Trivia

In the beginning sequence in the movie as Langdon is having dreams of the inferno, there is a character that walks by him in his dream/night terror that is wearing a "Plague Mask" that physicians wore during the "Black Death" and other plagues over the last 600- 700 years ago up until the 20th century as well. They are a strange contraption that has a bird like face covering the mask. The doctor would place herbs in the beaker of the mask in an attempt to ward off the miasma, or bad air, which spread the plague. See more »

Goofs

Brooks states that Langdon was 'intubated' so all the medication he received at the hospital was administered intravenously. Intubation is the insertion of a breathing/medication tube through a persons trachea, and has nothing to do with an IV. See more »

Disappointing and Predictable Story
1 December 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The geneticist Bertrand Zobrist (Ben Foster) is hunted down by three men and commits suicide from the top of a tower in Florence. Zobrist believes that the Earth's population that has an exponential growth should be reduced in 50% to save the other 50%. In Florence, Professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) awakens in a hospital with no memory of the last two days and with daydreams and dreadful visions. Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) explains that he has a head trauma cause by a bullet that scratched his head and he would recover his memory in a few days. Out of the blue, a doctor tells that the police wants to interrogate him and a police officer, who is indeed the killer Vayentha (Ana Ularu), shoots the doctor but Sienna and Langdon succeeds to escape to her apartment. Langdon finds a Faraday pointer in the pocket of his jacket and when they project the image, they see the Map of Dante's Inferno by Sandro Botticelli. They contact the American Consulate but give the wrong address nearby the apartment. Soon the area is under siege of the World Health Organization (WHO) agents and the local police, including Vayentha, and Langdon and Sienna conclude that Zobrist has created a virus to annihilate the world's population. But who can be trusted?

"Inferno" completes the trilogy of Dan Brown based on the adventures of Professor Robert Langdon with a totally disappointing and predictable story. The screenplay is a mess and the camera work and edition are awful. Robert Langdon is a superman since he is wounded and with amnesia, but capable of run, jump over the walls, recalls details such as hidden passages and door in different locations etc. The plot point with Sienna Brooks is totally predictable and it was obvious that she had teamed up with Langdon to find where the virus is. The romance between Langdon and Elizabeth Sinskey, performed by the unknown Sidse Babett Knudsen, has no chemistry. In the end, "Inferno" is absolutely forgettable. My vote is five.
