The Da Vinci Code — A great intrigue plunging into Christian myth — 8*/10

This great movie by director Ron Howard is a bit difficult to rate straight on. The reason for its initial popularity was the great intrigue and the fabulous backstory. Having seen it a second time today, I can say that the rest, beyond the visual, is as great. I will say no more beyond encouraging anyone who hasn't seen it to do so.

  • Known actors: Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Jean Reno, Ian McKellen, Paul Bettany, Alfred Molina and Jürgen Prochnow.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Entertainment value: Excellent the first time, then not so much.
  • Who is it for? Anyone who hasn't seen it.
