It's never a good sign when you can figure out a movie's secret plot before the characters involved.

I'd stop well short of calling it a cinematic treasure, but it's better than the first one, and that's worth at least a few gold doubloons in my book.

Practically a duplicate of the breezy (and bloated) original, National Treasure: Book of Secrets is not without charm, but it lacks the thrill seeker's joy of discovery.

There's some fun...but the budding franchise seems already out of steam.

Given the emphasis on history ... [it] reminded me of a line from the Herman's Hermits tune about that jolly historical figure Henry the Eighth: "Second verse, same as the first."

Now our heroes are off to the Library of Congress, which is as close as most of this audience will ever come to a book that isn't filled with stamps.

A little sillier than the original, and a little stupider, and somehow it still manages to be shockingly enjoyable.

In a story even more far fetched than the last one, Nic Cage and company prove that enjoyable characters can make up for a lot of bad plot.

This just might be the silliest movie ever to feature three Academy Award winners.

Leave it to coproducer Jerry Bruckheimer to revive the Indiana Jones cycle without the period setting, the camp elements, or Spielberg's efficiency; director Jon Turteltaub just plods along.

Probable box-office success doesn't keep it from being a largely uninspired concoction.

There's sounder logic and more genuine sleuthing in a 'Scooby Doo' cartoon.

You get the uneasy feeling that they're making it up as they go along.

an exercise in silliness, but it's also undeniably a great deal of fun

Familiarity doesn't breed contempt here, but it's so familiar as to keep us from getting caught up in the scavenger hunt this time around.

Continuing the whodunit/where-is-it/what-does-it-mean formula, it's a fun-filled romp, chock-full-of-historical trivia.

Mirren and Voight provide much of the fun here as their characters argue about who's responsible for their divorce and longtime estrangement.
