    I like Dan Brown and have read many of his novels. When it comes to Hollywood converting a good tale into a movie, many times these folks leave me flat and this is one of those times. While it holds true to most of the original story line, IMHO this adaption is modeled more after a "ride on the coat tails of an established franchise" rather than making a quality film. It is too bad that this series took the RFC [reach for the cash if you don't know what this abbreviation means] turn and I suspect that this may be the last of this series we will see. The actors try to do their best but behind their efforts you can feel the bean counters cutting here and trimming there to "maximize profits." Tom Hanks cannot be blamed for this; its just the typical and unfortunate road a successful series takes. Even the Star Trek series did this just to name one other [I can hear the flames now coming from die hard Trekkies of which I consider myself to be one]. So for casual entertainment, you could buy this providing that you do not expect too much more than just mindless entertainment. I did fall asleep so you may find it another movie from which insomniacs could recover. But to think that this film will win any respectable awards would be IMHO stretching it. Three stars is generous but I give the nod to the performers who at least *tried* to maintain their integrity.

    This is the third film in the Robert Langdon series. You should know what the film will be like by now. However unlike the first two, thisnone doesn't focus so much on religion. Only Dante's Inferno which is the H word (BB won't let me say it). But even then it's only the image, not the idea. Some of the supporting cast is great and some are just...there. Tom Hanks is great as always, but the way the movie begins, it's hard to forge an emotional attachment with him. That may be due to the director's choice of wanting the audience to piece everything together with Langdon as the film goes along but it could have been done better since it's jarring and comes all of a sudden. The cinematography is great and the score for the most part is too. There are some pieces of music that seem too much. Overall you know what you're getting into if you decide to watch it. And at 2 hours long, it's the shortest of the three. But when you watch it, there are certain things that are introduced that are never brought up ever again which could have been cut out (especially a scene involving coffee). The movie slows down at times and it can get very boring and the plot seems too convoluted and crowded at times but as stated it isn't terrible or even bad. Just okay.

    This movie follows along the path of The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons. It is feast for the eyes and the mind. I have listened to the book (on disc). Then watched the video. The visuals really come into play if you watch with the sound turned down low or even off. This is truly a stepping off point on an adventure too get you lost in their world for a few hours. All those places built hundreds and thousands of years ago, still standing today. Both beauty and craftsmanship. All done without electricity. Recorded now in a story (fact or fiction) one version of making fact and fantasy fit the existing remains of a time long since past. The story line continues. After you watch it the first time; then watch it again, only do it quietly with the sound off and see where it takes you (in your minds eye). Very glad we added it too our collection.

    If you enjoyed Angels & Demons and The DaVinci Code you will probably enjoy Inferno. This is not the best of the Robert Langdon series. I tend to like most Ron Howard directed movies but, this one is not up to par with the rest. The two previous movies I enjoyed the adventure and the mystery. Inferno begins with what seems as though the world is against the Tom Hanks character with is a departure from Angels and DaVinci. This made Inferno not of the same type of movie. This uncomfortable beginning made for a very uncomfortable to watch movie and not what I expected. It was interesting to watch but ranks lower on my enjoyed scale.

    I've enjoyed the Dan Brown films with Tom Hanks as symbologist Robert Langdon. I must admit, I was more a fan of the first two. They seemed more connected as far as a story line. I haven't read the book that "Inferno" was based on and found myself having a difficult time following the story - who's the good guy, who's the bad guy, what's the point of all this, what is Langdon's objective? It just seemed a bit confusing on the first watch. I will watch this again, though (probably multiple times) so perhaps the deeper story will reveal itself... I would recommend this, but with reservations and a little explanation as to why.

    Inferno was a really good movie, of course I can't recall a movie where Tom Hanks acted that the movie wasn't at least pretty good. The story followed the relatively same genre of the previous two movies (DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons), pitting Robert Langdon against a world spanning organization attempting to destroy a large part of the world. Action is intense but not over reaching for teens and above. The story plot line follows in a realistic though somewhat guided path, and the acting is engaging and keeps your glued to the movie with very few opportunities allowing you to rush for snacks or restroom breaks. Please note the slow parts are very important as it gives you insight and clues to what has, is, or is about to happen.

    More Dense, Better Home Viewing

    I have seen all the Dan Brown movies and enjoyed them all. 'Inferno' is the most difficult viewing, with a very complicated plot and an unreliable narrator. The movie almost veers into horror territory in the first half, and Tom Hanks' character takes quite a beating. The plot really requires more than one viewing to enjoy, the first time to enjoy the twists and the second to see the intricacies involved. While perhaps not quite up to the level of "Da Vinci Code', this is still infinitely smarter than 99% of the movies coming out today. It's great to see a character who isn't a superman but still a hero. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    A Bit of a Disappointment

    Well, after thoroughly enjoying Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, I was looking forward to seeing this. The previews made it sound like a must-see, and since I didn't catch it in the theater I was waiting impatiently for the release on DVD. The premise is terrific, but the story line was weak and the puzzle-solving aspect is nowhere near as compelling as in the other films, and while the ambiguities as to which people are on which side do make for some surprising twists, I found it difficult to stay interested. I'll watch it again just to make sure I didn't really tune out and miss anything, but this is definitely not a DVD I'll revisit very often.
