Editorial Reviews

Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage) sets out to find the lost 18 pages from the diary of Abraham Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth. One of the 18 missing pages has been discovered by Jeb Wilkinson (Ed Harris). On that page are the names of the Lincoln assassination conspirators. Thomas Gates, Ben Gates' great-great-grandfather, is listed on the page. After discovering this, Ben does not want Thomas Gates to be remembered "as a conspirator in the assassination of the man who brought this nation together." His quest to clear his family's name leads to unexpected twists and turns. Agent Sadusky (Harvey Keitel) tells Ben that a secret book has the information he needs. The president's "book of secrets" holds documents, for presidents' eyes only, of all the nations secrets; from the truth behind the JFK conspiracy, the missing minutes from the Watergate tapes, and Area 51. When Ben's request to see the book is denied, he says he must kidnap the president. Each clue leads him closer "to a discovery that the world isn't ready to believe."

4.0 out of 5 stars Great action-adventure film PLUS a cartoon! December 21, 2007
Format:Theatrical Release
Ben Gates is just not doing well at all:

His girlfriend broke up with him
He's living with his father

and....

Ben Gates' Great Grandfather, Thomas Gates, is just about to be nationally recognized as a hero when Mitch Wilkinson steps out and announces he has evidence that Thomas Gates was part of the conspiracy to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln.

In order to clear his ancestor's name, Ben, his sidekick Riley, and Ben's father start to investigate an order of Southern militants. What they discover was that Queen Victoria supported the Southerner's cause and she was attempting to help them find a treasure to finance the war.

Naturally, there's a treasure involved--the famed City of Gold. In order to find this treasure, they must race against Mitch Wilkinson and kidnap the US President to get to the Presidential Book of Secrets, containing information about everything from the City of Gold to Area 51 and the Kennedy Assassination.

Along the way, Ben's ex-girlfriend, Abigail, and Mom, Dr. Em Appleton, are added to the treasure hunting crew.

In my opinion, "Book of Secrets" has exceeded the "National Treasure." The story's better, the ensemble cast is strongly refined, and both the jokes and action just keep coming. Everyone in the cast save for Ed Harris impressed me. I honestly wasn't sure whether Mitch Wilkinson was a mercenary or a misguided man trying to claim some fame for his own family.

And yes--there appears to be a good chance we will see more of Ben Gates' adventuring. This one sanctioned by the President himself. I'm looking forward to Film 3.

An added bonus was the Disney cartoon up front where Goofy gets a bigscreen TV.

4.0 out of 5 stars Monumental Secrets January 9, 2008
Format:Theatrical Release|Verified Purchase
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Civil War dirty secrets are brought to light and set alight
2. Ben Gates' great-great grandfather gets bad name, but isn't completely clueless
3. Ben Gates (Cage) follows cryptic clues to clear the family name.
4. Clues actually lead to mighty big treasure, but that isn't the real prize, apparently.
5. Mitch Wilkinson (Ed Harris) goes to a lot of trouble to get Gates to show him the money
6. Apparently, the money isn't the only issue in his case either
7. Highly impossible but riveting treasure hunt crosses the pond and back
8. Security personnel at Buckingham Palace are not amused
9. Cameras installed for traffic offenses have excellent resolution and can actually come in handy for close-ups of small objects traveling at high speed
10. The President of the United States will drop everything to do a little tunnel exploration with Nicholas Cage.
11. Cage pulls Cheney too
12. Occupants of the Oval Office sometimes write secrets in a little diary and then hide it
13. You won't believe the places where people have been hiding stuff.
14. Helen Mirren adds class to the cast. Jon Voight and Harvey Keitel add comic relief. Cage adds yet another bad hairdo.

This movie has more exciting bits than the first (as far as I can remember), and can get the old adrenaline pumping. Fans of the Indiana Jones series will probably want to watch this, but will leave thinking that Harry Ford would have done a much better job in the lead role.

The romantic (!) parts don't work at all, and you'll really have to suspend reality for this one, but there's still enough to rate it four stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure for the Whole Family December 28, 2007
Format:Theatrical Release
The Book of Secrets closely follows the successful pattern of the first movie--adventurous, semi-historic treasure hunting. While some have criticized the movie from not being drastically different than the first offering, I did not view this as a problem. I'm not sure what the viewers with this particular criticism were expecting; I mean the movie is a sequel with the same characters, etc. In my mind you can't veer too far from the original premise or you won't have a logical sequel.

National Treasure 2 was a logical and worthy sequel to the first movie. All of the main characters and respective actors/actresses you'd expect to see made an appearance along with a few new additions. The film brings plenty of new puzzles, historic sites (including a few outside of the United States this time around), and perilous adventure.

How does the movie stack up to the original? If you enjoyed the first National Treasure then you'll like Book of Secrets. It is not as good as the first movie but it's awfully close. The only reason I say it is not as good as the first is because I had an idea of what to expect from the movie going in whereas with the first film everything (i.e., semi-historically based treasure hunting, characters, etc.) was completely new to me.

Additionally, the movie manages to offer all of these things in a very family friendly manner. I do not recall any offensive language or overly explicit sexuality. The violence is kept to a minim with no blood or gore. However, as with most adventure movies there was some suspense and action violence though nothing of great concern. This movie really is a treasure for the entire family.

Amazon doesn't honor pre-order price guarantee
This only applies to if the price is actually lower when the movie actually comes out. So, if the price is lower on the day the movie comes out, you will get the lower price. I have seen this happen many times, even to myself, where the price temporarily lowers, but returns to normal price by... Read More
