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

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

Historical adventure is a fun romp for tweens and up.

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

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.

A big, overblown wazoo of absurdity.

This is Bruckheimer's niche. Don't ever expect him to adapt a Nicholas Sparks book into a film any time soon.

This movie couldn't be more stale if it'd been dug up by archaeologists.

All of this could have been lots of fun. If only Harrison Ford, or someone just as good, had played Ben.

... a mock-epic assault on the conventional wisdom of American history.
December 7, 2004
It is harmless fun, but it could have been done a lot better.
December 5, 2004
a passably enjoyable adventure romp

That the movie manages to maintain interest and gain occasional involvement is somewhat of a feat considering, although not enough of a feat for it to succeed.

This movie is a fortune wasted.

What's the secret to turning a clever treasure adventure into a humdrum theme-park ride? Here's a clue: Jerry Bruckheimer.

Instead of another Raiders of the Lost Ark, we get to watch plunderers of a lost art.

Who knew the Founding Fathers were cultish Masons hording gold under Wall Street? Perhaps the craziest film ever made by Jerry Bruckheimer.
