YOUR TIME
      LEGION      These end of the world flicks are always a hit with me for some reason, especially ones that are more along the lines of horror. I don't know why but I always enjoy them and tend to forgive mishaps more for these. This one while not a perfect movie I s very fun one, especially the first half of the film. Also I am a Tyrese fan so that also helped the film out a lot in my mind, ever since his turn in "Baby Boy" I have been a …

LEGION attracts the viewer because of the cover of the DVD: would Paul Bettany, looking very buff as a cross between evil dark gear under the glow of divine light, betray his fans by making a bad picture? Well, yes. And so is the case for Dennis Quaid, Charles S. Dutton, Tyrese Gibson, etc. perhaps there just aren't many scripts form which to choose that draws actors of this quality into a unintentionally comical dud. But here we are with over two hours of nonsense that may have at its core a good …

One line saved this movie from being a complete bore for me: Dennis Quaid: "Besides, I don't even believe in God." Archangel Micahel: "That's fine. He doesn't believe in you either."      Aside from being just a great one-two punch back at modern society's pubescent protests against God, that line pretty much sums up the whole point and plot of the movie: God has threw up his arms and said screw it. Let's get rid of these lil' bastards. The last time he did …

I'm a big fan of apocalyptic films and this one was also a good one. There are not a lot of films like this and thats what made it enjoyable.

God has lost faith in humanity, something that hasn't happened since the days of Noah. But instead of a flood, He has sent down a legion of angels, who possess the bodies of weak-minded people, turning them into ... certainly not demons, but then again, there's nothing angelic about these people, so maybe there's no other way to describe them. Anyway, it seems the only one who has kept the faith is the archangel Michael (Paul Bettany), who directly disobeys God by protecting what he was sent to …

Booo....
review by . January 22, 2010
Most of the time the trailers shown before the actual film indicate the type of film the audience is about to see. Prior to the viewing of "Legion" the new apocalyptic film directed by Scott Stewart, a medley of blood-filled horror and fast-car action sequences erupted on the big screen offering the usual fare meant to tantalize 17 to 30 year-olds everywhere. However, "Legion" albeit filled with much killing and scores of hideous zombies, does have a bit of a plot line with the potential for introspective …

Upset with mankind's direction and having promised to never flood the Earth again, God sends down his legion of angels to wipe the slate clean and start all over in "Legion." Standing in His way is Michael the Archangel (Paul Bettany), who still has faith in humanity.    So how does Michael plan on preventing the destruction of mankind? He believes that the birth of a child in a sleepy little diner in Paradise Falls, NM is the key. If the child is born, there will be hope for …
