The murder of a renowned French curator sent the entire French state into panic, and the only man who can help investigate the crime is none other than Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks). Langdon is a Harvard symbologist, is dedicated to revealing the mysteries of ancient codes. Who would have guessed that Leonardo Da Vinci's legendary painting of Mona Lisa hides the secrets to Christianity that has never been revealed to the world before? With the help of stunning Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou), estranged granddaughter of the murdered curator, Langdon helps to find the murderer and make the French policemen's lives easier, by putting his life on the line....

In spite of all the hype that the movie has played up, I enjoyed it. It was action packed and the cast's performances were solid. This is an okay movie, n worth watching, despite abit bored thruout the story... For the curious at heart, go ahead and satisfy your curiosity. And for those who feel they won't be able to stomach the storyline, all I can say is, if it isn't your cup of tea, don't drink it!
