At a remote desert truck stop, the fate of the world will be decided. Evil's armies are amassing. Armed and united by the Archangel Michael (Paul Bettany), a group of strangers become unwitting soldiers on the frontlines of the Apocalypse. Their mission: protect a waitress and her sacred unborn child from the relentless, bloody siege of the demonic legion. Also starring Dennis Quaid (G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF THE COBRA, VANTAGE POINT), Tyrese Gibson (TRANSFORMERS) and Lucas Black (JARHEAD).
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

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
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.
'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.
