The story is about a secret society long thought died out, has resurfaced in Rome and threatens to destroy the Catholic church. It is up to Robert Langdon to follow the clues and unravel the plot before their plans can come to fruition. This movie is hard to follow and pretty boring.

I have a personal bias against puzzle movies, since the characters in them always seem to figure out the puzzles all too quickly and easily. This film has that problem, but it also has a bloated and messy plot. Ron Howard does keep the action moving, but I really wasn't invested in any of it.

So, I refuse to read these books on the principle that they are way to popular and I did not like the first movie at all. However, Angel & Demons was alright. They cut Tom Hanks' horrible hair. The action seemed to make a bit more sense with the plot, which is a big step up. The ending and the "twist" were super obvious, but didn't really ruin the movie.

A Weak Sequel

The much-anticipated film follow up to Dan Brown’s ‘DaVinci Code’ is actually a prequel to that best selling novel, but the ‘Angels & Demons’ script is deftly tweaked to come off as cinematic sequel instead. Ron Howard (yes, our beloved ‘Opie’ for those of us old enough to remember Andy Griffith and that special place called Mayberry) again takes the reigns as director. David Koeep (‘War Of The Worlds’, ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’) and Akiva Goldsman (‘DaVinci Code’ and ‘I Am Legend’) are onboard as the writers. The only other really familiar face here is, of course, our hero, Robert Langdon (aka Tom Hanks).

I was all ready to be enthralled by this promising thrill ride, but in a very short period of time I was disappointed. Mr. Hanks is forced to run around c...

A good mystery movie

"Robert Langdon" (Tom Hanks) is back, and he has only a few hours to solve a mystery to save thousands of Catholic faithful, and top candidates for role of pope, before an incident which will kill them all as they await the annoucement of who the new leader of the church will be.

Now, "Langdon", along with a woman who helped create antimatter in a lab, must figure out the clues and save the faithful of the world's largest church.

Let me say first that this is much better than the original movie, which I barely remember seeing. You really don't need to read the novel that the movie is based upon to enjoy it.

There are some really good performances in this film, especially from Hanks, who proved himself as a solid leading man many times. Here, he really shines as a leading man.

Angels and Demons Review

Angels & Demons is the sequel to the 2006 box office phenomenon The Da Vinci Code. You know, that one movie back in the day that had the Vatican ready to declare a crusade on Hollywood, that same movie that brought atheists together saying that their time had at last come, the same movie that was preparing to change the foundations of Christianity as we knew it... Then the movie came out and everyone who was ready for that defining moment put their clubs and spears behind their backs and said, "Never mind." The wide number of historic inaccuracies and many smaller problems caused the movie to be looked down upon by critics, but Ron Howard sure didn't care, he was walking away with $508 million.

My mom and dad were going out to see it this morning and they invited me along, so I decided...

The book was better. I'm gonna guess that Angels & Demons will be the same.

I saw the "code" and didn't care for it at all.  A little too hokey.  I thought Hanks could have done much better.  He has not been in an amazing movie for a really long time.  Looks like this one got pushed back to 2009.
