Da Vinci Code Movie Review

On The Patriot Insider today, I reviewed "The Da Vinci Code." As a Catholic, I really wasn't bothered by the story line. After all the book is a work of fiction. Anyone who gives it any credence is very misinformed.

I read the book and did not enjoy it. While I thought the concept was somewhat original, I thought the writing style and use of language was deficient. I also thought that the story, which referenced art and architecture was far too visual and did not work well within the novel format.

The movie solved the visual problem and the screenplay was adequate. Ron Howard is an excellent filmmaker and Tom Hanks is a wonderful actor. However, the story is still fairly boring. While it wasn't a terrible movie, it certainly wasn't great.

My rating for the movie would be a bogey. I'd liken it to missing a three foot putt on an easy par 3.

Previous ratings:

How would you compare it to your run of the mill dopey thriller, like "The Bourne Identity?"

I never saw Bourne, but one positive thing about Da Vinci was that the hero's didn't face D-Day levels of gunfire and emerge unscathed.

Sadly, it appears, not only is the language tortuous, but the originality is in question as well! http://www.nytimes.com/2006/06/07/books/07brow.html
