I don’t have high hopes for the quality of this film, but I’d like to see some action thriller flick that does not involve robots and inter-galactic battles for a change. Judging by the comments on Youtube, however, this film will incite inter-galactic flame wars among the religious, non-believers, and those who are only there to enjoy a good flick, dogma notwithstanding. Legion of course smells of Constantine (which I enjoyed watching in spite of Keanu Reeves) although it is set in some remote small-town with small-town folks fighting off legions of angels instead of half-breeds with only their guns and archangel Michael.

Moreover, I’d like to see a movie that has Paul Bettany in it as a main character. I think this guy is one of the most talented but very under-appreciated actors in Hollywood. I liked him as that doctor in Master and Commander, the tennis pro in Wimbledon (even enjoyed it!), and as the freaky albino Silas in The Da Vinci Code. However, his character in Legion will have worked better for me if the make-up team left his hair alone. In an attempt to make him edgy, they forgot that he was playing an angel for which his super white super blond looks should have been perfect.
