The Da Vinci Code

(USA, 2006, 145 minutes)

An American historian and a French cryptologist try to discover who murdered her grandfather and why, and find out the murder is connected to a centuries-old quest for the Holy Grail. Old-fashioned, disposable potboiler from a wildly successful novel; dull, overlong and in need of a stronger directing hand, enlivened only by a couple of strong performances.

Starring Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Ian McKellen, Alfred Molina, Jürgen Prochnow; with Paul Bettany; and Jean Reno.
