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.
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.
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.
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.
