‘Legion’ Movie Gets Mediocre Reviews From Movie Critics

‘Legion’ movie gets mediocre reviews from movie critics. Screen Gems has released it’s latest supernatural/action movie creation, “Legion” to the theaters today. It stars: Paul Bettany, Dennis Quaid, Tyrese Gibson, Jon Tenney, Charles S. Dutton, Lucas Black, Kate Walsh, Doug Jones, Adrianne Palicki, Kevin Durand, and Willa Holland. It has gotten some pretty mediocre reviews from a couple of professional movie critics on the net. Some of them thought it was great,just ok,and then absolutely horrible. I think that the usual top critics in the biz were cut off from pre-screening the film. The studios do that sometimes,but these critics took the time to find a way to watch it and give a review.

IF Magazine gave it 4 and a half stars. They said, “The new film has some undeniably cool action sequences and a serious, soulful performance by Paul Bettany as an angel who wants to help humankind…..LEGION is lively enough….the action with Bettany is actually memorable…..The script and the cast also contribute some good character moments, particularly Dutton and Gibson.” Read more »
