Legion Trailer

I saw this huge poster at Comic-Con and now I’ve just seen the trailer. Taking Paul Bettany as an action hero is asking a bit much, especially when you make him an angel and give him guns. The premise of the story is that God has given up on humanity and the archangel Michael, played by Bettany stands between us and the apocalypse. There’s also something about a small town waitress who just might be pregnant with the baby Jesus. Oh boy. There’s so many things wrong with that sentence, and it looks to take itself far too seriously. For my money, the low budget Aussie flick Gabriel explored similar themes with a greater visual style and meaning. Legion opens January 22.
