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.

Why spend your money watching an extended trailer?

A bold faced rip off of the "Terminator" films...

A few minutes shorter, and an ending that doesn't outright quote the beginning of the movie, and we might have had something here.

...a disappointingly uneven and thoroughly pointless horror effort...

"It's a labored, darkly photographed, cringingly acted hodgepodge of fanciful geek-bait genre ideas and hideous connect-the-dots scripting. Who knew the end of the world could be such a screaming bore."

Inane dialogue, a bad, derivative storyline and evil angels make up this overblown, poor-man's would-be Terminator in which an exploding upside-down crucified man is one of the low points. Just when you think the film couldn't get any worse, it does.

It's up to the Archangel Michael (Paul Bettany) to save the human race - or at least the denizens of a desert diner - after a disappointed God loses his temper and sets off the Apocalypse.

While entertaining--and you do get the Angel Explodo--it does stretch its silliness factor just a bit much.

Ah well. At least we know Paul Bettany's mortgage is covered.

Strangers thrown together by fate are trapped inside an isolated diner as zombies converge outside %u2014 an army sent by God to clean out humankind.

Oh, what a wacky bunch of stereotypes in this diner! There's a rich guy, a black person and even Dennis Quaid!

In the end, you're left wondering why the Almighty has so much trouble disposing of a small group hiding out in a diner and why Paul Bettany signed up for such a pointless venture in the first place.

Legion has the audacity to set itself up for sequels without giving the audience enough compelling reason to care about this first installment.

Could have been T2 with seraphs, or Assault On Precinct 13 crossed with Revelations. Instead, it's a lazy genre bore. Doesn't bode well for Priest, the next Stewart/Bettany film in the pipeline.

The sort of confused mess liable to provoke an apocalyptic cull of humanity by any rational supreme being with an interest in cinema.
