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.

Not only safe for Junior and Grandma but also pretty entertaining.

Turteltaub manages to stitch it all together well enough so that the ludicrous nature of the characters' quest doesn't hit you until the final credits roll.

A mild holiday caper, for the wettest of afternoons.

The treasure hunt is cool in this DVD, it's a whole game of numbers and quizzes go get to some of the Easter eggs.

The film plays on every clich and every stereotype imaginable, and part of its charm is playing them exactly to an audience's happiest expectations.

The historical touches make the film more akin to classics like "Raiders of the Lost Ark" than to duds like "Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (and ended simultaneously)".

This is a bravura film that genuinely understands the nature of true family entertainment and provides it in spades.

National Treasure may be dumb and relatively short on action scenes, but it's still a lot of fun, largely thanks to Cage and Bartha.

Few can argue that the movie is totally unbelievable, but if one is able to leave all sense of logic at the door, it's very hard not to have a darn good time in the process.

Stealing the Declaration of Indepenence is easy - making an interesting film is tough!

... a semi-historical mystery-thriller... too many chases and clichs keep this good movie from being great.
