    A patently ridiculous piece of fluff with one of the silliest plots ever put on film. Throw in a manic Nicolas Cage as a patriotic treasure hunter and a bunch of big turns from a well worn supporting cast and you've got a recipe for disaster. It all works though, primarily because the film never loses sight of just how stupid it is. It's a propulsive exercise in exposition as our heroes hurtle from one implausibility to the next, but the whole thing manages to retain an admirable sense of fun and wonder.

    Superior to the original, Book of Secrets is very similar to National Treasure, but has a more natural relationship between the characters, and has also more cool a-la-Indiana-Jones scenes. It's nice fun.

    I guess I like this one even more than the first one. I wasn't aware of that until we rewatched them back-to-back.

    It might be that I prefer Ed Harris as antagonist to Sean Bean. Or it could be that the big set piece toward the end is even more enjoyable than the one in the first film, despite being even more ridiculous. The Indiana Jones vibe is unmistakable in this film, particularly with Jon Voight as Ben's (Cage) bumbling…

    A lot more cheese, a lot less fun.

    I think I enjoyed this more the first time I saw this when I did not see things coming. This time it felt a little more tired and predictable.

    I'm not gonna lie, this is for me one of the most entertaining and rewatchable movies ever made. It's stupid, but it's also stupid good.

    Just like the first one, I still enjoyed this movie.
