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.

I bought this solely for the bookends. When I saw some of the marketing and stills for the movie, I saw this beautiful angel/demon hybrid statue. I thought it would be cool if one could buy that in some form. Well, that form came in the form of these bookends, and boy are they gorgeous.

I currently have Think Geek's Portal Bookends, for my modern-looking bedroom. For my 18th-Century styled living room, I wanted something that looked classy, worn, that looked like it had some history to them. Then I discovered this Angels & Demons gift set. I bought it immediately.

The bookends are heavy enough; I wasn't expecting the weight of granite or anything, but they do their job in holding books upright. It's some kind of heavy or weighted plastic. The paint job is done to look like they're old, worn statues. It is numbered on the bottom to let you know they are limited.

Oh, and the movie is included, but you should really read the Angels & Demons: Illustrated Edition, instead of watching the movie; so much more fun to read.

If you want some nice bookends get this today. Recommended.

Angels & Demons

“Angels & Demons” is more enjoyable than the Ron Howard/Tom Hanks predecessor, the colossally successful “The Da Vinci Code.” In a reversal of the chronology of the Dan Brown novels, “Angels” comes after the “Code”. The movie is a faced paced thriller. Hanks must find the villain before midnight. Starting at 8 pm a man will be murdered every hour. At midnight a bomb will rub out Vatican City. Hanks must hurry.
I read the novel recently, so surprises were out of the question for me. I was able to concentrate on the beauty of the sets and the wonderful quick timing of the action scenes. Director Ron Howard, now a well tried professional with 19 films to his credit, had a budget of $150 million to work with. Boy did he spend the money wisely. The interior scenes of Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome are lavish enough for the most eye greedy. “The Da Vinci Code” brought in a staggering $758 million world wide. “Angels” is behind that with only $414 million so far, but it is still in theaters. It ranked #8 this week after five weeks in general release.
Hanks is one of our best loved movie stars. He is at his considerable best in this film. But for me it is really director Ron Howard’s film. His sets are stunning. The photography is inspired. And the movie has those little details that are so important to the movie buff. In one instance rival groups of protesters argue with each other in St. Peters square. It is a realistic touch that lesser directors omit.
This film is set largely within the most holy of sites in Christendom. Matters of faith are dealt with dignity, complexity and sympathy. This alone sets this film apart in today’s Hollywood.
This PG 13 film lasts 2 hrs and 20 minutes. It earns a strong 3 and a half saw blades.

Much like the Dan Brown novel that this movie was based on, there is a relatively simple formula to be followed for enjoyment: Suspend belief, enjoy thoroughly!

Viewing this film is akin to watching a television show like, say, "24". You don't sit back and nitpick every plot point...you just go with the flow and (more often than not) get caught up in the emotional drama. If you are able to do that, this movie will be very enjoyable for you.

As I look back on the plot, I just watched the film less then a week ago and I'm still a bit shady as to what exactly was going on...something about ancient Illuminati symbols, the Catholic Church, the election of a new Pope, and underground experiments with the highly explosive "dark matter" compound. Much like in "The DaVinci Code", everything flies by in such a hurry that it is a bit difficult to digest. However, due to a great screenplay and competent acting, you will likely find yourself sucked into the whole experience.

I cannot speak for the movie's accuracy with relevance to the original novel, as it was so long ago that I read it, but perhaps a bit of a departure wouldn't have been a bad thing, as don't most entertainment connoisseurs always say that the book is better than the movie anyway?!

Thus, much like the page-turning appeal of the Dan Brown novel of the same name (where you just HAVE to read "one more chapter" before turning out the lights), this film does the exact same thing in cinematic fashion. When looked back upon, the pieces may not fit together or even seem downright ludicrous, but it was one heck of a ride!
