About the Movie
Dan Brown's international bestseller comes alive in the film The Da Vinci Code, directed by Ron Howard with a screenplay by Akiva Goldsman. Join symbologist Robert Langdon (Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, 1993 Best Actor, Philadelphia, and 1994 Best Actor, Forrest Gump) and cryptologist Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou) in their heart-racing quest to solve a bizarre murder mystery that will take them from France to England - and behind the veil of a mysterious ancient society, where they discover a secret protected since the time of Christ. With first-rate performances by Sir Ian McKellen, Alfred Molina and Jean Reno, critics are calling The Da Vinci Code "involving"* and "intriguing,"* "a first rate thriller."**

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: As a film derived from a book, The Da Vinci Code isn't a fiasco on the order of The Bonfire of the Vanities nor is it a triumph a la The Lord of the Rings. Instead, it's an acceptable but uninspired simulacrum.
Rotten: What's wrong with The Da Vinci Code can be summed up in one word: everything!
Better know French
I dont remember this when I saw this movie originally in the theaters here in the US, but all the scenes in France that didnt involve Tom Hanks were all in French. You miss half the movie because you dont have a clue what the actors are saying unless you understand the language.If you didnt read the book you would be totally lost. It would have been nice to know this before I paid $18 for the HD version of the movie.
I'm extremely disappointed. I've never seen the movie before, but I've been told by many that there should be English subtitles translating the spoken French, Latin, and Italian in this movie (which is a good chunk). I've been left guessing what they said. I want a refund!!! Definitely reporting the problem.
Um, I don't speak French
Not only are there no subtitles for the considerable amount of French dialog, there is no closed captioning. I'd like my money back for this one.
