If “Angels & Demons” Is 50% Better Than “The DaVinci Code”…It Will Still Suck
First things first, “The DaVinci Code” book and subsequent movie version completely and totally suck. The movie is especially awful when a dramatic line goes like this: “I need a library…fast.” Ugh…I needed a Red Bull…fast. What a freaking snooze!
That being said…this poster for the prequel, “Angels & Demons” is pretty damn slick. Not surprisingly, the story for this flick also involves shady Catholics. That Dan Brown…he sure is kind to Catholicism isn’t he?
The cast is impressive, just like the first movie, with Ewen McGregor, Stellan Skarsgard, and Armin Mueller-Stahl joining director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks this time around. Of course, the cast of the first movie was impressive and it is weaker than the Chicago Cubs starting pitching. It was the first movie to make me say “Ian MacKellan sucks“. I won’t say why MacKellan took the role…but it rhymes with shmay-schmeck.
