The Da Vinci Code

1

Date: 2006

Director: Ron Howard

Starring: Tom Hanks, Jean Reno, Audrey Tatou, Ian McKellan

Ron Howard’s film is regrettably ponderous, wooden, and so bereft of wit that its Grail-happy dalliance — heretical or orthodox — has the texture of soggy popcorn. Tom Hanks (Dr. Robert Langdon) is miscast, his sparkle killed by awful dialogue; Audrey Tautou (Sophie Nevau) is all but apologetic for being; only scurillous Ian McKellan (Teabing) gives the proceedings some fizz. Ultimately, though, the fizz fizzles and you’re left with a somnambulist’s version of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Daughter of Christ, you say. Sorry, I gave at the office.
