light various wild claims about Jesus Christ that
have offended many people of faith. Is it possible
that the Bible was a work of fiction ? Did Jesus
escape death on the cross and become a father ?
But can these allegations possibly be true ? In
Exposing the DaVinci Code world-renowned religious
scholars refute these unlikely claims and
demonstrate how research proves that the novel is
filled with distorted interpretations of history.
Supported by archaeological evidence these
Biblical academics expose how The DaVinci Code got
it so very wrong.

The Da Vinci Code [DVD] [2006]

The Da Vinci Code [DVD] [2006]

Critics and controversy aside, The Da Vinci Code is a verifiable blockbuster. Combine the ... more

film's huge worldwide box-office take with over
100 million copies of Dan Brown's book sold, and
The Da Vinci Code has clearly made the leap from
pop-culture hit to a certifiable franchise (games
and action figures are sure to follow). The leap
for any story making the move from book to big
screen, however, is always more perilous. In the
case of The Da Vinci Code, the story is concocted
of such a preposterous formula of elements that
you wouldn't envy Akiva Goldsman, the screenwriter
who was handed a potentially unfilmable book and
asked to make a filmable script out of it.
Goldsman's solution was to have the screenplay
follow the book as closely as possible, with a few
needed changes, including a better ending. The
result is a film that actually makes slightly
better entertainment than the book. So if you're
like most of the world, by now you've read the
book and know that it starts out as a murder
mystery. While lecturing in Paris, noted Harvard
Professor of Symbology Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks)
is summoned to the Louvre by French police help
decipher a bizarre series of clues left at the
scene of the murder of the chief curator, Jacques
Sauniere. Enter Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou),
gifted cryptologist and Sauniere's granddaughter.
Neveu and Langdon are forced to team up to solve
the mystery, and from there the story is propelled
across Europe as it balloons into a modern-day
mini-quest for the Holy Grail, complete with
alternative theories about the life of Christ,
ancient secret societies headed by historical
figures like Leonardo Da Vinci, secret codes,
conniving bishops, daring escapes, car chases,
and, of course, a murderous albino monk controlled
by a secret master who calls himself "The
Teacher." Taken solely as a mystery thriller, the
movie almost works--despite some gaping
holes--mostly just because it keeps moving forward
at the breakneck pace set in the book. Brown's
greatest trick might have been to have the entire
story take place in a day so that the action is
forced to keep going, despite some necessary
pauses for exposition. Hanks and Tautou are just
fine together but not exactly a memorable screen
pair; meanwhile, Sir Ian McKellen's
scenery-chewing as pivotal character Sir Leigh
Teabing is just what the film needs to keep it
from taking itself too seriously. In the end, this
hit movie is just like a good roller-coaster ride:
try not to think too much about it--just sit back
and enjoy the trip. --Daniel Vancini, Amazon.com
