As Robert Langdon puts it at the end of the movie, “It’s whatever you believe”, and while the question proposed throughout the movie is controversial, it does make for a good movie. I would liken it to Indiana Jones and National Treasure movies as they are all a search for “treasure” of one kind or another.
Symbols, codes, clues, and secret societies fill this movie with intrigue and interest. I also love all the history (however true it actually is) reported throughout the movie to prove the religious theory that the Holy Grail isn’t an object, it’s a person.
I also love the ending, where everything is revealed, and all the mysteries are (somewhat) laid to rest. Tom Hanks, while not a favorite actor, is one I do enjoy watching on the big screen, and Ian McKellen has been in some great movies too. Paul Bettany even makes an appearance. No matter what you believe, it does make a good story and gives us all a little food for thought.
