Hanks told the Evening Standard that those involved with the film "always knew there would be a segment of society that would not want this movie to be shown. But the story we tell is loaded with all sorts of hooey and fun kind of scavenger-hunt-type nonsense."  He said it is a mistake "to take any sort of movie at face value, particularly a huge-budget motion picture like this."  He also stated at the Cannes Film Festival that he and his wife saw no contradiction between their faith and the film, as "My heritage, and that of my wife, suggests that our sins have been taken away, not our brains."

I make no bones about being a non-believer. So the "controversy" that continues to greet 'The Da Vinci Code' means nothing to me. All I cared about going into the film was whether it would work as a thriller. And more often than not, it does, even if I find its big revelations etc., a bunch of malarkey. Still, I can't deny that I was entertained. This Blu-ray is without a doubt a good one, with strong video and audio and plenty of extras, both new and exclusive. 'The Da Vinci Code' is well worth checking out on Blu-ray for fans of the film. And if you're merely curious, definitely give it a rent.
