[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 !

Read the book but dont watch the movieBy a customer from London , 19 Sep 2009The book is awesome,similarly like The Da Vinci Code..... however the movie is boring ,exactly like the movie The Da Vinci code.
AverageBy hammer1982 (1 review) from Maidstone , 19 Sep 2009Don't get me wrong....the film itself isn't bad. It's well shot, the storyline is good and the acting is spot on...my problem is that if you've ever actually read the book, the discrepencies are far too frequent.
Obviously, when transferring a novel to film, some things will have to change to make it work, but I'm afraid the amount of differences just became ridiculously frustrating after a while. From start to finish it was just a bit to annoying for me, down to peoples names, relationships and the outcomes of the story. I didn't think this happened in the Da Vinchi Code adaptation either.
For those who have read the book, then watch the film, I hope you'll agree.
predictable, implausible but not awfulBy donnamummy (2 reviews) from Knighton , 19 Sep 2009as title said, fairly entertaining for the most part but sooo predictable from the get go and utterly implausible, a good film taken tooo far i feel
If you've read the book...By a customer from Berkhamsted , 18 Sep 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideIf you've read the book you will notice that there have been many fairly significant changes in the film. It goes wrong right at the start where the tension isn't built.. This sterile attempt does no justice to Dan's novel, nor to Rome. Rubbish continuity (it is daylight, then 2 seconds later it is nighttime) Poor casting (ewan mcgregor) Dissappointed would be understatement.
awesomeBy a customer from cornwall, england , 18 Sep 2009This film is amazing ron howard has achieved suspense with non stop action once again.
if you liked davinci code you will love this.
