Inferno

Oscar-winning director Ron Howard returns to direct the third film based on the bestselling series by Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code), led once again by Tom Hanks as famous symbologist Robert Langdon. Co-stars fellow Academy Award nominee Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything).

Langdon is on a trail of clues tied to the great Dante himself. When he wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks (Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to foil a deadly global plot.

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?

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

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

Inferno reunites Ron Howard and Tom Hanks once again adapting a Dan Brown Novel, Inferno. The movie also stars Felicity Jones, Ben Foster, Irrfan Khan and Omar Sy. Billionaire Bertrand Zobrist believes human life is near it’s extinction due to overpopulation. In return, he’s invented a plague, Inferno. In the meantime Robert Langdon, wakes up in Florence...

The usual formula for the cat-and-mouse thriller consists of bad guys chasing good guys (who keep escaping), with the cycle repeated several times until the movie ends. There are many variations of course, and the premise for Inferno (2016) is based on lethal toxins capable of mass destruction. Set in fabulously exotic locations, the film doubles as a...

Several plots running through the movie, got a little confusing. Who was following who...Scenary was spectacular and little twists made this a worthwhile watch. Robert Langdon great character, compares with modern day Sherlock Holmes. Needed a few more puzzles.

Movie is good a little slow in places almost like they a forcing the story line to work. Tom Hanks as always is great as Robert Langdon It has some very clever misdirection when they choose use them over all worth seeing as one of the Robert Langdon movies.
