The reason why a sequel took so long to be released was because Sony wanted to film "The Lost Symbol," but the production of that adaptation became too complicated as Ron Howard preferred to only produce it rather than directing it and Tom Hanks would not be returning as Professor Robert Langdon. In the end, the production took so long that the novel Inferno was released in 2013 and Sony decided to produce that adaptation instead, and most of the crew of the previous films returned, including Ron Howard as director and Tom Hanks reprising his role as the main character.

Just before the drone searches for Langdon and Sienna outside Boboli Gardens, the time displayed on the movie screen is 8:42 A.M. A moment later, the drone's monitor screen indicates a UTC time of 08:43. However, in June, during daylight savings time, Florence, Italy is two hours ahead of UTC, so the drone clock should have read 06:43. 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.
