Robert Langdon, Scholar and Nancy boy

I haven't read the book yet, but I did see the Da Vinci Code last night. Instantly forgettable. Although I won't be giving away anything in the way of spoilers, I can tell you a little something about the character of Robert Langdon portrayed by Tom Hanks: He is a scholar, who is supposed to be an expert in symbology - but he is also something else -
A nancy boy.
In the Da Vinci Code, don't expect heroics from Robert Langdon and don't expect last second chivalry from him either. Expect instead, Tom Hanks to put in a minor supporting actor role while Ian McKellen and Audrey Tautou steal the show. Watch quietly as Tom Hanks fades into the background...
Without giving anything away, Robert Langdon watches from a cowardly position everytime something bad happens. "Here's your chance to save the day, Robert!" Oh no, he's hiding under the table. There were times during the movie, I almost expected him to grab Audrey Tautou and use her as a shield - "kill her, it's not me that you want!"
Whereas Lucas and Speilberg turned a mild mannered professor of Archeology (Indiana Jones), into the crowd-pleasing, swashbuckling hero, Ron Howard turns Robert Langdon the scholar, into...well a nancy boy. (Yeah, and if you are curious, that is an original piece of work by bionicbuddha, boyah).
For some really great versatility in acting, check out David Brown's double duty as host of Rewired and handsome and heroic Ensign Daxter in Space Squadron.

I don't get what all the fuss is about. I guess I'll have to read the book. Or at least listen to it on cd.

I wasn't expecting much, hopefully it will be as good as RV. That Robin Williams has still got what it takes. I sure hope they make another Mrs. Doubtfire!

Smecker: "Symbology?...Now that Duffy has relinquished his king bonehead crown, I see we have an heir to the throne. I'm sure the word you were looking for was symbolism. What is the symbolism there?"

I saw this movie today myself. I was interested in the first hour, but lost interest after that. Aside from having a short attention span, I just thought it dragged out a bit and was a bit predictable. Of course it is predictable if you read the book but I haven't.

BTW I like the blog and thanx for stopping by mine
