I agree wholly with John's review. The Last Templar will delight and entertain as long as you take it for what it is - an interesting story in the vein of The DaVinci Code that will provide both laughs and adventure. If you have an open mind, it may even get you thinking.

Compared to the novel on which the movie was based, the character of Tess is funnier, wittier, and more enchanting on screen than on page. This is due in part to the wonderful portrayal of the character by Mira Sorvino who more than "surprises as a credible intellectual", as fellow reviewer Scott expressed - Sorvino is a Harvard alum who graduated magna cum laude and speaks fluent Chinese and French. She IS a credible intellectual cast in a part that allows her to show that side of her personality. Scott Foley, who portrays Agent Sean Reilly and of whom I've seen less work, was more of a surprise to me, playing the devout Catholic with humor and a touch of whimsy.

Having been raised Catholic but no longer practicing, I found the debates between Tess and Sean about religion to be very interesting and reminiscent of those between my mother and I. The overall theme of exactly what the Templar treasure is will garner your attention, but play second fiddle to the chemistry between Foley and Sorvino.

(Major plot spoiler warning) The one criticism I have is that the film version doesn't explain the treasure as successfully as the novel does. In the novel it is very clear that the treasure is a faked version of the gospel of Jesus, with the intent that it be used to unite all religions. In the film, the ending Templar scenes make the viewer aware the document was falsified, but the reasoning for doing so is never made clear, nor will the viewer necessarily catch this fact the first time through.

I enjoy reading other peoples comments because Ive found that those
that criticise usually guide me to a good movie. What ever happened to watching a story just for the sake of being entertained, not "the
dialogue was bad, the plot was terrible, and best of all-Oh that could
never happen." Of course not! It a fictitious story! I enjoyed this story
just because I enjoyed it, does that make me shallow minded, who cares.
Will it win any awards, probably not, will I watch it again, wait till
I get my own copy and can sit back with my daughter and a big bowl of
popcorn. Does that make me a critic, far from it, I just know what I
like, and I enjoyed this one greatly.

Having previously read (and enjoyed) the book, I wasn't too sure what the movie might bring. I was pleasantly surprised. A female Indiana Jones-type archeologist and an FBI agent team up to discover why 4 thieves dressed as Templar Knights of old rob a prominent gallery on horse-back. A fine rollicking adventure movie in the spirit of Jones. My only disappointment (if you can call it that) was insufficient emphasis on the twist at the end. If you haven't read the book this fantastic development is almost lost in the need to wrap up the story. The script does let the actors down in a couple of places, but the action sequences were well composed. Overall - I thoroughly enjoyed.

Mira Sorvino plays Tess Chaykin, an archaologist who attends the opening night of an exhibition of Vatican treasures at the New York Metropolitan Museum. The event is interrupted when four horsemen, dressed as knights templars, rob the museum of some of the treasures, most notably an ancient decoder.

Tess has more success solving the crime than the FBI does and cooperates, reluctantly with FBI agent Sean Daley. They embark on a quest to find the killer and perhaps find the legendary treasure of the templars in the process.

This two part TV movie was based on a novel (see The Last Templar) and some changes have been made of course. I think they managed to get most of the important details from the novel into the movie, with one big exception: The villain's motivation. It is not very clear in the movie. There are some too many convienient coincidences that don't seem very credible.

The book was entertaining but not great and the same goes for the movie. After reading some reviews I thought it would be really bad and it had its flaws but I enjoyed it.

I like these mini-series/Indiana Jones/DaVinci Code/Librarian-themed movies.
THIS one has escaped my attention until I read a review from a CPO onboard a Navy Destroyer.
He thinks the way
I
do... if it entertains you, and it makes you think --- but not enough to make your brain hurt ---
it's a winner!
Other such films I've enjoyed are:
Ancient Relic... REALLY long AND weird. An "ancient" video-camera in Jesus' tomb? Hmmm!
Librarian : The Curse Of The Judas Chalice
The Librarian - Quest for the Spear
The Librarian - Return to King Solomon's Mines
Miracles - The Complete Series
Meteor, in-as-much-as it's 190 minutes.

This is a made for TV movie. Although at times it is noticeably so, it is overall well done and great fun. I have watched it several times and it is fun enough to watch more than once. The basic premise is along the lines, but different, of the Da vinci code and follows closely the book by the same name. The movie leaves you wondering, but in a light way. It follows the book very closely, but it is hard to put the emotional level in the end (during recuperation on the island - cannot say more without spoiling) that is found in the book. Many times the movie is not close to the book. In this case, they are similar in quality and detail.
