{mosimage}What a boring movie. Talk about long winded. Hey, Ron Howard, you could have easily shaved off 45 minutes and it might have been a half decent movie.

As it was, the movie moved with a fast pace and then dead smack in the middle, it just stopped. We were then subjected to a couple of anti-climaxes and then it was over.

Of course, this didn't stop people from seeing what all the fuss was about. The Da Vinci Code has "opened with the second largest worldwide gross in history -- an estimated $224 million, $77 million of which came from the U.S. market. The total was exceeded only by last year's Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith, which premiered with $254 million." And Episode III eats the Code for lunch, dinner and breakfast.

The best things about this movie were Sir Ian McKellen's acting (of course) and the new glass Louvre.
