All false truths and historical inaccuracies aside, The DaVinci Code is a well-made and fast-paced thriller that will certainly be remembered (if not only for the controversy it caused). Concerning the controversial nature of the plot, I think it's important to keep in mind what Roger Ebert said: "Yes, the plot is absurd, but then most movie plots are absurd. That's what we pay to see." If you take it as pure entertainment, the film is an enjoyable and exciting (not to mention arguably classic) adventure.
It doesn't just manage to deliver a little bit of everything but it does it with style and integrity. Iron Man is a film everyone can enjoy because it cares enough to deliver excellence on every front. The mega talented cast fit each main character perfectly and the story itself is told in a masterful, crisp manner. The dialogue is witty and what humor there is works its way seamlessly in to the natural order of the story. A couple of comic book style slugfests are included but inserted only as a vehicle for the story. Things aren't blown up just for the sake of seeing them go boom. What makes Iron Man a true rarity is that it's a fine film for kids but it's even greater if you're an intelligent adult. How many movies can you say that about? This is truly movie making of the most entertaining order and it easily deserves all the praise it has generated both from fans and critics alike.
