From Amazon.co.uk

As pure check-your-head-at-the-door popcorn entertainment, the apocalyptic action-horror hybrid Legion delivers in nearly every frame--its story of a band of strangers fighting an army of angels and demons for the fate of mankind is proudly loud, bullet riddled, and knee-deep in gore and CGI. That doesn't mean it's particularly good or even coherent--the story has renegade angel Michael (a glum Paul Bettany) come to the aid of diner owner Dennis Quaid (equally glum) and his patrons (a cross-section of stereotypes embodied by a capable cast, which includes Lucas Black, Charles S. Dutton, Tyrese Gibson, Kate Walsh, and Jon Tenney) as a host of heavenly and diabolical beings, dispatched by an angry God, descend on the diner with the intent of killing waitress Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights), whose unborn child may be the salvation of humanity. The orgy of special effects--endless hails of bullets and a menagerie of unpleasant demonic creatures, the most unsettling of which is the ice cream man (Doug Jones, Hellboy)--is eye popping but ultimately repetitive, and since no character rises above a cipher in director Scott Stewart's script (cowritten with Peter Schink), the whole affair feels unwieldy and eventually tiresome under a barrage of hackneyed dialogue. Naturally, Legion ends with the possibility of a sequel, though one wonders where the story can go after Armageddon. --Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars A cracking action film to munch popcorn to 17 Aug 2010
By meebee3
Format:DVD
I read all the negative reviews about this film then went and got it anyway.
The main plot is really about how the fate of humanity rests on one unborn baby belonging to a truckstop cafe waitress. One angel defies god to rescue the woman / baby and so well all "heaven" breaks loose.

Not much of a substantial plot but really thats not why we got the film. The action is straight in there, no messing about with plotlines about someones granny passing philosphy down or daddys dying that kind of thing. Its an action packed shoot em up a bit like old fashioned westerns where the good guys never run out of bullets. Paul is great as a p***d off angel. I found that fact it was all filmed in one cafe with just a few characters pretty good too.
A good couple of hours light entertainment where you dont have to think too hard

3.0 out of 5 stars Falls short 15 Mar 2010
By PJ Rankine TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
To enjoy this film you need to switch off your brain and ignore the storyline because that it where it falls down. No one gives a poor performance, Paul Bettany is good and has just the right amount of pathos to play a fallen angel and Dennis Quaid is his usual tortured self. The action scenes are good, the special effects stand up and its quite enjoyable overall, but the story? The tagline for this movie is 'When the last angel falls, the fight for mankind begins', okay, so Michael has fallen but who's the big guy called Gabriel who gives him a kicking at the end and all the winged creatures filling the sky, pigeons? The problem is that the scope of the story is just too big to be plausible. So God is ticked off with humanities failings and decides to take us all out but a baby is due to be born that will provide another chance. He sends the Archangel Michael to kill the baby but he rebels and is cast out so God assigns the task to Gabriel who instead of just winging in and taking out said baby gets tied up sending in hordes of possessed humans to do the job. Rumour has it that he fathered the last messiah so you would thing that he would get it right this time. There are clues in the plot that the rest of mankind are taking a beating but that isn't made prominent enough, cough and you'll miss it. And whilst we're at it what about the other fallen angel; Lucifer, wouldn't he have an interest. The story was done so well in 'The Prophecy' that adding an action movie to it just doesn't work that well. So to sum up, ignore the story, enjoy the action.

3.0 out of 5 stars A LET DOWN 15 Jun 2013
By BAZ316
Format:DVD
From the cover and the opening scenes this looks really impressive,it certainly looked like my kind of thing. Unfortunately it all goes down hill from there. In short,the basic story is some people in a truckstop diner are disturbed by an old lady,who is seemingly sweet but then turns nasty,saying offensive things and swearing,she is soon revealed to be a demon and it's not long before many more surround the diner. Along comes archangel Michale who tells the pregnant waitress her baby must be protected to save mankind,the end of the world is nigh and all that.
The battle sense are fun,there's some good gore,but for me it just falls flat too many times,becoming tiresome with the messages it clearly wants to get across. So the points it raises might be good,but it just isn't done in a style that grabbed me,i watched it right to the end but was left feeling disappointed. Many enjoyed this,fair enough,but as much as tried to get into this,i only found parts of it enjoyable.

By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
A group of strangers and employees come together at a 'Diner' in a remote area, they are joined by 'Michael' an 'Angel' who tells them that 'death' is coming.
'Micheal' (Paul Bettany) who, by offering to help the strangers is disobeying his master in doing so, he tells the small gathering that the object of the on-coming attack was to kill an unborn child being carried by a waitress at the 'diner'
'Micheal' also tells them that the child was destined to be mankind's saviour, all they have to do is stop the 'hoards' of mutants along with the 'Arc-Angel' 'Gabriel' (Kevin Durand) from doing as 'god' willed.
'Paul bettany' ( who seems to have taking this tyype of role quite often ) along with 'Dennis Quaid' (as Bob Hanson) lead the cast list in this action-packed fantasy/horror movie.(A Lot better than some critics gave it credit for)
i enjoyed the film and found it entertaining, i'm sure many of you will also like the film.
a decent 'blu-ray' presentation.

3.0 out of 5 stars watchable but that's about it. 23 Sep 2012
By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
By all accounts, this is a pretty mediocre film. The dialogue is pretty poor and the story pretty weak. However, it manages to remain fairly watchable throughout.

The best thing about this film are the special effects, with evil grannies and demon kids managing to add moments of interest in an otherwise fairly flat flick. There's really nothing more to add.

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Well it isn't exactly a masterpiece but it's not bad. Bought it for a fiver which for a blu-ray is cheap, picture is good as it should be for this format, and the soundtrack is also fine so i'm happy.
