Reasonably good news from Variety‘s Todd McCarthy in his just-up review of Ron Howard‘s Angels and Demons. One, this “cleverly produced” film is “less turgid and aggravating than its predecessor.” Two, “the climax, however far-fetched, is visually spectacular and dramatically both evenhanded and unexpected.” Three, Tom Hanks‘ Robert Langdon is fitter looking than he was in The DaVinci Code, and has changed hairdressers (i.e., no more DaVinci mullet). And four, Ewan McGregor‘s performance is “OK.”
