Tom Hanks reprises his role as symbologist (how can i get that job?) Robert Langdon. This time the supreme church of Rome, the Vatican needs his help in solving the kidnapping of four cardinals. One of which may become the new pope.
It's a thrill ride of a movie that mixes a little bit of fact with a whole lot of fiction. Because of this the movie has had some controversy in religious circles. But we all know that kind of attention just makes people want to see it all the more.
Personally, it's just a fun film to watch and it is a well written thriller with a good plot twist. I think I mentioned in the Da Vinci Code, that Hank's character was rather bland and it's the same for this movie. He just kinda runs around Rome pointing and shouting "This way!"
But I think that is just the personality of the character he is playing, and therefore he makes an excellent professor. Check out the diabolical and angelic Angels and Demons!
