[5.00/10] Legion (2010)

Legion (2010)

Short review: "Legion" is about the apocalypse and one fallen angel who tries to save the last hope for humanity. With such a high concept, it's weird how it's actually taking place in a rather constrained space - a truck diner lost in an American desert! How silly! "Legion" is definitely not a good movie, however, it is not terrible by any means. Unlike recent biblical horrors, the film tries very hard not to follow the lame clichés of recent horrors. Unfortunately, it takes itself a little to seriously with God's legion of zombies that are supposed to be possessed by angels. The film also was terribly written, with weird scenes that needed some serious editing. Besides the bad script and erratic editing, the acting was terrible. The only exceptions were Paul Bettany and Lucas Black. Everyone else was uninspired and made the bad screenplay look much more terrible than it was. The action scenes are where this film soared. The fight between the two Archangels was incredible, and the visual effects were on par. It's no wonder that the old lady scene is shown in previews, because it's one of the best moments, if not the best. However it spoils the surprise. All in all, if it wasn't for the reasonable effects and action scenes "Legion" would have been unwatchable.

  • My Rating: 5.00/10
