“There’s a switch. If you throw it, half the people on Earth will die, but if you don’t in a hundred years the human race will be extinct.” These gloomy words is the first thing you hear at the start of the latest collaboration between multi Oscar winner Tom Hanks and Oscar winning director, Ron Howard, based on the best selling series of novels from Dan Brown.
Robert Langdon (Hanks) wakes up in a hospital with no memory of how he got there. He barely has time to consult with the on-duty physician, Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) when someone shows up and attempts to kill him and anyone else in the way. Langdon and Brooks find themselves on the run and discover a large number of people are after them. Langdon’s memory only comes back in pieces, but he soon discovers he is on the trail of a madman’s plot to release a disease inspired by Dante’s Inferno. It’s a race against the clock, but should Langdon actually stop the threat?
