Of course, the premise is ridiculous. However, the combination of a likable cast, envelope-pushing action scenes, and Ed Harris as a stony-faced villain make the movie adrenaline-fueled, fun entertainment.

More mindless entertainment that glosses over so much (is it really that easy to kidnap the president, break into Buckingham Palace, get into the oval office and solve mysteries with such precision and effortlessness?) How is it that the entrances to hidden treasures are so well hidden, but the exits are easy to spot? Final Grade: C+

"National Treasure 2: Book Of Secrets" by Yojimbo

When a missing page of Wilkes-Booth's diary turns up and implicates Ben Gates' great grandfather in the assassination of President Lincoln, yet another set of clues contained in historical relics sets him on the trail of a mythical golden city. The first National Treasure film was a servicable enough family orientated adventure and this sloppy, lazy sequel is pretty much just a drearily mechanical carbon copy. Once again the breathlessly episodic script leads Cage from one clue to another which makes it feel like watching someone else playing a Tomb Raider game and there are ridiculously contrived excuses to crash London taxis, break into Buckingham Palace and kidnap the president. Quite why an eminent historian couldn't just ASK to see these antiques is the biggest mystery in the film an...

Fast-Paced, Fluffy, Fun!

I couldn't remember what happened in the first film but that did not hinder me from liking this film quite a bit. I liked that even though it did not make much sense at times, it acted as though it did so it was convincing and fun at the same time. This is a fast-paced film, which is a good thing, because it managed to hide its inconsistencies. The dialogue is not as smart as it pretends to be but it's okay because there are more than a handful of adrenaline-fueled scenes to make up for it. I must give kudos to Justin Bartha for providing the comic relief. Without him, this film would've been reduced to a step-by-step, laugh-out-loud-less, adventure ride. My main problem with it that I couldn't forgive is the sympathetic villain. It would've been better if they went all-out and introduced...

Interesting enough the first time

There are a few good points about this movie, like the fact that all main characters are back for the sequel. Plus having Helen Mirren and Ed Harris on board added spice to the already ensemble cast. What I didnít like was having a redundant clue. Iím talking about the first wood plank having the same translation as the letter of the queen. Hence one clue would have been enough to find the cave hidden in Mount Rushmore. I also noticed the kid in the Easter egg hunt is the same kid who is in the dying arms of Thomas Gates. One other thing I didnít like was some of the jokes were not really funny. Before I forget, about Kruger's character you see I was expecting for her to shine but sadly she didn't so boo hoo. Overall the movie was interesting enough, because itís really kind of hard to si...
