Prior to watching the movie, I had the impression it'd be bad. However, it was at least decent. Perhaps my lowered expectations and reduced focus on the movie played a part in this conclusion.

Langdon exams the written words: "so dark the con of man"
With that being said, some of the plot was confusing - either because I missed it or the movie failed to explain it.

In any case, the movie would have been better if I had recently read the book, but at least I had read it once before.

Overall, I mentioned that the movie was decent but I would further clarify that I wouldn't recommend the movie to anybody who has not read the book and even then I would have reservations.

Sir Leigh Teabing (Ian McKellen)
For someone who hasn't read the book, the plot can appear confusing and/or far-fetched.

Ouch, that's gotta hurt.
"So dark the con of man."
Lol. That gap.
Lol. Scrambled or unscrambled.

Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou)
"...safe passage clause." Interesting.
Plot twist. Dang, apparently I remember nothing about the book.
Hahaha. "Surely such a travesty has never occurred."
Ian McKellen as Sir Leigh Teabing
The movie reminds me that the book excelled at tying fact with fiction
The music that played when Silas popped out caused me to jump a little

Silas (Paul Bettany)
"I couldn't accept something like that normally, but I really wanted it."
"...Have their entrails torn out and burned."
