| Mystery thriller set in Florence , Venice and Istanbul ; plenty of suspense , twists and turns
The Dan Brown's international best-seller is brought to life in this film directed by Ron Howard (Cinderella man) with screenplay by David Koepp and starred by Tom Hanks (Oscar winner for Philadelphia -1993- and Forrest Gump -1994-) as the symbol expert named Robert Langdon , Felicity Jones as Dr. Sienna Brooks , among others . The story talks the Symbologist Robert Langdon ,as he wakes up in an Italian hospital with amnesia ; he is being treated by Dr Brooks who hopes will help him recover his memories , when there appears a series killer (Ana Ularu) attempting to kill them . Both of them escape and join forces , being pursued by Carabinieris , officers from World Health Organization and a dark organization . Meanwhile , a millionaire , Dante fanatic (Ben Foster) has supposedly developed a new biological plague that will kill off a large portion of the world's population in order to quickly solve the problem of the world's impending overpopulation , citing the Doomsday Argument . Together , Langdon and Brooks , must race across various cities (Florence , Venice , Istanbul) to foil a criminal plot ; being chased by people from the World Health Organization (Omar Sy) , and one of them (Sidse Babett Knudsen) is someone he knows . As they go through the obscure conspiracy that lies before them and run against the clock to avoid a deadly global scheme .

This thrilling movie is a genuine ripping yarn with intrigue , mystery , tension and outstanding surprises . Inferno is a moving mystery thriller based upon the novel by American author Dan Brown and the fourth book in his Robert Langdon series , following Angels & Demons , Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol . The book was released in 2013 and it was number one American Best Seller list for hardcover fiction and Combined Print & E-book fiction . In comparison with the previous two films that focused more on solving codes and riddles and religious against science situations , Inferno (2016) focuses more on moral dilemmas , global diseases , memory loss and character development.

Nice interpretations all around , as main cast as support actors . Tom Hanks gives a magnificent acting , as always , as the American professor of Symbology at Harvard University relentlessly pursued by police forces or organizations and attempting stop a madman from unleashing a global virus that would wipe out half of the world's population . Attractive Felicity Jones , she is pretty good as Dr. Sienna Brooks who teams up with Langdon to discover a malicious world plot . Stunning Ben Foster as Bertrand Zobrist , he is a transhumanist genius scientist , a brilliant geneticist and magnate who is obsessed with Dante's Inferno , he is intent on solving the world's overpopulation problem by releasing a virus . Charming Sidse Babett Knudsen as Elizabeth Sinskey , the former Robert's love interest , and nowadays the head of the World Health Organization . Sympathetic Ida Darvish as Marta Alvarez , an employee at the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence who assists Langdon with Dante's death mask . Splendid Ana Ularu as the Consortium's agent in Florence who has orders to follow Langdon but is later disavowed by The Consortium , she falls after a confrontation with Robert and Sienna in the Palazzo Vecchio . Furthermore , Omar Sy and Irrfan Khan as two suspect spies . Stirring and evocative score by Hans Zimmer who composed the music of the three Robert Langdon films . In comparison to Code Da Vinci (2006) and Angels and Demons (2009), where the music was mostly orchestral with a few cues of electronic music , this film has a heavier electronic content . Colorful cinematography by Salvatore Totino , this is the only film of the trilogy to be shot with a 1:85:1 Widescreen aspect ratio, as well as the only one to be shot digitally . Being shot on location , this is the second film where Robert Langdon is in Italy , with the first film being Angels and demons , though the majority of the film was shot in Hungary for budgetary reasons . The picture lavishly produced by Brian Grazer was compellingly directed by Ron Howard , this is the fifth collaboration between Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard . Although it had a budget of $75 million, which was much lower than the first two installments.

As usual , there are several cultural , artistic , historical references , including the followings : a modified version of Botticelli's Map of Hell , which itself is based on Dante's Inferno , Dante's death mask , the Battle of Marciano by Vasari . And historical , known locations : the Palazzo Vecchio , Florence , Il Duomo , the Florence Baptistry , Palace and square of Sain Marcos of Venice and the Hagia Sophia and inside Basilica Cistern , in Istanbul, where Enrico Dandolo is buried. The latter was a Doge of Venice from 1192 until his death. He is remembered for his blindness , longevity, and shrewdness, and is infamous for his role in the Fourth Crusade and the Sack of Constantinople in which he , at age ninety and blind , led the Venetian contingent , he led to the conquest and sack of Constantinople on April 12, 1204, an event at which Dandolo was present and in which he played a directing role .
