Howard and Hanks team up to deliver a mystery/thriller based on a successful series of novels... and it kinda falls flat. The initial mystery driving the film is interesting. The whole conceit of religious documents and historical facts being intertwined in a way that could upend some previously held beliefs is intriguing. The ending of the film carries that point on, but it comes after a much elongated, slow-moving thriller with a typical bad guy plot wedged halfway through that feels needless and cliche. Maybe in the novel this stuff didn't feel as forced. As for the film, it just shows the flaws of the original story and leaves all thrills and character development at the door.

The story is about a murder in Louvre leads a cryptologist on a quest to uncover a secret that could rock the Christian world. The story is too deep and the acting is boring same as the directing.

The book read like a film and I had high hopes with Tom Hanks taking the lead. I probably put too much faith in Tom Hanks as the book was pure hokum and I ceased to read it when about 3/4 of the way through I realised people were actually taking it seriously. The characters were difficult to engage with emotionally, they were just cookie cutter stuff. Difficult not to laugh when Hanks character shouts "I've got to get to a library... Fast!" Must be a movie first and worth half a star itself.

The Da Vinci Code is nothing more than a murder mystery that's preposterous, overlong and saddled with a disappointing conclusion that defines the word "anticlimax". I avoided reading Dan Brown's novel before seeing the movie (and don't intend to read it now that I have sat through this adaptation).
I presume the book is more exciting than the movie. The Da Vinci Code is a mediocre thriller, with too few thrills and too much predictable action.
Around the two-hour mark of the film, the crime is essentially resolved. Thus leaving the movie about 30 minutes to lead to a needlessly long and predictable conclusion. The dialogue scenes of the film are more interesting than the action ones, because when it comes to explaining the conspiracy, The Da Vinci Code does an impressive job of …

Based on one of the most popular novels out now, the story follows "Robert Langdon" (Tom Hanks) and "Sophie Neveu" as they search for the most sought after relic in all mankind -- the Holy Grail. Together, they follow cryptic clues that sends them around the Eastern Hemisphere in search of the relic.
But, as they search, there are those who want them stopped at all cost. And they must watch their backs, or their search will end -- as well as their lives.
First of all, let me say that I have not read the novel. And after watching the movie a couple of times, I am less interested in reading the book than I was before seeing the film.
First of all, the only thing that will keep you interested is the clues that are presented. They are quite interesting in fact. Another thing that …
