Legion [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Legion [2010]

If you have seen the trailer for this movie, you do not need to see the rest of it. Practically every good scene, and by that I mean every good special effect, is seen in the trailer and the rest is just laughable. Starting with totally incoherent script, where god really does not care that much about anything (maybe he’s on antidepressants, or weed (that would be cool (if he existed))), so he lets angels and humans do whatever they like and what happens, happens. After that, character development is pretty laughable with standard thug black man, rebel teen and all the other one-dimensional characters.

Shotguns are the weapon of choice, and a couple of random humans will defend the gas station against the hordes of angels. I mean come on, they could have at least tried to make this plausible by putting more effort in the barricades and the organization. But, I guess, that all you have to do is to be present and everything will be fine. The overgrown chickens that are fighting in this flick somehow have bullet proof wings and their combat sequence is pretty short too. I do not want to go on, I will just say that the main guy is named Jeep. A fucking Jeep, ultimate redneck cataclysm, a teenage slut and a guy named Jeep are the only hope for humanity… Jesus Zombie Christ… Still you can enjoy trashing this movie as it goes, it will be especially funny if you imitate chickens during the fight sequences…

Director: Scott Stewart

Fun Stuff: The tattoos on Micheal (and later Jeep) are Enochian, a language supposedly of the angels as recorded by John Dee and his seer Edward Kelley in the late 16th century, which they claimed was revealed to them by angels.
