Product Description

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).

Amazon.com

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

This movie has great special effects and is well acted.
J. Schaller
The unborn baby is there and it's up to these humans and Michael to destroy the people who have been possessed by God's angels.
MasterAP
In fact, I really don't want to give this movie review much of my time it was that bad.

God has lost faith in humanity, something that hasn't happened since the days of Noah. But instead of a flood, He has sent down a legion of angels, who possess the bodies of weak-minded people, turning them into ... certainly not demons, but then again, there's nothing angelic about these people, so maybe there's no other way to describe them. Anyway, it seems the only one who has kept the faith is the archangel Michael (Paul Bettany), who directly disobeys God by protecting what he was sent to destroy: A pregnant young waitress named Charlie (Adrianne Palicki), whose child was prophesized to be humanity's salvation. Upon finding her in a middle-of-nowhere New Mexico diner - named, appropriately, Paradise Falls - Michael leads a stranded group of strangers in an apocalyptic battle against the angels, who descend in droves.

What I find fascinating is that, for a film that comes across as nothing more than a violent, gory supernatural thriller, "Legion" tells a thoroughly absorbing story, one that, oddly enough, sends a message more hopeful and satisfying than the one sent by the duplicitous "The Book of Eli." I suspect few will latch onto this, since more time is spent on bloody shootouts and cornball dialogue; a basic shot consists of Bettany toting heavy artillery while someone over his shoulder swears loudly. Another basic shot shows a possessed person transforming hideously, and yes, this includes the overhyped scene of the old woman in the diner. And yet, in spite of all this, the subtexts are there, and there are moments of compelling character development.

LEGION is one of those movies you should probably hate, but I found myself liking it anyway. Paul Bettany plays a heaven-weary archangel Michael who disobeys God's orders to wipeout mankind. When archangel Gabriel steps in to punish him and carry out the order, all heaven breaks loose!
The film's setting in a desert cafe is the battleground and a small gathering joins in the battle.
Aforementioned plot holes aside, the movie uses its premise effectively with a good cast and visuals. Maybe hokey but fun!

I was never a fan of horror movies, but my husband has convinced me to watch a few, and I've really come to like certain ones. I now add LEGION to that special list. LEGION is a different kind of horror flick. Not much horror, not much gore, plenty of action, and a surprising amount of goodness and light. The general plot is that God has lost hope in mankind and has sent a plague of angels to wipe it out. But one of his archangels turns against him and comes to Earth to protect humanity. Archangel Michael still truly loves mankind, and will lay down his live to save us all. Despite this description, LEGION is not irreverent and not overly religious. But, I am not going to dwell on this aspect of LEGION, because the movie doesn't dwell on it.

I knew nothing about LEGION before we started, but as I watched it, it sure felt like a Stephen King novel: a group of strangers, stranded at an isolated diner, must fight off hordes of evil. And even though it is NOT based on a King novel, I was just as completely absorbed by LEGION's story.

I took a look at what the critics on Rotten Tomatoes had to say about LEGION, and they hated it. Loathed might be a better word. And I think most of the comments are justified, although some are just snobby. Is this a perfect movie? No. Are there clichés and genre cross-overs? Yes. Did I enjoy watching it? ABSOLUTELY. LEGION is definitely one of those films where the whole is much more than the sum of its parts.

I really enjoyed the movie, although it had a fair amount of gore. I thought it had a decent storyline and decent CGI. The acting by Paul Bettany was strong and is what actually held the movie together. He portrayed Archangel Michael. Dennis Quaid was really just a "name" filler. While Dennis had a part through most of the picture, it was only as background.

This was an apocalyptic film. The basic premise is that God is tired of the Earth humans trashing the Earth and each other with wars, killing, etc. God calls his army of angels together, led by Archangels Gabriel and Michael, and tells them to go down to Earth and kill us all. Gabriel orders Michael to kill the unborn baby of a certain girl, because this baby represents hope to mankind. Michael is torn between God's order and Michael's own love for mankind. Although many humans are not behaving as God wants, Michael still sees a few good and loving people who will not give up. So Michael decides he will give God what He NEEDS, not what He says He WANTS. Michael descends to protect the pregnant girl and ensure the baby is born.

The story begins with Michael leaping down to earth on December 23 at about 1 a.m.. Shortly after that, he cuts off his wings, grabs a whole bunch of guns and ammo. Confronted by 2 police officers, he tells them, "It's starting. There isn't much time." After a brief negative encounter, Michael heads off in the police car, which the officers no longer need. (What the heck???)

We switch to a scene in the California desert. There is nothing around for miles except a very simplistic diner, called "Paradise Falls" owned and operated by Dennis Quaid. His son works there too, as a handyman. A young girl also works there and lives in a small trailer on the premises.
