Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel: God's given up on the human race and plans to wipe it out. Again. Read more

A.O. Scott, At the Movies: There's a lot going on, a lot of theology, a lot of bad horror movie effects. Read more

Mike Hale, 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. Read more

Tasha Robinson, AV Club: A cartoonishly grim supernatural thriller that could stand a lot less talk and a lot more thrills. Read more

Robert Abele, 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. Read more

Cliff Doerksen, Chicago Reader: This feature debut by writer-director Scott Stewart may sound like an enjoyably goofy theo-horror romp, but it's a serious penance. Read more

Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly: Alas, after a brisk start, the script turns out to be a rough and humorless beast slouching its way towards utter ludicrousness. Read more

Elizabeth Weitzman, 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. Read more
