The Da Vinci Code Movie

After much personal debate, I decided to go and watch the movie this past weekend. I found that I had some time on my hands and the opportunity. Perhaps I wasted two hours and 40 minutes of my life. I certainly wouldn’t rate this as a “great” movie. It was a good movie but nothing to be destined as a classic. I did have a couple of observations about this much anticipated and controversial movie.

First, I have to say that if you haven’t read the book, you may have trouble following the explanations throughout the movie. It is rather fact-paced in the so-called “historical” explanations. I read the book and even I had some places in the movie where I had to be alert.

Second, I think this movie is much to do about nothing. This movie should be no threat whatsoever to Christianity. If someone goes to this movie and thinks they will discover the answers to their questions then they are ignorant. There is NO way someone will find answers with this movie. For someone to go to this movie and believe that it contains facts would actually have to have MORE faith to believe in this than in Jesus Christ.

Clearly this movie is blasphemy. I thought one scene when the Sophie character – who is supposedly the last person in the bloodline of Christ – puts her foot on the water to playfully act as if she was testing to see if she could walk on the water. I thought that was an example of the absurdity of this movie. That one scene would just about sum it up.

I did see some groups picketing the movie. Personally I think it is not worth protesting. The movie is so farfetched that it isn’t even worth taking seriously. Before seeing the movie, I had told people that I thought those who were not believers or weak in the faith might be influenced by this movie. I have changed my mind about that assessment. I think the only people it will influence are the total ignorant. I’m not even nervous about answering questions about this movie anymore. It’s a non-issue as far as I am concerned. Jesus is still Lord.
