    "One of the best movies adapted from a novel. The Da Vinci Code stayed faithful to its source material. While there are unavoidable differences between the book and the movie, it generally came out the way it was supposed to come out. Tom Hanks owned Robert Langdon's character. And I couldn't think of another actor to play Silas than Paul Bettany. Of course, Ian McKellen was at his usual's best. This movie is a great addition to this list."

    "Well, this isn't exactly Paul Bettany's movie but he gave a great performance on this one opposite Russel Crowe. It seems like Bettany excels in a supporting role as evidenced by this list. While he is a good actor in his own right, Bettany on the title role doesn't seem to work as well as everyone hopes for. That said, this is a good movie regardless of who's the main protagonist."

    "In my opinion, Paul Bettany is one of the most versatile actors around. He's shown that he can play different characters (Legion, Priest, Knight's Tale, even The Da Vinci Code, The Avengers movie series). To play a frustrated tennis pro in a light romantic comedy just shows his range as an actor. Great feel-good movie."

    "While this is Heath Ledger's gig, Paul Bettany certainly stole the movie's thunder. As a herald, writer Geoffrey Chaucer (Bettany) made it possible for audiences to connect with the film just by the grace of tongue. Overall, the movie is a great watch. "

    "The Priest isn't your typical post-apocalyptic dystopian film. Well, at least for its time. Vampire and humans at war. I would say that this is one of Paul Bettany's better performance in a lead role."
