**Caution! Spoiler Ahead!!**
16th May 2009, me and my girlfriend went to watch this movie, Angels and Demons. I’ve watched the DaVinci Code years ago in cinema and I don’t really like it that time. However, after I watched it again at home, I’ve understand the story more and I feel that it is quite nice actually. With all the mysteries history and the truth at the back and the trace to the truth. I love this kind of mysteries movies. It reminds me about National Treasure, I like that movie too. Here’s the trailer of Angels and Demons..
I’ve never watched the trailer before I walked into the cinema. So I’ve totally no idea what is this movie is going to be about. Turns out that it was so so. I think the reasons that makes this movie not so attractive is because of all the Latin’s names and Rome’s histories that confused me.. @.@
Well I’ll just talk about the synopsis roughly cause sometimes I’m not really that understand the story. Guess those who read the book could understand well. Please correct me if I say anything wrong.. 😛
The story is about the leader of the catholic church died and the world cries for the death of their leader. So now after his funeral, they’ll going to have an internal election to choose and vote the next leader of the catholic in the world. I’m not sure whether this is the real thing or it’s only make up story in the book, well I guess it’s the real thing.. guess only 😛
Then there’s this group called Illuminati who were the scientists long long time ago that discover the earth and the universe existence. This cannot be allow by the catholic religious as it could have turn their theories upside down. So they hunt and kill these scientists to hide the truth from the world, forcing those scientists to go underground and form this secret group, Illuminati. Don’t know how many years ago, the catholic church people kill some of these scientists and now they’re back for revenge. They threaten the church that they’re going to kill 4 priest. Tom Hanks as Professor Robert Langdon were assigned this mission to track down the Illuminator. Then he found out that he’s going to kill them in according to the 5 elements which are the earth, the wind, the fire, and the water and finally the bomb that will destroy Vatican City. A proton bomb that discovered by the scientist which proved the formation of the world that might have crashed with the catholic’s theory about how God make the world. Something like that.
Then finally he found out that all these murders was just a plot. A plot from the other priest in St. Peter church that he wish to become the next leader of catholic church but he is not qualified because he is still young and haven’t reach that level yet. This man is the actor who act as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars, Ewan McGregor. He pretend that he saves the city by taking the bomb on a helicopter and flew up high in the sky so that the bomb exploded in the sky and prevent injuries. His heroic act almost made him success to what he wanted. However his plot was discovered by Tom Hanks and so finally he killed himself.
Overall the movie is above average. Not as impressed as the DaVinci Code. It’s more on action film than solving clues and puzzles. So I rate this movie 7/10
