Just remember, I’m not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they’ll end up on the Tomatometer. Let’s take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.
In what mostly just feels like a contractual obligation rather than a true artistic choice, Tom Hanks is back playing Robert Langdon in Ron Howard’s Inferno. I don’t want to shock you here, but the premise in this flick has Langdon tracking down the roots of a deep historical secret that could shake the fabric of the world if it got out. If that sounds familiar don’t worry because it’s basically the premise of every Dan Brown book (and subsequent movie). This is the third flick in the Robert Langdon franchise, preceded by The Da Vinci Code (25%) and Angels & Demons (37%), both directed by Ron Howard… and we don’t expect to do much better with critics than those titles.
Early reviews have Inferno in line with the other films in this franchise.The number of early reviews that have already been submitted have this one locked in as another stinker, with critics calling it “silly”, “clumsy”, and “soulless”… and it really doesn’t stop there. It’s sitting at 23% now, and it’s hard to imagine it going up much as we get closer to the release date.
