Langdon to the rescue once again. Without spoiling anything, he gets the job done using Dante and other artists/writers from Florence, Venice and Istanbul.
My Review: The movie followed the book for the most part. I don't remember a character named Elizabeth (Hanks love interest) in the book. I am going to guess she was a Hollywood add-in. Tom Hanks is a poor choice to play the famous professor. He is too old for the part. Langdon is supposed to be in his late thirties/forties and Hanks is pushing sixty. Despite the age, he does a decent job. But then anyone can do a decent job because Dan Brown isn't known for his complex characters. They are all two dimensional at best. But that's not why I paid 13.50 for the ticket. It's the mystery, action, and story line that keeps me glued to my seat. And Hollywood delivered. The beginning of the movie starts off with a bang and doesn't slow up until the end. I was thoroughly entertained and engrossed in the film. The settings are authentic and make me want to go on vacation to Italy and Turkey. I would have liked to see more of a back story about the character Sienna, who had a fascinating life in the book, but Hollywood barely mentioned her genius status. All in all, I highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves action. 5/5 Stars.
