When a man is murdered inside the Louvre, his body is found to be surrounded by cryptic messages. The police call in American symbology expert Robert Langdon (Hanks) to decode the clues. When he is joined by Parisian cryptologist Sophie Neveu (Tautou), it quickly becomes apparent that nothing is as it first seems and a mystery begins to unravel that could shake Christianity to its very core.
Extended Cut (Blu-ray) Version Viewed.
I haven't read the book! And I love treasure hunt/clue chasing movies! So I came to Ron Howard's hugely successful film (over $600 million in worldwide profit) bereft of literary pressure and with only a modicum of genre expectation. Perhaps this is why I'm apparently only in a small percentage of film lovers who really enjoyed the film? In spite of those gargantuan financial figures.
Ultimately it's very safe film making, with a director and cast guaranteeing professionalism, but it weaves a magical mystery tour full of cryptic clues, secret organisations and cover ups. Yes, there is a good deal of corn thrown in as well, which inevitably stops the adaptation from being hyper intelligent. There's also an understanding on my part as to why many feel it's just too talky, but was the film ever going to be unfurled as an action movie blockbuster for the popcorn munching crowd, like National Treasure et al?
It is a clever conspiracy thriller full of twists and turns with a outlandish revelation at the finale. It's also very appropriately performed by the cast (serio brooding and fret), and when McKellen joins the fray after an hour of film it has a little class as well, while Zimmer's score is a majestic blending of choir, strings and synths. I maintain that the film didn't deserve the critical whacking it got, but again I say I had a blank canvas going in for my first viewing.
I wasn't sold to it because of controversy or had a saliva tinged mouth having worshipped at the altar of Dan Brown, I expected exactly what I got. A flawed but ever so intriguing adult mystery thriller, and not even Hanks' hair stopped me having a great time with the movie. 7/10
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.
However, the Amazon Prime download has GERMAN subtitles for the various French, Italian and Latin spoken parts. This meant that the plot - which heavily depends on subtitles to understand what is going on - was completely RUINED. For many films this is not a problem but the Da Vinci Code heavily relies on you understanding what the various French Police, Opus Dei characters, Italian priests, and other supporting characters , etc., all using foreign languages, are up to.
RIDICULOUS THAT THE ORIGINAL UK VERSION somehow has GERMAN subtitles.
A FAMILY EVENING RUINED TRYING TO FOLLOW THIS ... very disappointing.
