so that title is suppose to say Angels and Demons.. not sure if you got that… =P   i think the title "Angels and Demons" is a bit inadequate for the story… there are plenty of angle statues.. but where are the demons? the title sounds more like a supernatural story…
 
anyways.. Lan’s still bitter about having to rewrite this.. so this is going to be terse…
 
The main watch point of the movie is the surprise factor. The innocent looking, seemingly virtuous, open-minded, hero turns out to be the mastermind behind it all. Lan is dissapointed… she feels like she’s been deceived… reminds me of the chinese saying, 知人知面不知心。。。
 
The first cardinal was killed in an extreme gruesome manner… but the other 3 killings came short of it… not that lan loves gruesomeness.. just that since they are trying to put in that thrill factor, they should have went all the way through w/ it…
 
the story line is actually pretty stale, basically a puzzle solving treasure(cardinal in this case) hunt. I think they try to compensate the dryness w/ intense music playing all the time. intense music + police dashing around the screen finding cluess + Tom Hanks flirting with the main actress talking mellowly trying to explain the clues all at the same time= weird. i think they are trying too hard to make an action movie out of a drama…
 
i think da vinci code storyline would have made a better movie, not sure why people thought this movie was better.. haven’t seen da vinci code the movie.. i’ll see how bad it is…
 
I actually had a little trouble understanding the movie due to all the biblico references, plus the characters talking fast and mumbling sometimes… which usually happens in dramas… i need subtitles.. >.<  i blame it on not being a native english speaker…
 
all in all… decent movie.. not as bad as i projected above.. it’s actually somewhat entertaining… a bit of humor that makes you smirk… but not enough to lol …
 
hmm… this is still pretty long… well.. it was originally written in a more light hearted manner though.. =P… and it would have been proof read and spell checked.. not doing that now.. >.<
