[Highly rated reviewer]Angels and Demons is the sequel to The Da Vinci Code which is also based on the novel and works of Dan Brown.
The CERN who work on experiments using antimatter through the medium of physics summon Robert Langdon the Harvard symbologist played by Tom Hanks to investigate a murder victim branded with the Illuminati ambigram and also to prevent a terrorist act against the Vatican.
Robert discovers that the Illuminati (the secret society) plan to kill four Roman Catholic cardinals and destroy St. Peter's Basilica with the stolen antimatter in the form of a bomb during a papal conclave.
This film also stars Ayelet Zurer as Vittoria Vetra who is a CERN scientist, Ewan McGregor who plays the Camerlengo Patrick McKenna and Stellan Skarsgård who plays Commander Richter the Head of the Swiss Guard.
Angels and Demons is directed by Ron Howard (formerly Richie from Happy Days).
Well worth watching !

A must for viewing.By moggie3 (4 reviews) , 20 Oct 2011I enjoyed this film immensly. Tom Hanks excellent in this what could be a difficult subject for a film. All characters were portrayed well in this action packed film. Definately worth watching.
Love itBy Parr666 (2 reviews) from Nottingham , 13 Oct 2011Love this film! loved the book more though as some things were changed in the film, but still great! :)
Shocking. There's the book, then there's the film.By Matttheplum (2 reviews) , 06 Oct 2011I give this film part of a star due to the backdrop of Rome throughout the film.
As for the film itself. If you have read the book either forget all about it or DO NOT WATCH THIS FILM. From the opening scene the film is nothing like the book and as the film progresses it just gets worse and worse.
In the end I stopped watching. You expect films to have something in common with the book, I think Rome was the only common factor in this case.
Easy Sunday night viewingBy Thehoff78 (2 reviews) , 26 Sep 2011I actually enjoyed the film. Ok the story had some gapping holes, and some of the actions by the main characters didn't make any sense, but it is what it is.
Was enjoyed after a busy weekend, when thought and attention were on the wane.
Worth WatchingBy gmecat (15 reviews) , 19 Sep 2011I really enjoyed this film. I have read the book some time ago and, unusually, I actually preferred the film.
