I blinked and missed it in theaters. Despite the reviews, I'll more than likely pick this up since I have the others. And what's up with the bad photo-shopping? All the promos and movie posters were just as bad. That was a quick turnaround to home video.

The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons may have been just the beginning...but this is definitely the end. No more Langdon movies, although I thought this was watchable enough.

I saw this in the theater and thought it was entertaining for the most part. Although it's yet another convoluted Dan Brown end of the world story.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that it was a domestic box office bomb. Too much time had passed since the second movie (7 years) and I guess there wasn't much interest in this sequel or the subject matter.

I'll probably pick this up, but definitely not right away. I'll probably wait until it hits $15 or less.

That BD artwork is terrible and it's actually the official movie poster artwork. Hanks and Jones look like street paintings.

The biggest problem with the movie is they copped out with the ending. The book's ending was pretty cool. The movie just plays it safe.

Regardless, watch it for Hanks...he's a fantastic actor.

Re: Inferno UHD, BD, DVD -- 1/24/17

As mentioned in a different thread, Best Buy sent out a $10 off coupon for anything in store to some customers via e-mail.

So, I decided to use it today to pick up the 4K UHD version of Inferno.

Strangely, they only had the Steelbook version of the UHD. No regular edition UHDs in stock. I checked on Best Buy's website later in the day and no store in a 250 mile radius carried the regular UHD. WTF? I'm guessing they never got them in stock?

Anyways, so I picked up the Steelbook and it came out to $20 and change after the coupon. But, I really don't like the artwork as seen in post #4. Also, not a Steelbook collector either.

I haven't opened it yet, but I'm debating waiting a few days and see if they get the regular UHD in stock and I'll swap it out.

Re: Inferno UHD, BD, DVD -- 1/24/17

So 2 days later it still looks like no Best Buy within 250 miles is carrying the regular non-steelbook edition.

I decided to go ahead and keep the steelbook.

That's really strange.

Re: Inferno UHD, BD, DVD -- 1/24/17

Absolutely no desire to get that steelbook. I went the Target route and got it during that 20% off sale. That with the Redcard discount was good enough for me.

I finally got a chance to see it. It wasn't bad, but it felt very uneven. I also didn't like the rushed feel and the camerawork to go with it. I know the story is that way, but after the first two, they could have paced this one more evenly. Picture looked good, but the Atmos sound is fantastic. Really good stuff. Kind of sad this will probably be the last, but if Ron Howard goes in this direction, I'd rather he stop making these. Or get Dan Brown to write something a bit less frenetic.

I've been working on my review of this and while I wasn't happy with them changing the ending, the best stuff in 'Inferno' actually has to do with the relationship between Langdon and his former colleague - which was a creation of this movie's screenplay (by David Koepp) and not part of the novel. Perhaps a Langdon movie written directly for the screen would solve some of the clunkiness that all three of these book to screen adaptations have had. Alas, probably too late now.

Re: Inferno UHD, BD, DVD -- 1/24/17

I actually thought Brown wrote the novel sort of as a screenplay. It certainly went along that path without doing any serious backstory to anything. Who knows, if Howard and Hanks want to do another, they very well could. Doing a story witten directly for the screen would probably be the best option at this point.
