Goofs

When the guards attempt to confiscate Aldrich's cigarettes in the execution chamber the guard to Aldrich's right is wearing a balaclava which covers his mouth. When the camera cuts back the guard to Aldrich's right is wearing a ski mask that covers his whole face except for his eyes and mouth. There's no indication that Aldrich turned to face the other guard around since the entry door is still behind his left shoulder. See more »

Dirty Dozen + Aliens + a good helping of suck = Legion
20 January 2004 | by (Washington State, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is decent only because it so faithfully rips off a couple of very good movies. Basically, you have a group of American commandos, made up from death row inmates, who are going on a suicide mission under the leadership of a tough-as-nails officer. Sound familiar? That's because it is. The resemblance to 'The Dirty Dozen' is shamefully apparent--it even has many of the same characters, albeit some have undergone a sex change. There's a religious fanatic who continuously quotes scripture. There's the one guy who was condemned for something that really isn't wrong at all, making it okay for him to survive to the end. And of course, since the rest of the group are murders, rapists, and deserters, you know they have to pay their debt to society as the monster picks 'em off one by one.

But back to the story. Once this commando team is formed, they head to an enemy (we never find out who the US is fighting) planet, there to secure a fueling station that is apparently vital to the war effort. Once they get there, they find no enemies about, and a bunch of dead Americans piled up in a room of some kind. No sign of what brutally slaughtered them. Here is where the film begins channeling 'Aliens'--some scenes (and lines) are literally ripped from that movie, which is to 'Legion' as Albert Einstein is to a three-year-old child. All the tension comes from betting who will die next (my brother and I made quite a game of this, and I made a pretty penny, I don't mind telling you). The commandos die one by one until the climactic battle between man and beast.

The cast is decent, headed by Terry Farrell, the former DS9 hottie, and some dude I've never heard of. They do a good job of delivering lines from a script that ought to have been taken out and shot alongside its writer.

Still, 'Legion' is fun if you're a fan of B-movies. The monster is... uh, interesting-looking, though it only appears for about two minutes in the movie. The end has a "surprise" twist, but most people will figure it out within the first half-hour. I'd suggest this movie to fans of Terry Farrell--actually, I'd suggest 'Back to School,' but who's asking?:)--or to people who would like to see 'The Dirty Dozen' and 'Aliens' but just don't have enough time in the day.

If you do have enough time to watch both, do so, and pass this one by.
