Like an episode of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? with explosions and car chases.

Cage invests none of the edge, passion or heart we've come to expect from him in the part. Bean has no decent villainous moments, and the rest of the cast (save for Voight) is forgettable and generic.

National Treasure is so silly that the Monty Python version could use the same screenplay, line for line.

November 19, 2004
This infantile excuse for an adventure yarn plays more like a triple-cross between The DaVinci Code, CSI, and The Amazing Race than Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
November 18, 2004
When the effects seem more real than the characters, the quest, and, especially, the jokes, even an overstuffed movie like this one just feels empty.

Historical adventure is a fun romp for tweens and up.

November 19, 2004
Definitely has minor moments of Matterhorn-ride amusement for what's otherwise an insultingly preposterous, culturally barren clump of exploitative, flag-sticker patriotism.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
November 19, 2004
Safe, simplistic and stylistically inert film fodder meant only for the least discerning multiplex zombies.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
November 22, 2004
So bad on so many levels.
November 18, 2004
A cornucopia of ridiculously over-the-top action, humor, and romance conceived in the Bruckheimer tradition.

While clues abound in National Treasure, I was left clueless.

A dumb movie National Treasure remains, but only the unkindest heart could call it bad.

As vanilla a filmmaker as they make 'em, Turteltaub's filmography doesn't exactly inspire the greatest confidence that he can handle a monster-budgeted action/adventure.

Cage plays Gates way too broadly and crudely; I half expected him to break into his patented Elvis impersonation.

November 19, 2004
The film's trio of credited writers fails to generate anything in the way of character, and they create the largest and most unwieldy plot holes in a long time.

Though Turtletaub's direction is inspired, everything else from acting, to plot, and dialogue falls flat...

November 19, 2004
A scavenger hunt conceived in liberty and dedicated to the notion that all Jerry Bruckheimer films are created equal (equally dumb, that is).
Full Review| Original Score: 2/4
January 24, 2005
A big, overblown wazoo of absurdity.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
November 17, 2004
...may well have the most asinine plot in the history of cinema.
