HORROR MOVIES ARE SECOND ONLY to ROM-COMs as the GENRE with the MOST DISAPPOINTING TITLES in the LAST FEW YEARS. AND SONY/COLUMBIA's http://www.razzies.com/forum/legion_forum410.html -  ISN'T LIKELY to ALLEVIATE the PROBLEM. 
 
ANOTHER GOD-IS-ABOUT-to-END-the-WORLD APOCALYPTIC-PILE-o-CRAP, LEGION FEATURES http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejJvnZm7UOY - WHO SWEETLY SEZ: "It'll all be over soon!" THEN the SATANIC GRANNY CRAWLS ACROSS a DINER CIELING LIKE an ANGRY CACA-ROACH. DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT EVERY TIME WE SAW THAT IMAGE, WE JUST ABOUT BUSTED a GUT LAUGHING!
 
AND WE'RE FAIRLY CERTAIN LAUGHTER ISN'T WHAT THIS FILM's MAKERS WERE AFTER. THOUGH with the SORRY STATE of SUPPOSEDLY SCARY MOVIES THESE DAZE, SCREAMS of LAUGHTER MAY BE ALL THEY CAN HOPE FOR...
 
 
This is one horror movie that's...dare we say it? 
JAW-DROPPINGLY AWFUL!

First One Missed Call, then The Unborn, then Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, now this. Legion sounds like another horror movie that would give its viewers brain lesions. This is why I hate movie theatres in Januaries. At least those in the northern half of the US have no reason to trudge through all those blizzards...

Hey, the way I see it, the more crappy movies that come out this month, the more money "Avatar" will make!

Seems that studios usually dump their crap on cinemas in January and February. By the way, I'm not going to see this movie because of the sole fact that in it a modern woman is pregnant with the Messiah, which is outright blasphemy (and ridiculous!) in my terms. One Messiah was enough, and I'm not afraid to confess my faith in him. It was God's will that He died on that cross, and placed all the sins of the world, including future sins, on Himself so that we would be forgiven.
 
But a movie featuring a woman with child carrying the Messiah? COME ON!!! Don't torture my religion of Christianity.

Do you think I was young enough to grow up watching Smurfs, Thundercats, and reruns of shows like A-Team and Dukes of Hazzard, and Alvin and the Chipmunks?

Sorry, Sam, but H-Wood is going to "torture" your religion whether you want them to or not, because they actually think it suckers Christians into seeing their "faith-based" movies. So prove them wrong -- and don't go to see this!

And they call those shapeshifting monsters "angels"?  They should be called something else.  The only real angels in this film are the ones protecting the pregnant woman.  The story is complicated, the premise is weird and the concept is unfamiliar:  God loses faith in humanity...he sends shapeshifting beasts to slaughter the humans...one woman is said to be carrying the Second Coming of Jesus.  There's a prophecy that precedes all that, but why does God lose faith in humanity?  Does he lose faith because humans are polluting the environment?  Does he lose faith because humans are committing too many sins and crimes?  Does he lose faith because humans keep voting Twilight over everything else?  Someone has to explain what caused this holocaust, or else audiences won't have any idea why all this is happening!  
 
RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I think I'd have to go with the "humans keep voting TWILIGHT over everything else" theory. But come RAZZIE® Nominations day (February 1) all those fans of hunky, empty-headed vampires and werewolves may be in for a suprise...or maybe several!

Last year was the year of vampires. I heard this year would be the year of angels. I'm not lying. I'm going to try to find out if this is true.

Let's see, this is the second movie within a two week time frame to have religious figures or themes, "The Book of Eli" being the other. It seems H-Wood is trying to cash in on the biggest of franchises with a very devoted, built-in fan base: organized religion.

...Realizing, of course, that the phrase "organized religion" is an oxymoron.Wink

Honestly, I didn't get anything about her carrying "The Messiah" all I got was that the plot was carrying a Mess-a crap. I suppose part of the problem might have been the idiots in the theater who were apparently trying to converse with the characters on screen, and had to loudly repeat any line they found even remotely humorous....
 
There are just some people who should NEVER EVER go to the theater, because the bastards just make it completely impossible to lose yourself in a crappy movie...
 
Even though I got no impression of a Messiah involved, I would recomend avoiding this movie, unless your significant other is promising you some major payback after... Even then, It better be some damn good payback...

From what I have read, this movie has plot holes so big that you can hide "Transformers 2"'s plot holes in them.

I understand what you're saying, but the Bible says Jesus will be coming back, and there will be a second coming. I enjoy movies on a cinematic level - if this were a quality movie, I would want to see it. There are lots of things that happen in movies that I don't agree with, or don't believe in (such as murder), but I don't let this affect how much I enjoy the movie, or what I believe in. If I barricade myself from what happens in the real world, without seeing it for what it is, then I remain ignorant and farther from God.

Yeah, they really marketed the hell out of this one.
 
Yet another pregnant woman -whether pregant with the next savior or anti-savior - and a huge celestral battle over her and the fate of her child.
 
Yawn.
 
As for God losing faith in humanity, I found the line in Romero's Day of the Dead far more chilling: that God started up the zombie apocolypse because He wanted to show Man "what Hate looked like". As scary as that might be, I find the concept flawed. If and when a diety decides to wipe the slate of sentient life on his world clean, I doubt he/she/it would use so inefficient a method as zombies, "angels", whatever.
 
Frankly, the only horror movie with a religious premise that scared me - and continues to scare me to this day - was the Exorcist.

You want a good religion based movie? See Kevin Smith's "Dogma". Or, even better, Bill Maher's "Religulous". Now that's a faith centered movie to sink your teeth into.

Yeah, but they're not horror movies. Although some might pay to see a pregnant Maher.
 
. . . .I wouldn't. Some things truly are too horrible to contemplate. I still have nightmares when Awnold did it.

Two outstanding films, although I really wish someone would construct a contract with Kevin Smith that doesn't pay him by the number of times one of his characters drops an "f" bomb

This is all a plot to scare the hell out of people so that someone can make a sequel to 2012 (I like to call it "2013: Electric Boogaloo") to scare the Jesus into folks by saying "blue aliens, vampires, pissed as sh*t aliens and Jack Black are coming to end your very existence come 12/22/12! REPENT! REPENT!"

Just saw this movie... Jesus Christ what a sh*thole movie, bad acting, bad special effects, bad action scenes, and a stupid plot. It's a shame January Releases tend to be forgotten by award season, cause this one should be a top contender in multiple categories.
