Legion

by Prashant Kumar Sharma

Legion movie  reviewi saw this comment somewhere and it was exactly how i would have, so here goes:

I wanted to like this film, the only problem was it had very large shoes to fill. The two films that comes to mind, are “Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight” with Billy Zane which tackled the whole “end of the world/standoff in diner/lone hero fighting alongside the little guys against a legion of bad guys” thing 10 times better and “The Prophecy” with Christopher Walken which tackled the whole “good angel versus bad angel/showdown on earth” thing 10 times better. Both came out in 1995 and while they didn’t have the special effects that this one had, they had a cohesive story, GREAT acting and believable characters.

The first hour or so is pretty good. The last 30 minutes is a rushed, hatchet job that will make you regret seeing this film.

my rating: 6/10
