Inferno is a Dan Brown book turned into a movie starring Tom Hanks. Previously, we have seen Tom Hanks play Robert Langdon in the DaVinci Code and Angels & Demons. This time, he uses his knowledge of literature, history, architecture, and science to solve puzzles that lead to the location of a horrific plan to “cull the herd” known as mankind. A virus is developed where the end plan is to reduce the population of the Earth to a sustainable number. Clues put several parties in a race to find where in the world the virus will be released. Who are these groups? What are their motives? Why do they need Langdon? The chase is on to save the world from people who may or may not be friends.
This is an edge-of-your-seat chase scene that moves from place to place revealing clue after clue to solve the mystery. Outstanding scenes shot in Italy and other countries give new perspective to historic places. The puzzles are impossible to solve without the help of Langdon, but he makes it look easy–even with a head wound. The locations were exceptional, the characters were relatable, and the threat is real. The acting was good and the drama was intense. If you liked the first two movies, you’ll like this one. I loved it. 5 out of 5 stars.
