National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007)
National Treasure: Book of Secrets Synopsis
In this follow up to the box-office hit ďNational Treasure,Ē treasure hunter Ben Gates (Nicolas Cage) once again sets out on an exhilarating, action-packed new global quest to unearth hidden history and treasures.
When a missing page from the diary of John Wilkes Booth surfaces, Benís great-great grandfather is suddenly implicated as a key conspirator in Abraham Lincolnís death. Determined to prove his ancestorís innocence, Ben follows an international chain of clues that takes him on a chase from Paris to London and ultimately back to America. This journey leads Ben and his crew not only to surprising revelations Ė but to the trail of the worldís most treasured secrets.
National Treasure is everything The Da Vinci Code wanted to be and isnít. The first movie was good enough and successful enough that maybe it deserves a sequel, but how will they do it? National Treasure was about a generational mystery which culminated in a recent heir. How many mysteries can Benjamin Gateís family have?
Hopefully plenty, because thereís still fun to be had in watching Nic Cage do his history geek thing as he races around historical landmarks. The first movie did a wonderful job of bringing history to life, making it exciting and interesting in a way stuffy textbooks simply cannot. Usually Europe or Africa gets all the good treasure hunting movies. Itís nice to see the United States getting a turn. The second one should be just as fun as the first, I canít wait to see it.
