movie: the da vinci code

The Da Vinci Code

So much ink has been expended on the teaching content of the book, and the movie; it’s pretty clear that the sorts of things that the movie says about Jesus, and about the church is largely made up. The trouble is that there is no difference in the presentation of fact and fiction.

As a movie, it has moments of good action, but there are a bunch of areas which are too slow moving; Tom Hanks is a bit too wooden, Ian McKellen is excellent; the scenes with the Albino monk are pretty confronting – unnecessarily so.

It’s not a particularly bad movie, but I don’t know that it’s worth a full-price ticket. I don’t think it would convince anyone either for or against Christianity.
