Da Vinci Code sucked, the pace was way too slow and never captured the excitement of the book but this one was able to recapture at least some of it. It felt like it was more for people who have read the book, leaving out the history and conversation for the most part and staying on top of the suspense. I think it's the best Ron Howard could do with it and I hope he sticks to letting the book handle the little details in the next couple of movies as well.
I saw this on the way over, and wasn't excited about it.
It was obvious that ewan mcgregor's creepy character was some sort of baddie from the start, and it was obvious that someone "in charge" was screwing around tom hanks' character. story-wise = zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
