Movie Review: National Treasure - Book of Secrets


Featuring: Nicolas Cage, Diane Kruger, Jon Voight, Helen Mirren, Ed Harris, Harvey Keitel

Genre: action, adventure

Plot: Ben Gates goes on another treasure hunt

Acting: too much action to leave time for acting

Drama: err… just look at all that gold

Action: imagine Indiana Jones merged with Thomas Crown Affair

Funny: the dialogue is

Visuals: nothing outstanding though we did get to see the oval office

Soundtrack: don’t remember

Official website:

Comments: Come to think of it I don’t remember much of the first one… I do remember I didn’t think much of it thought. Regarding the sequel… I guess it was alright for a Saturday action movie night. Had a bit of laugh in places, but I found it too rushed and schematically explained. Missed Sean Bean, Ed Harris tried to do his best with what he had to work with… so did Jon Voight and Helen Mirren who made an entertaining couple together. I was expecting Lara Croft to show up at the end and save the day declaring she was Ben’s half long lost sister…

Rating: 3/5
