LEIGH PAATSCH OUT OF THE BOX

AN­GELS & DE­MONS, Chan­nel 9, 8.30pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Tuesday -

THIS Da Vinci Code se­quel is flat-out silly, a highly strung hunk of ham that plays games and pulls faces like one of those goofy Nic Cage Na­tional Trea­sure flicks. On the eve of a pa­pal elec­tion, mav­er­ick sym­bol­o­gist Robert Lang­don (Tom Hanks) has one night to solve a case in­volv­ing four kid­napped car­di­nals, or Vat­i­can City will be blown to high heaven. De­spite its eye­pop­ping lo­ca­tions and ten­sion­rid­dled race against time, it is sur­pris­ing how down­right dull An­gels & De­mons turns out to be. The ridicu­lous, over­ex­plana­tory di­a­logue sounds like peo­ple read­ing aloud from Wikipedia.
