“Legendary” Reviews Are in: Film Gets Panned By Most Critics

Nick Paglino

RottenTomatoes.com has compiled reviews for John Cena’s new film "Legendary," which opens at select theaters tomorrow. Below is a sample of critical response, and overall the movie has a 23% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

"It’s a feel-good Kleenex dispenser of a movie, and there’s nothing necessarily wrong with that, but it’s routine Hallmark Hall of Afterschool Special material." -Roger Ebert

"The script, by actor turned writer John Posey, has structural problems and motivational issues in between the cliches. And Cena, a few movies into his career, is still all presence and no acting." -Roger Moore

"Talk about movies that cannot possibly live up to their titles." -Rex Reed

"A wonderfully crafted coming-of-age drama about the love that can heal the brokenness of an estranged family." -Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

"It’s as if the filmmakers swallowed the sports-movie handbook and regurgitated every cliché in half-digested form." -David Fear
