In this adventure-filled sequel to the blockbuster National Treasure, Nicolas Cage reprises his role as artifact hunter and archaeologist extraordinaire Ben. "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" has without a doubt the most absurd and fevered plot since, oh, say, "National Treasure" (). What do I. National Treasure: Book of Secrets (titled National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets on the DVD/Blu-ray Disc release) is a adventure film. It is a sequel to the.
They're famous now one has written a best seller , but they never discuss the coincidence that they are involved in an uncannily similar adventure. Yes, once again they are all trapped within the earth and dangling over a terrifying drop.
And their search once again involves a secret document and a hidden treasure. No, this time it's not written in invisible ink on the back of the Declaration of Independence. It involves a missing page from Booth's diary, a coded message, an extinct language and a book that each U.
I have only scratched the surface. The heroes of this tale have what can only be described as extraordinary good luck. Benjamin once again is an intuitive code-breaker, who has only to look at a baffling conundrum to solve it.
And what about their good fortune when they are on top of Mt. Rushmore, looking for hidden signs, and Benjamin interprets an ancient mention of "rain from a cloudless sky" and passes out half-liter bottles of drinking water for everyone to sprinkle on the rock so the old marking will show up? It's not a real big mountain, but it's way too big for six people to sprinkle with Crystal Geyser.
But, hey! After less than a minute of sprinkling, here's the mark of the spread eagle! Compared to that, the necessity of kidnapping the president from his own birthday party and leading him into a tunnel beneath Mount Vernon is a piece of cake, even though it is never quite made clear how Benjamin knows about the tunnel.
Oh, yeah: He has George Washington's original blueprints. For that matter, it's never explained why so many people over so many generations have spent so much time and money guarding the City of Gold. And why leave clues if they are designed never to be interpreted, and for that matter, you don't want anyone to interpret them?
And although lots of gold has been mined in South Dakota , how much would it take to build a city? Remember, all the gold in Fort Knox is only enough to fill Fort Knox , which is about as big as City Hall in the underground city.
Yes, I know, all of this is beside the point. The person who attends "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" expecting logic and plausibility is on a fool's mission. This is a Mouth Agape Movie, during which your mouth hangs open in astonishment at one preposterous event after another.
This movie's plot doesn't play tennis without a net, but also without a ball and a racket. It spins in its own blowback. Already have an account? Log in here.

A talented cast goes to waste in the improbable National Treasure: Book of Secrets , which is eerily similar to the first film.
Super Reviewer. Your email address will solely be used for verifying the ticket. This just might be the silliest movie ever to feature three Academy Award winners. Richard Roeper. Leave it to coproducer Jerry Bruckheimer to revive the Indiana Jones cycle without the period setting, the camp elements, or Spielberg's efficiency; director Jon Turteltaub just plods along.
Jonathan Rosenbaum. This sequel is what you would expect: If you liked the original, you'll probably enjoy this retread. But be warned: It bogs down in a drawn-out scene near the end. Claudia Puig. As much as you want to applaud the movie's winking commitment to its own Looney Tunes logic, it's frustrating when lazy and illogical plot devices are used like cattle prods.
Peter Howell. The movie's convoluted hide-and-seek plot also demands a White House break-in that makes about as much sense as subprime mortgage rates. Jeff Shannon. This American history-themed action thriller doesn't get many points for realism, but it makes up ground in so many other areas that you probably won't care. Peter Hartlaub. The plot is illogical to the core, which one would have accepted had the film been a sheer roller-coaster ride, leaving you little time to notice the holes in the plot.
Namrata Joshi. National Treasure: Book of Secrets is a pretty typical blockbuster sequel, focused intently on appeasing what it thinks the audience wants, and missing out on what it takes to make a truly good movie. Joshua Starnes. You have to suspend your disbelief, but so what?
Tony Macklin. The derivative National Treasure: Book of Secrets is a smooth, lightweight action film for undemanding audiences.
Tim Grierson. A slight improvement over its agreeable forebearer David Nusair. It's like doing a puzzle a second time. It's familiar, it's redundant and it's rarely exciting.

Timothy V.Vleermuisman schreef: Crazy Credits The opening Walt Disney Pictures logo is "darker and more orange" according to the director. Net als in het eerste deel wandelen ze eigenlijk door alle obstakels heen en breken ze bij gebouwen in op manieren waar ze nog wat van kunnen leren in de Ocean reeks.

Het was alleen zo slecht uitgewerkt en, zoals al gezegd op deze pagina, leek het vaak alsof hij totaal geen idee had waar hij mee bezig was en de informatie over de schat met geluk bij hem terecht kwam.
