A murder inside the Louvre and clues in Da Vinci paintings lead to the discovery of a religious mystery protected by a secret society for two thousand years -- which could shake the foundations of Christianity.

Awards: None

Because it was not certain that the movie would be a hit and that other adaptations of Dan Brown's novels would follow, this film was made as a "stand-alone" movie, rather than the beginning of a series. All references to the fact that Robert Langdon had already solved another murder riddle (in the novel "Angels and Demons", which precedes "The Da Vinci Code") were therefore purposefully left out of the script. When the movie was a huge financial success, production of Angels & Demons was started shortly after the release (but rewritten as a follow-up, not a prequel). 


4 stars out of 5 stars
