The Da Vinci Code

The Da Vinci Code
5 out of 5 stars

Right, I have never read the book. But I saw the trailer the other day and the only thing I could think of was that it looks like a great action movie. Everyone will tell you its about the last supper, christianity or whatever. No no NO! Its a full blown fictional thriller/action movie! Its got pistols, submachine guns, land rover, planes, cop car chases, Sony Ericsson W850 and the crypto thing. I have to say, the whole story is made up by ingeniusly stiching up myths, legends such as the Templar Knights and stuff. Absolutely enthralling.

Tom Hanks was just a great professor and Audrey Tautou was fantastic too (very attractive in this one compared to her other movies). The settings in the story were great from: la Louvre to Westminster Abbey.

"But it doesn't match the same story in the book... nag nag nag... there were 2 crypto things weren't there". The answer to that moan is: Do you really want to be cinema for 6 hours? I felt it was pretty snappy and the combination of modern day life and the 300AD stuff made it a great way to spend 2 hours.

    It may be a great story/book, but it should be noted that it is a exactly that, a story – FICTION. A lot of the so called "facts" in the book are inaccurate, and discredit the church.

    Curious viewers/readers should read further on the subject, books such as "cracking the da vinci code" (available from all good stockists) and discover the truth!

    It goes without saying that its fiction. Its bizzare that people would think otherwise. When you pick up a novel do you asume it to be real? I would always assume something to be fiction unless it was to say otherwise, especially when its a bestseller and written in the style it is.
