Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Like a Hardy Boys mystery on steroids, National Treasure offers popcorn thrills and enough boyish charm to overcome its rampant silliness. Although it was roundly criticized as a poor man's rip-off of Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Da Vinci Code, it's entertaining on its own ludicrous terms, and Nicolas Cage proves once again that one actor's infectious enthusiasm can compensate for a multitude of movie sins. The contrived plot involves Cage's present-day quest for the ancient treasure of the Knights Templar, kept secret through the ages by Freemasons past and present. Finding the treasure requires the theft of the Declaration of Independence (there are crucial treasure clues on the back, of course!), so you can add "caper comedy" to this Jerry Bruckheimer production's multi-genre appeal. Nobody will ever accuse director Jon Turtletaub of artistic ambition, but you've got to admit he serves up an enjoyable dose of PG-rated entertainment, full of musty clues, skeletons, deep tunnels, and harmless adventure in the old-school tradition. It's a load of hokum, but it's fun hokum, and that makes all the difference. --Jeff Shannon

Amazon.com Review for "National Treasure: Book of Secrets"
Less engrossing than its 2004 predecessor National Treasure, Jon Turteltaub’s busy sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets is nevertheless a colorful and witty adventure, another race against overwhelming odds for the answer to a historical riddle. Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage), the treasure hunter who feverishly sought, in the first film, the whereabouts of a war chest hidden by America’s forefathers, is now charged with protecting family honor. When a rival (Ed Harris) offers alleged proof that Gates’ ancestor, Thomas Gates, was not a Civil War-era hero but a participant in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Ben and his father (Jon Voight) and crew (Justin Bartha, Diane Kruger) hopscotch through Paris, London, Washington DC, and South Dakota to gather evidence refuting the claim. The film is most fun when the hunt, as in National Treasure, squeezes Ben into such impossible situations as examining twin desks in the queen’s chambers in Buckingham Palace and the White House’s Oval Office, or kidnapping an American president (Bruce Greenwood) for a few minutes of frank talk. Helen Mirren, the previous year's Oscar winner for Best Actress, wisely joins the cast of a likely hit film as Ben’s archaeologist mother, long-estranged from Voight’s character but as feisty as the rest of the family. Returning director Turteltaub takes excellent advantage of his colorful backdrops in European capitals and the always-eerie Mount Rushmore, and oversees some wildly imaginative sets for this dramedy’s feverish third act in an audacious and completely unexpected, legendary setting. If National Treasure: Book of Secrets doesn’t feel quite as crisp and unique as its predecessor, it is still ingenious and wry enough to laugh a bit at itself. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Second movie was better than the first April 16, 2008
Format:Blu-ray
Never a serious movie, just fun, action and escapist tales.
We love the set !
And it's not easy to please us. I only write reviews for excellent or
horrid things, and this was the former!!

5.0 out of 5 stars National Treasures May 20, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Have been a fan of these movies since the first. Probably the only movies Disney has put out in the last 30 years that are worth a squat.
DVD is good, but BlueRay just puts the icing on it.

People who don't like Nick Cage need to get over it...he and the rest of the cast do a great job putting together an exciting film for both kids and adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great blu-ray combo / Great family fun July 10, 2008
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was so excited to get this combo and getting it on blu-ray was fantastic. It really seems to make the movies come alive. I bought the second movie without having seen it previously, and I am so thankful I did. The price was also great (I purchased as a pre-order). If you liked the first one, you will enjoy the second one as well.

By J. S
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I really like these movies. Always been a indiana fan so when these came out I thought they would suck but after seeing them I am hooked and bought both on Blu-ray. They look good.Sound is good. I hope they make another. Plus I hate Shia LaBeouf if they do make him the next indie I would rather watch these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Blu-ray Movies! May 31, 2008
By Lynn
Format:Blu-ray
National Treasure / National Treasure 2 - Book of Secrets [Blu-ray]I really enjoyed both of the National Treasure movies. They both were fun, action packed, and very entertaining. All of the actors played their parts well. I read the mixed reviews about the second movie...Book of Secrets...so I wasn't sure if it would be as good as the first one. I'm happy to say it was just as enjoyable as the first. The blu-ray transfer is excellent and the audio sounds INCREDIBLE on my surround sound system. Especially National Treasure 2 with English Dolby TrueHD is outstanding. Definitely, both movies would be a nice addition to your collection.

These two movies are among my favorites. Lots of action and not too phony. A little comedy in them, at least for me.

Awesome price on a 2-pack of very enjoyable action/adventure films. And on Blu-ray, no less. Both a little far fetched, but tons of fun.

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
