DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller Mystery - This is a talky mystery/thriller aimed at adult moviegoers but primarily fans of the popular book. There isn't much in the way of traditional/action movie suspense but a lot of talking, and the film runs two-and-a-half hours long. The film also has provocative ideas about religion, so those especially religiously sensitive may be upset.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The movie works; it's involving, intriguing and constantly seems on the edge of startling revelations.

USA Today Full Review
Average The most startling revelation in the movie version of The Da Vinci Code is the way it soft-pedals its provocative premise and borders on tedium. What emerges is a melodramatic, sometimes lifeless film that is missing the suspense of the popular novel.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 262 moviegoers:Neither age or gender seemed to make much difference in the opinions. They are close to great, but not quite there. Approximately half loved "The Davinci Code" and another quarter really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, there were quite a few, especially males, who only rated it average to below average.

The negative comments are mixed so they don't really help much. My suggestion is to GO SEE "THE DAVINCI CODE." Most of you will enjoy it very much. If you are sensitive to the religious aspects then you should probably skip it.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) receives an urgent late-night phone call: the elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum. Near the body, police have found a baffling cipher. While working to solve the enigmatic riddle, Langdon is stunned to discover it leads to a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci -- clues visible for all to see -- yet ingeniously disguised by the painter. Langdon joins forces with a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou), and learns the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion -- an actual secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Botticelli, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci, among others. In a breathless race through Paris, London, and beyond, Langdon and Neveu match wits with a faceless powerbroker who seems to anticipate their every move. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle in time, the Priory's ancient secret -- and an explosive historical truth -- will be lost forever.
