    There's a bit much going on, but Nicolas Cage has a couple good scenes he can go nuts in. Also Ed Harris is in it and he's a way more interesting antagonist than Sean Bean ever was in the first movie. Also Helen Mirren is in it.

    This is actually a way better movie than I remember from when I first saw it some 7-8 years ago.

    "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" is the clearly inferior sequel to the 2004 film "National Treasure". The original film from 2004 was a fun, exciting adventure film. It had an original and interesting premise, and it was an overall entertaining time. "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" is, however, a big disappointment.

    A film that tries too hard to encapsulate elements of the original, without success. It has an interesting story, that is, unfortunately, too convoluted for its own good. A…

    There's nothing deep or meaningful about it, and it somehow manages to make Dan Brown novels seem layered and profound, but it's entertaining nonetheless. It basically skims off the top of American history, and there's only a whisper of a story present, but it's fun. It never takes itself seriously, and, though there's little sense or subtlety to be found, it works well as pure popcorn. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's memorable or even "good", per se, but there's certainly worse films to be caught watching. Almost instantly forgettable, though.

    The sequel hurt. It was way more complicated than it needed to be, and because of that most of the swashbuckling adventure and mystery from the first movie are absent. Sure, it has its moments (like discovering secret tunnels with the President, or causing a fracas in Buckingham Palace), but it just wasn't as exciting as the first. And that's pretty disappointing to me.

    Followed up last night's viewing of the first film with the sequel. Loses half a star for ridiculously ridiculous plot and gratuitous Euro visit, but gains it back for replacing Sean Bean with Ed Harris and bring in Dame Helen.

    Dieser Film ist vor allem eines: absolut unrealistisch gegen Ende hin sogar ziemlich albern, aber das gute ist er nimmt sich selbst auch nicht wirklich ernst; und wer darüber hinweg sehen kann findet einen gelungenen Mix aus Witz, Spannung und Action. Nicht so gut wie sein Vorgänger, trotzdem sehr Unterhaltsam.

    La suite fonctionne toujours. A nouveau, il y a de l'action, il y a des énigmes, il y a des trésors. On court avec Nicolas Cage et on ne s'arrête pas du film. Même si ça ressemble beaucoup à Indiana Jones ...

    I remember thinking the first one was kinda dumb fun, but this isn't even close to that level. Honestly, I can't remember one detail except that I was bored silly.
