Evil granny, angels, relentless shooting, explosions, big guns, explosions, apocalypse, and even more explosions, this is the kind of film I like.
A dusty diner in the Mojave Desert becomes ground zero for earth?s final showdown in Legion, a startlingly original and terrifying vision of the Apocalypse from director and writer Scott Stewart (Priest). As mankind destroys itself in a savage fury, a small group of people trapped on the edge of nowhere prepare to make a last stand?with the help of a mysterious and powerful stranger.
Unaware of the chaos unfolding around the globe, Bob Hanson (Dennis Quaid), the owner of a remote roadside caf?, and his partner Percy (Charles S. Dutton) go about business as usual. The restaurant?s beautiful and very pregnant waitress, Charlie (Adrianne Palicki), serves breakfast to Sandra and Howard, a well-heeled suburban couple (Kate Walsh and Jon Tenney) and their teenage daughter Audrey (Willa Holland), as they wait for their car to be repaired by Bob?s son, Jeep (Lucas Black).
When the television goes on the fritz and the phones go out, the group realizes they have lost all communication with the outside world. As they attempt to make sense of what?s happening?An earthquake? A terrorist attack?? an elderly woman (Jeannette Miller) arrives and sweetly orders a steak from Charlie. When her meal arrives, she begins spewing shocking obscenities. In a heartbeat, the fragile old lady develops superhuman strength, launching a grisly attack that leaves Howard critically injured.
A desperate attempt to get medical help ends when an impenetrable cloud of flying insects turns the diner into the only safe haven for miles. As the horrifying truth of their situation sinks in, a stranger (Paul Bettany) joins them with an arsenal of stolen weapons. He informs Charlie that her unborn baby is now humanity?s only hope, and he?s willing to do whatever it takes to save it.
The world is about to become a waking nightmare for the last remnants of mankind as rolling caravans of crazed killers arrive in search of fresh victims and an army of warrior angels bent on total destruction follows close behind them in a unique and terrifying glimpse of the End of Days.
Actors In Legion
Legion stars Paul Bettany (The Da Vinci Code), Lucas Black (Slingblade), Tyrese Gibson (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Adrianne Palicki (?Friday Night Lights?), Charles S. Dutton (Fame), Jon Tenney (?The Closer?), Kevin Durand (Wolverine), Willa Holland (?The O.C.?), Kate Walsh (?Grey?s Anatomy?) and Dennis Quaid (G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra). ?The film is directed by Scott Stewart from a screenplay by Peter Schink (Gotham Caf?) and Stewart.
Released Friday 5th March, Legion starring Paul Bettany is the super-natural thriller that gives us a little taster of what will happen when God finally decides enough is enough, and that the human race has got to go (again?).
In a modern take of Noah?s fabled flood, God sends down a Legion of Angels with an excellent amount of weaponry to take out anyone they come across, which most do with a surprising vigor for angelic folk. Only one ? Archangel Michael ? is reluctant, and travels to a small diner in the middle of nowhere to protect the unborn child who turns out to be the only salvation for human kind.
We are taking a look at the children in film who have the potential to change the world, for good or for evil, and the forces that are in place to protect them.
The child: As yet unborn, the whole of God?s task force are out to get said baby; armed to the teeth and pumped for a fight these angels will stop at nothing until this hope for the human race is exterminated.
Forces of good protection rating: **? ? with only a single de-winged angel and a task force of relatively useless people in a diner in the middle of nowhere, with limited ammunition and less courage, the odds for the diner crew winning out seem slim. You?ll have to see the film to see how this one turns out!
The Exorcist, 1973
The child: Regan MacNiel is just an ordinary 12-year-old girl dealing with her parents? divorce, until she becomes possessed by the demon Pazuzu. Killing her babysitter, a priest and performing some genuinely disturbing feats during her period of being possessed, Regan?s pretty much as bad as it can be in child evilness terms.
Forces of Evil protection rating: 1/10 – Other than simply being Pazuzu there are no other helpful demons on hand to wreak vengeful havoc. This means that when Father Karras sneakily gets the demon to posses him instead of Regan, the poor sod can do nothing but die when the good Father plunges to his death.
The Terminator, 1984
The child: Sarah Connor?s child-to-be, John, will one day be the leader of the Human Resistance against Skynet and their army of machines. While John doesn?t feature at all in the first film, Arnie is on a mission to prevent his ever coming into being and it is up to Kyle (Michael Biehn) to warn Sarah about the grave threat to her future progeny.
Forces of good protection rating: 8/10 ? Willing to die for the cause Kyle does a stellar job; not only does he save Sarah from The Terminator, he also provides a vital ingredient for John?s conception.
Rosemary?s Baby, 1968
The child: What with all the craving of raw meat, severe pains and other worrying developments during her pregnancy it?s easy to guess that something is not quite right with Rosemary?s baby. However, it?s not until the end of this disturbing 1968 classic that we find out that Rosemary?s child, Adrian, is actually the son of Satan.
Forces of Evil protection rating: 9/10 ? As the spawn of the devil it?s a pretty safe bet that Adrian will have a pretty impressive security force going on. Protected at the end of the film by an evil coven of witches, and with Rosemary helpless to do anything other than watch on, we feel pretty safe saying that Adrian will have a long career in evil ahead.
The Golden Child, 1986
The child: A Tibetan with talents unknown, The Golden Child (who never seems to get a real name ? maybe it would devalue the film if he was called Jim?) is billed as the saviour of all man kind. He?s got some great gifts, such as being able to revive the dead, and is wanted by evil demon Sardo Numspa.
Forces of good protection rating: 6/10 – When the monks let themselves down by letting The Golden Child fall into the clutches of an evil demon, all seems to be lost. Luckily Eddie Murphy is on hand to combine comedy with some kick-ass action, only letting himself down when his girlfriend is killed and he has to rely on the magic of The Golden Child to save the day.
The Omen, 1976 / 2006
The child: Damien Thorn was born on at 6am on the 6th June: He is the Antichrist. Determined to kill anyone who could get in his way, a series of ?accidents? to those around him alert his adoptive father to the fact that all is not as it seems with Damien, and that he must be stopped.
Forces of Evil protection rating: 10/10 ? With ancient myth and a bad Nanny on his side, it looks as though Damien needs no other aid to further his cause for wickedness: Evil through and through, Damien is an unstoppable force.
Children of Men, 2006
The child: In 2027 no children have been born anywhere in the world for 18 years, yet Kee (an illegal African immigrant) is pregnant. Representing the only hope for human kind, Kee?s child is the single force that can unite humanity for good.
Forces of good protection rating: 6/10 ? With only Clive Owen to protect them, Kee and her child?s chances for survival look slim. Managing to scrape through numerous dangerous scenarios and remain alive, the day is eventually saved when the child?s mewling astounds combatants into putting down their guns to give Kee and child free passage to their destination.
Pandorum is a scifi movie starring Eddie Rouse, Dennis Quaid, Cung Le, Norman Reedus and Ben Foster. The cast is good, the special effects are excellent and the story is good, so why do I feel short changed after seeing the film.
The story follows the awakening of crew members from hypersleep and their disorientation is met with mutants. It is a case of fighting for their lives as they try to remember who they are and what their mission is. To get a flavour of what the film is aiming for you should see Event Horison and Sunshine first. It is this sort of comparison that really puts this film into the shade.
This is one of those films that may have really spun you with the twisty ending – which stands well if not for the fact I personally had just about had enough of the film by the end. The dark corridors, mutants, combat sequences try to drag the viewer along instead of sweeping them along for the ride.
This would have been a much better film with a slight shift of focus. Maybe with a change of writer or director it may have been much better.
That said, worth a look. Just don’t expect too much.
From the creators of the Resident Evil film franchise comes Pandorum starring Dennis Quaid, Ben Foster, Antje Traue and Cung Le.
Scifind has an early peek of this movie, releases September, see the video below.

So what is Pandorum about?
Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a spacecraft. It’s pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the spacecraft. They can’t remember anything – who are they, what is their mission? The only way out of the chamber is a dark and narrow airshaft. Corporal Bower, the younger of the two, crawls inside, while the other, Lt. Payton, stays behind for guidance on a radio transmitter. As Bower ventures deeper and deeper into the ship, he discovers that he and Payton are not alone. Slowly the spacecraft’s shocking and deadly secrets come unravelled, and the astronauts realize that the survival of mankind hinges on their actions.
