I saw Angels & Demons movie with Tom Hanks this weekend. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. Actually, it was amazing. It was WAY better than the Da Vinci Code movie. Although it is totally unrelated, I also thought it was an overall better movie than Wolverine from a couple weeks ago. That’s a hard one to admit too, because I just love the character of Wolverine. But this was a better movie.

I love Tom Hanks. He’s great in everything he does. On a side note, I’d love to see him do a comedy again. Ewan McGregor was spectacular in it as well. He’s become quite a good actor. Of course, I loved when he played a young Obi Wan Kenobi. But this role in Angels & Demons really showed his talent.

I know a lot of Christians (and Catholics) get upset over the storyline and find it highly offensive. I understand, but I didn’t. In fact, I felt the overall message in the end was very positive. I also understand that this is fiction, so I try not to take it too seriously. I highly recommend this movie.

Angels & Demons was a spirited and entertaining earthly escape.
