News & Interviews for National Treasure
Critic Reviews for National Treasure
It is a definitely guilty pleasure, and 90 percent of the reason why can be summed up in two words: Nicolas Cage.
There might be too many inaccuracies in the plot, the mix of the past and the present is naive and at times downright silly but makes for fun viewing if you don't put your thinking caps on. The film has enough to keep you involved.
Historical adventure is a fun romp for tweens and up.
This movie couldn't be more stale if it'd been dug up by archaeologists.
Audience Reviews for National Treasure
Fun, but terrible.
Although technically the film wasn't very good (the acting was ok at best and the main plot details we pretty obvious) I had quite a lot of fun watching it. I was able to get into the story and it felt like I was going on this journey with them. I really liked the figuring out the riddles and the adventures and it seems this film is a guilty pleasure of mine. It's kind of a second rate Da Vinci Code/Angels and Demons.
