The Da Vinci Code

The Da Vinci Code (2006)

Based on Dan Brown's best-seller of the same name, Ron Howard's gripping film stars Tom Hanks as Harvard professor Robert Langdon and Audrey Tatou as cryptographer Sophie Neve, who must untangle a web of deceit when the curator of the Louvre, a member of a secret society and a relative of Neve's, is found murdered in the famed museum's hallowed halls. To crack the case and arrive at the truth, they must look to the works of Leonardo da Vinci.
My Two Cents: Reins in its wonderful cast and despite a "means well" approach, it comes across as dull more often than not.

Alternate My Two Cents: Ron Howard seems as if he may be hedging bets with the controversial subject matter.

Bonus Alternate Aaron Sorkin-esque My Two Cents: Let Hanks be Hanks!

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
IMDB Rank: 7/10
