Angels and Demons re-teams director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks for the sequel to their international blockbuster adaptation of Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code. Although the book Angels and Demons was written before the novel The Da Vinci Code, the movie transpires after the events of the earlier movie. Hanks stars as professor Robert Langdon, the most respected symbologist in the United States, who uses his knowledge in order to decode a symbol on the skin of a murder victim. The clues put him on the trail of an international conspiracy involving the Catholic Church. Ewan McGregor… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Why are quality pros like Howard and Hanks involved in this enterprise? Do they need the money? Angels and Demons is sure to make plenty. But their artistic souls will do hard time in purgatory for it."
‑ Jonathan F. Richards,
"We're left to wonder, who in the Vatican can really be trusted? And also, will Ron Howard continue to make movies about a character who comes alive on the page, but sputters on the big screen?"
‑ Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies
"Angels & Demons is housewife-targeted holiday read nonsense, given a Hollywood spit 'n' shine and go-faster stripes by a once-burned, twice-shy director desperate to make amends."
‑ Ali Gray,
"Taking a hint from past mistakes, Ron Howard and Tom Hanks return to the fanciful historical styling's of Dan Brown to create a much more entertaining and thrilling mystery, as science and religion, martyrs and heretics clash in Angels and Demons."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"Buena historia policiaca, donde el tema religioso lejos de servir de polémica a la turba enardecida, es simplemente el pretexto perfecto para generar un dinámico thriller que no le pide nada a una aventura del 007."
‑ Luis Martinez, Cinenganos
"At one point Hanks can be glimpsed gasping for air, mid-endless-sentence. Has there ever been a flatter movie character played by a more innately likable star?"
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"If these movies made any damned sense, the public response might be no more than a yawn."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"In many respects, Angels & Demons is a pretty straightforward terrorist-hostage film."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Tom cracks the code, again."
‑ Don Groves,
"doesn't provide any coherent vision of the world"
‑ Dragan Antulov,
"This is not a good movie."
‑ Ben Lyons, At the Movies
"Angels and Demons is an OK action film, but only the humorless will find it heretical -- or educational."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"If The Da Vinci Code was characterized by people sitting at tables and talking, then this sequel-set film of the prequel book is characterized by people walking briskly and talking."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Angels & Demons isn't the complete shambles a lot of people wanted it to be. But then that probably isn't the greatest endorsement either."
‑ Sam Bathe, Fan The Fire
"It appears that Ron Howard knew that he had to change the way everything was done in the previous film, and sending Tom Hanks to the barber was a very good start."
‑ Brian Holcomb,
