Experience the Adventure

There’s murder, conspiracy, riddles, time limits, antimatter, and big bangs. There’s also Tom Hanks and Ayelet Zurer. What more could you ask from a movie?

Nothing, you say? Well, Angels and Demons is the movie for you. It’s delightful entertainment full of intense action, drama, and plot twists you won’t call (unless you’ve read the book by Dan Brown).

Tom Hanks is once again Robert Langdon, the symbolist from The Da Vinci Code. He’s on a mission for the Vatican to stop the illuminati. And what a mission it is!

Paired with Vittoria Vetra (Ayelet Zurer, Vantage Point), whose mission is to find the stolen antimatter, Langdon has a dangerous, slightly gruesome, adventure through Vatican City. He faces murder, rats, possible death, and religious conspiracy on an epic scale.

Though the movie is fast-paced, there are moments of calm. There are simple moments where the audience and the actors can breathe and catch up with what’s going on. Don’t worry though, these moments aren’t off-setting to the flow. In fact, they just add to the drama because they lay on the intensity. They truly enlighten you to what’s going on and what can happen.

Unlike in The Da Vinci Code, this movie doesn’t have a Paul Bettany character who steals the show. Ewan McGregor does an epic job as Camerlengo Patrick McKenna, just as Tom Hanks makes Langdon come alive to the audience. But, there’s no Silas this time and that’s mildly disappointing.

Nonetheless, there’re big bangs and the intense drama that keeps the audience on the edge of their seat. And Hanks, McGregor, Zurer, and Skarsgard keep the movie alive.

I say Angels and Demons is a must-see movie.
