This is one such case. The movie originally made for television is well made and does provide entertainment. Its SMOTJ twist is well done and leaves the viewer waiting with anticipation of the next return to history moment. The movie goes back in time if you will, with what the members of the order were doing, where, in relation to what Tess is currently following, delving into - nicely done.
A good vs. evil sub-plot is also present and leads the viewer to a good ending - as it should be. Worth a watch and purchase.
I think what impressed me most about this one was my surprise at finding, in the credits, that it was made for TV. Back when those first started, when I was teaching little Noah how to walk, they were notoriously dull and cheaply made, but this one's definitely got major-studio quality in it. It's a little "lighter" than Da Vinci Code, but definitely much more thought-provoking than the Indy adventures. By all means give it a try.
Then our heroine Tess Chaykin (Mira Sorvino) grabs a Crozier and a police horse and charges off to joust with one of them. This is whilst the NYPD stand around doing nothing - yeah right. Then the FBI gets involved in the shape of Sean Daley (Scott Foley). What develops is a plot that is so implausibly bad that it will make your eyes water. This is all about the Knights Templar and their hidden treasure which has been oft speculated about. We have a tale of three Templar's back in 1291 escaping from Jerusalem via a river, Jerusalem is land locked and has no river. They then watch it burn from the sea. Yep they had pretty good vision in those days as its is some 30 odd miles from the coast.
Then they get shipwrecked but manage to make it to shore in full chain mail where they bury something that will undermine the entirety of the scriptures and therefore Christianity. Then back to modern day and the hapless Ms Sorvino who gets emotionally attached to the FBI bloke and heads off to Bodrum in Turkey which despite claims from the Turkish Tourist Board that is lush, green and a modern city, turns out to be a desert where people can not even speak Turkish. They uncover more plot and find out that the Vatican is involved and a rogue archaeologist puts in another appearance to add some excessive `ham' to the whole proceedings.Read more ›
And Tess doesn't get tasered in the movie??? What's up with that? There are several more differences between the book and movie. You can read the book and watch the movie to see the rest.
Regardless, as I said before, if you haven't read the book you will probably enjoy the movie. If you have read the book you may want to see this movie anyway and decide for yourself if the book or the movie is better.
