The Da Vinci Code

Read more reviews.

Maybe it's just because it got so many bad reviews, but I thought it was great. Entertaining but far less exciting/enthraling than the book but that's always the case. I really have no idea what most reviewers were expecting, but I thought it did a fair job recreating Dan Brown's religous mystery. There were definitely a couple of bad moments, but certainly no out of place laughter and people in the theater actually applauded when it was over.

Most of the reviews at Rotten Tomatoes are pretty indicative of the problem with movie critics. You've got one complaining the albino monk (Silas) "isn't any fun" and another that it's too long. Useless and hypercritical as usual.

Really worth seeing whether you read the book or not. Just enjoy the damn thing.

Thanks for the heads up, I vaguely recall visiting Film Crown before but I'm not sure. I signed up and posted this review over there.
