Inferno (2016) | Ratings & Reviews

"Ron Howard’s workmanlike adaptations of Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon bestsellers will never be regarded as paragons of the thriller genre, but I’ll admit to getting a fleeting kick out of Angels & Demons’ ludicrous plot, which imagined the Illuminati conspiring to blow up the Vatican with an antimatter bomb. Inferno, the third in the film series, is very much in the same ballpark of crazy, following symbologist Langdon (Tom Hanks) as he scrambles through another serpentine trail of cryptic clues and shadowy figures."

"Fundamentally silly the film may be, but it never graduates to spryness."


"Having already taken two rides on the Dan Brown merry-go-round, shouldn't this have been the one where Ron finally got it right?"

Total FilmTotal Film

"Our not-desperately-dynamic duo trundle from one European gallery to another, sharing easily digestible info-nuggets about Dante."

Time OutTime Out

"Purgatorio is maybe closer to it - something bad is happening, not the full Inferno, but it could be the gateway to the Paradiso of this fantastically boring film actually coming to an end."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"This franchise, no matter what the box-office receipts say, is officially dead in the water."


"Howard keeps the viewer constantly occupied, Felicity Jones is an engaging sidekick, and there's clearly a lot more mileage left for Tom Hanks in this franchise's tank ..."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"Watching it feels like signing up to a tour group visiting the sites of Brown's less popular works and you're not allowed off the bus."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"Achieves the difficult task of somehow being both a tedious chore and cartoonishly silly."


"Arguably the best in the franchise so far."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"It's not the worst of the trilogy, but this is less for fans of thrillers and more for people who are pining after last year's holiday to Florence."
