Not that bad.
11 June 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

It had actually took me a long time to 'dig out' from my own memory that this is the first-ever documentary I had watched in regarding to The Da Vinci Code. The very first one which introduces me to the phenomenon which has been taking the world by storm when this documentary was on air here last year.

Because to actually admit, prior to this documentary where I watched it by chance on television here, I had actually never even heard of the book. Not yet. But I had heard how much buzz it has caused, and the controversy as well. So, I had never regretted watching this.

It was very interesting how the host himself went in search of the Holy Grail because practically about everything it is trying to find out about on the documentary is almost new to me then (as being a non-Christian myself). At that time I was just pretty amused in the way he presented the show. Or maybe I was just this clueless person who is oblivious to the phenomenon till all that buzz came in.

Now a year on, I had already read the book, watched the movie adaptation and liked it, even did some personal research on my own mainly online. So I guess I can say this documentary where I watched it last year is pretty not that bad in the way it has presented to those who are watching it.
