Synopsis: The earth is set for destruction when God loses faith in mankind and sends His legion of angels to bring the Apocalypse. But one angel, the Archangel Michael, still believing that mankind can be good rebels against God.
In this supernatural action thriller Legion, an out-of-the-way diner becomes the unlikely battleground for the survival of the human race. Humanity’s only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a desert Inn, and the Archangel Michael.
Consensus: It has its thrilling moments, and the star cast marks it for a good movie. The graphics are good, the scenery and setting are ok, but there is too much in terms of conflicting ideas and concepts for the viewer to take in. Like the idea of Angels using guns!
And why God seems to have such a hard time getting rid of a small bunch of people in a diner, kind of questions God’s power. There is also that unborn child who everyone is striving hard to save…. Who is he supposed to be?
The movie is strangely slow paced, the plot is confusing and disturbing, and has too much dialogue. The concept of the Arch Angel Michael rebelling against God is offensive, not something Christians would want to see toyed with, even in a fiction movie. For all the fuss about it, is not a good movie. I don’t like it.
