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!

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.

Angels and Demons tantalizes us with an ancient story of awesome secrets buried within the depths of Vatican City. It also contains a modern day conspiracy theory, complete with guns, car bombs, and double agents. I get why the political intrigue is there. You need some sort of clock ticking for these things to generate excitement. But so help me, I wish we could get rid of the gunmen, the security tapes, and the nuclear devices and just follow this agnostic professor as he unlocks a puzzle from the distant past.

Tom Hanks is superb as always, racing from historical hot spot to hot spot as he follows a hidden path across Rome. The biggest thrills are when he takes something arcane or cryptic, and provides a new way to look at it so that you can almost see the door unlocking before you. It works best when the director shows us the puzzle first, like a good magician, and it's much more fun to have Hanks come in and offer the solution. Fortunately, this is most of the time.

It works not so great when we have Hanks explaining stuff to us as we race down the crowded streets of Rome, on our way to stop the next assassination attempt. There's a whole angle involving the selection of the next Pope, and the kidnapping of the four leading candidates, that propels Hanks forward. This is compounded by a truly over-the-top "God Particle" device that threatens to prematurely punch the city's ticket to Heaven, and its disposal in the critical moment is even more outrageous. And that's before the twist ending.

But get Tom Hanks and his pretty scientist companion alone in a dark chapel, hunting for hidden insignias and secret crypts, and Angels and Demons turns into highly compelling entertainment. It doesn't court the same controversy as The DaVinci Code, and therefore is allowed to stand on its own as pure entertainment, and it is top notch filmmaking.

I bought this only because I read the back of the DVD and it sounded interesting and it was on sale. Little did I know how much I would enjoy this movie. This was a non stop action/thinking man' picture.
Take the best elements of an action film,mix it up with the best moments of National Treasure or the 1990's Mummy series with Brendan Fraser along with some horror elements & POOF! you get a great movie.
Tom Hanks was brilliant in this, in fact the entire cast was tremendous. Hanks character as Robert Langdon as a character that we as viewers can root for. For me it was a rare thing in today's movie to actually like the character and root for him to stop the evil doings.
The story has Langdon tracking down an evil society known as the Illuminati who are murdering 4 Cardinals for the sake of religion, sin and God. It was a thrill ride as Langdon goes from one Church to another in pursuit, going through catacombs, crypts, following signs to track the group down.
It was very , VERY suspenseful, non stop & just a lot of fun to watch. The gore pieces were really well done. One scene with rats reminded me of a movie called Virgin of Nuremberg. It wasnt gory just have gore, it was more of style like Dario Argento used to do. It was also refreshing to have a man and woman work together and not have a romantic interest. It was also refreshing to see a more mature picture or a film where characters have that 'been there,done that' attitude with corny dialog. It wasn't tongue in cheek (thank God)
Now I will say I haven't read the book as I am more of a movie watcher so I can not compare the movie to the book. For me as a movie this was superior entertainment - . From a movie standpoint, I thoroughly enjoyed this - kudos to Ron Howard
