    There's no code to decipher. Da Vinci is a dud -- a dreary, droning, dull-witted adaptation of Dan Brown's religioso detective story. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    There are reversals of expectation, miraculous escapes from certain doom -- all the things that make thrillers thrilling. But The Da Vinci Code isn't thrilling. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Ron Howard has taken an intriguing page-turner of a story and re-shaped it into a bloated wannabe epic. show more

    Even as a visual aid, though, The Da Vinci Code is a deep-dyed disappointment. Paris by night never looked murkier. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    McKellen, Hanks and Tautou - and Alfred Molina, as a bishop with an agenda - are no slouches when it comes to emoting, but screenwriter Goldsman's rigorously faithful interpretation of Brown's flatfooted prose stylings is the filmic equivalent of putting big chewy baguettes in the actors' maws. show more

    The movie is so nervous about offending anyone that it's hardly any fun. Hanks delivers a few solemn speeches meant to deflect criticism. Meanwhile, he and Tautou barely hit it off. At least Mr. and Mrs. Smith got hot while doing their jobs. show more

    Da Vinci never rises to the level of a guilty pleasure. Too much guilt. Not enough pleasure. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Ron Howard's splendid The Da Vinci Code is the Holy Grail of summer blockbusters: a crackling, fast-moving thriller that's every bit as brainy and irresistible as Dan Brown's controversial bestseller. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    A crackling rendition of Dan Brown's novel, siphoning off unneeded fat and fancy and leaving us with a streamlined train of a picture that never stops moving. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Dan Brown's novel is utterly preposterous; Ron Howard's movie is preposterously entertaining. show more

    The Da Vinci code is a movie which attempts to show that Christ was evil, and all those around him were evil. Probably most of those who were involved including the author of the book were Jewish and the movie was financed by Jewish movie makers in an attempt to justifiy there religions rejecting of Christ and his teachings.

    This is the most stupid and outracious movie ever. It is not based on history but on some stupid writer who wrote a trash book and got paid some money, and Howard and Hanks gave this this whatever it was.
