I Am From The Surete. It's A Sort Of French F.B.I.

The Da Vinci Code is a Hitchcock chase movie in which the McGuffin takes the starring role.

I think I've understood why people love it so. This New Age conspiracy stuff is addictive. What a pity none of it is true.

But take away the excitement of the ideas, and its a dull ride.

There's no chemistry between Hanks and Tatou. Instead they conduct a seminar on the run.

Almost anyone would have been better in this role than Hanks. What a pity Cary Grant was unavailable.

The energy picks up when Ian McKellen is on screen and subsides when he leaves.
