“Angels and Demons” made an estimated $16.6 million on Friday to top the box office, beating out Star Trek. This is director Ron Howard and Tom Hanks second highest opening day. Angels is the prequel to Dan Brown’s best-selling “The Da Vinci Code”, but has not received the same attention or controversy. However, as a movie, Angels and Demons is much more entertaining than the Da Vinci Code movie. The action, suspense, plot and acting in Angels and Demons is more compelling and much more fun to watch. Additionally, the subtext about the connection between science and religion in Angels is respectful, insightful and allows for a possible reconciliation between the devoutly faithful and a strict academic.
