Scott Stewart's supernatural thriller Legion, scripted by Peter Schink, concerns a group of strangers in an out-of-the-way eatery who become the first line of defense when God, believing the human race is no longer worthy of Him, decides to end their existence. This motley crew's only spiritual ally is the archangel Michael, played by Paul Bettany. Dennis Quaid, Tyrese Gibson, Charles S. Dutton, and Lucas Black co-star in the Screen Gems production. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Celestial tosh of less than Biblical proportions."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"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."
‑ Ernest Hardy, Village Voice
"There are so many things that could have been done with this premise that the movie simply doesn't do. Doesn't even think of doing."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Patheos
"I really enjoyed this stupid movie."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"A few minutes shorter, and an ending that doesn't outright quote the beginning of the movie, and we might have had something here."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"[A] mediocre picture."
‑ Michael Phillips, At the Movies
"This feature debut by writer-director Scott Stewart may sound like an enjoyably goofy theo-horror romp, but it's a serious penance."
‑ Cliff Doerksen, Chicago Reader
"An utterly ludicrous entry in the biblical-horror subgenre."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Heaven help these fallen angels."
‑ Don Groves, sbs.com.au
"...a disappointingly uneven and thoroughly pointless horror effort..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"There's a lot going on, a lot of theology, a lot of bad horror movie effects."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"Often resembles a prime John Carpenter thriller -- call it Assault on Manger 13 -- until an overcaffeinated angel-fu climax significantly lowers the intelligence quotient."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"Why spend your money watching an extended trailer?"
‑ Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel, 3BlackChicks Review
"A bold faced rip off of the "Terminator" films..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
""It's a labored, darkly photographed, cringingly acted hodgepodge of fanciful geek-bait genre ideas and hideous connect-the-dots scripting. Who knew the end of the world could be such a screaming bore.""
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
