TheTVObserver: Angels & Demons

TheTVObserver’s Movie Report presents Angels & Demons. Despite the fact that there have been reports that the Vatican is calling for a boycott of the movie. I think everyone should see the movie. You can boycott it after watching it, or you can walk out of the theatre if you feel offended.

I personally think the movie is worth watching. The team behind the global phenomenon "The Da Vinci Code" returns for the highly anticipated "Angels & Demons," based upon the bestselling novel by Dan Brown.

Tom Hanks reprises his role as Harvard religious expert Robert Langdon, who once again finds that forces with ancient roots are willing to stop at nothing, even murder, to advance their goals.

When Langdon discovers evidence of the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati - the most powerful underground organization in history - he also faces a deadly threat to the existence of the secret organization's most despised enemy: the Catholic Church.

I believe religion has much to offer in the realm of entertainment, mostly because a lot of religious beliefs are based on human lies….green, black, red, yellow, blue….lies. Whatever color you can think of, religious history has been painted with lies by humans who took liberty with the truth and facts. To design what they think religion should be.

The sad part is when you see millions of people embracing that lie and often become passionate and take up arms to protect it. Thus, I think the genre offers so much to filmmakers but the idea of having a spotlight on one’s religion is not what believers think is the right thing to do. Despite the fact that religion at its core taught mankind to argue, debate and investigate their beliefs in order to have a strong faith. Moving on….

When Langdon learns that the clock is ticking on an unstoppable Illuminati time bomb, he jets to Rome, where he joins forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist.

Embarking on a nonstop, action-packed hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even to the heart of the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra will follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that mark the Vatican's only hope for survival.

Enjoy the motion picture!
