Angels

In the supernatural action thriller Legion, an out-of-the-way diner becomes the unlikely battleground for the survival of the human race. When God loses faith in Mankind, he sends his legion of angels to bring on the Apocalypse. Humanity’s only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a desert diner and the Archangel Michael (Paul Bettany). Legion also stars Dennis Quaid, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson, Kate Walsh, Adrianne Palicki, Charles S. Dutton and Willa Holland and is directed by Scott Stewart.

Although this film is fictional, it again, brings up the various archetypal images common in our culture of the relationship between Heaven and Humanity.

Do you believe in Angels, The Apocalypse, and this type of relationship between mankind and the spiritual realms?

  1. This film seems like it’s going to be a disappointment (possibly). I’ve seen too many Hollywood films to know that they’re not as great as they could be and usually lacking in finer details, based mainly on action and explosions.

    I like that they are going there though… looking into the relationship between the higher forces and man. Maybe it will get people to think, but it seems to be slanted towards the “angry God” theme common in our culture, so it may just be riding on the same theme that is prevalent in our society anyway. If so, I guess it will just reinforce people’s beliefs in fearing God’s wrath as a means to “being good” instead of just naturally focusing on “being good” through a desire to be a kind and loving being without that seemingly necessary push through fear.

  2. ya i agree.. but maybe this movie will accentuate how ridiculous the very “angry god” concept is, with his bloodthirsty killer “angels”.
