Not as good as the book! The acting was a bit hammy in parts.
Cut out most of the DanBrown flair.
On a side note: The book is a 100% must read!

One of the most talked about novels of recent years has given the Hollywood treatment. This adaptation of the Dan Brown best selling novel was one of the most anticipated films of 2006, but the important question is, did it live up to all its hype?

I think this film was always going to be popular with some and unpopular with others. Just like with the Harry Potter films. People who read the books first aren't usually very impressed with the films, and people who haven't read the books usually enjoy the films.
I read lots of books and am quite well read. However, I have never been able to read the Da Vinci code. I have picked it up to read several times and usually a book of this size takes me a couple of days max. But I simply can't... (read more)

All reviews are subjective and based on perrsonal taste, especially movies and books. As I am not an avid reader (4 books per year), I can honestly say that after reading the book and seeing the movie afterwards, books ARE always better than their movie counterparts.
Tom Hanks didn't fill the role of the main character as I had envisioned while reading the book, not to mention his hair.
Honestly, if you didn't read the book, the movie could really be dull in spots and drag on.
Although the... (read more)

The Da Vinci Code, while staying loyal to the very readable book, somehow manages to be surprisingly dull. In fact it is so much like the book that there seems little point in, having read it, seeing it. That being said, It is hard to see how this on-screen adaptation could have been any better, it being scripted and acted relatively well. It seems that Dan Brown's best-seller just didn't translate to big-budget cinema. (read more)

What a great book The Da Vinci Code is, unfortunately it was turned into a mediocre film!
Do yourself a favour and read the book instead, along with Angels and Demons, which is even better! (read more)

Unlike most people I waited for the The Da Vinci Code film and found it quite plausible and at times quite believable. People who read the book first would always be comparing them. If this had been a straight forward Holywood film (not based on a book) it would have got far better reviews. The acting is really strong especially from Sir Ian and the storyline? Who can really say for sure Davy (read more)

The Da Vinci Code is rubbish and if you think it is not then I seriously question your judgement. Maybe you like being bored and listening to indecipherable nonsense being talked. (read more)

Would I recommend the Da Vinci Code? Tough question. If you have read the book then I would say you should give the film a go to see how it plays out onto the big screen. If you've not read it then I think you'd wonder what all the fuss was about judging from this film.
I have to admit I was looking forward to this film in a big way and felt pretty letdown by it at some points. The film starts off well enough but by the end, unfortunately, you just want them to wrap it up and call it a... (read more)
