Critics Consensus

Senselessly frantic and altogether shallow, Inferno sends the Robert Langdon trilogy spiraling to a convoluted new low.

Audience Reviews for Inferno

The third film of the Langdon trilogy starts out a bit messy, mirroring the protagonist's lack of memory, but soon finds its footing. What follows is a fast, breathless riddle hunt through several European cities, Florence getting the most attention )and beautifully detailed so). That doesn't always make sense when you take a step back and think about it. but is pretty damn entertaining and offers quite a few surprises. The showdown plays out rather weirdly, though.

An enjoyable action flick, but not as smart as it think it is nor as smart as the audience might hope for!

With some of the least clever puzzles in the Brown oeuvre, "Inferno" proves that even hell can be made boring.

A movie so fast paced and rushed that it almost doesn't give us time to realize how ludicrous the plot is and how little sense it makes, with so many holes and inconsistencies, a lot of empty exposition and even Langdon constantly suffering from laughable "flashback crisis."
