MayaDeren_fan’s review published on Letterboxd:
Too naive and simplified for any actual merit of quality. The narrative arc is full of dumbed-down stereotypes that give The Black Legion no depth whatsoever. There is an ignorance and a lack of development to the story. You don’t really understand why Bogart becomes bad, he just does; the amount of build up to any major plot point in the film is next to none. Not to mention it’s slow and boring too. Put boring with bare-bones, Neanderthal storytelling, you’ve got yourself a forgettable movie. That is all.
