Inferno Movie Review – A Cerebral thrill ride worth taking

 

‘Inferno’ is the third film adaptation of Dan Brown’s novels after ‘Davinci Code’ and ‘Angels and Demons’ that once again brings together actor Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard to give a cerebral thriller that engages the viewer the majority of the time.

The film opens with a madman billionaire Zobrist (Ben Foster) apprehended by a special agent (Omar Sy) on a high tower in Florence, who jumps to his death without revealing the secret trial to a virus that he has planted somewhere which will wipe out half the world’s population. A severely injured Professor Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) wakes up in a hospital in an amnesiac state suffering from nightmarish visions not knowing how he even came to Florence. The paramedic Sienna (Felicity Jones) helps him escape as a policewoman comes in trying to kill the professor. There is also Sims (Irrfan Khan) the head of a secret shady organization and Elizabeth Sinskey (Sidse Babett Knudsen) the head of World Health Organization who want a piece of the fleeing duo. From there on the rollercoaster ride begins with Hanks and Jones hopping around Europe while the former tries to piece together the riddle left by Foster through the poems of Dante to prevent the terrible catastrophe.
