Did You Know?

Trivia

The 'God particle' referred to in the movie is the Higgs-Boson particle, theorized in 1963-64. The LHC in Geneva is indeed seeking out the nature of this particle, which is claimed to give mass to all matter in the Universe. See more »

Goofs

The movie incorrectly shows the Commander of the Swiss Guard having authority over the investigation, and plain clothes Swiss Guards conducting the actual searches, etc. In fact, the Vatican has its own police force, the Vatican Gendarme, which would have authority for criminal investigations and for "close-in" protection of the Pope, such as carried out by the Secret Service for the President of the United States.

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.
