Good mix of adventure and history,
This review is from: National Treasure [VHS] (VHS Tape)
National Treasure, a movie full of high adventure and history. Normally treasure hunts are associated with pirates and treasure maps were x marks the spot. National Treasure puts a new spin on the meaning of treasure map. We are taken back in time to when our founding fathers created the Declaration of Independence and all other national documents of our nation. Who ever would have thought to put a map on the back? This movie is so full of energy and fun filled adventure you never have a moment to relax. The concept of figuring out where the treasure map is and how all these historical places with in our country lead to the treasure is amazing and very creative. It actually really does make you wonder what all the symbols on the dollar bill really mean. Not so much a movie for kids, but this movie is a sure winner for adults especially those interested in history and adventure. The creator of this movie really put a twist on our countries history that we only wish was true. This movie has you thinking the entire time as to what is going to happen next and if the good guys will come out on top. You are thinking so much; you leave the theater in awe and wonder, continuing to think about the whole movie as you leave for home.
