DVD Debut gives Dan Brown a puff of white smoke over at VH1.com.
The pope is dead, his four eligible successors have been kidnapped, and there’s a ticking bomb somewhere in the Vatican. Who you gonna call? Tom Hanks, of course. After making peace with the papacy, ancient manuscripts are dug up and soon he’s racing all over Rome to stop the ancient city from becoming a crater. There’s a nice surprise for audiences, too. This Da Vinci Code prequel-gone-sequel is devilishly good fun, with Ron Howard providing Grand Guignol flourishes worthy of fright-meister Dario Argento.
