->You know a lot of people hated ''TheDaVinciCode'' but I liked it well enough. Its by no means a great movie, but its not ass either. Its a standard follow the puzzle adventure movie which works well enough. You have a theory of the Catholic Church which is crackpot to say the least in real life but in terms of a fictional movie world works to add a sense of drama... Sadly this is the weaker of the two efforts by ''[Ron]'' Howard. The story is about a particle of antimatter which is stolen and if released from its protective case [[HiroshimaAsAUnitOfMeasure it will be like 9/11 times a million]]. Wait, before I go any further: '''antimatter!?''' Since when did Dan Brown write for ''StarTrek''?

->''"The ''Die Hard'' movies keep getting bigger in scope. First one: stuck in a building. Second one: stuck in an airport. Third one: stuck in New York City. Fourth one: stuck....in ''the entire eastern half of the United States''. And then the fifth one now is... ''Russia''? All of Russia, somewhere in Russia? And Russia is quite bigger than the U.S., geographically speaking. So the next one is: [=John McClane=] [[FauxHorrific stuck on Earth]]."''

->''"Kersey travels from town to town, and inevitably is forced or talked into taking up arms against the scum. As is usually the case, the first film is both stronger and subtler than those that follow. In the original, Kersey is physically and emotional vulnerable. After his first encounter with a mugger, he runs to his bathroom and throws up... he arms himself with a simple revolver, while in the later films he leaned on [[{{BFG}} increasingly outrageous ordnance]] (as we shall see)."''

->''"The original movie was about some punk kids who were bullying Daniel with what lame karate they learn in a strip mall dojo. Time is short, but Miyagi is able to teach Daniel just enough to beat his competition. And the level of competition is that you would expect in a junior league karate tournament. There was a grounding in reality. But here they figure the original was not [[ViewersAreGoldfish fast enough]], [[BloodierAndGorier bloody enough]], or [[ArtisticLicenseMartialArts choreographed enough]] for modern audiences... The fights have also been turned from realistic choreography to almost a live action anime. The kids are defying physics with {{wire fu}}. They are doing [[Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr hurricanranas]] and [[DivingKick pele kicks]] and moves rejected from ''[[CrouchingTigerHiddenDragon Crouching Tiger]]'' cause they were considered too unbelievable. Cripes people! These are 12 year olds, they should not be mimicking the final fight [[TheMatrix between Neo and Agent Smith.]]"''
