I've read the book, and the movie's not so bad. Obviously there are
many things I'd do different, but in the end it's 2,5 hours of good
entertainment, and isn't that what the ratings are all about?
Personally I think Tom Hanks wasn't passionate enough for Robert
Langdon. That's why it's not a 9 for me.
A lot of people are too harsh on this one. Mostly because they know the
book and have very high expectations. I have to see my first
book-to-film where the film is better.
Also, you're not going to hell for watching this movie or reading the
book. It's based on a novel, which is based on a few loose theories,
but in the end all it wants to do is to entertain. And that is exactly
what both the book and the movie did for me.
