DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Suspense Thriller - This is sequel to The DaVinci Code is less talky and more action-oriented, so it has some wider appeal beyond the older adult target. This is basically a one-man show for Tom Hanks. Some violent content makes the film too intense for children, who would likely be bored as a whole anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average If there's something to appreciate about Angels & Demons, it's the cheesy absurdity of the final 40 minutes.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good All of this happens at breakneck speed, with little subtlety, but with fabulous production values.

USA Today Full Review
Average Angels doesn't know when to quit: Just when you think it's over, it continues, like the franchise based on Brown's books.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 161 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! All ages, both males and females LOVED "ANGELS & DEMONS." As usual, the critics are way off on this one. When only a very small percentage rate a movie below average and over half rate it "Excellent" or "Fantastic," you've got a "MUST SEE MOVIE!"


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
What terrifying discovery would make the Vatican turn to Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks), the man who cracked history's most controversial code? When Langdon finds evidence of the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati - the most powerful underground organization in history - he also faces a deadly threat to the existence of the Illuminati's most despised enemy: the Catholic Church. Upon learning that the clock is ticking on an unstoppable Illuminati time bomb, Langdon is recruited to travel to Rome, where he joins forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist. Embarking on a nonstop, action-packed hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even to the heart of the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra will follow the 400-year-old Path of Illumination that marks the Vatican's only hope for survival.
