Famous symbologist on a trail of clues tied to the great Dante himself. When Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Sienna Brooks, a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Together, they race across Europe and against the clock to stop a madman from unleashing a global virus that would wipe out half of the world's population.Written by

Much of the film (and the book from which it is based on) draws major parallels from Dante's "Inferno," hence the title of the piece and the Italian setting. See more »
Langdon and Sienna take a car from Sienna's apartment to get to Palazzo Vecchio, "near the Giardini Boboli". However the location of Sienna's apartment overlooks Via del Sole, near Palazzo Strozzi, and is just a 7 minute walk from the Palazzo Vecchio, even closer than the Giardini Boboli! It would take just as long if not longer to take a car in the tight streets of Florence's historic center, which is not conducive to driving automobiles. In addition, after leaving her apartment the next scenes show them driving down Via Machiavelli in a completely different part of the city, across the Arno river. See more »

This review is from the perspective of someone who hasn't read the book but still knows his/her movies.
The movie's start is very confusing at first, where Robert Langdon has some visions but they don't really seem necessary and so it takes quite some time to establish the plot. It lacks the inclusion of Renaissance artists' work or a history lesson here or there, they are there, with the main focus on Dante, however it's still not as much as compared to the previous 2 movies, which just made them so much more interesting.
There a couple of plot twists in the movie but nothing that might throw you off your seat or make the movie more interesting.
Hans Zimmer's background score felt under par compared to the beautiful scores and themes he has given for The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons and countless other movies.
Another thing that I felt lacking was a final turn in the end, like a final nail in the coffin, like the previous 2 movies had.
Overall, I don't know about Dan Brown's novel, but the writing of the script was not up to the mark.
