SO DARK THE CON OF MAN

THE DA VINCI CODE (2006)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

Good thing: it was as thrilling as I thought it to be. Although I must say I got quite many shocks when Silas appeared, cos he kept ‘BUMP’ appear from nowhere and THUD’ hit someone or kill that someone. Sad to say, his nice figure is full of scars.

Anyway, the book is much, much, much better. Maybe the sense of thrill and anticipation is all gone when the actors reveal the clues a little too quick without much thinking. But of course, there’s lots of sight-seeing and the revelation at the ending. A little bit different from the book, the last part, or did I remember it wrongly? The actors gave solid acting, especially Ian McKellen (Leigh Teabing) and Alfred Molina (Bishop Aringarosa).

Oddly, those people who haven’t read the book all gave it 4 stars and above..
