Reviewed by: Rev. If Jesus is God, how could he die? If Jesus died on the cross, then how can he be alive today? Has science disproved the miracles associated with Jesus Christ? How can the Bible be infallible if it was written by fallible humans? Does it mean to convey that these heavenly opposites are one-in-the-same, or does it mean to emphasize the specific foes at two ends of the spectrum? It could be argued that both are meant, as there are actually multiple stories rolled into one here.
On the one hand, there is the untimely death of a Pope, for which the Vatican is earnestly seeking a replacement. All of its focus is directed toward that end, until something messes up the works and stalls the proceedings.
And what does Langdon know that may be of help? He knows everything about the Illuminati—a group that Brown would have us think is ubiquitous in its influence, and which was born as a reaction of smart people against ignorant Christianity. The fact is, the Illuminati are more alive in the minds of conspiracy theorists like Brown than in current or even past reality.
The movie presents them as being the greatest members among the scientifically enlightened, and because the Church supposedly opposes scientific inquiry, the Illuminati have plotted to finally eliminate the superstitious super-Institution, in our day, with the latest discovery of scientific technology: anti-matter.
So, on the other end of the story is science. Particle physicists develop an amazing energy source that could potentially become a beast with tremendous destructive force, if it were to fall into the wrong hands, which is what happens. The question is, are the forces angels or demons? As for religion, does it really oppose and contravene research and learning?
Are religion and science at odds? That is the question, and the Church takes a beating as the all time quasher of enlightened advancement. Is it, in actuality, a bastion of spiritual pretense with all the political motives of Hell, or is it a cautious friend of knowledge? Are religion and science necessarily enemies, and if so, which is the angel and which is the demon? In the end, will science destroy the church or save it? This is what we finally find out. What is bothersome about the movie, is that Langdon is too smart.
His skeptical intelligence and superior knowledge of arcane history lead the story. Langdon seems to be the altar-ego of Brown, who thinks that everything the church believes is suspect, at best, and diabolical, at worst it oppresses truth , disseminates ignorance, and causes problems for civilized man. The Roman Catholic Church divided during the Reformation, so that Protestants do not identify with much, if anything, after the Council of Trent.
Likewise, we all share in the glories of the historic catholic universal church up to that time. Thinking Christians will likely feel encouraged to know more about such charges in the movie and how to answer them.
Persecution nearly always strengthens us. There is a positive element to the film, in that some of the religious characters actually come off looking spiritually wise.
As for objectionable peripherals, the bad language is milder and less frequent than a lot of movies with the same rating. Smoking is not seen as unusual, and is especially typical among clergy in the film. The violence in the movie proliferates.
Of note: there is an immolation, a modernized burning at the stake, many people shot to death at close range, a throat cut, several people are branded with glowing hot irons, a dead man is exhumed, corpses are being eaten by rats, people are hit by debris after an explosion, blood sprays out of the chest of a CPR subject, and other less graphic, but still violent scenes could be noted. If the viewer is of strong constitution, perhaps this movie should be seen for its cultural value, and received as a catalyst for more diligent study of church and the Bible.
Ignorance will kill us, and one thing to remember is that religion and science are not mortal enemies. Christ came for just this very thing, to save flawed and fallen man.

Answer Was Jesus Christ God, manifest in human form? Answer Is Jesus Christ really God? Answer Has science disproved the miracles associated with Jesus Christ? Answer How do we know the Bible is true? Answer How can the Bible be infallible if it was written by fallible humans? Positive —My wife and I have viewed this film and we are pleased to report that with the exception of the discussion of the nude statues in Rome that the film is free from any other filthiness of this nature.
My wife and I are Christians and our view is that the film is definitely anti-catholic, but not anti-Christian. One need only look back to the work of the early reformers and other great Bible expositors of the period to understand that Christians were markedly different and separated from the self styled.
The film draws attention to how the Church of Rome is steeply set in tradition, pagan beliefs and superstitions and we found this to be quite interesting. Seeing the church clergy smoking is in fact factually correct—they are very ordinary people with a guise or cloak of Christianity.
Seeing the murder and treachery carried on inside the doors of the Roman Catholic Church is again not far from the truth at all. One need only to pick up any good history book of the Catholic Church to see that bloodshed, murder and corruption were the order of the day for over 1, years of their history. Popes also were not immune from being murdered by their peers when they feel out of favour. Quite an enjoyable film overall.
I found it entertaining which is the only reason most anyone goes to the theater. Yes, the murders are disturbing and the betrayal and cover-ups inside the Vatican should not come as a surprise when men are put in positions of ultimate unquestionable authority. I saw this movie twice so I was able to get a real feel for the film. It focuses more on what humans have done to the image of God.
The film does not attack Christianity at all, it attacks the Catholic Church and for good reason. The ritualistic practices and the abnormal amount of respect given to priests, bishops, and the pope is flawed, it is Christ that deserves this respect—not mere men.
The movie does a great job at picking apart the atrocities committed in early Catholic Church history and the Camerlengo Ewan McGregor does a fantastic job at trying to intertwine science and religion, as Tom Hanks points out in the movie, they both tell the same story, just in different ways. Overall, an excellent film that I highly recommend! My Ratings: Moral rating: Excellent!
Walker , age 20 USA. Positive —What can I say? I loved this movie. It was nothing like the Davinci Code excuse my spelling This movie kept me thinking I knew the way it would turn out then it would surprise me! Other than that this movie was overall clean, and for Dan Brown, He becomes born again before its over!
This movie had many spiritual overtones in it, while portraying the Roman Catholic church for past sins, it also showed the Catholic Church sincerely sorry for past sins and mistakes.
However, that is not what I am getting to. There are other very positive elements in this movie, and if you love a suspense mystery thriller this movie is for you!
In my opinion it was the best movie of ! But I have to tell you, if you can read between the lines you will find much positive spiritually in this movie! Positive —I thought this was a good movie. I disagree with one commenters that felt it was anti-Catholic. I liked how, in the end, the new pope tried to lead Langdon to the church. Very good movie. Neutral —This was a very interesting movie. Its references to history test your own knowledge, and it seemed like the audience needed to be slightly educated in Catholic culture to completely understand the film.
Visually, the movie was very appealing. Morally, it did have some objectionable content. Another aspect to be aware of is the graphic scenes of gore and death. Usually these negative qualities are enough to force not to see a movie and deem it offensive.
However, due to its views on the Catholic Church and the inevitable discussion it will create between nonbelievers and believers, as a believer I felt it profitable to be educated on the content of the film. As far as its perception of the Catholic Church and Christianity in general, it does present many negative views of the Catholic Church, but not necessarily all of Christianity.
Personally, I feel that the movie realistically presented varying views on Christianity and the concept of faith, and accurately indicated that even devout members of the Church are not perfect and are subject to the same desires, temptations, and corrupted thinking that the devil persuades everyone else with. Negative —I love this movie, but I am giving it a negative not for the movie making quality but its portrayal of Christianity.
Mainly, I have seen many anti-Catholic comments here, also suggesting Catholicism cannot be identified with Christianity. However, most movie goers all around the world will definitely get the message the Church or Christianity is wrong. Also, the protagonist refused to say a clear answer to the question whether he believes in God. He is not even saying he is an agnostic, as we would know , this is simply to make the hero secular, and modern—like the modern trend or fashion.
Do they dare to make a movie like this against the Muslims, NO! I do believe it s true that the Roman Catholic Church is the church of the anti-Christ, who will rule the world in the last days, as the Bible foretold… the world must know that there is one Savior Jesus not good works, baptism, or church membership.
Satan is the father of lies! Believe the Bible. Positive —Yes!

A murder inside the Louvre, and clues in Da Vinci paintings, lead to the discovery of a religious mystery protected by a secret society for two thousand years, which could shake the foundations of Christianity. When Robert Langdon wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, he teams up with Dr. Sienna Brooks, and together they must race across Europe against the clock to foil a deadly global plot. An Eastern European tourist unexpectedly finds himself stranded in JFK airport, and must take up temporary residence there. A FedEx executive undergoes a physical and emotional transformation after crash landing on a deserted island.
The book contains several ambigrams created by real-life typographer John Langdon. The book also contains ambigrams of the words Earth , Air , Fire , and Water , which has served to bring the art of ambigrams to public attention by virtue of the popularity of the book. The plot follows Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon , as he tries to stop the Illuminati , a legendary secret society, from destroying Vatican City with the newly discovered power of antimatter. His chest is branded with an ambigram of the word "Illuminati". Kohler contacts Robert Langdon , an expert on the Illuminati, who determines that the ambigram is authentic. Kohler calls Vetra's adopted daughter Vittoria Vetra to the scene, and it is ascertained that the Illuminati have stolen a canister containing antimatter — a substance with destructive potential comparable to a small nuclear weapon.
