DA VINCI CODE

 

For those remaining few like myself who knew nothing about the plot, here's the story: two two secret groups have been at war for centuries over information that could destroy the Roman Catholic Church, that Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene had a child and that their bloodline continues today.

Clues to this conspiracy can be found in a painting by Leonardo Da Vinci.

I found some individual scenes to be very entertaining, but as a whole it's a lumbering mess.

Remember, this is not a true story; it's just a movie. So enjoy the show.

It does an impressive job of blending fact, speculation, and pure fiction into a mix that is intriguing.

Anyone who has read Dan Brown's mega best seller will be surely disappointed in this theatrical version.

Ron Howard flexes his directorial muscles with great skill in this beautifully photographed rendition.

However, nothing can help the poorly written screenplay or hastily drawn characters.

Tom Hanks practically sleepwalks through his performance, turning a taut page-turner of suspense into a mediocre murder mystery.

Extremely disappointing.

Oscar-winning director Ron Howard and super-star actor Tom Hanks team up for the third time to adapt the Da Vinci Code into a movie.

One of the best selling fiction mystery novels of all time, the mission of the film was to be true to the book.

This complicated murder mystery uncovers a religious conspiracy.

The investigation, which spans Paris, London, and Edinburgh is like taking a Da Vinci Code tour of Europe.
