Entertainment Weekly

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

This wan rebooting of the Christ tale has decent acting, serviceable if familiar visual effects, a few jump-in-your-seat moments, and the...

Orlando Sentinel

By Roger Moore
Profane, profanely silly and blasphemous to beat the band, Legion begins well before plunging into the abyss of tedium.

As for Legion, well, if you've seen one plague of flies and death and angels at war with each other, you've seen 'em all.

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...

This is an Awesome movie!!

By Virdie
I have to say that this movie was a little bit different then I expected, but it was fantastic. Definetly a keeper. You have Arch-Angels, possesions, gun fights and of course creepy old ladies. ...

Dear Friends, It is not the place of human beings to decide what is blasphemous and what is not. We have guidlines in religious text to help us decide what is and what is not. God can speak for...

Stop the Legion movie

By Stratologeo
Friends, Please do not see this movie. If you have ever loved God, please do not see this movie. The movie portrays Michael as defying God's will and thwarting the Apocalypse. First off, if God...

Just got back from watching a matinee of "Legion." My husband was really wanting to see this and I was also hoping it was going to be good. As we were walking out of the theatre, both of us said...

Two thumbs WAY down....and then some.

Big Steaming Pile of Legion...

Few movies have made me consider asking for my money back (Witches of Eastwick & Event Horizon come to mind)... Legion was one of them. It consistently fails to deliver on every promise it makes...

I had high hopes for Legion; the trailer for the movie is awesome! The only thing about Legion that is worth watching is the trailer. Seriously, you DO NOT need to waste your money or your time on...

Not really typical...

By misswings2488
The trailer depicts Legion as a typical religious end-of-the-world movie, I was surprised at how standard it isn’t – mostly. Also, the previews don’t give a lot of insight into what’s going to...
