Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Completing the trail of cryptic clues simply becomes an end in and of itself -- think Sudoku: The Movie -- with little in the way of whimsy, star chemistry or excitement to enliven the dour plod."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"If only it were allowed to be merely a cheesy romp, an Indy Jones movie with more sophisticated stereotypes and far less humor. But apparently this is no mere pop novel-turned-high-hat megaplex product."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"The exposition is actually the best and most valuable part of the film"
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
"So intent on being faithful, The DaVinci Code forgets to be entertaining."
‑ Brandon Fibbs,
"A great film to look at and Salvatore Totino's cinematography is pitch-perfect."
‑ Jamie Gillies, Apollo Guide
"Even as a visual aid, The Da Vinci Code is a deep-dyed disappointment. Paris by night never looked murkier."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"What's wrong with The Da Vinci Code can be summed up in one word: everything!"
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Too meekly middlebrow to really affront"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Any movie with a skulking albino assassin begs for campy, self-aware treatment, but Howard and scripter Akiva Goldsman serve it all up straight-faced."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"A mystery thriller that entertains."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"... a first-rate thriller ..."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"I won't go so far as to recommend it, and I can't imagine ever wanting to see it again."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"What seems credible on page is ludicrous in action."
‑ Amy Nicholson, I.E. Weekly
"Who knows whether Dan Brown was motivated by a distaste for Catholicism or merely by money? Regardless, it seems dishonest for him to foist his debunked heresies on the gullible, unsuspecting public as if they're the God's honest truth."
‑ Kam Williams,
"Whatever your beliefs, "The Da Vinci Code" is a film to be seen and, more importantly, discussed."
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
