Da Vinci a dud

Reviews are coming in, and it looks like the movie is about as good as the book, which means it stinks.

Of course, since the churches went crazy over the whole thing instead of letting Da Vinci stand or fall on its own merit, it will still gross $100 million.

Have we learned anything yet?

you're dead right. the "controversy" is only going to fuel ticket sales. don't these folks learn from experience?

I caught the advance screening on Tuesday night, and I was completely UNDERwhelmed.

Aside from the first 15 minutes or so, it's talky, overlong and plain dull.

Tom Hanks looks bored and tired. And way too much of the "thriller" is given over to having people talk about the "facts" related to the conspiracy, rather than thrilling us with the pursuit of the answers.

Several critics in the audience chuckled during those moments when the big "secrets" are revealed.

I posted a review of the movie on my blog.
