Over the course of the three films in which Tom Hanks has played Harvard academic Dr Robert Langdon, his hair has become distinctly less floppy. Alas, the same can't be said of the dramatic tension over the course of novelist Dan Brown's stories (
The Da Vinci Code
Angels & Demons
begins with evil genius Bertrand Zobist (Ben Foster) taking his own life, leaving behind a deadly virus that's hidden in a public place. So begins the standard, pedestrian treasure hunt where we're pinballed between historic sites, with so many woozy, high-speed tracking shots you'll experience motion sickness. While Hanks is always watchable, Langdon is as interesting as watching paint dry. He has nothing personal at stake, while Felicity Jones is wasted as his sounding board. Director Ron Howard struggles to inject any urgency into proceedings, producing a Frankenstein's monster of a movie that's dead on its feet.
Robert Langdon awakes with amnesia in an Italian hospital, and is soon on the run with a beautiful doctor. Racing to stop a devastating virus, the Da Vinci Code expert suffers shocking visions as an assassin closes in. Thriller, starring Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones and Irrfan Khan.
