To be clear, I never finished Dan Brown‘s Inferno. The book didn’t speak to me in the page-turning fiction way that his previous two Robert Langdon tomes The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons had. Perhaps if I had read the whole thing I might have skipped the film.
I wish I had.
Let me save you the two hours I will never get back: Inferno is an awful film with only about 5 minutes of redeemable screen time. This is astonishing given the actors involved and their past awarded prowess and yet it is still really quite bad.
Really, really short review: Run. Save yourself.
