"wow this sucks so far, but the ending is gonna be..WHAT THE FUUUUU??????
What a hideous piece of virulent, vomitous excrement. The producers truly must have hit Tom Hanks over the head to make him sign up for this sloppy, vacuous piffle. And if you think I'm taking liberties with the English language, that's NOTHING compared to the liberties that Ron Howard took with this gripping, provocative novel by Dan Brown. I'll ignore the lame beginning (endless dream sequences of Hell) and the middle (senseless scrambling around TripAdvisor Top Ten attractions) and focus on the ending. Don't worry, no spoilers here...except that THEY BALLSED IT UP! YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!! The major, most critical issue facing the human race, which will, without question, lead to the sort of hell that Dante envisioned, is TOTALLY GLOSSED OVER! Our population could reach 15 Billion as soon as 2100. This number is impossible for the earth to sustain. You think the housing crisis of 2009 (which nobody though would happen) was bad? Oh buddy. Think Soylent Green, friends. This film COULD have made a statement, maybe generating some intelligent discourse on a problem which affects every human on earth, black, white, Muslim, Christian, Country Fans, Metal Heads. But SCREW that! We might upset people! Best to give them a sappy, sickening Twinkie ending to gobble up. Skip this movie. Read the book.
