The four stars is because gains pace a little to slow in the beginning for my taste, but this does not hinder the film for the many.
I thought this would be very American and predictable - it was not.

It starts out slow and methodical and picks up speed rapidly. You become engrossed easily and forget its a movie willing everything to be OK whilst learning at the same time.

The murder scenes are realistic yet tasteful so age appropriate for the audience, no swearing or nudity, no unnecessary romance.

Whilst the film centres around the Vatican and the Catholic faith it does not have an undertone that would be unpalatable to those who have other religious / non religious / agnostic / tolerant / atheist beliefs. Which means you can just enjoy the movie.

Historical gems are dropped through out - beautiful inside imagery of the Vatican not otherwise seen publicly. Up close highlights of some of the worlds most beautiful and hidden art, sculpture and texts. - With an unexpected ending.
Definitely one to watch.

I have the Da vinci code and loved it. I did have a copy of this film somewhere and couldn't find it. My niece kept telling me to watch Inferno but I wanted to watch the middle film first. This is an amazing film. I do not know how much of it is real to life with the Vatican and the Pope and I know my Niece who is Catholic would never be allowed to watch it, as her father is very strict, but I loved the running around Rome, the secret passages , the hidden clues. I studied History of Art so I love that the stories are in part down to hidden clues of works of art from that time. I highly recommend this film. By the way I did watch Inferno and it was no where near as good and I would not watch it again. Deadly virus has been done to death!

How can so much remarkable talent make such an unremarkable film?

Ewan McGregor steals the show as the only actor doing a decent job of acting. Ayelet Zurer does a wonderful job of being stunningly beautiful. Tom Hanks does Tom Hanks brilliantly. But as for the plot, well, ermm ... what can I write that would be printable ...? I staggered through to the end by sheer willpower, "I've started so I'll finish". Enough said? The only saving grace is that the ending imparts an interesting twist to the tale ...

Best of the trilogy
Verified purchase
***VERY MILD SPOILERS*** Dan Brown, so the conventional wisdom has it, can't do characters. They're just ciphers for his plotting, which inevitably revolves around following clue A to location B to gain clue C (repeat until you get to the twist when someone you trusted turns out not to be trustworthy).
Angels & Demons is that movie. It should be terrible. The Da Vinci Code is and Inferno isn't much better. But even a paper thin character is better in the hands of Tom Hanks. And even the most derivative of plots is given far more care and attention than it deserves by Ron Howard. So it is that Angels & Demons overcomes the silliness, the formula and the Basil Exposition dialogue to be 'not as bad as you think it'll be'. High praise indeed.

Seriously among the worst films ever made. Dire, and utterly terrible in every conceivable way. I really can't write anything else about it without excessive profanity. Somebody, somewhere, should be punished for this.

An excellent follow-up to The Da Vinci Code

Angels & Demons is a 2009 American mystery thriller directed by Ron Howard and based on Dan Brown's novel of the same name. As a film it is the sequel to the 2006 film, The Da Vinci Code, also directed by Ron Howard. The novel was published first and The Da Vinci Code followed it. Filming of Angels & Demons took place in Rome, Italy, and the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California. Tom Hanks returns to play the lead role - Robert Langdon - as do producer Brian Grazer, composer Hans Zimmer and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman.

Under the watchful eyes of Father Silvano Bentivoglio and Dr. Vittoria Vetra, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) initiates the Large Hadron Collider and creates three vials of antimatter particles larger than any that have ever been produced before. Almost immediately, Father Silvano is killed and one of the vials of antimatter goes missing. At the same time, the Roman Catholic Church is mourning the sudden death of Pope Pius XVI in Rome and prepares for the papal conclave to elect the next Pope. The Camerlengo Patrick McKenna (Ewan McGregor) assumes temporary control of the Vatican. The Illuminati kidnap four of the 'preferiti' (the favourite cardinals to be elected pope) before the conclave enters seclusion and threaten to kill one candidate every hour and destroy all of Vatican City at midnight, using the missing vial of antimatter as a bomb. The Vatican summons symbologist Robert Langdon from Harvard University and Vittoria from CERN to help them save the four preferiti and locate the vial.

Although I had heard or read somewhere that the film adaptation of Angels & Demons wasn't as successful as that of The Da Vinci Code, I thought it was a very good follow-up even though the two stories are unrelated. I got this film as a Christmas present for my dad to accompany the Da Vinci Code DVD he already has, and he was really pleased to get it as we believe it to be just as good as The Da Vinci Code. Very highly recommended.

In the second film to be adapted from Dan Brown's book Robert Langdon finds himself drawn into a case involving the Vatican and the apparent return of the Illuminati.
Tom Hanks is brilliant yet again as Robert Langdon and the supporting cast are equally as good especially Ewen McGregor.
Totally enjoyable and highly recommended.

I read the book - well, 'they' said it was good. I even finished it. Didn't hold out much hope for the film, but it was a pleasant surprise, even with the lack of attention to faulty historical research. A fine diversion on a quiet evening. And the twist was well played.
