National Treasure: Book of Secrets


***** National Treasure: Book of Secrets. Action/adventure.

Directed by: Jon Turteltaub.

Starring: Nicholas Cage, Justin Bartha, Diane Kruger, John Voight, Helen Mirren



We saw this at the Hercules.

I'm not going to summarize the plot--first, it's been too long since I saw it, and second, it doesn't really matter. It's more of the same: action, adventure, intrigue, conspiracies up the ying-yang, inventive methods of hiding/finding the treasure, and lots of amusing interactions between the characters.

I absolutely love this kind of movie, and there was nothing about this one that took me out of the admittedly fantastic (in the fantasy-sense of the word) movie world.

Driving home from the theater, we always dissect the movie we just saw. With this one, all we did was remind each other of favorite scenes. In other words: we all loved it; none of us had any complaints. So: five stars. Call it a guilty pleasure, because I know it's not the height of cinematic brilliance. I know it's not logically possible. I really don't care. I had a great time watching it, and we'll be getting the DVD.

Is this the 2nd movie? I'm looking forward to seeing the 2nd movie, after loving the first one. I can't wait! :)
 
Julia 2!

I half-watched the first one ( I half-watch a lot of movies that my husband brings home, as I write at the computer.) But I haven't seen this one yet.
