More interesting than Da Vinci Code.

In all honestly I didn't quite like the film adaption of Dan Browns 'The Da Vinci Code' all that well, even though it was directed by Ron Howard. Weirdly as a novel this is the prequel to Da Vinci Code, the novel Angels and Demons having been released in 2000, 3 years before Da Vinci Code was released. Considering Ron Howard directed this as a sequel and I have to admit that decision really helped Angels & Demons. What's not to like Tom Hanks recreating the role of Robert Langdon, a score by Hans Zimmer, Aylet Zurer playing Dr. Vittoria Vetra (Munich, Vantage Point and the upcoming 2016 Epic Ben-Hur) Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting) and Stellan Skarsgård (Ronin, Thor, Avengers) rounding off a good supporting cast. Enjoyable with a good mixture of suspense, drama and action. Looking forward to the third film 'Inferno' due sometime in 2016 and again directed by Ron Howard.
