I really enjoyed this stupid movie.

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

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.

First-time feature director Scott Stewart is a former ILM special effects wizard who's been given the keys to the store and it shows. There's little sense of narrative cohesion - or any explanation for the moments of madness.

More than a little silly, it veers between high camp and supernatural hokum as an overqualified cast gives the portentous, Bible-based action far more conviction than it deserves.

Despite the religious trappings, Legion is an old fashioned shoot-'em-up with satisfying gunfights, a pacey plot and barely a dull moment. Dumb fun.

I haven't had more fun since Eight Legged Freaks.

Entertainingly trashy thriller, elevated by strong performances and some gleefully over-the-top moments.

Goofily entertaining, especially when the cast isn't speaking, this rip-roaring blasphemous diversion is worth a gander or two, especially for those who enjoy bug attacks, exploding crucified humans, grossly expandable limbs, and loads of gunfire.

Anne Rice was right; angels are just as hot and just as deadly as those bloodsuckers from Twilight and True Blood.

If you wanted to see a new movie about a dude sportin' a six pack and fluffy white wings, you could do worse than Legion. And by doing worse, you could see Dwayne Johnson snatching spent molars in the family attraction, The Tooth Fairy.

It's a wonderful life where every time you hear a whelp ring out, another angel gets his head blown off!

[Has] at least a semi-awareness of the ridiculous hooey it's slinging ... a B-movie that's almost as much fun to laugh with as it is to laugh at. Note: I did say almost.

A ridiculous piece of hokum that is far more fun than it has a right to be.

While it's hard to give the movie a whole-hearted recommendation, Legion is better than it should have been due to Stewart's attempts to NOT make it into just another high concept video game existing merely to set up a franchise.

Director Scott Stewart, a former special-effects man, has not made a film for the ages, but he has made a decent piece of mindless entertainment.

A dramatically muddled but surprisingly involving Bible-themed fantasy thriller...

Bettany's presence keeps Legion from becoming just another zombie variant.

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.
