        davinci code was not good. angels and demons was fantastic. here's hoping they get someone who can continue the Langdon saga in the same vein as A&D not DC.

          Hm... well, I haven't seen either film, but I know that both films were deemed mediocre by critics. Perhaps this change is necessary for the franchise.
