The Da Vinci Code Reviews

Every time Langdon starts to educate Sophie, the urge to tune out is overwhelming.

Ron Howard doesn't so much solve The Da Vinci Code as preserve it under glass. It's a bloodless best-seller adaptation, competent but uninspiring, rather like the vast bulk of Howard's long filmography.

Retarded, ridiculous and crushingly dull.

The Da Vinci Code is exactly the sort of pot-boiling movie the readable but preposterous (and poorly written ) novel deserves.

One could classify The Da Vinci Code as diverting, but it has sidestepped greatness by a wide margin.

In a marketplace rife with guides for idiots, dummies and the rest of us, this movie stands as the novel's priciest CliffsNotes.

How can a film contain so many clues yet remain utterly clueless?

Even as a visual aid, The Da Vinci Code is a deep-dyed disappointment. Paris by night never looked murkier.

Murphy's Movie Reviews

Over the course of two and one-half hours, the film unfolds in a series of dull and unengaging episodes.

| Original Score: C-

Donald Munro
Fresno Bee

Director Ron Howard and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman have remained profoundly faithful to the text, though it's harder for them to recapture the summer-beach feel of the book.

EDGE Boston

Monotonous, colorless and entirely too serious, the film self-flagellates all the fun out of Dan Brown's story.

Absent is the pure guilty joy of sequential puzzle-solving; instead of participating in the hunt, we're shoved off to the side as a couple of crashing boors do it for us.

A jumble of historical myth, religious symbology and international thriller-action makes for an unwieldy, bloated melodrama.

Edward Douglas
ComingSoon.net

Way too long and duller than watching Da Vinci's paint dry...takes away the book's little credibility and makes the flaws more obvious.

Ron Howard's adaptation of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code is a marriage made in mediocrity.

Dark Horizons

A polished affair with moments of interest, but simply far too long, too talky and just not interesting or clever enough to engage let alone entertain.

Who knows whether Dan Brown was motivated by a distaste for Catholicism or merely by money? Regardless, it seems dishonest for him to foist his debunked heresies on the gullible, unsuspecting public as if they're the God's honest truth.

Where it really goes wrong is in taking itself so darned seriously.

I'll say it: It is anti-Jesus and anti-Catholic. Unintentionally though, it is a recruiting film for Opus Dei. Where do I sign up?
