My Review:

Ok, the book was better.  But isn’t that always the case?  But the movie is pretty darn good.  It helps to have read the book because it makes the plotline easier to follow.  There’s a lot of exposition, which you can read over and over in the book to understand, and in the movie it goes by pretty fast in a few conversations.  Luckily in the movie we have the added benefit of some very cool visual effects.  The whole scene with The Last Supper painting makes a lot more sense when you see it rather than just read about it.  Tom Hanks is solid – he’s not exactly how I pictured Robert Langdon – but he is quite believable as a professor of symbology.  Audrey Tatou is darling.  In the book I felt there was more chemistry between the two characters, more of an attraction – but on the screen if was purely professional, very respectable.  Really well directed by Ron Howard – he just gets better every movie he makes.  This one was definitely a challenge and he rose to the occasion.  Some disturbing scenes with Paul Bettany as Silas torturing himself as part of his religious ritual – so be prepared if you’re a little squeamish.

Worth seeing – it’s certainly original, and will stir up some interesting conversations!
