Following the murder of a physicist, Father Silvano Bentivoglio, a symbolist, Robert Langdon, and a scientist, Vittoria Vetra, are on an adventure involving a secret brotherhood, the Illuminati.

Trivia

As well as providing the voice over for the film's teaser trailer (using an American accent) Alfred Molina (who played Aringarosa in the previous movie The Da Vinci Code (2006)) provides the opening voice over for Angels & Demons (2009), this time in his native English accent. See more »

Goofs

During the scene when Langdon and Vittoria are reading the Latin excerpts, the Latin was in perfect punctuation. However, in ancient Rome, Latin was written without punctuation (i.e. no spaces, commas, periods) or capital letters. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: The Ring of the Fisherman, which bears the official papal seal, must be destroyed immediately following the Pope's death. The papal apartment is then sealed for nine days of mourning, a period known as "Sede Vacante", the time of the empty throne.

Why are People Bashing this Movie?
15 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I go to the movies to be entertained. I was very entertained by the first film in this series: The DaVinci Code. It had plenty of twists and turns throughout to keep me very interested. Angels and Demons is no different. If you enjoyed the DaVinci Code, then you will undoubtedly enjoy this movie as well. Angels and Demons is made pretty much with the exact same style as the previous film, but faster paced, which I liked. Ron Howard kept me glued to my seat for the full two hours without boring me one bit.

What I really liked about this movie was that even though it is obviously fictitious, they leave enough real history to make it seem very believable. If there is one thing that I didn't like about this movie, it is that the plot itself is very unbelievable (don't want to give any spoilers). But hey, it's a movie. I was entertained throughout the whole thing and was very satisfied with what I saw.
