    I read the book and liked it. Saw the movie and its just about OK. The main problem in the movie is that everything happens so fast the puzzles and codes appear to be too easy! I didn't like the technique of using visual tools for all the explanations. The book explains things better.

    Never read the book, and thought the movie kinda lame and too long. IMO, Ian McKellen was the only good thing in the whole movie...

    Anyway, had to pass a bunch of bible thumping protestors outside the movie theater as well...

    Never read the book. Saw the movie yesterday and I kinda got lost. Things happen too fast and there a lot of twists and turns. It's like you gotta be 100% focused on the movie to understand what's going on. Unfortunately for me, I was just 90% focused. I had to read and reply to important emails on my Treo during the movie.

    Wife and I saw the movie last Saturday and we were flown away by the content. We are buying the DVD once it comes out because there were things that got me puzzled and confused at times. It was like the Matrix Reloaded. I think that is probably why they made it like that, so that you buy the DVD.

    Well, as I suspected, several folks are comparing it to the clue based mystery/action flick National Treasure. Taht movie was easier to foloow, and you can get lost in The Da Vinci Code fi you haven't read the book. You have to shortcut a lot of the book in 2 1/2 hours, but overall, it was pretty true to the book given the time constraints. Won't win any Academy Award nods, but entertaining fiction.

    I got a pen stylus that says it will. Maybe not by you, but you know it will. I mean for goodness sake it has got Tom Hanks, and it was directed by Ron Howard.

    I don't think so. The acting was rather wooden, and the topic wasn't "forced" on the viewer enough to engage the Hollywood elite as being anti-christian. I know that sounds cynical, but look at all the buzz about Brokeback Mountain.

    I couldn't decide between watching the Davinci Code or Poseiden. I found the Davinci movie a little long and drawn out and confusing, especially towards the end. Maybe I should have read the book first! At the ending scene, where the crowd comes out to tell (the person) we are here to protect you, I thought to myself, where were you guys earlier when all the mayhem was happening? No protection happening then! Hopefully, I didn't spoil any plots here.

    I won't claim to know Hollywood, but I do know that it works a bit on favoritism. And yes I agree w/ your assesment of the movie's acting and topic.
