{4/5} “There’s a great deal of situational ebb and flow in my line of work.”

Inferno, released in 2016

Robert Langdon wakes up in Florence. He has a head wound and doesn’t remember anything from the past couple of days. When someone comes to the hospital to kill him, he and his doctor, Sienna Brooks, make a run for it. They piece together some clues and discover that someone has made a plague that could kill half the world.

Like the other Robert Langdon movies, it’s based on a book by Dan Brown. Unlike the other two, this time I hadn’t read the book before I saw the movie.

As usual there’s lots of chasing and figuring out puzzles. There are some lovely scenes in Florence, Venice, and Istanbul.

It’s a bit confusing at first but since the main character is also confused maybe that’s on purpose.

The guy who’s in charge of the security company is a great character.

You’ll be on the edge of your seat. As with Jason Bourne, though, it doesn’t quite add up to a great movie.

Stars Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones, and Irfan Khan. Directed by Ron Howard (Angels & Demons). The action-y music is by Hans Zimmer.
