  1. Can anyone tell me if a radio announcer's voice is heard in the film discussing the casualty count? I have somewhat of a vested interest in learning this…!

  2. lol.that WAS funny..”baby tumble”..i laughed out loud during most of the ending of this movie…It was kinda like watching M.Night Shamalong or how ever you spell it work during The Village…lol just funny for being so silly!…lol

  3. Oh my..what movie where you watching?…you are kidding right??

  4. OMG..too funny! Too true!! Love this comment!

  5. As far as the demonic angels, I would imagine that if fallen angels cans possess people and make them look demonic, that the angels still in the service of god would be able to the same, they just never do, except now that they have gods permission.

    Or perhaps angels can just control the “demonic side” of people (Michael Mentioned they were the weak, or more simply just more evil people).

    I thought the Ice Cream man, little lady, and police officer were just more possessed vessels. I was under the impression the only true form angels that came down were Gabriel and Michael. In terms of military tactics this is somewhat sound, why send real angels to get killed only to have to 'reborn' them, why not just take over those that you wish to kill and make them kill each other?

    • i was thinking the same. i believe Gabriel was sent in angel form in order to stop Michael and finish them since the possessed people failed

  6. I think Michael still had some super powers left, I mean that standing still flip he did to avoid the Gabriel wing swipe seemed somewhat super human.

  7. Good stuff, never thought about god not only testing humanity, but his angelic army as well. Evidently Michael was the only one who was listening to dad….or mom….or it, whatever god may be. (no offense meant to Christianity, but who is to say an all powerful being has to be male or female).

    From this movie I felt more like an alien race created humanity, and has the power to bring back humans as angel like beings once they die and go to heaven (spaceship in the sky).

    • What do you mean who is to say who God is? God is a male, and he created you and me. Sent his son down to die for all of humanity, so that we wouldn’t go to hell. The Bible is very clear that God is a male, not a female, and most certainly not an it. If you mean no offense to Christianity, then before you tell the world about what you think, why don’t you do some research on the topic.

      • As far as god being a male I don’t fully believe that because the aramaic meaning of god was roughly translated to father of creation and when man is referred to, it referred to mankind as a whole u never hear woman in the original texts so before u defend cristianity be a Christian a nd know ur religion bc I couldn’t argue this if I didn’t know mine (christianity if u haven’t figured it out yet)

  8. hahaha

  12. hahaha

  13. On second thought, I feel like that movie has been done.

  14. At the end of the film when Gabriel, Michael, and Jeep have a conversation in a different language, what was said? I downloaded this and am not sure if there were supposed to be subtitles or not. Anyone have any help on that subject?

    • They were speaking Russian. The english language track cuts off 5 mins before the end and the original russian dub plays out.

      Bad angel: Why do you continue to fight when all hope is lost.
      Man : F**k You!
      GABRIEL SWOOPS IN.
      Bad Angel: This can’t be. You disobeyed him.
      Gabriel : You gave him what he asked for. I gave him(God) what he needed.
      Goes to cut bad angel head off.
      Bad angel: Do it!
      Gabriel : No.
      Bad Angel: I would not have shown you such mercy.
      Gabriel : I know. That’s why you failed him. BAD ANGEL FLUTTERS OFF.
      TO MAN. They’re waiting.
      Man : Where are you going?
      Gabriel : You are the true protector. You always have been.
      Man : Will we ever see you again.
      Gabriel : Have faith. GABRIEL FLUTTERS OFF.

      • Hey just to let you know the angel that Jeep tells to F*** off is actually Gabriel, and the angel that swoops in right before Jeep is gonna be killed is Michael

  15. My take on the whole possesing poeples bodies thing would be that
    1.-mayby angels of a lower rank cannot pass down to Earth, and therefore have to resort to possesing the weak-minded
    2.- Or it is possible that by passing as humans, it would make it easier for them to exterminate the unsuspecting strong-minded. For example the part when one of the characters tried to save the kid, but then the kid became possesed and killed him.

    About the demonic personas and the extreme elongated limbs and sharp teeth. Well i suppose that would just make the angels jobs easier, i mean how else could the granny have killed them if she couldn't walk on walls, or have sharp teeth.
    The big question that everyone keeps on asking is who the child is, and how God couldn't have seen the saviour of mankind, being himself an all-powerful all-seeing God. In answer to that, God had lost faith, and had decided to destroy the whole of teh human race, yes?. He could have known about the baby being the saviour of the world, but he probably foresaw humanity sinking back into its old habits, and therefore had decided to end it there and then. However i think that God didn't see Michael rebelling against him, and so didn't believe that humanity could have a second chance. After all it was Michael that persuaded Charlie to take the reposibility and to help raise the saviour of humanity. This God possibly had not foreseen.
    O.k this is the end of my very long and probably uninformative rant ever…

    P.S Charlie was not thrown out of teh car when it crashed. She obviously got out while Jeep was unconscious.DUH. Plus Charlie was holding onto that baby quite tight, but remeber Audrey didn't have a seatbelt on…O.k now this IS the end of my ranting…

  16. i believe the baby is the saviour of the human world, his name is Legion, hence why the movie is called legion. Legion in christianity and in demonology was a half breed between a human and angel. I think the sequel will have to do with him protecting the world from hell/demons because that is why god sent out the angels to destroy the world because it was going to be over run by lucifer or damian (son of satan). It was already becoming corrupt n god did not want that happening because it gives lucifer a army of hell on earth which would be ran by Damian. Legion is also the guardian of the human race.

    • that is the best explanation I have read thus far. thank you.

    • Interesting take on the whole thing. I never thought of it that way.
      However, why would Michael try to protect the baby if it is a half breed between a human and an angel. This has actually happened before, there’s a story of fallen angels empregnating earthly women, and they were considered an abomination. Oh, maybe its the same thing happening here.
      P.S fallen angels are demons really. Both angels and “demons” are still angels, its just that we think angel means good.

    • A legion is not a half breed of anything. A legion is a term used in the Bible to refer to an amount of Angels. A common use was in Roman times. A legion was 3,000-6,000 soldiers. Its a unit. In the scriptures it is used to describe angels as well because that’s what people would understand as a large number.

      • actually its 1,000 and its 1000 demonic or evil souls in one body

      • a legion was 1,000 soldiers and Legion is 1,000 demonic, cursed, evil souls in one body

  17. why does jeep have those weird tattoos on him at the end of the movie? did i miss something or wat?

  18. why does jeep have those weird tattoos on him at the end of the movie? did i miss something or wat?

    • Remember, before Michael & Gabriel’s fight, he tells Jeep to lead Charlie and the baby out of there…to safety…or somewhere besides where the angel wanting to kill baby is. He tells Jeep to learn his prophets and [trying to remember] read or learn the “instructions”. If you look, Michael has tattoos covering him from neck to wrists. When Gabriel’s weapon puts metal through Michael’a chest, killing him {for the moment} that’s when those same markings show up on Jeep. Jeep then goes on expressing his understanding of the “instructions”.

      That’s my best answer. >8^)

  19. guy i think i know what the colars are when he broke his some kind of energy was realized but he took it off before he cut his wings and if the wings were metalic he would not have been able to cut them so the collar is what made the wings bullet proof prolly also what made the mace spin if the baby is actualy named legion then its michaels son did you see how she looked at him as if she knew him the reason gabrial failed is becaus he killed michial blindly just because god told him to meing he wasent using free will.

    the instructions are ether how to take care of legion or tells the story of what legion is and whos his father

    the angels acted just like humnans thats why they failed

    no one from the dinner was possid because they all had grown strong by realizing stuff. threw out the movie

    the test was god thought that humanity would change if breed with an angle but he didnt want the legion baby to follow like sheep like the other angels were doing since micheal was the father god knows the baby will have a strong will of its own. the possed humans twitched when the baby cried because they new they had failed god when they walked out the backthe possed humans head were bowed ect

  20. Okay maybe i just didnt understand the movie at all but i thought that the baby was like Michael's baby at the beginning you know kinda like half angle half human thing. Later though i started thinking it might be like the Messiah coming “back” or whatever since Michael told Jeep to look for the profet and something about reading a map. Oh and you know like he told them that the baby had to be born to lead them i figured that meant “he would lead you in the path of God”.

  21. One word Arch angels…Lol they never address any of this in the movie nor would they….its action horror film with an attempt at a Biblical twist….interpretation of the apocalypse and post apocalypse is based soley upon the individual….take the film for wat it is….a grain of salt pretty much is saying never give up hope don’t lose faith
    …the only part I enjoyed really was Paul bettany as Michael everthing else was mediocre the speech to “Jeep”<— Come on really…..took a moment away from all the movies "darkness" and gave it some enlightment….tyrese blew it for me wen he referred to Michael as white boy….uhhh nice honestly as the films outlook on evrything from the way the Bible describes the apocalypse its anything and everything but heaven……its the end of the world….signed sealed and delivered

  22. One part I didn’t get in the movie was when Audrey’s dad was getting dragged out the window by a teenage girl, and then the girl looks at Audrey’s mother, and goes look what you made me do mother? Or it sounded like she said that.. Unless I misunderstood. But I liked the movie. But I didn’t think Angels were gonna look like that. But maybe that is what will happen to us when we are suppose to end or whatever.

  23. Btw.. Aren’t there other babies in the world that are going to born, instead of Charlie’s baby? Like why’s hers the Chosen one?

  24. Just remember its a movie and theres one point in the movie were a possessed human say “See what you made me do mother?!” anybody know who that is? and another person in that scene says something along the words of “theres my girl” who is that?

  25. First, the child’s name is not decided. Legion refers to Mark 5:9, “My name is Legion, for we are many.” As such, Legion is the collective of angels who lack individual identity but serve as 1 under God.

    Before attempting to flame in regards to Gabriel and Michael having names, remember Michael discloses he was the general of God’s army. Secondly, one can theorize (acceptedly) that Michael and Gabriel are Arch-Angels… or a level above angel – thus allowing for individual identity.

    As far as the child being born, if you notice the opening sequence says December 23rd. The radio reception comes in towards the end of the film discussing the 48 hours since apocolypse has occured; therefore making it Christmas Day. Hint! Hint! Messiah? Deliverer from evil?? Get the comparison people? Forget not the concept that the second coming according to Revelations brings with it both the Apocolypse and judgement.

    For those that wish to brush up on Old Testament, you would find that God destroyed the Earth with a great flood. But not before telling Noah that only his family would be spared destruction. Noah convinced God to give Noah the chance to save others. God allowed Noah to try and permission to save any other humans that would accept the offer. None accepted the offer until the ark’s doors were closed.

    Consequently,the theme arises here as well given, Michael took it upon himself to disobey God to give him what he needed. Hope. This hope was in the form of those in the diner who fought to defend themselves and save the baby. Thus showing what God needed to know, in that there were people worthy of salvation and to bring forth an enlightenment and change of conciousness.

    Conceivably, might perhaps be stretching a bit at this point, but could it possibly be – God’s plan involved a purge of weak-willed phonies as an illustrative reminder of both his power and ability to forgive/mercy? Permit me to remind you, Charlie was giving the child up for adoption. That child would not have a clue for its own importance if not for the apocolypse. Therefore, stuff had to hit the fan for God’s plan to come into line, and in all actuality, God put things into motion exactly as they needed to be. Conflict, plague, death, and all.

    • legion is a demon bro

    • and christmas is a pagan holiday

  26. Wouldn’t god of known what would happen since he’s God? He’s God… isn’t he able to see history before history is written? So he should of known that if he had done this that the result and the end of the movie would of happened. Basically if God is a psychic, what was the point, to change to people’s mind on life and change everything… because I doubt any other humans learned anything.

  27. I’m guessing the electric collars are to keep the angels under control and when the angels gave up their bodies and entered human ones they lost their power.

  28. What did they end up naming the baby?

  29. My only queery is: near the end of the film when Gabriel arrives and Jeep leaves with the baby, why do none of the possessed touch the baby or attempt any attack what so ever; apart from the ‘bag head’ who just swings a stick and hits the car.
    Is there any reason why they do not approach the baby?
