Movie Review – Angels and Demons

Posted on July 15, 2009


I watched Angels and Demons last night. Again, like the first movie ( The Da Vinci Code ), it is not near as good as the book, but it is a good movie. Those of you who know me, know that I do not say that very often. Very good acting, great story, good special effects. The only problem I really have with the movie is that it is kind of hard to understand some of the people when they speak and since there is a lot of information given very quickly it may make it hard to follow for people who have not read the book. However, if you liked the first movie, I think you will like this one as well.


Angels and Demons re-teams director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks for the sequel to their international blockbuster adaptation of Dan Brown‘s novel The Da Vinci Code. 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.
