For those who hadn't read the book, this movie would be hard to understand.  In the book a lot is explained and the book flows at a good pace.  The movie crams a lot of information at you and you have Dr. Langdon off chasing clues to kidnapped Cardinals and it is difficult to follow what is going on.  The Da Vinci Code, which was an inferior book, played much better on the big screen.  There the audience was given sufficient explanation for everything and the pace was such the …

As a student ofthe humanites, I loved the movie. I have to say that I love learning about symbology in works of art and its importance to people and groups throughout history. Dan Brown has really revived the study of iconography in all his books. Anyone wanting to explore the subject more should read: Irwin Panofsky's "Studies in Iconagraphy."

Angels and Demons, Tom Hanks
As far as movies about revenge and retribution go, Angels and Demons is actually pretty clever. A story about the Illuminati seeking revenge against the Church could be a Michael Bay movie, should he ever attempt a academic-intellectual film. The result would just about be the same. With highly unstable anti-matter as our big bang device, this one could have had Bay's name written all over it.    I can hear the trailer now..."BAY. (wind sound effect) BROWN. (wind sound effect). …

Is the world finally over the controversy that was brought up over "The Da Vinci Code" yet? I swear, for such a lousy movie it caused a lot more protests then I would have expected. Maybe those protests helped and maybe they didn't, but "The Da Vinci Code" went on to become one of the years highest grossing films two years back, and now Tom Hanks and Ron Howard are back for another go. This time they are tackling "Angels & Demons," which in book form was the prequel to ‘Da Vinci' but in movie …

I was shocked by the incredibly stupid and convoluted plot of Angels & Demons - even worse than the The Da Vinci Code. While I understand Dan Brown's stories are works of fiction, this just goes too far into the realm of unbelievability. It seems ass if one man was able to launch an entire conspiracy against the papal leadership, kill dozens of cops, and kidnap four cardinals with minimal help. Professor Robert Langdon, the protagonist, is able to draw connections between vague clues and never seems …

Great twist at the end!

Following up on the box office success of The Da Vinci Code, Ron Howard's adaptation of Dan Brown's book is a great movie in a year of great movies. With Tom Hanks returning as Professor Langdon, the movie also features the beautiful Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer in probably her biggest role so far. This time around, our scientist hero, Dr. Langon, is running around Rome trying to find four kidnapped cardinals and a bomb before midnight. Not quite like the TV show "24", but close in its fast paced …

Here we have the sequel to the rather mediocre film The da Vinci Code. The source material for that film was pretty weak. Angels and Demons, thankfully, has stronger source material and is, also thankfully, a far better film.    The movie tells the story of a group of terrorists who get their hands on some anti-matter and hide it somewhere in the Vatican, promising to blow the place sky-high. They haven't any demands or anything like that. They just plan to blow it up as revenge …

This movie is filled with suspense. I've always been a fan of secret societies and conspiracies so this film was right up my alley!

ANGELS & DEMONS would work well as a silent movie - well, a silent movie with the musical score of Hans Zimmer in the background. Cinematographer Salvatore Totino offers us views of Rome and Vatican City, both from the exterior and from the historically significant interiors, that are as stunning as any on film. The actors look well and seem as involved as the creaky script by David Koepp and Akiva Goldsman have pasted together from Dan Brown's first (in a probably endless line) novel allows about …

Angels and Demons has the formula for success. Tom Hanks at the peak of his career, Ewan McGregor (Obie Wan from Star Wars), a gorgeous brunette leading lady, a spectacular city, Ron Howard directing, and a good simple suspense story that doesn't telegraph the ending too soon; equals a movie worth watching.    The film is based on another Dan Brown book that does have the feel of The DaVinci Code. However, the DaVinci Code's story line was convoluted and actually lost me more …

  Wassup my fellow Lunchers,    Recently I saw Angels & Demons the follow up to the DaVinci Code. It was a decent movie with some really good ups and some really bad downs. First the trailer then comes the Good, The Bad & the UGLY!!!      The Good:   Finally a smart movie. I felt as though Hollywood believed that only morons go to the movies because the character thought process in a lot of today's movies is really disappointing. …
