One of the most amazing, passionate, heartfelt and mind blowingly awesome instrumentals of all time, as short a piece as it is! Be astonished at the musicality of Zakk Wylde in the ballad Farewell! The song has been compared to an orgasm, a symphony & an epic in less than 2 minutes but I’d call it the feeling of heartbreak when you have to say goodbye to someone who you have truly & passionately loved for so long! It’s a lover’s world come crashing down.
Released in 2009, Legion directed by Scott Stewart, stars Paul Bettany, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson, Adrianne Palicki, Kate Walsh and Dennis Quaid. It supernatural thriller depicting kind of apocalyptic situation featuring the angels who come down to earth wipe out human kind the orders of god. Apparently, as explained by archangel Michael, God has lost faith in mankind and has sent down his angels to destroy the human race.
If that doesn’t scare you off Christianity nothing ever will and you are a lost cause! Not you typical benevolent angel type behaviour eh? No peace loving, wearing white and spreading love throughout the universe type proto-hippy these guys. And what a god, such a sucker for violence, the sonofabitch!! Anyhoo Michael (Bettany) falls down to earth and cuts off his wings, as he opposed god’s plans to wipe out humanity as Michael still believes that humans have good in them. He then heads for the Paradise Falls diner, near the edge of the Mojave Desert. Meanwhile, Kyle (Tyrese Gibson), a single father driving to L.A., stops at the diner. There he meets the owner, Bob Hanson (Dennis Quaid); his son Jeep (Lucas Black); the short-order cook Percy (Charles S. Dutton); a pregnant waitress, Charlie (Adrianne Palicki); a married couple, Howard and Sandra Anderson (Jon Tenney and Kate Walsh), and their rebellious teenage daughter, Audrey (Willa Holland).
After a scary moment with an initially pleasant old woman turns in a wall crawling banshee inside the dinner and attack of horseflies as patrons try to leave, Michael arrives to arm them and as sky turns black, he informs them and the fact that Charlie’s baby will the saviour of mankind and it must stay alive for mankind to survive. Michael leads the group to fight off possessed humans who are out to kill the baby and will attack and kill the patrons of the dinner to get to it. (This fucking god is crazy and pycho) Some of patrons are killed as time goes on and finally horns signal the arrival of archangel Gabriel, sent by god himself to lead the attack and just Charlie delivers the baby. Gabriel kills Michael and the latter body disappears.
Finally only Jeep, Charlie, the baby and Audrey are left and they leave in car. Gabriel chases after them and Audrey is killed, and as Gabrie about kill the remaining 3 humans, Michael is back angel, having regained his powers back. He states to Gabriel that his angelic powers were restored because did what god needed and not what god wanted (this fucking god is lunatic) and thus humanity has been given another chance. This time Michael defeats Gabriel, who leaves. Enlisting Jeep as true protector of baby, Michael leaves and Jeep, Charlie and the baby make way in car to town nearby. The end!
A pissed of god, angels that kill with remorse and possessed humans. Read my review and saw some time. 6 outta 10 and that action scenes!
