Cinema Clips: Inferno

Posted By on Tue, Nov 8, 2016 at 9:00 AM



This is easily the worst of the Robert Langdon series, a series that was already pretty terrible in that both The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons blew ass.

Ron Howard once again directs Tom Hanks as Langdon, and this series needed to be put down after the first installment.

When Langdon wakes up in a hospital room, with a bullet scratch on his head and loss of memory, Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) is there to help out. Then, somebody starts toward Langdon’s hospital room guns blazing, and the so-called adventure begins.

Langdon is having hallucinations about something akin to Dante’s “Inferno” while trying to work his way through amnesia. He’s in Italy, and he doesn’t know why, but Sienna, for reasons unknown, is going to stay by his side until he works things out. Langdon must race against time (and solve puzzles!) in order to save the world.

The main “puzzle” Langdon has to solve this time is where a doomsday bomb containing a virus that will wipe out the majority of the earth’s population has been planted. If he doesn’t find the Make Everybody Sick bomb, it will be an apocalypse like no other. Gee, I wonder if he’ll find it? I wonder if the whole world will die in a Ron Howard movie?

Talk about your total lack of suspense in a film.
