Mini-Review: The DaVinci Code

Saw The DaVinci Code yesterday. I'm underwhelmed.

I got tired of all the puzzles. I got tired of them in National Treasure too, but at least those guys looked like they were having fun. The DaVinci Code was so dour and serious; yet not dark enough to make it interesting the other way. It should've been either a rip-roaring adventure story or a sinister thriller. Either Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade or Se7en. Mixing elements of both, it became neither. What it is, except for the very likeable performances by pretty much everyone in it, is dull. I liked the characters; I just didn't care what happened to them. I don't know how that works either. By the end of the movie, I was just trying to figure out what the point was.

I think they ran out of time at the end, and the moviemakers weren't able to finish it the way the book did -- with sense. I enjoyed Tom Hanks's performance, though.
