Way back at the end of October my husband and I went to see “Inferno” with some friends.
I had been a fan of both “The Da Vinci Code” and “Angels and Demons” so I was looking forward to seeing this movie. The movie was entertaining from start to finish but it was definitely the weakest entry into this series. There was nothing major that was wrong with this movie but it did feel like there was something missing. Maybe it lacked the excitement and religious intrigue of “The Da Vinci Code”. Perhaps it’s that we now know that movie is going to be a puzzle and we already know where half of the puzzle pieces are going to go which makes figuring things out much easier than it was with the previous two movies.
Tom Hanks is once again very effective as Robert Langdon.
His performance is everything that we have grown to love about him over the years. Felicity Jones is very good in her role as is Ben Foster.
There were two things that made this movie more enjoyable for me personally than the first two movies. The first is that I have traveled to Europe five times since “Angels and Demons” came out so I felt like I could really appreciate European locations more than I did before.
I also enjoyed thinking about the moral questions that that villain puts forth for the audience. It basically boils down to if it is okay to destroy the village in order to save it.
The movie quickly disappeared from theaters but is worth a view at home if you’re looking for a nice thriller that will entertain you from start to finish.
