The Da Vinci Code
- The Da Vinci Code
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.
