5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & Exciting Chase Through History & Mystery w/ Panache, November 12, 2006

This review is from: The Da Vinci Code (Widescreen Two-Disc Special Edition) (DVD)
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!

"The Mook" is an idiot. Who cares what one believes about the history around Jesus...the story is very entertaining.

Oh. My. God.
What are people going to scam next?? Thank you, Steve, so much for alerting, Amazon, me, and others. What a weird and disturbing thing to do. No telling what purpose (probably monetary) they have for this. I also reported this to both the UK and US sites. My goodness.
Have a great week :)
