Angels & Demons (12A)

THE movie version of The Da Vinci Code was incomparable to the book. And, unfortunately, not in a good way.

Let's hope it will not be a case of 'same again' for the adaptation of another Dan Brown bestseller.

Angels & Demons, which was penned three years before Da Vinci, was the book that introduced us to Harvard symbolist Robert Langdon.

Tom Hanks reprises the role, as Langdon again uncovers a murderous conspiracy. He discovers a resurgence of the Illuminati - history's most powerful secret brotherhood - and learns they pose a deadly threat to their sworn enemy, the Catholic Church.

Racing to Rome, Langdon joins forces with Vittoria Vetra (Ayelet Zurer), a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist. Embarking on a perilous hunt through crypts, catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even the heart of the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that mark the Vatican's only hope for survival.
