For 3 months, I've been waiting to go see this movie. For 3 months, Isaw high expectations for this movie. After 3 months, I was not, in theleast bit, disappointed.
For those who did not have faith that this movie was good, you probablyeither need to see it again to try to understand the story or you needsome time to figure out what lesson this movie was trying to teach.
This movie, if you think about it closely and actually saw it, is alltied towards one powerful aspect of our everyday lives. This aspect iscalled faith. It actually took me 5 minutes after the movie to figure,okay, the whole thing was about keeping faith in everything we do, nomatter how hopeless it may be.
True, the trailers were very good, but the real opinion needs to comefrom the people who see this movie. What it looked like the plot wasgoing to unfold for the movie in these previews didn't match whatactually happened in it, but I understood why that was.
All in all, this movie will make you think a little, but after it mademe think, I saw everything going well for it.
I have a legion of faith for this movie. Do you?
I went to movie with my friend since he told trailers were promising.
But oh God....it was the most worthless direction i have ever seen....
crappiest story ever heard or seen...
and in a nutshell it was the worst movie of my life...
I want my money back...Please don't watch this movie.
It's a zombie movie...
But zombie's are made by Angels!!!! And one unborn baby of a remoteroadway waitress is the only hope for humans against theAngels!!!!!!!!! Holy Crap...i can't explain any further...
I need a memory erasing pill to forget this movie....
Not a movie for anyone of rigid mind, religious or not. This movie putshumanity and Angels in a place we all fear to be, exposed for what wemay be, for all to see. This is not an effects movie (thankfully), theeffects are pretty good, with nice use of sound and imagery, but it isthe underlying story, character developments and superb acting allaround that are telling and significant. Michael in particular is anamazing character both immense and personal.
As a believer myself I question any believer who finds asking thesequestions objectionable. There is almost nothing we give back thatconvince me we are worthy of the gifts we receive. Mercy is given, notowed. A terrifying reality yes, but one the humbled knows.
Take a walk through the valley of the shadow of death you won'tforget...
In this film we are looking at the usual end of the world setting. Buteven then its always interesting to see what happens next.
From the previews seen from Legion we've already learned that its aboutGod giving up on man and He sends angels to destroy man. So now anangel that does not believe in God's orders goes out to save mankind byprotecting a woman who's baby is the only hope mankind has ofsurviving. The story is very interesting and the cast is perfect forthis movie. Before the movie is over it leaves us on a littlecliffhanger. Its hard to tell if the "extermination" is over or not.But still the battle of Gabriel and Michael is pretty good. Some of thethings that happened are definitely leading up to something big.
So is this the next big action-apocalypse of the decade probably not.But still a pretty good action film that not all but a lot of moviegoers will enjoy. Me on the other hand I'm looking forward to a sequeland the upcoming developments to see that will definitely be enjoyable.
I had been waiting to see this movie since I first seen the red bandtrailer on Youtube, and I must say it was worth the wait! Legion keepsyou on the edge of your seat throughout most of the movie and eventhough a lot of content was shown in the trailers there is still a lotmore that wasn't.
The ending was a complete turn around that I can honestly say I didn'texpect.
If you're looking for a movie that's got a good amount of suspense andwill make you jump at times, while making you think about things thenLegion is a must see for you.
Freshman director Scott Stewart's high-octane apocalyptic actioneer"Legion" suffers from one contrivance after another, but thissuspenseful secular saga conjures up more than enough thrills, chillsand spills to keep audiences entertained with its audacity. A desolateroadside diner in a sprawl of hills in the middle of nowhere serves asthe setting for an end-game showdown between mankind and its Maker.Gladiatorial archangels, demonic humans with a cannibalistic lust forflesh, a mammoth insect swarms and other ominous symbols of Revelationappear in this old school, souped-up, R-rated, gunfire meets fantasysm?rg?sbord. The self-sacrificing Archangel Michael slices off his ownwings for the occasion and opposes a dutiful Gabriel to protect anunborn child and preserve humanity from utter extinction. According toour winged wonder, God wants to grease humanity for the second time.Basically, the Supreme Being can no longer tolerate our B.S. Mind you,this is a sanitized paraphrasing of the profane problem. Like theEgyptians in the Old Testament, God dispatches plagues, demons, andcannibals to polish off mankind. Non-religious audiences will crave thenoisy battle scenes with their fusillades of gun-fire. Most of theviolence staged outside against the aggressors resembles a first-personshooter video game. The adversaries hurl themselves futilely againstthe good guys in a hopeless frontal assault. Often, during lulls in theattacks as our appealing and clearly sympathetic characters let theirguns cool off, they discuss philosophical and moral issues.Nevertheless, "Legion" illustrates the dictum that the meek shallinherit the earth. Stewart and his scenarist Peter Schink refrain fromproselytizing.
