A remarkable and bleak fantasy thriller for folks that like their fantasy based on thick characterization and less humongous battles.

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

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

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

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 . . .
