A tale of two halves., 15 February 2004
Author: fibreoptic from England

Legion of The Dead is split into two parts like 'From Dusk Till Dawn'. The first half focuses mainly on William and Luke getting kidnapped by psycho Mike and two legion members recruiting people in to the legion of the dead. The Second half focuses on a group of people trying to escape a diner surrounded by Togaio and the legion of the dead. The first half is pretty good and enthralling making you think that this is going to be surprisingly a good film but uh oh wait a second there...the second half spoils it completely! And because the second half makes little to no sense the first half is there in turn wasted. Togaio waves his arms about far too much (the actor must of thought "WOH i'm playing Satan, better act the part" and over acts the part). The humour is pretty much non-existent in the second half too which is one of the main bits that made the first half good. The film makers obviously tried to do a "From Dusk Till Dawn" movie and failed miserably. Worth renting but do not buy this movie as it's hard enough watching it all the way through the first time! It's a shame because done right this movie could have been a winner. 5/10
