Variety
Even when the blood-and-thunder hokiness of the over-the-top plot tilts perilously close to absurdity, the admirably straight-faced performances by well-cast lead players provide just enough counterbalance to sustain audience curiosity and sympathy.
60
The film has enough entertaining action and sly humor to please its target audience.
60
Often resembles a prime John Carpenter thriller--call it "Assault on Manger 13"--until an overcaffeinated angel-fu climax significantly lowers the intelligence quotient.
42
After a brisk start, the script turns out to be a rough and humorless beast slouching its way towards utter ludicrousness.
40
Even if you overlook the lousy lighting, awkward editing, and uneven acting, there's so much talking -- and so little story -- that your mind is likely to wander.
40
The leaden dialogue and flat-footed storytelling hobble a talented cast.

Boxoffice Magazine
Essentially a B-movie dressed up with A-level special effects, Legion looks spiffy but sounds bad with a lot of overwritten dialogue scenes and predictable action.
33
A cartoonishly grim supernatural thriller that could stand a lot less talk and a lot more thrills.
30
Legion may traffic in signposts of the apocalypse, but the whole affair mostly indicates that we're in the movie wasteland that is January.
25
Orlando Sentinel
Profane, profanely silly and blasphemous to beat the band, Legion begins well before plunging into the abyss of tedium.
