REVIEW:

Legion sounds like a great idea on paper. Gun toting angels sent to Earth to wipe out the human race, creepy old ladies climbing the ceiling, a battle between Michael (Bettany) and Gabriel (Durand), and plenty of action sequences. But thatís about it. Good on paper. The execution leaves much, much to be desired in this darkly shot, slow paced, poorly acted post apocalyptic film that presents interesting ideas but never knows what to do with them.

Legion takes itself way too seriously and never justifies the reason why. Itís truly unfortunate to see a compelling premise, solid actors, a visionary director all fall victim to a rather bland film that never delivers on what the trailers promise. Itís an epic fail.

The only angel who has hope for humanity (until he sees this film) is Michael. He arrives in a small out-of-the- way diner to protect the mother (Palicki) of an unborn child who may be the key to saving mankind. Michaelís only army is a group of strangers held up in the diner now forced to defend themselves against a siege of angels.!!

But here is one of the problems with Legion: it never explains exactly how or why the unborn child is a savior? We knew John Connor in The Terminator was expected to lead a resistance that would eventually quell the Machines. His whole destiny was summed up in one line of dialogue.

He is humanityís last hope. But here, weíre never given any more insight into how exactly the child will be our salvation. It seems the film is relying too much on the concept of faith without giving us or the characters a reason why it should.

Also, hereís an interesting idea that not once is addressed. How can anyone in the film have faith when God has lost faith in us? What benefit do those people have in holding onto something that no longer has meaning? The film never answers any of those questions, nor does it even ask them. Honestly itís something you canít help but wonder because if the characters ponder those same questions or even figure out the answer themselves, than that alone would be a compelling and satisfactory resolution for any of the characters arcs. But itís never addressed.

The action sequences are slim, at best. The explosions and gun battles in the trailers are all you need to see to get the full throttle experience the film fails to capitalize on. Plus, the action itself was rather unexciting, uninspired, and when you get right down to it, no fun. The film at least could have made up for its thin plot with some over top engaging action that leaves you cheering, cringing and laughing at the same time. But no, it doesnít even do that. Again, it takes itself way too seriously.
