A Code That Takes Longer to Watch Than Read

Speaking of The DaVinci Code and Ian McKellen, A. O. Scott of the New York Times says he's the best thing about the otherwise tepid film:
Sir Ian, rattling on about Italian paintings and medieval statues, seems to be having the time of his life, and his high spirits serve as something of a rebuke to the filmmakers, who should be having and providing a lot more fun.
Gandalf, Magneto, James Whale, and now Leigh Teabing--is it possible that McKellen is the defining actor of the last decade of popular cinema?

Well it is obvious that he is a good actor because he is gay!

I take it back, every review says that he saved the movie. Good for him.
