Becky and I went to see Angels & Demonslast night at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO. The Fandango website at Angels & Demons describes the movie as follows:
“When Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) discovers evidence of the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the illuminati—the most powerful underground organization in history—he also faces a deadly threat to the existence of the secret organization’s most despised enemy: the Catholic Church…”
Angels & Demons is a new thriller by Director Ron Howard and features Tom Hanks again in the second installment of the Dan Brown, writer of the DaVinci Code, flicks. I thought the first movie was terrible and rated it a Don’t Bother, along with Becky. The whole idea of a conspiracy by the Roman Catholic Church to cover up that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene was ridiculous and made for a very stupid film. I was amazed so many people liked the book, especially if you know anything about Jesus’ mission to Earth as a Jew, not as a Roman and Church history.
Needless to say, I had really low expectations for this film. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Angels & Demons delivered with plenty of action and suspense as the audience went inside the halls of Catholicism once again to solve a series of murders and cover ups. The story was entertaining as religion and science battled for the minds of the faithful.
The story was pretty wild and it’s very fast paced, but it’s also easy to get lost if you don’t pay close attention. There are a couple parts of the film that are very graphic and a few other scenes that are far fetched, but if you can get past those parts it’s a very well done movie. It’s a bit deep with a bunch of characters and definitely a thinking type thriller.
Becky totally disagreed with me on this one though. She hated it, was totally bored, couldn’t follow the jumping around of the movie and would probably rate it a Don’t Bother, but decided to give it a Rental rating. I guess this means that you’ll either like this movie or totally hate it.
