Based on the bestselling novel by Dan Brown, Angels & Demons follows Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) as he uncovers the perilous secrets of the Illuminati. Caught in a conflict between science and religion that threatens the Vatican City, will the clues lead Robert to the hidden weapon he seeks?
A new Pope is to be chosen. There are 4 candidates. The Illuminati want to make the decision themselves...
As the prospective candidates are killed off one by one, the killer lets it be known that he is from the Illuminati, but what do they want? Renowned symbologist Robert Langdon is called upon to investigate, clues leading him to the Vatican and on a quest for a massively destructive weapon.
Make sure you check out Dan Brown's latest Robert Langdon novel, The Lost Symbol, set to be adapted into a blockbuster movie sometime in 2012!
The film zooms around the city, as Langdon follows clues embedded in art, architecture, and the very bone structure of the Vatican. The cast is terrific, including Ewan McGregor, who is memorable as a young protg of the late pontiff, and who seems to challenge the common wisdom of the Conclave just by being 40 years younger than his fellows when he lectures for church reform. Stellan Skarsgard is excellent as a gruff commander of the Swiss Guard, who may or may not have thrown in with the Illuminati. But the real star of the film is Rome, and its High Church gorgeousness, with lush cinematography by Salvatore Totino, who renders the real sky above the Vatican, in a cataclysmic event, with the detail and majesty of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. --A.T.
