Legion

When god turns his/her (oh, it’s not worth getting into) back on humankind and sends a swarm of zombie-angels (Zangels?) to wipe it out, one man-angel-warrior (M-ang-orrior? played by Paul Bettany) takes matters into his own hands and bands with a renegade group of humans holed up in an isolated diner, fighting for their lives and for the entire human race. Legion says profound things about hope, but not in the way the film intends. It’s the kind of movie that you wish is a manic, goofy, memorable thrill ride (like Jason Statham’s oeuvre), but rarely is. Hope is the thing that gets movies like Legion made, as producers know that legions will show up looking for aimless wintertime thrills. This review was more fun to write than the movie was to watch. –Hillary Titley
