The cool costumes and set designs almost make it worthwhile, so long as the sound's turned down and you don't have to hear the witless dialogue

| Original Score: 3/5

Q Network Film Desk

Perhaps ahead of its time, certainly too ambitious for its budget and its era, Legend is nevertheless a fascinating film

| Original Score: 3.5/4

Apollo Guide

Could have been a genre classic if it had benefited from a meatier screenplay and a studio that didn't butcher the final product.

Ridley Scott's exclusive-to-DVD re-edit of Legend, no pun intended, is fantastic.

Scott is less interested in unraveling a plot than he is in capturing the look and feel of myth

Thatcher. Reagan. Flock of Seagulls. These weren't the only evil things from the 1980s. There were also Hollywood fantasy movies such as this one . . .

The movie is enchanting and has moments of magic, but it's an utter train wreck, overwhelmed by cheesy special effects, dialogue writ insanely large, and a kind of goofy plot.
