About the Movie
When Robert Langdon discovers evidence of the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati - the most powerful underground organization in history - he also faces a deadly threat to the existence of the secret organization's most despised enemy: the Catholic Church. When Langdon learns that the clock is ticking on an unstoppable Illuminati time bomb, he jets to Rome, where he joins forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist. Embarking on a nonstop, action-packed hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even to the heart of the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra will follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that mark the Vatican's only hope for survival.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Ron Howard's follow-up to the stiff, stately 2006 The Da Vinci Code, might have been classy, entertaining junk -- if only it were entertaining.
Rotten: Presumably in response to criticism that The Da Vinci Code was static and talky, director Ron Howard has made Angels & Demons frantic %u2014 and, well, talky
Rotten: If these movies made any damned sense, the public response might be no more than a yawn.
Fresh: Angels & Demons has some exciting sequences, a spectacular ending with a terrific twist and a grounding in the debate about science versus religion that could hardly be more timely.
OMGGG I LOVE THIS MOVIE!! I WISH I COULD BUY IT BUT WHATEV! ANYWAYS EVERYINE SHOIULD BUY THIS MOVIE! ITSS SOO EDUCATIONALL! AND PLUS ITS ACTION PACKED TOO!
Another Hollywood movie....
I went to see this movie with low expectations but I ended up liking it for personal reasons and not because the movie is great. Tne story is acceptible, and the acting is OK. I was pulled into the mystery of the Illuminati and their plan to destroy the foundations of christianity but as I watched the film I felt that there was something missing. I realized what was missing with the twist at the end that I didnt know if it was coming or not. Well, when the "twist" finally came I wasnt very impressed and it was very comic like and unreal. At the end I felt like I was watching a different movie.
The reason I do and will recommend this movie is becasue the very fact that it shows one of my favorite countries in the world. I myself, have not been to Italy, but man, it felt like I was in the very Vatican City as I watched. They show the Capella Sistine with great detail of Michaelangelo's world famous Genesis Cealing. They take you through many great italian monuments and even though I knew that most of the scenes that involve the Vatican City are CGI, (because the crew did not have permision to film on location due to the heavy critizisism against the Catholic chuch that was emphysized in The Davinci Code) I still was amazed by the wonderful scenery. The film also introduces most American viwers to the Catholic church and their life style, which I find very fasinating since I am a catholic myself. I did not know that there are steps that the church must follow after the death of a Pope, to select another one.
Since the film, Da Vinci Code, was released the whole Book controversy ended. Thats why this one did not make a lot of money, and because of Ron Howard. He is a great director but only when he wants to be. I honestly think that he is the wrong choice for this movies, both the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demonds. The books were made to keeps us thinking after ending the books, but the movies represent somethingt else... The movies are ok but not worth buying, I will only buy this one because like I mentioned before, for personal reasons.
