Directed by Jon Turteltaub, National Treasure is nothing but a series of silly stunts and chases that just rush by.

While not the greatest film of the year, it is definitely one with a considerable amount of intrigue and action, not to mention some actual history lessons...

It is a definitely guilty pleasure, and 90 percent of the reason why can be summed up in two words: Nicolas Cage.

National Treasure is certainly no Indiana Jones but it's still fun a ride.

A serviceable actioner, with a playful comic tone and a series of reasonably thrilling set pieces.

There might be too many inaccuracies in the plot, the mix of the past and the present is naive and at times downright silly but makes for fun viewing if you don't put your thinking caps on. The film has enough to keep you involved.

National Treasure is so ridiculous, but I love it. I love it so much.

The film's infectious enthusiasm for American history-never mind that it's an incredibly fanciful version of that history-is a welcome respite from the hyper-self-conscious civic pride Hollywood usually displays.

It is ... for all its moments a quintessential Bruckheimer project: a big movie that at its core is just too small.

If you can see the film through the eyes of a child -- one who thinks a cheesy thriller is the ideal way to pick up new facts about history -- then this isn't that bad a yarn.

Has almost nothing to recommend it (Justin Bartha's performance being the lone high point), not even any gnarly explosions, which doesn't bode well for our man Bruckheimer.
