Over the weekend we saw a couple of movies. The first was The DaVinci Code. I was very much looking forward to this movie, and unfortunately, that usually means disappointment. This case was no exception.
The DaVinci Code stars three very talented actors… Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, and Ian McKellen. The story seemed like it had a lot of potential, but I would have to say that in the end, this movie was only mildly entertaining. It moves fairly slow, and the story was a little different than I had thought. I was under the impression that the movie revolved around ‘clues’ left in famous artwork, and codes hidden in plain sight. To some degree this was true, but it was far less than I thought. Also, for a movie called The DaVinci Code… DaVinci wasn’t talked about all that much… only a couple of scenes.
Overall, I wouldn’t steer someone away from this film, but don’t go in expecting too much, and don’t go in tired, or you may fall asleep.
