LE­GION (2009) GO!, 9.30PM, AV15+, FAN­TASY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

A rol­lick­ing, re­li­gious-themed su­per­nat­u­ral thriller that boosts its rou­tine end-ofthe-world plot­line with some crafty di­a­logue, en­er­getic di­rec­tion and solid act­ing across the board. At a re­mote diner in the mid­dle of the New Mex­ico desert, an enig­matic, deadly se­ri­ous stranger (Paul Bet­tany) ar­rives with a cache of weapons to warn the un­lucky souls trapped there a world­wide apoc­a­lypse is in full swing. Af­ter re­veal­ing he’s ac­tu­ally a fallen ar­changel cast out af­ter de­fy­ing God, he also lets it be known the key to sav­ing hu­man­ity lies in the con­tin­ued sur­vival of the un­born child of a wait­ress (Adri­anne Pal­icki) trapped there. Le­gion moves at a crack­ing pace, never paus­ing to let view­ers re­alise how silly the whole premise is. ★★✩
