01.24.10Netflix It's weird that Armin Mueller-Stahl's upper lip has a Seussian dip in the middle now. Um... this was ok. It's hard to compare to my memory of Da Vinci code because I think I still remember the book more than the movie. Even though i read this one a long time ago, i was surprised to remember several big scenes notably absent in the film. In the big push to fit all the plot in these two and a half hours, there's no time to think about what's going on and what the puzzles even are much less how Langdon solved them or what the solutions even mean. To me, it was very hurried and rushed, possibly in an effort to keep the audience from being bored (like they were in Da Vinci Code) but whatever... These are both pretty hard adaptations that I don't think were particularly successful.

At least Tom Hanks didn't have his hair to supply easy fodder, probably the only reason why this wasn't lambasted as much as the first film. All in all, it was alright.
