FIlm Critic Quote of the Day

Sean Burns, after pointing out that "Legion"'s plot is identical to that of "The Terminator":

Legion is a cheap zombie-siege movie gussied up with inconsistent theology. Its good moments (there are two) involve the demonic/angelic possession of an elderly lady and a 7-year-old boy. The movie only starts to kick when the super-powered old hag is screaming the C-word and biting off chunks of people’s necks, or an innocent-looking kid is attempting a home abortion with a kitchen knife. The rest of the film could have been mailed-in clips from crappy ’80s movies in your old VHS collection.
That, I'm sure, makes it sound a lot more fun than it is.
