Ralph's Review of The Da Vinci Code
The Da Vinci Code(2006)
Well, it comes as no real surprise to me that this film sucks. But what did surprise me was the sheer volume the sucking achieved.
I can't be the only one who found his 'expertise" to be hilarious.
You see these four pictures? Well, then you've pretty much seen the [url="http://www.rottentomatoes.com/vine/showthread.php?t=484176#"]movie[/url]. It's frighteningly dull and oddly predictable. I almost walked out. Somehow, they managed to make a mediocre book and turn it into a piece of crap film! Is anyone learning anything here?
Hanks looks confused throughout the film. This also highlights how weak Langdon's character is in the books as well. Brown is a crappy writer. By the time you get to the end of the film, you start hoping these secret groups will commit mass suicide to make the film end quicker. The characters are weird sketches almost devoid of physical presence. And while there is a back story to the "Sophie" character, it is such an absurd and bullshi t premise that you want to vomit with the level of stupidity.
I will recommend this film to no man (or woman). I recommend avoiding renting it as well.
