The Da Vinci Code (Howard, 2006)

Umm….well, I haven’t read the book (maybe I’m the only one left who hasn’t), but this film just didn’t work for me. The idea is fun but the script is pretty awful, Tom Hanks and company struggling to get anything worthwhile from the words. Howard’s made way better films (Apollo 13, Cinderella Man, hell even Willow is way better), giving no excuse for his lazy camera and slow pacing. Ironically, a big summer blockbuster that’s boring, instead of stupid.
