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
Religion induced idiocy.
This film isn't bad, it's completely and utterly stupid.
And that's far, far worse.
Essentially a rehash of The Terminator but with angels instead of robots, Legion is entirely unoriginal action horror B-movie schlock but it makes for a enjoyable guilty pleasure thanks to its grotesque and nasty gore scenes and fun action beats.
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…
God is a capricious asshole.
Legion follows a group of people (including Dennis Quaid, Tyrese Gibson, Kate Walsh and a pregnant Adrianne Palicki) who are stranded in a diner in the middle of a desert. When the diner is attacked by a possessed old lady (one of the movie's highlights), the collective begin to think something's not right. When the TV signal stops and the desert is flooded by a giant swarm of locusts, exiled angel Michael (Paul Bettany) shows up to confirm what we've been thinking all along: Shit's fucked. (By shit's fucked, I mean that Palicki's unborn child is actually the saviour of mankind and we'll all be saved if the diner inhabitants can weather the invasion of…
Fun as fuck. Gritty, violent and sincerely creepy. The actors really commit to their parts, despite how wildly silly it gets. There's something strangely comforting about a group of (cliched) characters, trapped in a familiar space, coming together to fight a common enemy. It works almost every time. Come for the subdued, dusty and hopeless landscape; stay for the ice cream man.
I fucking love this horrible film
Some good ideas and the Sci-fi visuals okay - it's at its best when Paul Bettany is involved - we didn't need all the modern day action sequences.
paul bettany playing an angel, you mean playing himself? (okay i'm sorry i'm leaving now)
This Scott Stewart(DARK SKIES,HOLIDAYS) directed(and co-written) film expands upon the concept that was introduced in THE PROPHECY which had exiled Angels extracting their vengeance on Earth,with the main battle between humans,demonic angels,and the living dead taking place at a remote diner where good angel Paul Bettany(GANGSTER NO. #1,CAPTAIN AMERICA:CIVIL WAR) aids the trapped humans(who are composed of the likes of Dennis Quaid[DREAMQUEST,VANTAGE POINT],Lucas Blacks[THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS:TOKYO DRIFT,COLD MOUNTAIN],Kate Walsh[KICKING AND SCREAMING,NORMAL LIFE],Charles S. Dutton[ALIEN3,SECRET WINDOW],and Tyrese Gibson[FOUR BROTHERS,2 FAST 2 FURIOUS]) in their battle against the renegade angels and their zombie warriors. Even if it gets into some serious firearms play,LEGION still works as a serious horror film as Stewart displays plenty of rousing horror sequences and gains…
Meh. Wasn't the worst thing ever.
Well, that was... interesting. Sort of.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I mostly just watched this because it has a pretty awesome cast. I mean, Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid, Charles S. Dutton, and Adrianne Palicki? How could I not want to watch that?
So... did they ever specifically explain why it is so important for this particular baby to be born? I mean God wants to wipe out all of humanity, but he'll let them live if this baby is born? Why is this particular baby so significant?
Also... why would you fight an angel with a gun? I mean, I'm not biblical scholar, but it just seems to me that gun fire would not really have that much effect on an angel.
I went and saw this movie in the theater and stayed through the whole thing. I don't know why.
Can't tell if satire or not.
Working on adding notes for all of them.
Almost any movie directed…
