Angels & Demons is housewife-targeted holiday read nonsense, given a Hollywood spit 'n' shine and go-faster stripes by a once-burned, twice-shy director desperate to make amends.

In many respects, Angels & Demons is a pretty straightforward terrorist-hostage film.

Taking a hint from past mistakes, Ron Howard and Tom Hanks return to the fanciful historical styling's of Dan Brown to create a much more entertaining and thrilling mystery, as science and religion, martyrs and heretics clash in Angels and Demons.

Buena historia policiaca, donde el tema religioso lejos de servir de polémica a la turba enardecida, es simplemente el pretexto perfecto para generar un dinámico thriller que no le pide nada a una aventura del 007.

It appears that Ron Howard knew that he had to change the way everything was done in the previous film, and sending Tom Hanks to the barber was a very good start.

...too long and ponderous for its own good, but Howard and Co. gloss over or eliminate most of the more outlandish howlers in Brown's preposterous story.

Call it the 'National Treasure' for adults: harmless, but engaging fun that even Catholics shouldn't get too worked up about.

It's enjoyable, toothless, and a disposable smartypants hero movie. These are rare enough that they deserve attention.

For all the hype and hurrah, Angels & Demons is a tame thriller, requiring several leaps of faith."

As amusing melodrama, it's enjoyable flapdoodle.

Some parts of this movie come across as totally unbelievable, but it contains enough excitement and stunning cinematography to make it worth seeing.

A luridly compelling yarn that, for the purposes of the multiplex if not the pulpit or the laboratory, effectively bridges belief and reason.

Antimatter and crosses. Science and religion. Angels and demons. You'll never guess, but it's more of a gray area than black and white. And for many of us, it's as close to Vatican City as we're going to get.

It's a noisy ride and what you're looking at is pure hokum but for non-believers like me, there's more fun to be had from this express tour of Brown's obsessions than there was in The Da Vinci Code's ponderous progress.

May 17, 2009's fun to watch Tom Hanks hoof it all over Vatican City for two hours, trying to save some cardinal from being licked to death by Illuminati puppies, or whatever...
