Inferno – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Oh wow. This was directed by Ron Howard.  He can direct films.  He’s done a few pretty good ones.  In fact Rush from a few years back was awesome.  But here… here I get the impression he may not have been on set much for this one as Inferno is pretty woeful with both Howard and Hanks delivering sub par career low efforts.  And they made Ange;s & Demons.  From a clunky script that is laugh out loud bad TO THE MOST OBVIOUS TWIST EVER, Inferno takes the standard piss poor Dan Brown source material and does nothing to make it better.  In fact in a rare twist the film actually makes it worse.  One to avoid.

Best Bit: THE TWIST. The film plays it like a surprise.  You won’t be.

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid

If You Liked this Try: The DaVinci Code, Angels & Demons, Rush

IMDB Rating: 4 out of 10 stars
