Hanks's Langdon still barely draws breath without waffling the same expository gobbledegook that made The Da Vinci Code such a plodding experience, but this time he does more than just walk and talk - he spouts and sprints!

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.

If The Da Vinci Code was characterized by people sitting at tables and talking, then this sequel-set film of the prequel book is characterized by people walking briskly and talking.

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.

Angels & Demons isn't the complete shambles a lot of people wanted it to be. But then that probably isn't the greatest endorsement either.

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.

If 'the edge of your seat' is the place where you don't have to think, then Angels & Demons, I'm delighted and surprised to say, will take you there.

It [has] the sort of exposition that gives exposition a bad name.

Angels and Demons is a lot like Limbo, a place that exists between cinematic heaven and hell where the audience is suspended for two and a half hours.

Is mediocrity a sin? If it is, then Ron Howard and Tom Hanks should start the novenas now, because they're going to catch holy heck the next time they go to confession.

Why are quality pros like Howard and Hanks involved in this enterprise? Do they need the money? Angels and Demons is sure to make plenty. But their artistic souls will do hard time in purgatory for it.
June 12, 2009
...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.

There is little in the way of excitement. There is, however, plenty of ponderous hemming and hawing about the role of the Vatican in a forward-thinking society, and a host of supporting players whose intentions remain murky until the big revelation.
