The most stupid moment in this film?
The first five minutes, when I'm supposed to believe that an old man,
after being shot in the stomach, strips himself naked, draws a circle
on the floor and a star on his chest in his own blood, writes a message
in code (also in his own blood) that leads to a painting with another
coded message that leads to another painting with yet another coded
message, several of which are written in invisible ink (he just
happened to have a bottle on him when he was shot?). Then he lays down
in the circle and dies in the pose of the Vitruvian Man. I'm surprised
he didn't also pause to make a sandwich and finish that novel he'd been
Monty Python could have done a better job with this movie..

Possibly one of the worst scripts ever scripted!
Firstly, this is only the second review I've ever posted on IMDb so am
unsure as to what constitutes a spoiler to you guys so have checked the
box just to cover myself. To be honest though, the whole film is a
spoiler so just don't bother.
I can't begin to write here how appalled I was that such a hyped and
eagerly anticipated (not by me I must hasten to add) film could be so
I wasn't one of the 'trillions' that read Dan Brown's book, and I think
the film makers just assumed that everyone in the audience had read the
book, and more to the point, loved the book; "so hey, we don't have to
worry too much, whatever we do we're gonna make shed loads, just get it
done!". I deteste these films which come out of Hollywood, which
seemingly are made purely for profit and let all the important
attributes needed to make a true, decent film, fall to the way-side.
It literally took about 15 minutes for me to decide that this film was
a complete piece of crap. The dialogue used to move the plot along was
ridiculous. In those first 15 minutes Tom Hanks (whom to my mind has
only ever made a handful of decent movies at best) is giving a lecture
to students. Then he gets taken aside to be told his friend was
murdered, can he please come have a look. OK, strange but lets go with
it. Then a french policeman tells him he must help immediately and it
wouldn't be wise not to. Then a girl appears from nowhere and tells him
he must come with her as the policeman is trying to kill him. Oh but
wait, we can't go out the front door or anything, we have to go this
way. Oh and by the way can you read codes by any chance? Oh you can?
Wonderful! Then please de-code this before we go, it'll help
And so the plot goes on and on and on like this, no explanation, no
reasoning just blind commands that he follows again and again from
anybody that cares to give him one. At no point in this opening 15
minutes does Tom Hanks question what people are telling him, he just
believes them, does what he is told and moves onto the next stage. It
was like watching a computer game, with the main character being told
do this, do that, don't go here and quick come this way, by supporting
characters just to progress onto the next level. It was mind-numbingly
boring. Does no-one else agree even slightly with this?
The strange thing is I briefly started to read the opening chapter or
two of the book whilst I was away last month with my girlfriend, and my
first impressions were that it read like a movie script so something
doesn't quite add up.........
