Gripping, enthralling and superb performances by Tom Hanks and Audrey Tatou. Well worth watching and fascinating scenery. Magazine Reviews not to be taken seriously as movie should be viewed and opinionated by individual. Should not be compared to Dan Brown's novel as people tend to make constant comparisons instead of appreciating the effort and stunning visualisation put into the movie.

If you read the book, you'll realise that this was a horrible screen adaptation! Definitely not worth buying. Everything seems very rushed and rushes from one scene to the next and doesn't have the mystery and intrigue that the book has. Much rather buy the book. This one doesn't even come close to capturing the essential elements that the book has. For once Tom Hanks doesn't nail the character and there is no chemistry between the two lead characters. You end up feeling that they could not possibly like each other. Damn you Hollywood for destroying this classic story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reviewers in film magazines have been critical of this film. The people involved in making this film should have known that the vast majority of viewers would have read the book. By following the storyline of the book (not a bad thing in itself) they have removed all suspense from watching. Watching this film the first time is like watching an average film the second time. Unfortunately they don't supply anything else to keep our attention. In fact, they bored us with endless dialog from start to finish. Some of the settings in which the story take place could have provided fascinating and beautiful sceneries. Instead we get a few amateurish CGI flashbacks and talking ... and talking ... and talking ... The reviewers are right. This is more of a cash-in on the success of the book than a good film.
An opportunity wasted. Let's hope the ubiquitous remake in a few year's time is better than this.

Whether one has read the book or not, this movie is, in my honest opinion, not half as bad as most critics make it out to be.
Most critics would have dragged this movie through the mud for the sole reason of having read the book and finding the movie lacking. Considering, however, the limited time a movie has to not only develop characters and plot (a few minutes merely, whereas a book has pages over pages), Tom Hanks, Audrey Toutou and their colleagues have succeeded in not only creating believable and true characters in the short time they were given, but also ones true to the book.
It was mentioned by the above reviewer that too much time was spent talking. True, there is a lot of time spent talking, but without it, the movie loses vital depth. Only the most essential and intricate details necessary for the plot are told in conversation, many on the other hand are communicated to the viewer through other, clever means. To me it would seem the movie makes very good use of the time it was given.
Suspense, the book having been read or not, is not lacking and the 'action' sequences are neither gory or slasher-movie-like, nor too boring - a good balance has been achieved.

A good movie overall, yet nothing too fancy either.
