When God loses faith in humankind, he sends his legion of angels to bring on the Apocalypse. Humanity's only hope for survival lies in a group of strangers trapped in an out-of-the-way, 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…
Not a bad little apocalypse romp, although it brings up the usual sorts of questions:
- Why do guns work on supernatural creatures?
- Why are biblical apocalypses so often a local phenomenon? Granted that in this case there are quite widespread repercussions, but the fact that there's pockets of untouched space for people to hide in from what should be the end of ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING bugs me.
Two severed baby thumbs up.
This is what the Robbie Williams song 'Angels' is about.
I like demonic invasion movies and survivor hold up horror films. I don't know about this one, but there is some interesting little twists here and there. Granted it has been a long time since I watched the movie I don't recall anything particularly engrossing about it and the guy on the cover doesn't fit the part in my opinion.
I was only half paying attention through much of it, and the ending was still predictable as fuck; there are no surprises here. The CGI is terrible. The writing is banal, as are the characters. Legion moves at a very slow pace and takes itself way too seriously.
A boring movie that lacks fun, excitement, or thrills.
battle is on
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
