    I didn't like the movie.
    And it's not a surprise for me,because i always prefer the books,they has more details,but it's just my opinion.
    Some movies are as good as the books,like The Lord Of The Rings. But i think that in general,the books are better. Many things of the history need to change when you're producing a movie,and sometimes it is bad.

  7. I really enjoyed it... but I think a lot has to do with Ian McKellen's performance.
    I swear the sun shines out that guys ass.

    Wach it. Jesus was fake, and made love to some random white woman. It really made me want to read the bible, then look deeper into the Paganism religion. [cuz thats how the bible was made, by man, feeding off the Pagans.]

    I thought it was a waste of time. Granted, I did not read the book, but I think a movie should function on its own. A lot of it just didn't make any sense, and I felt they were throwing too much out there at once (perhaps in the effort to cram a full length novel into one film). Parts were not believable. and the parts that were enjoyable, I felt a bit nostaligic watching. Why? I couldn't pinpoint it at first, but then....Indiana Jones! Chris, what a rip. Stick to the classics, this film had nothing original to offer.

    I could not get through the novel. I did not like the way it was writen. But I liked the movie I thought it was pretty good.

    All of this fuss made by the Catholic Church over a work of fiction and what comes of it?

    A mediocre film that will no doubt never break even. Oh the irony...

    I really liked both, the movie and the book, but of course books are always better in my opinion.

    However, everything was exactly how I pictured it while reading [except some of the characters] so it was really cool to see it come to life.

    Tom Hanks really surprised me, because I did NOT expect him to play a good Langdon. And he wasn't really what I imagined while reading, but he pulled it off.

    I didn`t like the film and I haven`t read the book, but all people who had already read it told me that it was much better. I think I`ll read it sometime....

    Right on brothers and sisters..

    The book was genuisly written, the movie kinda sucks.. It doesn't even offer the suspence the book brought..

    I loved it! Was curious about what the Christians thought about it though.

    The book was really good but unfortunately the movie was just... mediocre. It could have been a lot better.

    I haven't read the book yet, but I didn't think the movie was that special. I knew already all about the Jesus/Maria Magdalena theories (there've been lots of docu's on it) so I didn't have to watch it for that. But they could've made it a better movie, though, with much more suspence. Now it was just mediocre, like taffex already said. The best thing about the movie was Paul Bettany, he was amazing as Silas!

    I spent a whole night read the book and when I watched the movie, I found it was not so good as the book. There are more details and description in the book. I like the book better!
