National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007)

Written By Awir Aditya on Wednesday, March 3, 2010 | 8:54 AM


Genre: Action/Adventure/Thriller/Drama/Mystery

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Jon Voight, Ed Harris, Justin Bartha, Diane Kruger, Helen Mirren

Continuing on the success of National Treasure, Ben Gates (Cage) is once again determined to break down priceless pieces of historical art to hunt for hidden treasures. Ben's great-grandfather was accused of conspiring in the murder of Abraham Lincoln by Mitch Wilkinson (Harris), something which Ben does not believe in and is determined to prove wrong. His determination to prove his ancestor innocent, puts him on the trail of the City of Lost Gold, a supposedly fictitious place which has a huge stockpile of gold. Along with his friends from the previous movie, Abigail (Kruger) and Riley (Bartha) and accompanied by his father Patrick (Voight) and mother Emily (Mirren) they search for mind-boggling clues that can lead them to this treasure. Breaking into the Tower of London, searching for clues in the White House Oval Office and kidnapping the United States president, their adventure is not what someone can call, a smooth ride. If you like the previous version than this one does not give you any reason to hate. However, if the first installment didn't go down your throat, this one wont either. The movie gives an interesting perspective towards popular historical artifacts which gives you the urge to personally examine them to see if what the movie says is genuinely true. The light inputs of humour are a relief and help make the movie more watchable.

Thumbs up: Gripping adventurous story
Thumbs down: On almost similar lines as the previous movie

Rating: 7.2/10
