Reviews (8) of Inferno

better than the previous ones. - Inferno review by CC

Spoiler Alert

This latest Dan Brown adaptation has the same spectacular locations but more of a storyline and an unexpected twist. I had thought the first two were laughably poor as films but this was better.

Hugely enjoyable hokum largely set in always-beautiful Florence and Venice - Inferno review by PV

Spoiler Alert
25/05/2017

This movie is hugely enjoyable to watch and far better than the Da Vinci Code and the other earlier movie based on a Dan Brown novel. Also I adore Florence and know it so well having holidayed there twice, so I knew all the places the film was shot on location. Also been to Venice to knew that too.

The screenplay is by David Koepp who adapted the novel into the movie Jurassic Park SO well and effectively.

Similarly, the plot here is lean and mean - not much flab on it. Some great twists, 180 degree car spins at times (and as ever in Hollywood movies halfway through the 2nd act so exactly halfway through the movie). A bit long maybe and too much is made of flashbacks and hallucinations etc.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Yes, it's hokum and utter nonsense. But Tom Hanks is less irritating than usual and the plotting is clever and classy - and the film LOOKS beautiful too.

The only weird thing is this: the baddie is portrayed as someone who wrongly wants to cull the world population which is now heading for 8 billion (when it was 4 billion in 1970 and 1-2 billion in the 1930s. Now, I happen to agree with this character - world population WILL destroy us all. Already it is making most animals extinct and causing most famine, wars, environmental disasters. We MUST act now or humanity is doomed. So I was rooting for the so-called baddie in this!

4 stars maybe 4.5.

Poor Tom Hanks must have signed a 3 film deal - Inferno review by MG

Spoiler Alert
08/01/2018

Weak plot, unbelievable characters that were not developed, obvious twist and historical sites used for no good reason .

I liked the first Dan Brown which had a plot and pace that worked. the use of historical elements added to the theme and the plot. The second started to try to hard and created a nonsensical plot. This one is to formulaic lots of running and chasing for no good reason and it even seems like the author ran out of ideas for the ending, Really I don't want to spoil anything but you will question the use of a plastic bag!

Really a sad film that did not grip like the first.

Critic review

Inferno review by Adrijan Arsovski - Cinema Paradiso

With names such as Ron Howard, Tom Hanks and Hans Zimmer involved in a given project, naturally you would think their finished product would be at least decent, if not else. Regrettably, the latest Dan Brown adaptation is as uninventive as it can get, offering cheap thrills and fast-paced edits that make the whole experience feel more like rehashing a made-for-TV B movie tropes in place of well-structured visual cohesion and narrative progression. Usually I tend to avoid a certain comparative approach, but this time, the book is way better.

Inferno starts well (although chaotic), throwing Tom Hanks in Medias res while his character Langdon suffers from amnesia; naturally, he doesn’t recall how he ended up in a hospital, why he’s in the condition that he finds himself into and how on earth did he found himself in Florence, Italy. Robert Langdon is also plagued by visions resembling those of Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, where various wrongdoers are condemned to eternal suffering to repay in death what they took for granted in life, and other sins. As soon as Langdon escapes the hospital together with the generic woman side character (played by Felicity Jones), things get real messy really fast.

And why does Inferno feels like it was edited on the fly, without any real visual substance to be added to scenes where a certain events with gravitas were to happen? The blame can be put on Howard, but given how much producers stick their fingers in movies nowadays – it’s not that big a surprise that Inferno looks and feels cheap after all. Add to that an indistinguishable score thrown in there somewhere to accompany an all-too-familiar thriller piece, questionable acting by all sides involved (yes, even Omar Sy), laughable coincidences that shouldn’t happen in serious films and there you have it: another decent book ruined by a quick cash grab thanks to Hollywood studios and producers.

The premise of the story is good. What will happen if Earth can no longer sustain human life in abundance? What measure will be taken by the world powers to secure that humanity will not perish? But, its amateur realization and poor execution make for a weak attempt of a story that crumbles and falls apart when (also) the ending is changed as opposed to Inferno the novel. It just doesn’t make sense and is not a logical progression that leads to a definitive conclusion.

To sum up things: Inferno abounds with weakly developed characters, poor story, sidekicks that’re just there for the ride and questionable motivations. On the technical side, it’s chaotic, frenetic and copies just about every filming cliché that ever was – but hey – at least Florence is pretty.

If you can, read the book instead.
