National Treasure: Book of Secrets is a pretty typical blockbuster sequel, focused intently on appeasing what it thinks the audience wants, and missing out on what it takes to make a truly good movie.

National Treasure: the Book of Secrets is an absurd adventure, but its absurdity is wacky and warmhearted. You have to suspend your disbelief, but so what? National Treasure: the Book of Secrets delivers on what it sets out to be: lively and

The derivative National Treasure: Book of Secrets is a smooth, lightweight action film for undemanding audiences.

A slight improvement over its agreeable forebearer...

It's like doing a puzzle a second time. It's familiar, it's redundant and it's rarely exciting.

If you can set aside the movie's countless flaws and just go to watch a stupid mindless movie, then you are good to go with this film.

Unfortunately, "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" falls under the category of been there, done that.

Absurd second installment in the Indiana Jones-for-idiots franchise...

Over-stimulating brain bubblegum guaranteed to take kids under ten straight to adrenaline heaven!

Too bad such a stellar combo cast had to get dumbed down for such inconsequential pandemonium.

Even sillier and less entertaining than the first film in this series.

If you desperately need to escape the house this holiday season, avoid this treasure and see something else.

Ultimately, Book of Secretsis an embarrassingly by-the-numbers rehash of the first National Treasure, lighter on the swirly, emotion-cuing music but still well-trafficked in ridiculous feats and worse dialogue.

The first installment was a moronic, overblown scavenger hunt masquerading as a high concept social studies lesson. The sequel is bigger, louder and, implausible as it is to believe, even more preposterous.

The gimmicks have worn off and the performances have gone stale in this uninspired sequel to a surprisingly fun adventure film.

Uma diversão esquecível; algo que você consome, digere e elimina sem conseguir se lembrar posteriormente do que passou por sua garganta.

Just like the original, it's too caught up in its mythological zeal and furious pacing to do much for our "Indiana" jones. A capably filmed diversion that's breathlessly wired for whiplash but instantly forgettable.
