National Treasure: Book of Secrets


National Treasure: Book of Secrets
2004's National Treasure did so well that Disney decided to make it again, using the same director, mostly the same cast, and a clone of the storyline. This time around, our hero is trying to clear his great-great-grandfather's name, as he was blamed for offing President Lincoln. The search for the truth about the secret book and the city of gold takes them to London and Washington, where they kidnap the president. Expect plenty of Jerry-Bruckheimer-style action scenes and a plotline which disappointed the critics. The crowds are likely to be impressed.

123 minutes.
Mature Accompaniment under 10 (Violence).

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconCage is out-acted by his hair.

Cape Times
Kevin Crust quote iconAction clone just offers more of the same.
5
The Citizen
Annette Bayne quote iconOne tends to forgive the improbability of it all for the sake of the adventure.
14
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThe person who attends National Treasure: Book of Secrets expecting logic and plausibility is on a fool's mission. This is a Mouth Agape Movie, during which your mouth hangs open in astonishment at one preposterous event after another.
10
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconHow to review a movie that's essentially a copy of its predecessor?
8
ScreenIt
quote iconI just couldn't get past the preposterous material, behavior and developments, no matter how hard I tried to suspend my apparently ample disbelief.
