When Langdon and the rest first enter the Vatican Archives you see the lights go off as they are shutting off power in an attempt to locate the bomb, but as they go through the reading room the screens on the computers are still on. However, lights and mains outlets are often wired on to separate grids and it is probable that the Swiss guard were only cutting power to the lighting grids, as their goal was simply to kill the lighting around the bomb.

When somebody asks you to watch this movie...JUST SAY NO!
After 'The Da Vinci Code' was successful and obviously made plenty of money to Hollywood producers, of course they decided to make a sequel very soon. Ron Howard was appointed again, Tom Hanks re-appears as lead character Robert Langdon, even more money is invested and everything is prepared for 'Angels & Demons'...
Oh wait, there is one problem, good script isn't on the menu! I mean seriously how can it get this bad after an okay but still quite disappointing 'Da Vinci Code'. Well let's just put it this way, 'Angels & Demons' makes 'Da Vinci Code' look like timeless masterpiece, yes, this movie is that bad. Script is just terrible seriously, photography even worse, casting awful (except Tom Hanks). For example, Tom Hanks and his female companion in this movie have no chemistry going on at all between them, it's just plain bad choosing of actress, and i thought that french girl in 'Da Vinci Code' didn't fit good in a picture with Tom Hanks, if you compare them, the 'Da Vinci Code' girl fits great in her role. The worst, most boring and dreadful scenes of this movie are the ones with reporters and crowds in Vatican, i mean it's just so pointless and dumb. I thought the history talk in 'Da Vinci Code' was a bit boring and silly, well in this movie it just gets whole lotta worse. At some point, i don't remember when, some 20 minutes at the start of the movie, i actually felt the suspense and i got kind of interested in the whole symbolic murders but it faded away really fast. And when you realize the conclusion to this whole plot you just feel disappointed with the whole thing about the events that happened throughout the film. The ending is again overcooked as in 'Da Vinci Code' or possibly even worse. Whoever asks you to watch 'Angels & Demons', be it your mother, your father, your sister, your brother, your friends, your girlfriend/boyfriend or your neighbors that just borrowed the movie from video-store and have no one else to watch it with, take my advice and JUST SAY NO!
