Angels & Demons (2008)

Written By Awir Aditya on Saturday, August 22, 2009 | 8:28 AM


Genre: Thriller/Drama/Action/Crime/Mystery

Starring: Tom Hanks, Ewan McGregor, Ayelet Zurer

Contrary to general belief, Angels & Demons is not a continuation to The Da Vinci Code in spite of having Robert Langdon (Hanks) as a common character. A phial containing anti-matter developed at CERN, Geneva, is stolen and finds its way to Vatican City. On receiving a terror threat, Robert Langdon, in spite of having a controversial relationship with the Roman Catholic church, is called upon to decipher the meaning and implication of the threat. It is realised that four of the most likely successors to the recently deceased pope are kidnapped and will be murdered one at a time every hour, and at midnight the anti-matter phial will be used, possibly to destroy entire Rome. Langdon along with a CERN scientist Vittoria (Zurer) and Camerlengo Patrick McKenna (McGregor) have to bring back the phial and save the Vatican. The movie producers decided to stay away from the Catholic controversy it created during their previous attempt. The movie is more simple to understand and follow, and doesn't require the viewer to have a prior knowledge about Christianity. The movies final twist becomes very predictable if one simply thinks on the lines of The Da Vinci Code, due to which it loses some of the charm and mystery it manages to create.
