    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Even if you overlook the lousy lighting, awkward editing, and uneven acting, there's so much talking -- and so little story -- that your mind is likely to wander. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    The film has enough entertaining action and sly humor to please its target audience. show more

    Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel

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

    Keith Uhlich Time Out New York

    Often resembles a prime John Carpenter thriller--call it "Assault on Manger 13"--until an overcaffeinated angel-fu climax significantly lowers the intelligence quotient. show more

    Pete Hammond Boxoffice Magazine

    Essentially a B-movie dressed up with A-level special effects, Legion looks spiffy but sounds bad with a lot of overwritten dialogue scenes and predictable action. show more

    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. show more

    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. show more

    Entertainment Weekly

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

    Joe Leydon Variety

    Even when the blood-and-thunder hokiness of the over-the-top plot tilts perilously close to absurdity, the admirably straight-faced performances by well-cast lead players provide just enough counterbalance to sustain audience curiosity and sympathy. show more

    Village Voice

    This wan rebooting of the Christ tale has decent acting, serviceable if familiar visual effects, a few jump-in-your-seat moments, and the always crowd-pleasing gimmick of a senior citizen cussing up a storm. But the down time between action scenes is deadly dull and the film's hoary cinematic shorthand (i.e., a young Black man enters the film to the sound of hip-hop and fights with his baby mama) is more terrifying than anything else served up. show more

    if it wasn't for the good popcorn and drink this would have been a total waste....i m confused....was this movie made to sell the good popcorn? because to me it has no other value or purpose...its a pointless creation like spitting on the curb

    This movie was extrmely pointless.. It's like they were just tying to make a movie with angels and that's as far as the plot went... absolute biggest waste of my time...

    We enjoyed the movie but my 19 year old son and I agreed it is way to short to spend that kind of money.

    If you saw the walking Dead movies or any of those Zombi movies, this is ********* like. This is a really bad, cheaply made piece of crap.
