I always questioned both the decision of having Ron Howard as director and Tom Hanks as the main star for Dan Brown's series of novels following Robert Langdon and his cryptic mysteries. I soldiered through both DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons and wasn't really looking forward to this, but, for completions sake, I finally broke down. It's about as vanilla bland as the first two, and it deviates quite a bit from the novel. I liked the supporting actors here better thank Hanks or Felicity Jones, but not enough to really elevate this beyond a basic caper.

Let me break this down for you in terms of my thoughts: The best: + Tom Hanks is ace as usual + Some interesting ideas + It's nicely shot The worst: - Hanks hair - Felicity Jones character - It's boring - Bland directing - Horrible writing - Who ask for a third one? Good luck with the next Han Solo movie, Howard.

Finally! These stupid Robert Langdon movies are fun to watch! Ron Howard, what took you so long? The Da Vinci Code was a pretentious slog, Angels & Demons was better but made blowing up the Vatican boring, and now with Inferno, these movies finally seem to find their groove.
Unfortunately given the negative reaction to this one, it might be the last. But at least it goes out with a bang. Ok not really, the threat this time is a man-made virus. And to make it more interesting, Professor Langdon (Tom Hanks) has amnesia and must retrace his steps to find the clues using Dante's Inferno as a map, if you will.
The movie runs at a lean two hours and makes the most of it. There's the usual foot chases, car crashes, and scenic vistas but it's fun for once. Dumb popcorn fun that happens to …

A Tepid Inferno

Exactly what motivated Sony to make a third instalment for a franchise that was more zeitgeisty than Kony 2012 is a far more captivating mystery than anything Dan Brown, in all his unsuppressed fatuousness, has ever conceived. Certainly, I enjoyed those first two films (well, maybe just the extended cut in the case of 'The Da Vinci Code'), but then blockbuster lineups are not predicated on my many-faceted whims and fancies. If this film was to be the exception, that is deeply regrettable, as I found this film hollow and lacking in thrills. It tries so hard to be frantic and nail-biting, but ultimately just comes off as pathetically desperate.

You can imagine Ron Howard, with the scathing Da Vinci reviews echoing through his mind with words like 'turgid', 'meandering', and 'dull', …
