    A fairly good film that has the usual flaw of sequels in that the main character has a new contrived character arc, this time it involves something so silly that the stakes really aren't very high.

    National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007)
    Director – Jon Turteltaub
    Character – Benjamin Franklin Gates
    Watched 3rd November 2012 with Alison, Char, Christy and Genna
    Best Cage Rage Moment – When he turns to his father and says, 'Some people have a tendancy to OVERREACT!! If only he had said overact! (00:48:49).

    The 3rd November turned into a National Treasureathon! We were only going to watch the one film but couldn't resist and ended up watching both in the franchise…

    This is pretty ridiculous. The way the characters solve puzzles by saying a few sentences to each other is hard to believe. Especially when the words are coming out of Nicholas Cage's mouth.

    A wide-eyed but sloppy adventure (which oddly foreshadows a couple elements in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull). The standout scene by far is the one in the tunnel between the President and Ben Gates. In contrast to the calcified broadness of much of the Wibberleys' screenplay, it beautifully articulates the anti-cynicism of the film.

    Second verse same as the first. Bringing in Helen Mirren as Nic's mom and the foil to Daddy Jon Voigt was an inspired bit of casting. The concluding set piece is crazy fun and even though the resolution to the central driving motivation of the film is tidily wrapped up with almost no explanation I didn't really care. Seemed like Cage unwound a bit more for this one. I'd love to see a third entry in the franchise with Nic…

    It is less believable than the first movie but is a bit of a guilty pleasure I guess. Unlike Indy and Lara Croft before, Gates have the same love interest for the sequel.

    While it's quite similar to its predecessor, and it is a step down from it, National Treasure: Book of Secrets maintains the fun of the first, as well as the fun characters, and the mystery is quite intriguing, even if it isn't as cool as the one in the first. But as a whole, it is a fun sequel, and these are two fun movies that I would recommend.
    GRADE: B-

    more overtly influenced by indiana jones, and worse off for it. the third act in particular plays like subpar last crusade.

    nic cage is more full-on crazy here tho, so thats something
