More Info:
  • Frank Scheck

    The film has enough entertaining action and sly humor to please its target audience.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Often resembles a prime John Carpenter thriller--call it "Assault on Manger 13"--until an overcaffeinated angel-fu climax significantly lowers the intelligence quotient.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Joe Leydon

    Even when the blood-and-thunder hokiness of the over-the-top plot tilts perilously close to absurdity, the admirably straight-faced performances by well-cast lead players provide just enough counterbalance to sustain audience curiosity and sympathy.

    Variety Full Review
  • Clark Collis

    After a brisk start, the script turns out to be a rough and humorless beast slouching its way towards utter ludicrousness.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Even if you overlook the lousy lighting, awkward editing, and uneven acting, there's so much talking -- and so little story -- that your mind is likely to wander.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    Essentially a B-movie dressed up with A-level special effects, Legion looks spiffy but sounds bad with a lot of overwritten dialogue scenes and predictable action.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Ernest Hardy

    This wan rebooting of the Christ tale has decent acting, serviceable if familiar visual effects, a few jump-in-your-seat moments, and the always crowd-pleasing gimmick of a senior citizen cussing up a storm. But 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.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    The leaden dialogue and flat-footed storytelling hobble a talented cast.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    A cartoonishly grim supernatural thriller that could stand a lot less talk and a lot more thrills.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Legion may traffic in signposts of the apocalypse, but the whole affair mostly indicates that we're in the movie wasteland that is January.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Cliff Doerksen

    This feature debut by writer-director Scott Stewart may sound like an enjoyably goofy theo-horror romp, but it's a serious penance.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Profane, profanely silly and blasphemous to beat the band, Legion begins well before plunging into the abyss of tedium.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    Could have been T2 with seraphs, or Assault On Precinct 13 crossed with Revelations. Instead, it’s a lazy genre bore. Doesn’t bode well for Priest, the next Stewart/Bettany film in the pipeline.

    Empire Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    As for Legion, well, if you've seen one plague of flies and death and angels at war with each other, you've seen 'em all.
