Story: Professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) suffers from Retrograde Amnesia and experiences nightmarish visions, when he wakes up in a hospital in Florence. Having lost his 48 hours of memory, he has no idea how he landed up there. Dr Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) comes to his rescue. The two must race across Europe to decode cryptic symbols and codes in order to save humanity from a deadly virus created by a billionaire bioengineer, Zobrist (Ben Foster). He intends to wipe-out half the world’s population. To prevent a global pandemic, the duo must delve into Dante’s life.

Review: The film adaptation of Dan Brown’s bestseller (Inferno) may not be an edge-of-the-seat thriller but it manages to hold your attention and involve you in its quest. Hanks reprises the role of Langdon for the third time and lends his innate likeability to the character once again. He is Jason Bourne here, minus the weapons, bikes and fistfights. Some mega twists in the tale breathe life into the usual puzzle solving race and chase sequences.

While English actress Felicity Jones ably supports Hanks, it is our very own Irrfan, who plays a significant role in the movie and walks away with the best one-liners. As a leader of a morally ambiguous private security firm, he takes witty jibes at almost everyone in style and makes his presence felt. You love the way he warns Langdon, “Young people are disappointing. People get tolerable at 35.” He is fairly good in the action scenes as well! Hans Zimmer’s background score is another highlight.

Inferno, however is not a total smooth ride. It drags in portions, especially when it comes to Langdon’s personal life. Also it’s flooded with standard clichés that imply the professor being ‘humanity’s last hope’ etc. However, despite a few flaws, Ron Howard’s film is a competent adaptation and offers mild cerebral entertainment that manages to engage you. Go join the hunt.

The Dan Brown story has been well picturised. Worth a see.

Inferno is the latest Robert Langdon movie. Its two predecessors were The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons. Inferno the movie sheds redundant explanations of symbols and codes and also the myths associated with those (the novel itself is sufficient for those who are interested in those) and takes a smooth storyline that helps keep the pace of a thriller movie. The former two required a lot of knowledge of stories and myths and arts regarding Christianity and Catholicism (at least a good grasp of the nobels by Dan Brown). Inferno releaves its spectators off that onus. If one has not read the book there will be no problem to enjoy the movie. This is the most important point of the movie. It also takes Robert Langdon down a memory lane where he too had a sort of untold love. I cannot say what it means for a Robert Langdon fan.
