Consensus: Senselessly frantic and altogether shallow, Inferno sends the Robert Langdon trilogy spiraling to a convoluted new low.

Inferno is better than The Da Vinci Code or Angels & Demons, but both of those films set the bar reprehensibly low.

Ron Howard's mostly lame adaptation of Dan Brown's wholly lame novel.

Is it as good as the first two films? No. But because of the formula there are still pleasures to be had, and director Howard does a good job of integrating the medieval images and keeping viewers off-balance.

Neither colorful photography nor Tom Hanks can make up for a lack of focus.

With some of the least clever puzzles in the Brown oeuvre, "Inferno" proves that even hell can be made boring.
