When Langdon discovers 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 secret organization's most despised enemy: the Catholic Church. Langdon and Vetra will follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that mark the Vatican's only hope for survival.
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.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
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!"
What terrifying discovery would make the Vatican turn to Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks), the man who cracked history's most controversial code?
