I saw the preview for this movie over the weekend. The official site for the movie states the plot as the following “When God loses faith in mankind, He sends his legion of Angels to bring the Apolcalypse. Humanities only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a desert diner and thr Archangel Michael.”
Legion is literally the name of demonic entity that’s responsible for the occult book “A Course in Miracles”. Legion is name of the same demon Jesus cast out in the Gospels. Sharon Lee Giganti, who is a frequent guest on Catholic Answers, mentions this in her stuff… I fact-checked it when I heard about it, and sure enough, it checks out… “We are Legion, for we are many.” (Mk 5:9, Luke 8:30)
I have no doubt the movie “Legion” will be as benign and forgettable as “Constantine” was (that movie was a hoot)…that it’s being released in January should be a big heads-up about that (awful moves are ALWAYS released in January)… but the real, literal Legion is not benign at all.
thanks for posting this, i saw the trailer two months back, its about St Michele the archangel going against God trying to protect baby Jesus (not yet born) against an Armageddon inflicted by Gods angles. Obviously there taking christian teaching and twisting it to make a quick buck, such a shame.
I saw the trailer as well, it looked like a warmed-over version of Constantine. I really don’t have any issue with these types of movies as long as they are understood to be entertainment and not theology. Then again, I won’t be going to see it either.
Like “City of Angels” and “The Crow,” “Constantine” took an interesting premise and fell way short. (I have to admit, there were a couple scenes that had me chuckling, though, like the holy water in the sprinkler system raining down on the demons in the hospital.)
But this movie appears to be blasphemous, stupid, and just all-around bad. I wouldn’t even watch it for a laugh.
I was planning on watching the movie myself. I’ve been threatening my sister-in-law saying that i would take her. She saw that wall crawling granny and said “never!” She cant stand movies with anything scary
