Blasphemous nonsense with decent score
Verified purchase
I'm only a very recent convert, not some learned theologian, but even I can see this is just blasphemous drivel, riddled with factual errors so blatant that they have to be intentionally malicious towards the one religion that it seems is institutionally and societally acceptable to mock.

Christians are usually far too quick to sit back, forgive and forget, when that is not actually what is taught (repentance is required for forgiveness), so it was refreshing to look back and see the collective backlash from the church to this film at the time of its release.

Too bad the views of millions of people are more easily influenced by the dross that comes out of satanic Hollywood than the word of God. The only redeeming feature is Zimmer's epic score.

The Extended Version
Verified purchase
I've always liked the film. I mean obviously it's a load of old tosh, but one doesn't watch something like this for accurate insights into Christian doctrine or world history! It's just enjoyable nonsense.

The added minutes (for there is a not insubstantial 20-25 minutes of them) don't add hugely to the story (unlike the LOTR extended versions, I don't even like to watch the original version anymore) but it's just more of a good thing really.

My only gripe is there are no subtitles provided for the extended version on Amazon video, which for the hard of hearing or people who can't have the telly too loud due to sleeping children etc is a bit annoying.

Great fun
Verified purchase
An enjoyable thriller with great cast and story line of hidden truths which the powerful will kill to suppress. The Chronicle TV series and the follow-up book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail (1982) postulated the core idea and Dan Brown built a story with this at the centre. If you are a fervent believer I would ignore this movie as it will only upset. For the rest watch and enjoy.

Great film talent, confusing script, nonsense story... and this is what you get!
Verified purchase
I expect the embarrassingly limited success of the film, such as it was, must stand on a certain contemporary appetite for conspiracy theories. I haven't read the Dan Brown book, but I can only presume that it makes more sense than this confused mess. It feels compressed to the point of meaninglessness. I honestly laughed out loud twice at its badness. There are so many wonderful film talents involved in this movie... I can only presume they wake up in the night sweating with anxiety and regret when they think about their involvement in this project.

good film, need to be awake with all the twists going on
Verified purchase
Why do people by Dvd/Blu-ray of films when they think the film is crap. Just so they can get off on written
bad reviews. I had seen the film before on dvd, and it was fine, you did have to watch it all, with all the twists
in the story., But I get p***** off with all these people given out loads of bad reviews because when they saw it first
at the cinema, and then buy the film on disc's.

The Da Vinci Code
Verified purchase
Robrrt Langdon finds himself inbolvef in a murder and a mystery involving Opus Dei The Priory of Sion and a secret that could destroy the Catholic Church.
This is one of my all time favourite films. The cast is superb and the story contains more twists and turns then you can imagine. Finally the film contains what is in my opinion one of the best soundtracks ever recorded
Highly recommended.

A Wright Royal performance of Biblical proportions from T.Hanks.
Verified purchase
An Amazing tale and the truth is there will be thousands of descendants by now.
A couple of historic errors like the Senechaux used to serve the Pope's dinner on a silver tray paraded through Rome and then test the food first.
Also Dan missed a few tricks that could have added gravitas to the story. Like Da Vinci painted 2 versions of Madonna and Child. One is in Paris, where they filmed and another is in London, where they also filmed. Mary and baby Jesus or the babies of Jesus and Mary.
If you look at The Last Supper properly you will see two figures that look like ladies.
A few word plays they could have used. Princess means Sarah and Sophie means Wisdom. Plus Andre Vernet in English Andrew Green is a great friend of mine that I miss at the moment.
All Said and done excellent 1 million percent from me.

PS: AS he linked Jesus to the Royals he could have used the bible itself: King James version of course.

A thoroughly engrossing and intriguing film
Verified purchase
Based on the bestselling and intriguing novel by Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code stays wisely close to the book and portrays Brown's flair for combining fact, fiction and action into a very entertaining experience. Tom Hanks, as brilliant as in his previous films, heads the cast as Robert Langdon: a symbologist who studies the hidden meanings behind symbols and legends. He is accompanied by a very gifted supporting cast that include Audrey Tatou, Iank Mckellen, Jean Reno, Paul Bettany and Alfred Molina.
Ron Howard directs this film with an eye for action, emotion and landscape and his sweeping shots and simplistic elegance make this film all the more engaging. Akiva Goldsman pens Dan Brown's novel into film and a good job he's done too, including all the relevant details and retaining the historic fact that made the novel so interesting and suprising. The twists are, if you are ignorant to the novel, suprising and the action is suitably stages and is never over done so that it undermines the elegance of the history behind the story. Hans Zimmer delivers a sweeping, epic soundtrack and his score goes a long way in making this film all the more brilliant.
Overall, The Da Vinci Code is one of the most entertaining films ever made: it is intriguing, engrossing, brilliantly acted and directed and provides historic detail that is so interesting it will make you want to hunt for the holy grail yourself.
Ignore the critics who are slating this film's historical innacuracy, and just sit back and enjoy this awesome film. Besides whose to say this film is not accurate, is there proof that the grail wasn't in fact a person and that the priory of sion exist? You decide, the book and film certainly made me into a believer.
The extras are admittedly a little light so i would recommend buying the extended to disc edition that not only gives you half an hour extra of film but hours of interesting bonus features.
