The Da Vinci Code: Coded for the sleeping masses
Coded for the sleeping masses
After going through a lengthy enumeration of what TDVC is all about, I still don't get it, as much as I have to rave about that heartthrob wizard from Harry Potter. On the other hand, I'm not a huge fan of big, religiously inspired adventures, and I think Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail remains by far the weakest outing in the franchise.
But that's bias, and for those who are enamored with the book at hand, I sincerely apologize. While I've never read TDVC, this reviewer may have some quibbles, but he also allows me to view his film performance with a cleaner slate. Building on those pillars, I still don't see the wide appeal, as Ron Howard's long-running film, while far from a catastrophe of Biblical proportions, feels so far from big screen dominance.
Echoing mysticism and behind-the-scenes whispers about Christ's legacy on this earth, The Da Vinci Code puts itself in a precarious position by basing most of its premise on assumptions that any would-be cynic will easily refute. On top of that, unlike the previously discussed Indiana Jones and its various counterparts, the story lacks a fantastic punch to make up for the aforementioned shortcoming. TDVC's biggest challenge is selling a compelling theory in a direct style more suited to a documentary, and unfortunately, that's a hurdle the pseudo-play can't quite overcome.
In fact, after two hours and quite a bit of variety, Da Vinci noticeably sinks into the knickknacks department, allowing viewers to fall asleep faster than on the edge of their seats. And while the almost complete lack of cheesy visual distractions is commendable, it contributes to the overall state of sluggishness plaguing this project.
Perhaps, then, its primary audience should be the legion of converted fans who have read and embraced the book. You certainly have a lot to enjoy here, even if you leave disappointed. At least the comparison between the two formats itself can be fun for connoisseurs.
As an independent film, we have little to recommend here. The story is decent enough, but again, minus the appropriate overwhelming blows, it's definitely a boring disappointment. Also in terms of acting, there is hardly a highlight. Tom Hanks stars as Robert Langdon, an American explorer and novelist specializing in ancient cultures and symbolism. Langdon's international reputation marks him as a wanted man by French officials in a murder investigation at the Louvre. The police chief, played by Jean Reno, introduces an ambiguous character with an agenda we shouldn't see early on, but due to a lackluster performance by Reno we don't really care for it anyway. The same goes for Hanks, who is usually a solid actor. Here he only flies with instruments, almost without enthusiasm.
Other cast members on TDVC include young lead Audrey Tatuou, whom we love in Amelie and Happenstance, as Langdon's right-hand woman and career object of desire, Sophie. Other than being handsome in a Lolita fashion, Tautou adds little to the plot of this film. There is also the Conspiracy Contingent, led by the stalwart Ian McKellen. This guy has aged quite a bit, to the point where he's indistinguishable from the eccentric man of occultist Sir Leigh Teabing and the world-ruling mutant Magneto. Identical tantrums in both cases.
Probably the only ones truly true to his work are Paul Bettany as the assassin Silas (he was previously seen alongside Russell Crowe in Master and Commander) and Spiderman 2 Infamy's former Dr. Octopus, Alfred Molina. He leads a church agent coordinating plans to silence the biggest secret conspiracy of all time and, along with Bettany, provides the film with its only powerful ingredient. Sometimes Silas's violence repels enough to cause a wince or two, thank goodness.
Without revealing the plot to the few remaining uninitiated out there, the struggle to locate the living legacy of Jesus Christ in the modern world brings multiple warring factions, including science, the law, the clergy, and an underground secret society. This may sound like a recipe for explosive mischief, but it actually has no such effect. For all the anger and excitement over TDVC's alleged profanity, it actually poses little threat to anyone's feelings or belief systems, not just because of free speech, but because it's so shallow and uninspired.
The best we can say about Da Vinci as a work of cinema is that it moves at a steady pace and avoids cheap tricks. You sit there, always on the verge of falling asleep, but without pain.
Otherwise, there's hardly a facet worth getting excited about. It doesn't touch, move, or jiggle, it doesn't have any groundbreaking filmmaking techniques, and it delivers barely perceptible amounts of good acting.
Is agony the exact opposite of pleasure? Maybe not. Take a look at The Da Vinci Code, proof that there's at least 150 minutes in between.
