It is a definitely guilty pleasure, and 90 percent of the reason why can be summed up in two words: Nicolas Cage.
June 24, 2006
A mild holiday caper, for the wettest of afternoons.
December 14, 2004
This movie couldn't be more stale if it'd been dug up by archaeologists.
November 24, 2004
This movie is a fortune wasted.
November 23, 2004
National Treasure gets more entertaining as the preposterousness rises.
November 22, 2004
So bad on so many levels.
November 20, 2004
Cage? Movie star as social studies teacher.
November 19, 2004
Taken simply as a popcorn flick, National Treasure has its pleasures.
November 19, 2004
The best cinematic comfort food you could ask for.
November 19, 2004
Ten minutes into the picture, you're searching the screen for life-support machines.
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.
November 19, 2004
Sluggish for a Jerry Bruckheimer production, but maybe the kids will learn something.
November 19, 2004
As documents go, this one tastes like cardboard.
November 19, 2004
The best thing about National Treasure is how clever it is.
November 19, 2004
Cage plays Gates way too broadly and crudely; I half expected him to break into his patented Elvis impersonation.
November 19, 2004
An almost tongue-in-cheek fantasy wrapped around well-researched historical details.
November 19, 2004
It has no ambition, little sense and false sentiment, but it does have velocity, high spirits and scale.
November 19, 2004
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.
November 19, 2004
People run. Things blow up. Sometimes, just to add another layer of nuance, people run away as things blow up.
November 19, 2004
Interminable and riddled with plot holes you could drive a humvee through.
