The Da Vinci Code Audience Reviews

Marketic It's no definitive masterpiece but it's damn close.
Console best movie i've ever seen.
Nayan Gough A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.
Billy Ollie Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
hmsboston-838-948825 I was surprised to learn that Paul Bettany was not nominated for best supporting actor by any recognized organization. He gave the most sympathetic performance in the film, in a perverse sort of way. He is the reason that the film stays on my mind after more than a decade.But I'm equally surprised that "The DaVinci Code" did not receive a Razzie nomination for worst on screen couple. There was absolutely no chemistry between Hanks and Tautou. It's not the 20-year age gap; that's common in movies. I suspect that a major problem is that the French actress is not comfortable acting in English-language films (which she rarely does).
qmtv OK, I only saw the last 45 minutes of this borefest, from the scene where Tom, Audrey Tautou, and Ian McKellen are in some church where tom throws the vile and Ian leaps for it. Best thing to shut the movie off after Ian falls to the ground. That leap was worth it. What follows is utter boredom, except for the part when Ian is thrown into the cop car and he's seen yelling out the window, embarrassing for Ian, but may find some laughs. I was laughing.I have not read the book, and I do not plan to watch the whole movie. I've read the Wikipedia and the user reviews for Best, Hated It, Loved It, and Chronological – about 10 each. I have nothing against rewriting accepted religious beliefs or conspiracy theories in movies. I just don't want them in real life. I believe all religion is a tool to control people, as in "give me your worldly possessions and you will have everlasting happiness after you die", or "Give me a hamburger today, and I'll pay you on Tuesday", or "I'll give you bigger better health insurance for a fraction of the price", or Well you get the point. It's a freaking con job. "We'll give the rich tax cuts, so that they will build bigger and better factories for you poor slobs to work" – Con job.Getting back to the The Da Vinci Bore. First Tom Hanks looks like he has his eyes shut, and someone painted eyes where he's closed eyelids are. Now, I respect Tom as an actor, because I've seen enough of his work to call him a good actor, not great, not that, but a good actor. So, first the acting sucks in this movie. Audrey Tautou, and Ian McKellen were also garbage.The story, from what I gathered from the reviews and Wikipedia is garbage. Some kind of mystery and that Jesus had children and descendants. I don't doubt that he did. Most kings and powerful people had kids. But, then we get a multi city tour of looking for clues, action, murder, mystery, (similar to James Bond, or Jayson Borne, or Star Wars, or Star Trek, or Avengers, or any other big budget spectacular nonsense). Only to find out that Audrey is the last of Jesus's descendants. OK! Take a look at the last scene with Tom after he realizes where Jesus's wife is buried. Wood comes to mind? Some user reviewer in the Loved It category with 10 stars vote, stated that the music was incredible. Well, no. Not incredible, only filler. For the money they spent on this crap they could have brought back Beethoven from the grave. Or just use Beethoven.This movie is garbage. It's filler. And that opinion has nothing to do with the religious implications. I've heard about this movie for years, of how great it was. And when I saw it was playing on HBO, I thought OK, I'll catch it. I'm glad I only saw the last 45 minutes. But I did spend time reading the reviews. Hated It (1 star) category has the best views with details of why they hate it. Loved It (10 star) category users love it, because they love it, to them it's just fantastic, but no substance.The name of the game is brainwash. Build it and they will come. But it must be promoted. Yes, they promoted this movie and people came. Propaganda. Tell the people it's great enough times and they will believe you. Tell the people up is down enough times and they will eventually believe you. A perfect example of this is the "movie" Star Wars VII, The Force Awakens. A cheap copy brainless excuse for the Disney film studios to put a product out that will make a profit. So what we have here is not art. Not thinking. They are telling you what and how to think. Freedom has a price. It's called thinking.
EBJ *I will try not to include spoilers but if I see the need will notify you priorGood: It is very interesting and the mystery behind it is intriguing. The acting is great. I like the way the music is very quiet at the start but as the story progresses to its climax, the music gets louder and more aggressive. The cinematography is quite mixed with some great shots but some that are just an eyesore. Interesting and compelling main protagonist with 'the descendant of Jesus' doing decent as well. Despite this, Ian McKellen steals the show with his obsessed, conniving villain.Bad: Some shots and majority of the lighting is very off putting and sometimes contradict their better counterparts. Once such example is an elevated shot of a castle which should look great but the lighting makes it appear to be very murky and it drastically obscures your vision. There are so many twists and turns which would normally be great and interesting but, for the most part and excluding the grand twist, they just seem to be there to add drama. It is also needlessly long and could be cut back a bit by about 30 minutes or so. There are a lot of scenes just dedicated to exposition and explaining every little fine detail about something. These are annoying and shows lack of directed storytelling. The monk, Silas, is just stupid as a character.they try to make us feel sympathy for him but he is clearly delusional. Insane villains can be compelling (The Joker, John Doe, Hannibal Lecter etc) but this is just sick and twisted and just uninteresting.*Potential Spoilers!!!Best Part: This is a movie without any particularly stand out scenes but the grand reveal of the true villain was more pop up than the rest of the movie.MVP: Ian McKellen as Sir Leigh Teabing7/10
brunofedericoluque First of all i don't believe in any of those things whatsoever because its all religious propaganda like always to make us believe that there's a higher being out there (?) The only movie I've seen so far about the whole holy grail thing that i actually like (and yes people face it) its Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade besides not believing in it One of the things i hate about people its that they are willing to believe in these things instead of face reality giving credit to nothing i remember a quote from a movie (i cant remember which) that says "Yeah right if you succeed in something yeah right sure THANK GOD now if that thing goes wrong its the DEVILS fault" Honestly do you except me to believe this? If you succeed getting a job you say "thank god for this" so you did nothing? Its zero effort for ya the thing about god its the same thing that applies for "asking help to others" and its simple: NONE GIVES YOU ANYTHING IF YA WANT IT GET IT YOURSELF BECAUSE NONE IS GOING TO HELP YOU NOT GOD NOT ANYONE and if ya want to give "God" a meaning, an explanation, fine from another movie i give you this "Gosd its just a child playing with an ant farm ain't doin nothing for mankind"By the way my family is catholic jeje
