    One of the few times that a sequel lives up to the first.

    I mean, it's Nicholas Cage continuing to pretend to play a super smart history genius that gets out of ludicrous situations. How can I not enjoy this? I don't think it's as good as the first movie, but it still has a ton of fun moments, most notably a sequence where Cage makes a scene in Buckingham Palace. Very Cage-y considering this is a Disney movie.

    Ed Harris shrieking near the end of Book of Secrets is one of the cinema's sublime sounds.

    Not as good as the first but I still enjoyed it. It tries to be like the Indiana Jones series for a new generation. And while it doesn't have the wit that Indy has it still kinda of fulfills that action side of it. I do wish they would make a third one like they did with Indianan Jones so they can kind of bring it full circle and end the series. But overall a fun movie to watch even more than once 6/10.

    Not as good as the first movie. It suffers under the typical bigger and grander that a sequel hast to do. But it still sucks you right in. I just love the treasure hunting, it is so fun. The characters get picked up from the last movie and we move right along.

    The secrets, traps and locations are well thought off and are great to look at.

    A fun watch, perfect for a lazy sunday.

    Total bollocks, with a script written for the blind. But it's entertaining enough. I do like a good underground water feature set, but Tomb Raider's was better.

    Nicolas Cage is back as Ben Gates in another treasure-hunting adventure. While the play to history is indeed a storyline I like, the way "Book of Secrets" did is nothing of an improvement from the original. Narrative takes a back seat for action and thrills that are admittedly exciting. But the original cast and the new additions (Helen Mirren and Ed Harris) are given no wiggle room to expand, making this a wasted adventurous opportunity.

    Despite (or because of) the return of NATIONAL TREASURE’s writers, director, and main cast, the sequel comes across as redundant. It has more action than the first film, and if you’re a sucker for movies about guys with torches skulking through underground passages, there is some fun here. Historian hero Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage) is portrayed as too intelligent this time, able to solve the most arcane riddles without breaking a sweat. Everything come easy for Gates, which cuts down…

    I haven't been able to see a movie in two weeks and this is the movie I pick? Not even the half-good, totally ridiculous original? There must be some great sin I'm subconsciously atoning for.
