Famous symbologist Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) follows a trail of clues tied to Dante, the great medieval poet. When Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to stop a madman (Ben Foster) from unleashing a virus that could wipe out half of the world’s population. (C) Wikipedia
Inferno is an adaptation based on Dan Brown’s fourth novel about Robert Langdon and it was somehow disappointing to note it didn’t live up to my expectations. Since I haven’t read the book, I will rate it solely based on what I saw with a 2.5 stars out of 5.
I felt that the movie hasn’t sustained the momentum and fast pacing it built during its first few minutes. Most of the time, it has becoming too dragging and slow due to character and story development but it is understanding. The editing, cinematography and scoring are commendable and really good. It made you feel engaged with the characters.
However, I feel that from the 3 movies, this film isn’t an upgrade from its predecessor. For me, Angels and Demons has more effective thrilling and suspenseful scenes that really take your breath away compared to Inferno.
