Obviously I’ll feel like hell if I watch this film next fall, but I really don’t get what the big threat to humanity amounts to. A “switch”, a map of Hades by Dante, a big blood flood, possible extinction…and only Tom Hanks has the smarts and the instincts to get to the bottom of it all. Aw, hell…help. On top of which I always seem to have problems with films set in Firenze (i.e., Florence). Okay, with the exception of A Room With A View. I can’t say I’m especially enamored of Firenze itself. I’ve been there twice — way too many fat, sandal-wearing tourists off the bus.
