National Treasure: Book of Secrets

Critics Consensus

A talented cast goes to waste in the improbable National Treasure: Book of Secrets, which is eerily similar to the first film.

Audience Reviews for National Treasure: Book of Secrets

  • May 21, 2013
    Maybe this movie is fun, but ridiculous plot and bad acting killed all possibilities of this movie being something more.

    I actually liked this one more than the first. It wasn't as ridiculous and it just wasn't as boring. Plus, it was a lot funnier. I really liked Ed Harris' role as the villain unlike Sean Bean's role as the villain in the first. Harris' fate is a lot more satisfying and meaningful to the story arc than Bean's was. And I thought the idea of the President having a secret book that holds information only accessible to the U.S. Presidents was really cool, and I think it's definitely possible that something like it exists. National Treasure: Book of Secrets is a sequel that works because it's more interesting and more entertaining than the original.

    Just as good as the first in getting you gripped into the film, Maybe not as clever as the first but still very good, Maybe sometimes hard to follow on how the clues are figured out but a very good sequel.

    National Treasure: Book of Secrets ratchets up the crazy by a factor of 10. This time Ben Gates is on a quest to find the lost City of Gold in order to prove that his great grandfather wasn't a conspirator in the Abraham Lincoln assassination. Nicolas Cage, Diane Kruger, and Jon Voight return, and are joined by Ed Harris and Helen Mirren. Cage and Kruger easily slip back into their roles and recapture the magic that made their characters so fun in the first film. However, this plot is just too convoluted to go with. There are a lot of fun moments, but the adventure's not as interesting or entertaining. The story is weak, but National Treasure: Book of Secrets manages to deliver a fun and solidly entertaining adventure.
