The gold appears to be fake...By Meako (59 reviews) from Sheffield , 29 Jan 2008
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHide
[Highly rated reviewer]The first National Treasure film was a reasonably fun sub-Indiana Jones romp. It far outshone the lacklustre efforts of the Tomb Raider flicks, and had a decent set of puzzles and clues which strung together well. Sadly, this second outing is none of the above! The plot seems more like an excuse for the crew to go on holiday at some nice locations in Europe and US, rather than a logical progression on the trail to find the lost city of gold. Right from the offset the film shows contempt for the intelligence of the audience by having a clue refer to something which wasn't actually in existence until 10 years later. That is only the start of the gaping plot-holes in the film....it gets worse, but let's not dwell. Now I could accept a weak plot in a work of fantasy fiction if the remaining aspects were fun to watch, but sadly only Cage seems to still be channelling the energy of the first film. The rest of the cast are terribly wooden, including Helen Mirren (who can't seem to decide on which accent she should use from one scene to the next). Ed Harris seems to have phoned in his part, and his character goes through a bizarre personality change towards the end of the film which makes no sense at all. Sadly they have recently announced a third film is in the planning stages. This second time around was more than enough for me....I'll be skipping any future entries in the franchise!

National Treasure, The Book of SecretsBy a customer from Hampshire , 14 May 2010Although this was on the lines if Indiana Jones and quite unbelievable it was full of action from beginning to end and something the whole family could enjoy
National Treasure - Book of secretsBy JSS (1 review) from reading , 02 May 2010This film is so bad I couldn't watch it to the end, and my children wandered off with boredom after 20 mins.
National Treasure 2By Han27 (1 review) from Buckinghamshire , 28 Apr 2010An epic adventure that keeps you glued to the screen all the way. Perfectly portrayed, and explained well through out.
Action packed added with witty remarks and comical moments. Actor Nicolas Cage portrays his character well and the others fit perfectly to keep unwinding the mystery and us entertained.
A must see film and no need to have seen the first one but that does set the scene perfectly and hopefully there'll be the perfect Tri-ology with some of characters we enjoy.
National Treasure - Book of SecretsBy Czar (24 reviews) from London , 24 Apr 2010Quite dreadful Nicholas Cage movie, almost a copy of the 1st film in the franchise. Relying heavily on special effects, with a very silly plot, this is only good for 10 year olds.
A nice adventure filmBy a customer from London , 21 Apr 2010It's an entertaining film. You'll have a fun time. Of course, you should be prepared to accept all this 'tall story' which recount the plot. Don't forget that it's a film made by Walt Disney ;)
