Me and my sister went to see “Angels & Demons” the new Tom Hanks flick last night. Contrary to what’s being reported by the likes of Bill Donahue of the Catholic League, the film is not anti-Catholic.
The story evolves around Professor Langdon (Tom Hanks revises his role from The DaVinci Code) and he’s summond by church officials to go to The Vatican in Rome to help solve the mystery of the abduction of four Cardinals who are in line for Pope after his holiness dies. Being a professor of symbology, we are lead through a series of twists and turns as Langdon unravels the puzzle of where the Cardinals are being held and where they will be killed. He must get to them before that happens.
There is also a sub-plot to find the missing anti-matter that was stolen from the underground physics lab in Switzerland. It is believed the Illuminati have returned and plan to use it to destroy the Vatican.
Good film. I give it 4 starz
