Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

To bill this show as a docuseries is a stretch, considering nothing about it is "documentary" worthy. In fact, nothing about it is even new, since it comprises scenes that Marvel fans likely already have seen in watching the feature films. It's essentially a highlight reel for the selected characters, with their most memorable moments onscreen filling the short episodes.

If you're not already a Marvel fan, the preselected thrills of Legends just might change that for you if for no other reason than to get more thorough context for the sometimes erratic series of movie clips this show delivers. In those cases, the series ends with a friendly reminder of the titles of the movies that yielded the thrilling scenes you just watched as well as an indicator of forthcoming shows featuring the characters. If that sounds a lot like the job of a movie trailer, you'd be right, as Legends is an extremely effective ad campaign for the action-packed Marvel Universe films as a whole.
