"Intergalactically stupid" - Mark Kermode, BBC Radio 5live

His rant about this film woke a man called Andrew from a coma.

What was particularly beautiful about this film was that Mark's review of the previous film in the franchise, The Da Vinci Code, was notorious for being punctuated with a cry of TURN THE LIGHTS ON; in one glorious, gloomy library-set moment in Angels And Demons, the entire scene revolves around literally turning the lights off.

Also involves Ewan McGregor wielding an accent of dangerously indeterminate origin and becoming Fiat Lux by virtue (literally) of his skydiving. For this reason, while Angels And Demons might not exactly be considered "good" (or even "passable"), the last 20 minutes are so hilariously ridiculous that it is at least not as criminally boring as its predecessor.
