Inferno (2016)

Inferno is sequel to The Da Vinci Code (2006) and Demons and Angels (2009). It really feel they wanted to repeat winning formula of The Da Vinci Code. It didn't work too well with Demons and Angels. It doesn't even that well this time. Plot is so forced I couldn't take it seriously. Someone is trying to release some kind of plague to save the earth. He has left hints where his plague package is using references to Dante.

Robert Langdon wakes up at hospital wounded and hallucinating. He doesn't remember anything from last few days. When he tries to find out what has happened everything gets weirder. Felicity Jones plays woman who helps him. She is not anywhere near of Audrey Tautou. I don't even remember who played the role in Demons and Angels. Here you remember Felicity Jones' character because of plot twist. She is as forgettable as she was in Rogue One.

I would be lying if I didn't say I was excited at the end. I have no idea why. Maybe it was professionalism and talent of filmmakers. Movie didn't deserve my excitement. Ending worked for some reason. Setting was cool looking and music worked. But it was only the ending. Everything before it didn't excite me. Many parts of the story didn't make much sense. Movie just want to repeat successful formula of the first movie without thinking if the story makes sense. Book is probably the same. If you liked both of the previous movies you might enjoy this too.
