Movie Summary

Director:
Scott Stewart
Released:
2010
Rating:
R

Legion is an apocalyptic horror film directed by Scott Stewart that centers on a roadside diner as it becomes the focal point of humanity's last stand. The roadside diner wasn't much to write home about. It suited the needs of the Mojave Desert residents, offering a paycheck to the owner, alcoholic Bob Hanson (Dennis Quaid), his dreamer son Jeep (Lucas Black), his religious cook Percy (Charles S. Dutton), and the pessimistic and heavily pregnant waitress, Charlie (Adrianne Palicki), as well as a respite for travelers Kyle (Tyrese Gibson), Howard and Sandra Anderson (Jon Tenney and Kate Walsh) and their daughter Audrey (Willa Holland). When the radios, phones, and TVs go on the fritz as a black cloud heads their way, the diner's status quo is changed with the arrival of not only their first demonic visitor in the guise of a possessed old woman but the former Archangel Michael (Paul Bettany). With the help of Michael and his dedication to Charlie's unborn child, the occupants face off against their inner demons as well as the ones knocking on their door.

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

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