Director Scott Stewart, who also co-wrote the film, shows far too many scenes in which characters talk to try to cover up plot holes that bring the film to a grinding halt.
February 15, 2013
An utterly ludicrous entry in the biblical-horror subgenre.
September 9, 2011
Why spend your money watching an extended trailer?
December 25, 2010
Heaven help these fallen angels.
December 22, 2010
A bold faced rip off of the "Terminator" films...
November 5, 2010
...a disappointingly uneven and thoroughly pointless horror effort...
September 13, 2010
Swallowed up by its effort to be a film of multiple genres. The only genre it earns a place in is comedy; it achieves an amount of unwarranted laughs of biblical proportions.
June 2, 2010
"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."
May 31, 2010
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.
April 18, 2010
While entertaining--and you do get the Angel Explodo--it does stretch its silliness factor just a bit much.
April 1, 2010
Ah well. At least we know Paul Bettany's mortgage is covered.
March 19, 2010
Oh, what a wacky bunch of stereotypes in this diner! There's a rich guy, a black person and even Dennis Quaid!
March 15, 2010
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.
March 5, 2010
Legion has the audacity to set itself up for sequels without giving the audience enough compelling reason to care about this first installment.
March 5, 2010
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.
March 5, 2010
Celestial tosh of less than Biblical proportions.
March 5, 2010
The sort of confused mess liable to provoke an apocalyptic cull of humanity by any rational supreme being with an interest in cinema.
March 5, 2010
Bettany's job: rescuing the modern Mary, a skanky waitress, and saving her unborn child. Our job: holding back the laughter.
March 5, 2010
The first time, God did it with a flood. Now he's doing it with creepy monsters who can only be repelled with deafening fire from sexy weapons. At least it will keep you awake.
