Customer Reviews

I recommend watching this movie and enjoying it for what it is.

First of all this is not a film for Ron Howard; he is simply too inclined to gloss over important elements like screenplay and dialog.

I received it, and the other purchases, on time with no problem.

Other reviewers have adequately commented on the motion picture itself. This review pertains to the so-called Two-Disc Extended Edition. While most two-disc editions provide the viewer with hours of additional features on the making the motion picture and the cast and crew, this edition provides the viewer with only three ten-minute featurettes, that easily could have been included on the feature disc, and about 20 "previews" for other motion pictures. At typically a 50% premium in price over the single-disc version, the three featurettes are not worth the price. Buy the single-disc version instead and enjoy the movie.

This is one of those movies that was truly better than its predecessor. The good thing is you don't need to see Davinci Code to understand this movie. Its like Ron Howard took it to heart what people were saying regarding the DaVinci code, it was good but needed some more action to keep you interested.

Angels and Demons does this perfectly. Still a great story line, but tons of action, and a great score.

I left the theater after seeing this with a huge smile on my face. In plain words...

It was awesome!

I rememeber when I first saw The DaVinchi Code in the theatre. I thought the movie was good but it didn't do the book justice. I thought the book was far better. Then Angels and Demons came out in theatres and was leary about going to seeing it because of the first movie. But I did go to see Angels and Demons and I loved it. The movie had my full and complete attention for the entire two and a half hours. In fact, I loved the movie so much, I walked with a smile on my face and bought another ticket and walked right back and in and saw it again!

This movie has it all. It follows the book but strays when necessary, but not to the point of where it ruins the movie. It is chalk full of action and suspence, a total on the edge of your seat movie. The choice of music complements the movie beautifully. I could go on and on.. but one of the things that really made me catch my breath was the portrayal of the passion and history of catholicism. The cardinals in conclave, climbing the stairs to enter the Sistine Chapel in the Apostolic Palace, St Peter's tomb, exc.

I highly recommend this movie. No movie since had captivated me in a way such as this one. Enjoy!

Released in 2009, 'Angels and Demons' is director Ron Howard's second cinematic installment chronicling the adventures of Harry Langdon (Tom Hanks), symbolist extraordinaire. As in the 'Da Vinci Code' the bad guy is once again ensconced within Vatican walls and protected by churchly robes akin to wolves in sheeps clothing. Do you think maybe Dan Brown has an axe to grind? Be that as it may a movie is modern storytelling and the important question is did you enjoy the tale?

I found the film somewhat a disappointment. It was a case of alot of glitz but no substance. The production values are first rate with an accomplished cast to match and the central character Harry Langdon is more complex and fascinating than, dare I say it, Indiana Jones (did I just hear thunder from on high). Yet with that said I must also say that I never got caught up in the story. There was no emotional connection, no pounding heartbeat, no anticipation of what was going to happen next. In the final analysis I felt cheated and I'm still wondering where are the angels and demons mentioned in the title? If they had stayed with the European title, 'Illuminati' at least it would have been an honest reflection of what the film was about.

This movie was completely awful. I have already got over the fact that Hanks should not be playing Langdon and that a lot was going to be cut but I never expected the movie to be this bad. I loved the book. I could not put the book down. Here are some of the things the movie is missing:

1. There is no Max Kohler in the movie. AT ALL
2. There is no Gunther Glick or his camera woman. Or any scenes that involve what they do

Here are some big differences:
1. In the movie the Olivetti contacts Langdon and flys him to Vatican City in a Vatican aircraft
2. In the movie Olivetti is not head of the Vatican Guards... He is a regular police officer
3. Vittoria had a huge team working on the antimater.
4. Vittoria found her father dead... They do not even really explain that it is her father.. and they do not show he is branded
5. They do not mention the illuminati diamond, nor do you see it.
6. They do not talk about the IVF or The chamerlengo's mother
7. Baggia survives

I could keep going but I think that you get the picture. It is extremely disappointing.

Ron Howard's new film is set mainly in Rome. However, the movie starts off at CERN, which is the largest particle accelerator in the world located in the suburbs of Geneva on the Franco-Swiss boarder. Anti-matter is stolen from facility which will supposedly blow up once the batteries of its container die out. In real life, over ten years, the facility has only made enough anti-matter to light a light bulb for about three minutes. So as long as we remain ignorant of this little detail we're in for a bit of a heart pumping ride, sort of. This film looks great, but it becomes a bit tiresome as the cops, and Tom Hank's character (Robert Langdon), are always just a little late in the pursuit of the killer. And unfortunately, the danger doesn't seem so much for them, as for the Cardinals, who we are never made to empathize with anyhow. This may be the real flaw of the movie. If there was more inherent danger to Robert, or those close to him, then this film might actually be suspenseful. When the killer does meet Robert head on, in a basement, the killer simply says that his business is not with Robert, as long as Robert doesn't pursue him. That's a sure way to deflate any suspense from a movie! If it wasn't for the great scenery and wonderful direction it doesn't seem like there would actually be too much here to rave about. The movie feels contrived, and silly, with its treasure chest like chase around Rome after an anonymous killer.
