I love Riley Poole so much! He is so cute! He totally makes the movie one million times better! I love Riley!!!
this one was alright but thought the villian was a little soft though i guess because its a disney and all and sometimes they're sequels i noticed aren't entirely that good than the original. this continues the indiana jones like adventures of treasure hunters and has its comedic moments like...riley.
Rent this one from the video club, and don't waste your money. It was completely absurd. I don't mind suspending credibility in order to enjoy a film, but this was ridiculous. The most obscure clue figured out and acted on in a matter of minutes. An endless and incredibly destructive car chase through London with no consequences. Need to figure out an ancient and extinct language for a clue? No problem - someone will be right nearby who just happens to have studied it in depth. All of it is a major insult to the audience's intelligence.
eh...that's about all i can say about it. it's a sequel to an okay movie (that's on the cool side of okay). soooo...eh.
Some people say that the second is not as good as the first. Well I liked National Treasure 2. It is well worth the purchase.
With humorous quirks tastefully distributed throughout the film, Nicholas Cage takes you on an almost believable journey across the globe to clear his familys' name of a conspiracy plot they were never part of. Many surprises await those who choose to pop this dvd into their home theater systems....Definitely recommended.
National Treasure: Book of Secrets is undoubtedly better than the first, a remarkable story, fascinating historical insights, and dialgoue both humerous and creative. Thus, I refuse to understand why it received such disappointing reviews. Perhaps my fellow reviewers lack the penetration to comprehend the depth of the film.
While there were a few interesting parts, this one just did not have the ability to glue the watcher to their seat like the 1st one did. I wish we would have never bought this one.
This was an awesome movie. I think it might have even beat out the first movie- that usually doesn't happen with sequels. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. This movie is for everyone, especially history buffs. This movie makes you think the treasures are real- I know we want them to be. Make sure you see this movie. It is a must-see.
Before seeing this movie, I had little/no idea of what this one would be about since the 1st movie finished the chapter on the Nation Treasure. (The MAIN reason I liked the original movie is that I wasn't able to predict what will happen next (I can do that with most other movies/series. e.g. When they think that found the treasure and the room was empty! This is not as enthralling as the one before it, but I don't regret seeing it. I have added this oneto my DVD collection to view more times.
This is an absolutely amazing movie. Everybody that likes adventure and excitement should watch it. It is extremely clean and has a bit of humor in it. It is even more exciting than the first one. I loved it! I was a little unsure about buying it at first, but I'm ever so glad I did. It's a must-see.
Well, this is a really good movie. I can't doubt that. But unfortunatly I think, it doesn't create a good thrill, that you wan't to review it.
I have given National Treasure: Book of Secrets a 4-star rating because I am comparing it to its prequel. National Treasure: Book of Secrets starts out as a memory, as did #1. This memory, however is right after the Civil War. Actually, a few days after the Civil War, the night of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. Ben Gates and Patrick Gates claim that Patrick’s grandfather saved a “national treasure” from the wrong hands. History seems to turn on them when Mitch Wilkinson shows a page of a diary that seems that Grandfather Gates was the mastermind of Lincoln’s assassination. Ben is then sent on a mission across the globe to prove his great-grandfather’s innocence. National Treasure: Book of Secrets does not have as much history as the first one did. To make up for that, the writer seemed to have put a lot more action in the film. I know I liked the first one because of the history in it, but this one is great for a change in pace. I liked this movie because the action excites me and everything is not what it seems. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves action, history, and understands the Civil War.
I saw this in the theatre and loved it! I think this one is better than the first and cant wait for the 3rd!
Nicolas Cage. Face/Off. Con Air. Family Man. Easily the biggest and bestest actor of the past 2.5 decades. So when I heard a National Treasure 2 was coming out, well first I rented National Treasure 1, and then I got REALLY excited. I mean, the first one was good, so the sequal was gonna be GREAT (as they always are)! Needless to say the Cagemeister did not disappoint. I was so inspired by the movie, I wrote my 9th grade american final history paper all about it. I haven't got the grade back yet but I have no doubts. Nick cage is my hero!!!!!!!
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen! It helped me learn a lot in school!
