Critic reviews for Chapter 5

After what I- and apparently not that many other people- would consider a rocky start, Legion has figured out a great dynamic between a group of characters.

It cannot be overstated how good Plaza is here, using her laid-back, sarcastic charm to infuse every Lenny moment with a mocking humor.

There is no special effect, camera or editing trick as effective as Aubrey Plaza's face, which is utterly terrifying this episode.

It's still playing its cards close to its chest, but Legion is finally starting to give us hints at what kind of a hand it's got.

I loved this episode! The story is barreling forward, and the plot is much easier to follow. I can't wait to see how they escape Clockworks, and if the contraption Loudermilk came up with can help David regain control.

Great work from the cast again, and some beautifully designed shots, particularly the wobbly angles and dreamlike camerawork in the assault on Division 3.
