Although the book Angels and Demons was written before the novel The Da Vinci Code, the movie transpires after the events of the earlier movie. Hanks stars as professor Robert Langdon, the most respected symbologist in the United States, who uses his knowledge in order to decode a symbol on the skin of a murder victim. The clues put him on the trail of an international conspiracy involving the Catholic Church. Ewan McGregor and Ayelet Zurer also star in the Sony Pictures production. Perry Seibert, RoviRead Less

Tom Hanks, Ayelet Zurer, Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgård, Pierfrancesco Favino. New in new packaging. Language: English. Run time: 138 mins. Aspect ratio: 2.40: 1. Originally released: 2009. Dan Brown s novels are packed with fascinating historical tidbits which he ingeniously twists into plots that are so intricate and complex that there is a constant need to inform the reader with exposition, often leaving little room for character development. There is a bit of this stilted quality to ANGELS AND DEMONS, the second of Brown s novels to be brought to the big screen by the tandem of Ron Howard and Tom Hanks, but more than enough intense action to keep the eyes of the audience as busy as their minds. The details of the plot are as diabolical as any in Hollywood history: after the pope s death, a nefarious organization stashes an antimatter bomb somewhere in the Vatican, threatening to annihilate the conclave of cardinals who are meeting to elect the papal successor. To pass the time until the bomb will detonate, the enemy begins to torture and kill a few of the individual cardinals, but there is a pattern to the grotesque executions, involving hidden sculptural symbols and secret architectural clues. Unfortunately for the church, the man most capable of deciphering the code is the American "symbologist" Robert Langdon (Hanks), who happens to be an affirmed atheist. The script is filled with amazing details about the centuries-old conflict between the church and the Illuminati (whose members included Galileo, Michelangelo, and Bernini), which Hanks uncovers as he breathlessly races between various landmarks in Rome, always a step behind the sinister assassin. The secondary cast consists almost entirely of European actors, including Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgaard, and Armin Mueller-Stahl, who betray so little emotion that it is impossible to tell who is a part of the conspiracy until long after the explosive climax., Tom Hanks and Ron Howard unite for their fourth pairing with this follow-up to THE DA VINCI CODE. Hanks returns to the role of Robert Langdon in this film based on ANGELS & DEMONS, Brown's first novel to feature the now-famous symbiologist.
Okay. To start with, I liked this movie. Only when it is compared with The Da Vinci Code do I have negative things to say. When the Code was over, I wanted to do research to see how much of that was BS. I have no such urges at the end of A&D. However, Angels & Demons was a very effective thriller due not only to the ticking bomb in the Vatican but the hourly deaths of the holy men. In twenty years I don't think Angels will be the classic that Code will be; with scenes, lines and cinematography that you will remember years later; but it is a good, tightly written and well-acted film deserving to be in any complete film library.

Intriguing Murder Mystery
I went to the movie theatre, a little dubious. I hadn't been impressed with "The Da Vinci Code." But I was pleasantly surprised! It was a very interesting and exciting story. A murder mystery surrounded in the rich history of Vatican City and codes. The twist had me dumbfounded for a week. It's very intense, but awesome. The actors portrayed the characters very well.
