I recently watched The Legion and it made me think of Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes and the Resident Evil series. Similar plots. Similar killers. The Hills Have Eyes remake has Lost’s Emily DeRavin in it, but I am still concerned whether it was really necesary.
Resident Evil, I only watched the 3rd and 4th parts and my favorite character is K-Mart played by Spencer Locke. This may mostly be because she’s close to my age. I hate all the sci-fi business. Zombies? I prefer Wes Craven’s cannibals any day.
Legion, this new movie that came out this year, has an interesting idea, but the plot was terrible. I watched it for Greys and Private Practice’s Kate Walsh, who’s character was extremely annoying at the beginning, but then she went psycho. I loved the scene where the husband is blown up. A bunch of other staff follow, people try to calm her down, but they cannot, so they tight her up. Then, all given up she tells her daughter it’s all her fault. And finally she gets shot. If not these three scenes, the film would be extremely weak.
Verdict – The Hills Have Eyes series is the best.
