    "Book of Secrets" is enjoyable but had me rolling my eyes throughout. For some reason I am able to suspend my disbelief when a 200-ft. tall radioactive dinosaur tramples the streets of Tokyo but am not for this movie. Nicolas Cage's character Ben Gates solves puzzles and deciphers codes at break neck speed. He could probably size up a Rubik's Cube in about 10 milliseconds. Somehow Gates manages to break into the Oval Office and escape from the White House…

    Cage takes his forehead around the globe looking for a city of gold. Helen Mirren tags along in the 2nd half, my favourite bit.

    As I said in my review of the first National Treasure, I was in a hospital receiving intravenous antibiotics and these movies were right in front of me, so I was forced to watch them.

    I must say I quiet enjoy them, I know the plot is kind of silly, partly because they tried to make action with books and secrets, so it's kind of entertaining, nothing spectacular but entertaining. I felt also these movies to be made for a more younger generation, for kids.

    Another off-switched day, and had just as well stay to the franchise.

    Rewatch-probability: 4/5
    (A lot weaker than the first, but still not too many modern adventure movies to choose from for guilty pleasures)

    I don't understand how this movie, and the first one in the series, can be so fucking awesome every fucking time.

    the kind of movie where a character tells his friends -- a group of eccentrics who previously decoded an intricate system of historical clues to find a legendary long-buried treasure (and are in the process of doing so for a second time) -- about the existence of a book containing powerful secrets handed down from one American President to another, and they all go "You're crazy, that's absurd." seems to be in a much bigger hurry as it lurches even…

    A fun, fast paced adventure that is a nice sequel to the original. The story is wild and totally silly but this just adds to the fun atmosphere of the film (6.7.08)

    After acting in a string of abysmal failures, Nicolas Cage bounces back a bit with the second 'National Treasure' movie, 'Book of Secrets.' You see, instead of being really bad, it's just really mediocre. The same formula from the surprisingly palatable first film returns here, except feeling a little bit less fresh and providing a ton less stakes. If I remember correctly, Cage and company were getting shot at in the first film, and here they're just kind of looking…

    National Treasure is the kind of movie you want to see when you are sick and want to waste a day doing nothing. That was today. I'm a geek so i like learning that two desks were made from the remains of the HMS Resolute, a british ship salvaged from the Arctic by the US in 1876. The US returned the ship to great britain, which gifted one of the desks to the US as a thank you. One desk…
