2.0 out of 5 stars Blockbuster? Yes, brilliant? Well...., 24 Jun 2007
I missed the hype so read this book without any particular expectation. Some of the pseudo history gave my eyebrows exercise but I enjoyed it as an adventure yarn. However on a closer look I realised that the book is a bog standard story of the genre with a clever wee construction that has been spectacularly successful at the cash register. The story has the usual pieces, an unlikely hero who just happens to be honest, clever and handsome, and a beautiful woman he just happens to click with. They are drawn into a violent and mysterious event and are forced, in the face of unknown and multifarious enemy, to solve the mystery themselves. Naturally the blundering authorities have got the wrong end of the stick and are trying to pin the crime on our handsome and moral hero. It all comes out in the wash in the end, villain vanquished, hero and girl triumphant. Dan Brown's trick has been to hang a series of historical "factoids" on the plot to give it body and purpose, letting the reader in on apparently revelationary secrets from the past. Well done Mr Brown, but let's not take it seriously, it's fiction guys.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please, never again, 24 Jun 2007
They lost me in the opening scenes, finding a wreck in the Arctic wastes first time. You don't watch movies like this for a reality check, but a mentally retarded gerbil wouldn't swallow that one. The rest of it was utter tripe, trotting out the usual cliched scenarios that have been around forever. That was what disappointed me, I am quite happy to suspend my credulity for the fantasy adventure genre, but I expect at least a hint of originality. I am just glad I didn't pay to watch such drivel, but it was a long flight so I did watch to the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine Navigation, 11 Mar 2006
I saw this film years ago, and it still stands up well. It's good to see a childrens film with quite a tough central premise. David's situation would be frightening for anyone, suddenly dislocated from all that is familiar and unable to explain any of it. The story holds no special surprises but is fun and has some very good lines. "Hey blimpo, too many twinkies?" Not PC but apt. You just need to know what a twinkie is. The special effects are simple but have stood the test of time. A good watch.
