All the films mentioned by name in Kim Newman's definitive encyclopedia of horror films, Nightmare Movies. Well worth a read.…
When the last angel falls, the fight for mankind begins.
An out-of-the-way diner becomes the unlikely battleground for the survival of the human race. When God loses faith in humankind, he sends his legion of angels to bring on the Apocalypse. Humanity's only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a desert diner with the Archangel Michael.
Apparently I've seen this before? Well that fact was more of a revelation than the apocalyptic bollocks that they managed to conjure from that book of the Bible. A ludicrous plot sees The Archangel Michael (Paul Bethany) pop down from Heaven, cut off his wings and head for a diner hoping to save a pregnant waitress's unborn baby. You'd think he'd be armed with lightning bolts or the wrath of God, but no, he has guns...lots of guns, and tattoos.
God has lost Faith in mankind and decided to wipe us out. No flood this time, just an army of Angels who seem to possess humans at will. To say this film is stupid would be an understatement, it's…
For greatest (or only) enjoyment, watch this while drunk and laugh all the way through at the unintentional but prevalent humor brought forth by everything that is Legion. Another fun thing to do is predicting the characters lines and see how many you can get right. My score: 3
Well this is an intriguing premise, God has lost faith in humanity and instead of using a flood to wipe out humanity he's sending an army of angels. But the Archangel Michael (Paul Bettany) thinks this is a bad call and voluntarily goes to Earth to protect the next savior. Well this is going be cool! An angel flying around using a flaming sword or some holy artifacts to.....wait he doesn't have wings and he only uses plain old machine guns. Well surely there will an epic backdrop like a famous church! The Hagia Sophia or Notre Dame or......a roadside diner?!? Really?!? Well surely Michael fighting an army of angels will be really......he only fights one angel and the rest…
Religion induced idiocy.
This film isn't bad, it's completely and utterly stupid.
And that's far, far worse.
'Legion' is a badly made stupid mess. But its also quite possibly the most entertainingly awful film that I've seen in a long time. Its fundamentally terrible across the board with its ridiculously idiotic script and laughable performances. Yet somehow among the shower of shit it throws at you I was oddly entertained.
As a taster to the films ridiculousness: near the start of the movie an elderly women on a zimmer frame enters the diner where our protagonists are. After a brief introduction she reveals that she is possessed by a demon by calling a women a *bleepety* *bleep*, then gets hit with a frying pan and crawls onto the ceiling (with laughable CGI I must add). The whole thing culminates in her 'bitchslapping' Dennis Quaid over a table and darting across the room like she is on wheels. Its so awful I think it might actually be a stroke of genius.
Film 15/30 of Scavenger Hunt Challenge #4
Task #8. A film featuring a humanoid character with wings
So, humanity is beyond hope - it's time to be wiped off the map... Except this baby who's actually humanity's last hope... So, humanity is NOT actually beyond hope then?
So, the big guy who lives in the clouds and watches us masturbate - was just bored and wanted to reset his Animal Crossing town? Or start a new Sims family - if that floats your boat... Personally I'm an Animal Crossing guy - I can't get enough of those talking animals. Especially the talking squirrels - when they walk around and their tails bounce - it makes me happy...
This left me extremely disappointed. It was such a great idea, it's maddening how they failed to use it.
horrible. nothing gets explained
Konflik yang ditawarkan memang tak biasa, sisi teknik dan penggarapannya pun lumayan baik. Namun penceritaannya sangat payah dan menggelikan. No offense.
Congratulations, Legion, on becoming the first movie I filed under the "better when drunk" tag.
It's the end of the world as we know it!! God has decided to wipe the Earth clean in a new apocalypse, but fortunately for humankind one of his gun-totin' warrior angels (?) decides to break from the ranks and defend us from extinction. The venue for the Final Battle is an out-of-the-way diner in the American Southwest, where a very special baby is about to be born, and which must be protected at all costs.
This flick is a totally bizarre amalgam of bits stolen from "The Terminator," "The Omen," "The Seventh Sign" and even "Night of the Living Dead" featuring cool creatures, tons of bone-crushing action and a healthy amount of Book of Revelations style creepiness. It may not be logical but it sure isn't boring!!
When in the movie the wings appear? Who the fuck do you are, angel of ricky martin? and the worst thing it's because River is tied 1-1.
What the fuck was in the mind of Gallardo when he bought Casco? Gallardo if you're reading this, what the fuck were you thinking?
PUT PIRI IN THE COURT AND NOT THE CUADRIPLEGIC OF CASCO.
Very nice movie.
What the hell.
When God gets tired of all the bullshit on Earth, the angels come down to clean up the party.
for everybody who thinks that Paul Bettany normally appears in great or at least good movies will be in for a surprise with this one....
