I saw the movie yesterday. Although the only thing you see Tom Hanks doing is running from church to church, I actually enjoyed the movie. I haven't read the novel, I just checked wiki on it and seemingly the movie has stuff changed from the book... in a positive way if you ask me. The movie was enjoyable, better then DaVinci Code in various aspects... storywise, pacing, plot twists. Ewan McGregor did a wonderful job with acting. There was no chemie between Tom Hanks and his femalecounterpart, she was actually quite boring imo. However, the movie itself did entertain me.

There wasn't in TDC either. A&D was a moderately better book that its successor - so hopefully.....

Well there wasnt really supposed to be anything more than a superficial chemistry between Langdon and Sophie. but in A&D (the book) Langdon and Vittoria both have a LOT of chemistry.

even though it was much better than DvC i cant really muster up that much excitement for the movie and will probably catch it on dvd.

Caught this a few days ago and LOVED it. It may not be a devastating satire like TDVC, or even a satire at all, but as a straight-up thriller I thought it was more entertaining than most Bond movies. The history was very cool, even if it was pure fiction, and I have no idea why the villain acted the way he did, but I really don't care. The locations and sets were absolutely spectacular and 100% convincing (especially St. Peter's Square). A solid B+, and I look forward to future Hanks/Langdom films. Smile

I read neither book but I enjoyed DvC more than A&D.
I liked the "histories mysteries" aspects of DvC that were downplayed in A&D.

Compared to the book A&D the movie is very shallow, a lot of the interesting history was skimmed over and it was turned into almost a pure action movie.

For me:

Books: A&D better than DvC
Movies: DvC better than A&D

A&D was a horrible adaptation which changed endless amounts of little details for no good reason, DvC may not have been a great film but I thought it was a reasonable adaptaion remaining fairly close to the book (except for a few changes near the end).

Also the A&D film didn't have any of the historical flashback scenes that were in DvC (scenes of the Knights Templar relocating the grail relics etc.) and there were several places where I thought they would help give better context to events).
