Da Vinci Code, The


USA 2006, 149 minutes
Dir. Ron Howard
Rating: [M]
Genres: Suspense/Crime / Controversy

Topics: Religion.


Aroview: Adapted from Dan Brown's blockbusting novel, this rollicking, if over-weighty adventure has an American historian (Hanks) getting dragged into a murder case in the Louvre in Paris, which unveils a religious conspiracy in the Roman Catholic church stretching back 2000 years, seeking to 'rewrite' the true life of Christ.

Unfortunately he finds himself implicated in the murder and goes on the run, assisted by a police cryptologist (Tautou), in a desperate attempt to unravel a series of arcane clues and messages which will hopefully lead to the truth. Mixing in a variety of pulp speculations about the Holy Grail, Opus Dei, and the works of Leonard Da Vinci, this is finally too bloated to make much sense as either entertainment or history, but has its thrilling moments, while the lively support cast steal a few good scenes.
