  • Angels And Demons...A Sequel That Feels Like A Sequel

    Sep 16, 2009 by coldsteel7 is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Movies
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Decent scenery, some suspense, polished look.
    Cons: Terrible script, not believable, weak acting.

    Summary: I though The Da Vinci Code was moderately palatable. Nothing spectacular. Which is why I was surprised to see a sequel. The film made lots of money but just was not that good.  Why someone chose to make a sequel is beyond my ... read more

  • Love it

    Oct 9, 2012 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The realness of the movie inspired my outside interest in the Illuminati.
    Cons: Not really a movie for the young.

    Summary: I totally loved this movie. It had conflict. It had resolution. The movie captured my attention from the beginning to end. It made me feel like I wanted to be the one that was investigating and discovering the secrets. In fact, it prompted me to read a ... read more

  • Exciting and contains a huge twist

    Jun 24, 2010 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: exciting, energetic, intellectual
    Cons: can be confusing and seem never-ending at times

    Summary: This movie contained all you could ask for in a suspenseful adventure movie.  I can’t even describe the magnitude of the twist at the end.  I was definitely thinking about this movie for the next week after seeing it – it stuck with ... read more

    Pros: Action Scenes, Background score, Decent performances
    Cons: Barely audible mumbled dialogs

    Summary: Introduction Though Da Vinci Code is Dan Brown’s most popular book, my personal favorite is Angels & Demons. I was disappointed with the movie version of Da Vinci Code, and was hoping that the team would have ... read more

  • Angels And Demons Is Utterly Fascinating

    Jul 12, 2009 by

    Pros: Suspenseful, eerie, beautiful scenery, great acting
    Cons: Several gory moments, a tad bit overlong

    Summary: When Rome's pope dies of a supposed stroke and four of its priests are kidnapped, the Vatican police call in Robert Langdon and Vittoria Vetra, hoping they can help. What they discover, is that within several hours, all four of the priests will be ... read more

    Cons: Some parts are a bit implausible

  • A Suprising Sequal That Makes For Edge Of Your Seat Entertainment

    Jun 22, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: edge of your seat wondering what happens next, plot structure, Tom Hanks, Ewan McGregor
    Cons: none

    Summary: I liked the Da Vinci Code all right, but wasn't overwhelmed by it. However a friend of mine went and saw Angels and Demons and raved about how it was easier to follow and the overall plot was better. After her high marks I could not help but want to go ... read more

  • They Could've Aimed Higher Than Just "Better Than The Da Vinci Code"

    Jun 11, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some decent action sequences, pretty solid ending
    Cons: Goofy plot, turgid pacing

    Summary: Having not read either book, and having been forced to sit through the atrocious The Da Vinci Code in 2006, I had little to no impetus to check out Angels & Demons.  The reviews overall have been better, the book - I have it on ... read more

  • Angels and Demons: The High Class National Treasure

    Jun 3, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great actors, Nice landscapes, Well done visual effects
    Cons: Feels rushed at times, Suffers due to unavailability of real artworks and locations

    Summary: Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code is an exciting, mysterious read and its prequel Angels and Demons is no different.  However the movie forms of both just seem to lack something.  The acting in this film is quite good, as ... read more

  • A Poorly Written Book Makes Even Poorly Made Film

    Jun 3, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: nothing really...perhaps parts of the soundtrack?
    Cons: everything really...especially the horrible copies of master art works!

    Summary:               This film is based on the novel by Dan Brown, author of “Da Vinci Code.”  In the book series, this story precedes “Da Vinci Code,” but in the film versio ... read more

  • Angels is much better than DaVinci Code

    May 31, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The acting was great, as were the sets and the direction.
    Cons: Will inevitably spark a controversy.

    Summary: After reading the books The Davinci Code, and Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, my head filled with imaginative symbols and thoughts about possible conspiracies. When the Davinci Code came out in theatres and I found out that Tom Hanks would be cast ... read more

  • Fire and Brimstone – lots and lots of fire.

    May 29, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Characters explained what was going on.
    Cons: Fire, and more fire and still more fire.

    Summary: Ahoy, there be SPOILERS ahead! Tom Hanks plays "Robert Langdon" (from "Big", "Philadelphia"), Ewan McGregor plays "Camerlengo McKenna" (from "Moulin Rouge", "Big Fish"), Ayelet Zurer plays "Vitoria Vetra" (from "Munich"). Another main ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: plot, acting, soundtrack
    Cons: none

    Summary: Angels and Demons was so much better than the Da Vinci Code, so, so much better.  Angels and Demons had a plot you could follow without a book load of explanations.  It was a great thriller, mystery, and quest movie with religion ... read more

    Cons: Actors are flat (particularly supporting characters), plot is flat, new director needed...

    Summary: Tom Hanks is looking for something. Interrupted during his morning swim by a slick, foreign-accented agent of the Vatican, he is whisked off to the Holy City by helicopter on the trail of a holy killer. Good men are so hard to find. Of ... read more

  • Top Notch Adventure

    May 22, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Terrific action, just the right amount of humor and misdirection
    Cons: Langdon's sidekick is just that

    Summary: "Angels and Demons" is the sequel to Ron Howard's "The Da Vinci Code," in which it was "revealed" that Jesus Christ had a child or children.  I didn't see enough of "The Da Vinci Code" to review it, but the ending was OK.  I was lucky enough to ... read more

  • Angels and Demons is a whole lot better than The Da Vinci Code.

    May 20, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Really just a surprisingly fun film.
    Cons: Yeah, there are some plot holes and whatnot.

    Summary: After being relatively underwhelmed with Tim Hanks in The Da Vinci Code, I was hesitant to sign on for more symbology adventures in Angels and Demons.  Fortunately, this second Dan ... read more

  • Educated Guess: Better Than The Book

    May 20, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Better than The Da Vinci Code.
    Cons: Basically The Da Vinci Code with different window dressing.

    Summary: I read The Da Vinci Code, and it's hours of my life I'll never get back. The puzzle/conspiracy aspect of the book was well done (if ripped off from Holy Blood, Holy Grail), but Dan Brown couldn't write his way out of a wet paper bag ... read more

    May 20, 2009 by

    Pros: beautiful production values. informative. The Vatican gives it thumbs up.
    Cons: unbelievable premise. standard fare.

    Summary: I go to the movies with the hope that I'm going to have a good time. Some actors and directors give one more hope than others. The team of Ron Howard and Tom Hanks has delivered a number of my favorite movies over the years. When it came down to a choice ... read more

    May 19, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent production values, great special effects and photography, reasonably good acting and pacing.
    Cons: You have to put your brain in neutral about the science, history, or logical gaffs.

    Summary: ANGELS & DEMONS (the ampersand is part of the title of both book and movie) is either (it hardly matters) a prequel or a sequel of THE DA VINCI CODE, and like that movie is based on a Dan Brown novel, directed by Ron Howard, and stars Tom Hanks as ... read more

    Pros: Fast paced and engaging, of stand out performances from Armin Mueller-Stahl and Ewan McGregor.
    Cons: Stellan Skarsgård's leaden performance mars an important role in the film.

    Summary: Having thought that The DaVinci Code was enjoyable, but flawed, I went to see Angels & Demons with moderate expectations.  I was very pleasantly suprised to find that this movie exceeded my expectations significantly.I was particularly ... read more
