Quick Review: Da Vinci Code

Da Vinci Code (The Movie) wasn’t that bad.

Da Vinci Code PosterI found the film “softer” than I expected in terms of its challenge to Christianity, and I guess the movie investment was so high that they wanted to minimize the risk.

In effect, the argument made solely through the movie is largely sketchy and unconvincing. I guess the book makes a slighter better case against the Christian narrative; but since I’ve not read the book, that’s just a guess.

Back to the movie… I felt it was finely crafted. I did feel Tom Hanks looked too old and jaded, but in the movie his character worked reasonably well.

I enjoyed the quest angle; and it felt like a more serious version of National Treasure.

The pace of the film was also good; and it didn’t drag too much, and kept me reasonably engaged.

All this “middle-ground” critique suggests that while I liked the movie, I didn’t really love it. I enjoyed watching it, but I don’t think I’d watch it again any time soon.

If I was to grade it like a paper, I would most easily give Da Vinci Code a “B”… effective in accomplishing its goal, but never excelling/pushing the limits.
