Critic Reviews for Inferno

All Critics (246) | Top Critics (48) | Fresh (57) | Rotten (189)

  • Inferno is better than The Da Vinci Code or Angels & Demons, but both of those films set the bar reprehensibly low.

  • It's a lot more like a tweed-jacket version of Bond or Bourne or most any other thriller out there. But if Langdon is distinguished from the other globe-trotting saviors by his PhD, why aren't his movies smarter?

    Oct 28, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Unless you are a Dante scholar, and perhaps not even then, following Inferno is a wild goose chase - without the goose.

    Oct 28, 2016 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • Ron Howard's mostly lame adaptation of Dan Brown's wholly lame novel.

    Oct 28, 2016 | Full Review…
  • You know you've made some poor cinematic choices when you have to make Dan Brown characters less complex.

    Oct 28, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A stylish but tedious thriller that never does catch fire.

    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.

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

    I fail to see why critics hate these movies as all three films (So far) are very good but I have not read the books, The film itself is very gripping from start to finish, It's pretty easy to follow but with a film that tries to be this smart you can't have any plot holes but there are a few but nothing too major for them to spoil the movie, I loved the twists in this film and it was well acted too, It's better than The Da Vinci Code thanks to the easy to understand plot and it's better than Angels & Demons thanks to the better story, So if you're a fan of either of them then this should be on your to watch list.
