Hi everyone. Well after reading several threads here about "Legend" the movie by Ridley Scott (one of my top favorite directors) I started to wonder what I had really missed? Maybe Im to young? I turned 26 this year. But still this is the deal. I have read so many threads here about the expectations and appreciations of Legend, specially since it has been a long awaited release on dvd. Well at first I didn't think much about it, but then came banners "Release Legend now!!!" etc.. I guess it all kind of exploded thanks to the release of the "ultimate version". So anyway, my closest friend who is also a big fan of Ridley Scott, had never seen or heard about this movie either. So a couple of weeks ago he had the opportunity to see the movie. He did and he had to force himself through it. He told me that more than once he wanted to turn it of cause it was just unbearably bad. Well I thought, he must have had to high expectations of the movie, that can ruin almost anything. So last weekend I got hold of the dvd of this movie and thought that now I would see it with an open mind, I set my expectations to nothing..and started. After about 30 minutes I fell asleep!! I never fall asleep when watching movies?? Well the next day I managed to see the rest of it, well forced myself would do it more justice. I must be missing something, what is the greatness about this movie? To me it was: Zero dialogue, I mean when they acctually talked there was no spirit, no thought, no nothing that made it even remotely interesting. The characters, how old is this movie? Sure maybe to some ppl pigs are evil minions but hey a "pig man" ? How scary is that? Then the story, guy loves girl, girl messes everything up, (not that guy tries to stop girl in any way at all, more than saying hey, sorry, pardon you shouldn't...ahh, Ill walk away) Then lets take a dip in water, ops winter came, lets find some strange little ppl, and OPS I got some armour then we let the sun shine a demon to death. End of story, well of the movie anyway. oh and the last but absolutely most weird and confusing thing that sweeped through my mind: The "demon"! I mean who's idea was it to make him a mix of Diablo and Jay Leno? (you guys who have played the game Diablo or Diablo II, know what I mean) Yeah I know this movie came out way before Diablo etc...but still, from the first view of this demon until the end I just couldn't take my eyes of that HUGE chin. Now this movie must totally be a: "I saw this when I was a kid and it has emotional value to me thats why I love it." Right? Last: Im sorry if someone out there is taking offence if Im bashing their favorite movie, but I can't help it, it really was that bad, to me.
