The film follows the same trends as the other films. It's a relatively formulaic thriller with rather archetypical characters. There are some "twists", most of which are predictable, but one of which I found unexpected. Regardless, it is still an enjoyable film. It is fun to watch Langdon as he solves the mystery and the chaos around it. It's not the most well-made film, as the cinematography and the editing get a bit hectic, but you don't really go to this movie for the cinematic quality. Fans of the series watch this movie to see Tom Hanks solve an interesting mystery, and it delivers.
I completely understand why critics don't like this film. They didn't like the other two either. However, if you are a fan of the other films, like me, you will probably like this too.
