Did it really need the twist at the end?By Yahoo! Movie User on Wed, Jun 17, 2009 11:14 AM EDT
I've never read the book so I don't know if it was just trying to stay true to how the book ended but really all I can say is the ending sucked. However, that doesn't mean I hated the movie though. Although I personally liked the Da Vinci Code this was definitely better, and I would see it again if I got the chance. I'm a Lutheran so really the whole people trying to destroy the Vatican doesn't really even apply to my spiritual side, but I have Catholic relatives who thought I was crazy to see this movie because the only thing they can even assume this movie is, is a movie to destroy people's faith in the Catholic Church and nothing could be farther from the truth. Overall I'm going to say the same thing about this movie that the critic from the Vatican City newspaper did, "its just harmless entertainment". However as I pointed out the only problem I had with this movie was the ending. The bottom line is there is a really crappy twist at the end that it would have been a better movie on its own without (I don't give a sh** if its trying to remain true to the book or not they should have changed the ending). I don't want to give the ending completely away so I'll just say that it sets you up with what you think is going to be a very heroic and awesome ending (and that's what your going to want), but then it spits in your face. Okay, really though besides the ending I loved the setting and overall it was a good movie and I like that the author is writing another book that they are already taking about make a movie of it, just because I think Robert Langdon is a great character and I hope to see more movies with him going on more adventures like this, just as long as Tom Hanks is the only one that ever plays him.
