Inferno is better than The Da Vinci Code or Angels & Demons, but both of those films set the bar reprehensibly low.
It's a lot more like a tweed-jacket version of Bond or Bourne or most any other thriller out there. But if Langdon is distinguished from the other globe-trotting saviors by his PhD, why aren't his movies smarter?

Ron Howard's mostly lame adaptation of Dan Brown's wholly lame novel.
You know you've made some poor cinematic choices when you have to make Dan Brown characters less complex.
A stylish but tedious thriller that never does catch fire.
You don't need a hidden set of clues to decipher that "Inferno" is one of the worst movies of the year.
Nothing is what it seems, unless it seems ridiculous, in which case it's exactly what it seems.
A thoroughly pedestrian adventure that might have been better titled Hell is Lots and Lots of Other People.
