Legion (2010)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Despite a solid cast and intermittent thrills, Legion suffers from a curiously languid pace, confused plot, and an excess of dialogue.

Celestial tosh of less than Biblical proportions.

There are so many things that could have been done with this premise that the movie simply doesn't do. Doesn't even think of doing.

An utterly ludicrous entry in the biblical-horror subgenre.

Audience Reviews for Legion

Okay .. neat premise .. okay action . . I am pretty sure this is full of at least 2 dozen plot holes. BUT I had fun watching it. Not bad not good. I would almost say they tried very hard to not piss anyone off when it came to religion. Where they may have been able to go overboard one way or the other. In the end, like I said, I had fun watching it.

Legion is a supernatural biblical horror flick that had the potential of being so much better than what it turned out to be. The film's biggest problem is that it relies more on special features than on story, thus the plot itself suffers from lacking ideas and undeveloped characters that really doesn't pay off. Legions had a very interesting concept, but it really didn't ended being a boring, unimpressive ride that simply failed at being a memorable and ultimately enjoyable film. There are a few chilling moments, but it's not enough to make for a memorable horror picture. The end of the world aspect of the film really didn't tie in to the overall story and I felt it was pretty sloppy. The way it was thrown in to the movie, seemed lazy and out of place, as if the filmmakers just needed some leverage to the films plot. The film's downfall is aided by a wooden cast of actors, and the somewhat good start quickly falls apart and becomes a train wreck. If the film had a better plot, and didn't rely entirely on special effects, I think that this would have been a more compelling film to watch. As it stands, Legions is a poor horror tale that is quite forgettable in the long run. The film is defi8nitely not worth your time, and it's just an effects extravaganza that lacks plot, good characters and memorable chills. Legions fails in terms of a horror film with religious overtones, and the potential in making a great picture is wasted after the first thirty minutes of the film when the film relies more on effects. Legions is a film that lacks substance and good direction. This is not a film worth your time, and it's a poor attempt at creating a biblical horror yarn.
