A bit one sided

"Overall this is an interesting DVD. The main problem I had with this DVD was that after a while you start to notice that it is quite a bit one sided. It is ALL quite against Dan Brown's book. You start to feel like behind the scenes of this DVD it is put together by very conservative Christians. Although I personally do not believe the notion that Jesus was married to Mary or for that matter I do not take Dan Brown's book too seriously as a true source of historical/religious wisdom--at all, I still found this DVD to be quite a bit one sided and conservative. No one on this program even goes into the interesting topic of at least questioning the standard Christian dogmas that have been purported over the centuries. No one on this program even brings up the fascinating notion of exploring a Jesus beyond the conservative views----at least to explore the idea. NO, this program mainly pushes how perfect the bible is and how if it's not in the scriptures it's not reliable.
Those people that clearly are against the Da Vinci code book will enjoy this program most. Those that are in the grey areas or conspiracy theory types will not like this DVD much.
I think it's fair to say that there are a lot of people like myself who do not really believe in the theories of Da Vinci Code yet find it fascinating because it at least makes one go beyond just being spoon feed religion. I was hoping this DVD would have a bit of that flavor of a well rounded discussion but it did not. All the experts they had on their panel were clearly against all the ideas in Da Vinci code and that was pretty much the tone of the whole DVD.
You make up your mind for yourself if that is a balanced discussion."
Informative and reputable resources to dissect the Da vinci

"The reputable scholar in archeology, theology and art history explain the differences between the fact and fiction in Da Vinci Code. I really like the interesting bonus features including the life of Lenardo Da vinci and the tour at the rosslyn chapel. The bonus interviews with the historian and theologian gave the in-depth discussion about the controversial topic regarding the Jesus's Marriage with Mary Magdalene and the structure of the bible in early Christianity History. If you are fascinated by the Da Vinci Code, why don't you also consider watch this DVD from different perspectives."

"It is a bit strange to watch all this fight against Dan Brown's book. What is for? Millions people who like the Da Vinci Code book usually do not take it as a source of historical facts. The value of this book is not in the particular facts but in general (and serious) idea about danger of destroying male-female balance in society. Indeed, a human being consists of two parts. Males and females have very different views on this World so that these views should be well balanced. If one of the parts becomes heavily predominating, it may be truly dangerous for survival of our species. Dan Brown just takes our attention to the problem. He shows that the imbalance has a long history and it might be a major source of many current problems in human society as well as the source of overall instability on the Earth. And the latter is not fiction.

"This documentary shows why The Da Vinci Code is a work of fiction. It does not take away from the entertainment value of The Da Vince Code. It simply sheds light on the various lines of reasoning used to come to the conclusions reached in The Da Vince Code. Watching this DVD will educate the viewer in the history of the spread of early Christianity."
