Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: If only it were allowed to be merely a cheesy romp, an Indy Jones movie with more sophisticated stereotypes and far less humor. But apparently this is no mere pop novel-turned-high-hat megaplex product.
Rotten: The Catholic Church has nothing to fear from this film. It is not just tripe. It is self-evident, spirit-lowering tripe that could not conceivably cause a single member of the flock to turn aside from the faith.
Rotten: What's wrong with The Da Vinci Code can be summed up in one word: everything!
Rotten: I won't go so far as to recommend it, and I can't imagine ever wanting to see it again.
horrible, just horrible!
even audrey tatou the face of french cinema couldn't save this disaster!
Misguided on all levels
I write this review as a great fan of Tom Hanks (actor) and Ron Howard (director). But this particular movie had problems that the best acting and directing couldn't solve. For a movie that purports to present truth in the areas of general history, art history, church history, and biblical studies, the story (the book was this way too) missed on all counts. Even a simple examination of the story by a novice will reveal deep problems in Dan Brown's knowledge of simple facts of history, and though the movie (and book) carries a heart-racing, intriguing pace, the lack of substance leaves the viewer (and reader) empty. I have read the book and watched the film a few times, hoping there is more value somewhere in there, but there is not. There are simply too many misguided, mistaken, manipulated historical details that distract me and frustrate me each time I watch it. I would suggest you do not waste your time or money on this film.
This movie and the book are Fiction! It is not supposed to be really on any counts! The story line is wonderful amd so is the book. It is not real! I loved this movie and I think that for a person that likes suspense should watch this movie.
