There's a lot going on, a lot of theology, a lot of bad horror movie effects.

The down time between action scenes is deadly dull and the film's hoary cinematic shorthand (i.e., a young Black man enters the film to the sound of hip-hop and fights with his baby mama) is more terrifying than anything else served up.

This feature debut by writer-director Scott Stewart may sound like an enjoyably goofy theo-horror romp, but it's a serious penance.

Legion may traffic in signposts of the apocalypse, but the whole affair mostly indicates that we're in the movie wasteland that is January.

There are no orgies of planetary destruction; the action almost never leaves the diner, which may be just as well, since a short scene in heaven looks as if it were filmed on the set of a community college Shakespeare production.

A cartoonishly grim supernatural thriller that could stand a lot less talk and a lot more thrills.

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

Even if you overlook the lousy lighting, awkward editing, and uneven acting, there's so much talking -- and so little story -- that your mind is likely to wander.

Alas, after a brisk start, the script turns out to be a rough and humorless beast slouching its way towards utter ludicrousness.

God's given up on the human race and plans to wipe it out. Again.

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