Angels and Demons Review

I went and saw Dan Browns "Angels and Demons" this weekend. Directed by Ron Howard and Tom Hanks playing the leading role (one of my favorite actors). It is constantly moving thriller that brings age old questions. Dan Brown knows enough about history and science to make it interesting and informative. He thens weaves a fictional story around those elements. One scientific element makes it exciting but very highly improbable. That is antimatter in amounts large enough to destroy a city. The science is good, but for the amount of antimatter produced at CERN in the large Haldron Collider. The Illuminati was an actual secret organization at the end of the 18th century in Germany, but was eliminated and or disbanded. I liked the part that comes through how certain religious people (a priest) has to manufactor an old enemy to try and gain control of the Vatican. I am giving too much away. It is fun, infomative, action packed thriller that makes one think. I love it.
