The Angels & Demons reviews have arrived. Is it a lot of nicom-pope?
Whereas The Da Vinci Code undermined the truth on which Catholic Church is based, this time Robert Langdon is working to save the Catholic Church from destruction, so why there would be any controversy about the film is beyond me.
But does it finally answer the BIG question – Why did God create dinosaurs, and then kill them all, and are they in heaven? Here’s what the movie critics are saying -
“Angels & Demons gives top priority to the story’s beat-the-clock thriller elements. Less turgid and aggravating than its predecessor, this cleverly produced melodrama remains hamstrung by novelist’s Dan Brown’s laborious connect-the-dots plotting …Hanks is kept in motion so much, there’s hardly time for characterization as such.”
“Angels & Demons is at least more entertaining than the dreary, talky Da Vinci Code… but it’s still tosh. …material as insane as this cries out for a crackpot visionary like Dario Argento or Richard Stanley.”
“If you’ve read the book, you’ll merely be confused. If you haven’t, you’ll think Tom Hanks is speaking Latin. …characters are constantly telling each other things they should already know, translating foreign words into English in the middle of conversations, and then explaining everything again.”
Angels & Demons currently holds a 41% rating on Rotten Tomatoes from 133 reviews, compared to 24% for The Da Vinci Code.
