Unfortunately, the book almost always trumps the movie. To the film's credit, if I had only watched the movie, it would have been great. To the movie's detriment, I read the book first, and was glued to every page, delighted by the history and premise presented by Dan Brown. Unfortunately, it'... Read More »

This movie is honestly pretty bad in terms of plot and character development, but it's worth watching for some cool shots of beautiful locations and a very fun performance by Ian McKellen.

All around well done. Interesting ideas portrayed.

Audrey Tautou should do more American movies though needs hair at least as long as it was in this movie.

I had no desire to read the book or even see this movie but I finally decided to watch the movie for Tom Hanks. I loved his pairing with Adurey Tatou and although most of the film was lost on me, I really enjoyed the ending. I will at some point try to read the book and see if I can make any sense of it, but the movie was entertaining and Audrey and Tom do have great chemistry together.

The Da Vinci Code is a great film. It is focused around the conspiracy of the illuminati and Jesus Christ. Tom Hanks acted as Robert Langdon, the professor of symbology, also the protagonist of the film. A police detective and Langdon investigate a murder. The murder has some kind of code written beside it and needed to be interpreted. The code leads to more mysteries and Langdon deciphers them. The plot has a good mix of mystery, detective, suspense, and religion. I personally enjoyed this movie, it was very unique and creative. The movie has an incredible ending, with Langdon discovering a huge secret about Christianity. I recommend this movie to anyone interested in suspense and mystery-genre movies. I rate this movie 5/5 stars.

silly film and Tom Hanks is a stiff >> But you watch for the pseudo history, great locations and Audrey Tautou !!!!

An entertaining diversion with a few twists here and there.

the movie was good, nothing compared to the books by Daniel Brown, but, still worth watching. I am a fan of both series of books, and movies.
