By itself, it is a good movie. But relating it to the book, I was a little pissed to the amount of descepancies. They replaced the entire library scene with a cell phone search.

Yeah, I guess. If it was an old story brought into this era, I'd understand, but I just think the book was way to good to be messed with like that.

Yea I watched it Sunday morning before going to church. I thought it was a really good movie if you only look at it from a "movie" stand point. Now if you look at it from a religious stand point, well you may think otherwise!

The religious view is interesting. But having both read the book and seen the movie I have to say that the book does an even better job of raising religious questions.

the problem with the DaVinci Code (mostly book but somewhat movie too) is that there is just enough truth woven into the story to make even the fabrications seem plausible. The whole thing is not true but many big parts of it are. Having recieved my undergraduate education at a religious college I had many chances to talk with theologians and biblical scholars and most of them think that it was likely that Jesus had a wife and maybe even children. But it is unlikely that the church has engaged in a massive coverup over the last 2000 years.

i havent read the book yet, only the sequel...which was good...

but i liked the movie as a movie, as for religious points, i think it does raise interesting questions, perhaps it will incite some people to check into religion...

The book is by far better but both are a poor excuse to trot away from the real. Come on a wife and kids? Who am I to point fingers but I can go back to the orginal Bible in Israel and point a few things that will make many peoples head spin. The Bible as we know today has been translated million times over. If you want to seek the truth, look no further than you heart and may God show you the way.

I think I agree... to me it all goes with organized religion which I'm not a fan of.... but that will start to get too personal...

Possibly the best book I ever read was "Blood Work" by Michael Connelly. For twists and turns, a totally unexpected ending, It was great.
The Movie starred Clint Eastwood, and it was average at best.Some of the plot changes were bizarre, and only "dumbed down" the plot. I had the distinct impression that the screenplay writers were convinced that an audience couldn't follow the plot if it wasn't immediately obvious in the first 3 minutes.
