Just saw "Legion"

Ok movie. I'd give it a 6.5/10. IMO, lots of potential they just failed to execute. As an aside, I'm now very frightened by old people and small children.

That old lady looks creepy!
The scariest stuff to me is what you don't expect.
Like Bilbo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings going psycho for the ring. Made me spill my drink.

I was pretty disappointed with that movie. It looked a lot better in the previews in my opinion...

I agree that it had potentials yet simply didn't capture all of them. Those CG scenes don't scare me at all because they were so fake. For example: if they made the scene where the old lady climbed the wall slower or a bit weirder it would have worked. When I first saw the preview in the theaters I couldn't wait to go see it. After seeing the trailer lately I'm not going to waste my money.

Not worth wasting your money. Catch it on netflix. Very interesting story line take in retrospect, however.

they could've give it so much more substance and made a great movie out of it. Great concept from a religous standpoint, but the lacking storyline and details hurt the entertainment factor Never really explained why the chosen one was chosen as the savior and no history of the supporting and main characters. Seemed like a movie rushed through production.

Hmm, I might do that instead. That old lady in the movie trailer scared the shit out of me. Maybe not seeing the trailer at 2am with no lights on in my room didn't help it either.

Kinda like Paranormal Activity (which sucked IMO). I hate it when they do that. Guess I'll add Legion to my Netflix whenever its available.
