Descripción del producto
Robert Langdon entdeckt Beweise, dass die mächtigste Untergrundbewegung der Geschichte, ein uralter konspirativer Geheimbund, den man als "Die Illuminati" kennt, wiederauferstanden ist. Kurz darauf wird er damit konfrontiert, dass die katholische Kirche, der zutiefst verhasste Erzfeind der Illuminaten, einer tödlichen, existenzvernichtenden Bedrohung ausgesetzt ist. Nachdem Langdon herausgefunden hat, dass eine unaufhaltbare Illuminati-Zeitbombe tickt, die noch am gleichen Tag zu explodieren droht, fliegt er unverzüglich nach Rom, wo er sich mit der schönen und rätselhaften italienischen Wissenschaftlerin Vittoria Vetra zusammentut. Gemeinsam machen sie sich auf zu einer atemlosen, actionreichen Hetzjagd quer durch die ewige Stadt, durch versiegelte Krypten, gefährliche Katakomben, verlassene Kathedralen und sogar mitten hinein ins Herz des geheimsten und best bewachten Grabgewölbes der Welt. Langdon und Vetra folgen einer 400 Jahre alten Spur altertümlicher Symbole, auf der die einzige Hoffnung für das Überleben des Vatikans ruht.

Tom Hanks is superb as always, racing from historical hot spot to hot spot as he follows a hidden path across Rome. The biggest thrills are when he takes something arcane or cryptic, and provides a new way to look at it so that you can almost see the door unlocking before you. It works best when the director shows us the puzzle first, like a good magician, and it's much more fun to have Hanks come in and offer the solution. Fortunately, this is most of the time.
It works not so great when we have Hanks explaining stuff to us as we race down the crowded streets of Rome, on our way to stop the next assassination attempt. There's a whole angle involving the selection of the next Pope, and the kidnapping of the four leading candidates, that propels Hanks forward. This is compounded by a truly over-the-top "God Particle" device that threatens to prematurely punch the city's ticket to Heaven, and its disposal in the critical moment is even more outrageous. And that's before the twist ending.
But get Tom Hanks and his pretty scientist companion alone in a dark chapel, hunting for hidden insignias and secret crypts, and Angels and Demons turns into highly compelling entertainment. It doesn't court the same controversy as The DaVinci Code, and therefore is allowed to stand on its own as pure entertainment, and it is top notch filmmaking.
Viewing this film is akin to watching a television show like, say, "24". You don't sit back and nitpick every plot point...you just go with the flow and (more often than not) get caught up in the emotional drama. If you are able to do that, this movie will be very enjoyable for you.
As I look back on the plot, I just watched the film less then a week ago and I'm still a bit shady as to what exactly was going on...something about ancient Illuminati symbols, the Catholic Church, the election of a new Pope, and underground experiments with the highly explosive "dark matter" compound. Much like in "The DaVinci Code", everything flies by in such a hurry that it is a bit difficult to digest. However, due to a great screenplay and competent acting, you will likely find yourself sucked into the whole experience.
I cannot speak for the movie's accuracy with relevance to the original novel, as it was so long ago that I read it, but perhaps a bit of a departure wouldn't have been a bad thing, as don't most entertainment connoisseurs always say that the book is better than the movie anyway?!
Thus, much like the page-turning appeal of the Dan Brown novel of the same name (where you just HAVE to read "one more chapter" before turning out the lights), this film does the exact same thing in cinematic fashion. When looked back upon, the pieces may not fit together or even seem downright ludicrous, but it was one heck of a ride!
Angels and Demons does this perfectly. Still a great story line, but tons of action, and a great score.
I left the theater after seeing this with a huge smile on my face. In plain words...
It was awesome!
“Angels & Demons” is more enjoyable than the Ron Howard/Tom Hanks predecessor, the colossally successful “The Da Vinci Code.” In a reversal of the chronology of the Dan Brown novels, “Angels” comes after the “Code”. The movie is a faced paced thriller. Hanks must find the villain before midnight. Starting at 8 pm a man will be murdered every hour. At midnight a bomb will rub out Vatican City. Hanks must hurry.
I read the novel recently, so surprises were out of the question for me. I was able to concentrate on the beauty of the sets and the wonderful quick timing of the action scenes. Director Ron Howard, now a well tried professional with 19 films to his credit, had a budget of $150 million to work with. Boy did he spend the money wisely. The interior scenes of Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome are lavish enough for the most eye greedy. “The Da Vinci Code” brought in a staggering $758 million world wide. “Angels” is behind that with only $414 million so far, but it is still in theaters. It ranked #8 this week after five weeks in general release.
Hanks is one of our best loved movie stars. He is at his considerable best in this film. But for me it is really director Ron Howard’s film. His sets are stunning. The photography is inspired. And the movie has those little details that are so important to the movie buff. In one instance rival groups of protesters argue with each other in St. Peters square. It is a realistic touch that lesser directors omit.
This film is set largely within the most holy of sites in Christendom. Matters of faith are dealt with dignity, complexity and sympathy. This alone sets this film apart in today’s Hollywood.
This PG 13 film lasts 2 hrs and 20 minutes. It earns a strong 3 and a half saw blades.
