A Lost Langdon: A Review of Inferno

2024-05-11

Released in 2016, Inferno is another action-packed adventure featuring the famed symbologist Robert Langdon, played by Tom Hanks. This time, Langdon finds himself in a predicament far worse than facing off against religious conspiracies – amnesia. Partnering with Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), he races across Europe piecing together clues and his own fractured memories to prevent a global catastrophe.

Directed by Ron Howard, Inferno stays true to the fast-paced, puzzle-solving formula of the Robert Langdon series. The chase sequences are thrilling, and the historical references, particularly those related to Dante’s Inferno, add intrigue. Hanks delivers a reliable performance, and the addition of Jones brings a fresh dynamic to the team.

However, Inferno suffers from a convoluted plot that gets a bit lost in its ambition. The amnesia trope, while initially interesting, feels like a crutch at times, and the constant explanations can slow down the movie’s momentum.

If you’re a fan of the Robert Langdon series and are looking for an entertaining globetrotting adventure, Inferno will likely satisfy. But for those seeking a more grounded and suspenseful thriller, this movie might feel like a cryptic puzzle with a few missing pieces.
