Rated R for strong fantasy horror violence and gore, brief sexuality/nudity and language, Running time 88 minutes, Action/Fantasy/Horror

Compare to: Van Helsing (2004), The Brothers Grimm (2005)

It’s tough to know where to start with this one. Expectations were so low, it would almost have been a feat for creators to meet them.

That being said, this movie is not good. Worse has been made sure, and even worse has already been released this year, but that’s not saying much for this movie either- “Eh, there’s worse out there.” Continue reading

I really can’t tell if this looks cool or not. The idea itself is something, Famke Janssen as a witch seems right, but it just looks like it has that potential to be terrible.

Reznor seems to be the go-to-guy these days for movie music.

So how can you make a sequel when the main actor isn’t even coming back to reprise his role?Spinoff! I’ll admit I was a little intrigued by the idea of Jeremy Renner getting his own movie; playing second fiddle, so to speak, to Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol out last December and to the Avengers in (duh) The Avengers. So how does this stack up the others? Wouldn’t know, I haven’t seen them. How is it as a film on its own? Boring.

Imagine an action movie with most of the action cut out, and you’ll have an idea of how Legacy feels. Continue reading
