‘Their mission was simple… kill something that couldn’t be killed’

Legion is a 1998 science fiction action horror feature film set in the future about a special forces team comprised of convicts that are sent on a deadly mission.

Directed by Jon Hess from a screenplay written by Evan Spiliotopoulos, the movie stars Parker Stevenson, Terry Farrell, Corey Feldman, Rick Springfield and Troy Donahue.

Plot:

In the year 2036, a special forces team led by Major Agatha Doyle (Terry Farrell) and formed from death-row prisoners is sent on a deadly mission.

Former war hero and now death row prisoner Captain Aldrich (Parker Stevenson) is offered the chance at a pardon if he will join the team and undertake their mission to infiltrate an enemy facility…

Reviews [click links to read more]:

Legion isn’t worth watching. Everything about it lines right up with my wheelhouse (Aliens rip-off and whatnot) but it sucks to the point where I needed multiple attempts to view it and still almost turned it off to check The Weather Channel.” Bulletproof Action

“By not showing even a hint of the monster until the very end, the thrills rapidly lose their credibility. During the closing scenes, when things are ultimately explained (in a meaty monologue) but remain unoriginal, the film resembles a bad episode of The X-Files or Star Trek (which is particularly curious considering that Farrell had just finished – abruptly – her run in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine).” Gone with the Twins

“The budget is somewhat cramped in terms of models and action and the film distinctly down around the B level. However, the film is filled with a series of fine character tensions – in fact, it is these that tend to drive Legion more so than the action element. Intriguingly, the film is crafted as a psychological version Alien (1979) or The Thing of sorts…” Moria

“This is an action-packed sci-fi/horror film drawing on plot devices of some of the best horror films of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. The sweaty Terry Farrell and boyish Parker Stevenson will keep fans of cheesecake and beefcake satisfied.” Zisi Emporium for B Movies

 

“It’s just the usual alien monster cover up type thing but its fun to guess who it is. An adult Corey Feldman and 80’s pop idol Rick Springfield give good performances and make it quite suspenseful. It just turns into a rip-off of Predator at the end though.” The Yeti
