Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Critics and controversy aside, The Da Vinci Code is a verifiable blockbuster. Combine the film's huge worldwide box-office take with over 100 million copies of Dan Brown's book sold, and The Da Vinci Code has clearly made the leap from pop-culture hit to a certifiable franchise. The leap for any story making the move from book to big screen, however, is always more perilous. In the case of The Da Vinci Code, the plot is concocted of such a preposterous formula of elements that you wouldn’t envy screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, the man tasked with making this story filmable. The script follows Dan Brown’s book as closely as possible while incorporating a few needed changes, including a better ending. And if you’re like most of the world, by now you’ve read the book and know how it goes: while lecturing in Paris, noted Harvard Professor of Symbology Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) is summoned to the Louvre by French police to help decipher a bizarre series of clues left at the scene of the murder of the chief curator. Enter Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou), gifted cryptologist. Neveu and Langdon team up to solve the mystery, and from there the story is propelled across Europe, ballooning into a modern-day mini-quest for the Holy Grail, where secret societies are discovered, codes are broken, and murderous albino monks are thwarted… oh, and alternative theories about the life of Christ and the beginnings of Christianity are presented too, of course. It’s not the typical formula for a stock Hollywood thriller. In fact, taken solely as a mystery, the movie almost works--despite some gaping holes--mostly just because it keeps moving. Brown’s greatest trick was to have the entire story take place in one day, so the action is forced to keep moving, despite some necessary pauses for exposition. As a screen couple, Hanks and Tautou are just fine together but not exactly memorable; meanwhile Sir Ian McKellen’s scenery-chewing as pivotal character Sir Leigh Teabing is just what the film needed to keep it from taking itself too seriously. The whole thing is like a good roller-coaster ride: try not to think too much about it--just sit back and enjoy the trip. --Daniel Vancini

Product Description

Dan Brown's international bestseller comes alive in the film The Da Vinci Code, directed by Ron Howard with a screenplay by Akiva Goldsman. Join symbologist Robert Langdon (Academy Award® winner Tom Hanks, 1993 Best Actor, Philadelphia, and 1994 Best Actor, Forrest Gump) and cryptologist Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou) in their heart-racing quest to solve a bizarre murder mystery that will take them from France to England - and behind the veil of a mysterious ancient society, where they discover a secret protected since the time of Christ. With first-rate performances by Sir Ian McKellen, Alfred Molina and Jean Reno, critics are calling The Da Vinci Code "involving"* and "intriguing,"* "a first rate thriller."**

The Da Vinci Code is a movie that has been the object of critics' scorn since Cannes. Therefore when I went in my expectations were quite low. I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed this intellectual treasure hunt. Action sequences boldly intertwine with quieter scenes where codes and symbols are being deciphered to lead to the next clue. At times we get the back story of what has happened to a persecuted religious sect through out the ages. The flashbacks to ancient Rome are brief but beautiful. In addition there are some gorgeous locations for filming, among them the Louvre and Rosslyn.

Hanks and Tautou perform like the pros that they are--it is interesting that two actors known for their whimsical charms were cast in such serious roles. Generally actors starring in thrillers will be those known for their laconic delivery and quietly passionate intensity. However, Tom Hanks was playing a professor of symbology and as such he did a fine job.

The supporting cast reads like a list of international superstars: Alfred Molina, Ian McKellen, Jean Reno and Jurgen Prochnow--all were superb.

One of things I liked about this film is how it gave the audience the opportunity to view the world from the perspective of someone who is used to looking at symbols and their meanings, in particular of things that most of us don't even notice most of the time. It was an unusual and fascinating angle on perception.

This a movie that tries to pack some very deep concepts into the thriller/treasure hunt genre. Overall I think it succeeds rather well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Exciting Chase Through History & Mystery w/ Panache November 12, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Prepare to be entertained. Having read the novel first, and also armed with the blasting reviews the film received, I kept my expectations low as I prepared to see this movie. However this is a very fine film. I found it respectful and tasteful in presentation of those sensitive issues which seem to be so threatening to so many. Besides it's just plain beautiful to look at. The scenery and cinematography is not to be missed, and keep your eyes moving about the backgrounds and details as you watch.

Of course, few films can capture better the scope and mental details we add as we read an intelligently written book, but one would really be missing out to avoid seeing this one. I don't believe the filmmakers were seriously looking to convert anyone, merely create enjoyable and thought-provoking entertainment. I'd personally rather have something to think about during and after a film other than not, which is so often the case today.

There are also some nice goodies packaged in this DVD set, and I'm looking forward to receiving my copy. If you have any interest in history whatsoever, or in mindbenders, you should enjoy this. Without the background interest? It is, after all, an action adventure movie filmed in incredible places! See it!

3.0 out of 5 stars No Masterpiece, But Worth Seeing May 29, 2006
Format:DVD
It's readily agreed that director Ron Howard's uneven adaptation of the Dan Brown best-seller will not win any major awards. When considering the expository nature of the source material, it's amazing that "The Da Vinci Code" came off as well as it did. Though overlong and rather talky in spots, Howard has crafted a diverting mystery-thriller that benefits immeasurably from Sir Ian McKellan's bravura performance. Audrey Tautou is the ideal Sophie, but Tom Hanks cannot overcome his miscasting as Professor Robert Langdon. Still, it's a brave attempt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Controversial view, but Great Film and Book November 12, 2006
Format:DVD
Leonardo Da Vinci is and was one of the most brilliant men in history. He was an artist, inventor, and architect of unparalleled genius.

While the novel (and now film) by Dan Brown titled "The Da Vinci Code" remains controversial due to it's subject matter, it is nevertheless an intelligent and entertaining piece of fiction (...or perhaps even nonfiction).

This film explored the history of Christianity and the power of religion, as well as the importance and significance of symbolism in all walks of life.

For those who read the book before they see the movie, you might notice that while the film is very well-made (I would expect nothing less from director Ron Howard) it does seem to have a problem with it's need for a large amount of exposition. It seemed to me that 70% of the film was straight exposition, or information/backstory that needed to be told in order for the events taking place to make sense. This was done mostly in interesting imagery, or flashbacks.

Basically, the book had a little difficulty translating onto film mainly because there was just so much information and material to explain. In the book format, the story was told beautifully, seamlessly, and with the perfect amount of explanation at the right times. Each chapter of the book ended in a cliffhanger, which is part of what made the book so electrifying and hard to put down. The film felt rushed in the sense that the characters had to give the audience a lot of information in a compact period of time, and by doing this it came across much less seamlessly. It also didn't quite have that intense "cliffhanger" kind of feeling.

However, I applaud this film and it's efforts to explore such difficult subject matter.

There are at least two places on the front of the DVD sleeve and two additional places on the front of the DVD case where there is micro printing found. Look carefully with a strong magnifying glass and you can find it.

Re-name the Gold Box to "DVD Box"
Dvd sets are popular items, esp as Christmas gifts. I don't mind them being a regular offering, as long as there is a substantial discount off a high priced set.

Any Idea on the cryptex?
Actually - It looks like the same cryptex that the Nobel Collection sold.

US Extended Edition
I'm guessing there will be a second release of the extended cut a few months later, to make US consumers double dip on the same title.

Sucks, huh?
