Da Vinci For Dummies? Da Vinci for those who haven’t read the book or read it and haven’t understood it?
Whichever way you look at it, the movie was boring. I had a hard time keeping awake and if the seats were more comfortable, I might have just dozed off.
The story plodded along and while the book was fast-paced, Ron Howard seemed to have sucked the pace out of the movie. Then, there were the lengthy explanations, and the acting. Tom Hanks (Robert Langdon) looked like he mailed this performance in and collected his cheque. Is this the guy that has won two Academy Awards? Audrey Tautou (Sophie Neveu) is pretty, her acting sure isn’t.
If you want to see an entertaining movie, go watch X-Men: The Last Stand. If you want to know about the Da Vinci Code, read the book.
At least, the pace will keep you awake.
