A MOVIE THAT EVERYONE SHOULD SEE.
This is a very interesting movie, it is on the religious side but also as a believer that I am, it is nice to think that God hasn't completely given up on us (humanity. It's got enough scary stuff and action to keep you on the edge. Very interesting from start to end. I would really recommend it to anyone, except for little ones. Remainds some of the Prophesy with Cristopher Walken, but in a different light.

Legion (Blu-ray Disc, 2010)
An out-of-the-way diner becomes the unlikely battleground for the survival of the human race. When God loses faith in humankind, he sends his legion of angels to bring on the Apocalypse. Humanity's only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a desert diner with the Archangel Michael.
I actually enjoyed this movie and felt it stayed to its advertised plot of good vs. evil and the "end of time" premise. The action wasn't in abundance but was great when shown. Don't expect action and death every second of this movie, because it's not.

Clearly Hollywood Has Run Out Of Good Story Material.
Upon viewing this film the first time around, I'm sorry I fell asleep. It just didn't spark my inner interests even though it supposedly had angelic origins.
In mulling over in my mind about this film, I really almost didn't get it, although, after a while, I finally got what the director and co-screen-writer was trying to do. It goes something like this. We are soon introduced to a bunch of normal average everyday losers from all walks of life who somehow become totally stranded in the middle of nowhere during the coming of GOD's final judgment. We soon learn that all the common annoyances we normally go through in this world are just as boring and typical as our worst Thanksgiving dinner with our dysfunctional families (analogous to, no pun intended, devils in hell want ice-water). The Paradise Diner is almost like a microcosm of pond scum we all love to try & get out of, mainly speaking. It almost reminds me of where old actors go after they have a couple of decades of wonderful roles and then get caught in a down turn, much like what happened to Michael Gross's popularity when he went from "Family Matters" all the way down to a 2nd or 3rd billed actor in Tremors (1990 with Kevin Bacon). As a matter of fact, if you could just subtract the Angels and add the alligator worm creatures, I'd think this film would have done a bit better.
I think what really went wrong with this was when they made the story-line centered around GOD's wrath and Angels. Actually I checked out the ratings on IMDB.COM (Internet Movie Database), and with only 3,100 votes Tremors 4 (2004) actually beat out this film receiving only a 5 out of 10 by 0.3 of a point. The actual voting for Legion was 9 times the number, so that's almost the curse of death for a movie to receive that low of a ranking with so many votes. That also says alot about Michael Gross's acting. Great job Michael, although, I got tired of the Tremor films at about number 2.
What chokes this film is only a couple of really noticeable mistakes:
1) After Percy gets bathed in acid, there is a shot where you can clearly see that his back is intact, but after that he falls revealing his shirtless back completely acid burnt with flesh eaten away to the spine.
2) Why would we really care at all if the characters were really ragging themselves at all (Jeep) about freezing up & not shooting the old lady?
3) After spending hours of planning with over 20 major stunt drivers, the direction failed to take full advantage of the 18-wheeler with pipes on the back. In my opinion, by not getting the pipes to dump was a budgetary constraint that caused the action in the film to be a tiny bit stale and ineffective.
4) The audio was extremely low in places, thus ruining much of the important lines that would have been much more effective had they not been trying to play on any kind of emotional tear-jerking reactions.
There were one or two good lines that gave the film much needed value, and it came mostly from Percy Walker coming from Charles S. Dutton. The first was when he told about what his father used to tell him before he went to bed at night. He said, "If it's your last day on this planet, would you be proud of what you've done in this life?" The other line is only from memory, however it was something about that he didn't know were Michael was getting his information, but that it definitely was not from the same book he knew. I'll have to applaud those lines. The rest were way too "Barbie".Read full review

Not Worth Buying. Watch on Amazon or Netflix. Save your Money!!
Not worth buying. Watch on Amazon or Netflix!! The whole movie basically takes place at a diner. And has limited special effects and the story just isn't that interesting..
