At the Movies:
There's a lot going on, a lot of theology, a lot of bad horror movie effects.
New York Times:
There are no orgies of planetary destruction; the action almost never leaves the diner, which may be just as well, since a short scene in heaven looks as if it were filmed on the set of a community college Shakespeare production.
A cartoonishly grim supernatural thriller that could stand a lot less talk and a lot more thrills.
Los Angeles Times:
Legion may traffic in signposts of the apocalypse, but the whole affair mostly indicates that we're in the movie wasteland that is January.
This feature debut by writer-director Scott Stewart may sound like an enjoyably goofy theo-horror romp, but it's a serious penance.
Alas, after a brisk start, the script turns out to be a rough and humorless beast slouching its way towards utter ludicrousness.
New York Daily News:
Even if you overlook the lousy lighting, awkward editing, and uneven acting, there's so much talking -- and so little story -- that your mind is likely to wander.
A dramatically muddled but surprisingly involving Bible-themed fantasy thriller...
The down time between action scenes is deadly dull and the film's hoary cinematic shorthand (i.e., a young Black man enters the film to the sound of hip-hop and fights with his baby mama) is more terrifying than anything else served up.
