    Synopsis


    National Treasure
    A man sets out to steal a lost fortune in order to save it in this adventure drama from producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage) is an archeologist who is from the eighth generation of a family who has shared an unusual quest. As Gates-family legend has it, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin hid a massive cache of gold during the waning days of the Revolutionary War and left clues as to its whereabouts in the original drafts of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. With no firm proof that it actually exists, Gates sets out to crack the code that will lead him to the fortune, which, as a member of the Gates clan, he is sworn to protect from wrongdoers. National Treasure also features Sean Bean, Harvey Keitel, Justin Bartha, and Jon Voight. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      A fun ride

      This is a fun movie; it is very much like one of the Disney rides. The producers did a lot of research on both the pre-Revolutionary War period and after; as well as the stories about the Knights Templar treasure. It is obvious that both the cast and crew had fun while making the film. It works because the cast takes their roles seriously; this helps make the whole movie work. Many of the little gimmicks(such as the glasses "made by Ben Franklin") work as the framers did have interests in these sort of things. Did they actually create a "treasure chamber"? No, of course they didn't. The movie also works as it is a mix of the conspiracy, treasure, and history genres; and, again, the producers did a great job of combining them(using a lot of humor in the mix as well). One thing that I would have liked as a special/bonus feature is a trivia track(or two) to run with the movie to help explain where they digress from fact to fiction, what discovery(ies) by the various framer(s) helped inspire the movie's gimmicks, etc.. This is minor, but, would have been fun. This is a good movie; lots of fun, some real historical info is in there(you have to dig them out; but, that is part of the fun.), and, it is fine for the whole family; without it having the feel of a "just for the kids" film. I can recommend it highly.

      Great Family Movie

      Posted

      This is a great movie to watch with the family. It has action, suspense, mystery, and a little bit of romance to go with it. It is a movie that most people can enjoy. What really makes it a family movie is that it has a lot of features good movies have such as action, mystery and suspense but without a lot of things that wouldn't be suitable for all the family. The movie is absent all the language and sexuality a lot of good movies have that have the features this movie does. The video is great. This movie presented on blu ray displays a picture that is quite crisp and accurately displays colors, especially flesh tones. The surround sound track is defaulted as dolby digital but has the option of listening to the surround sound track in uncompressed 5.1 PCM, It would have probably been better to have recored the surround sound track in one of the hi def lossless surround sound formats but the uncompressed 5.1 PCM surround sound track proved to be sufficient for this movie. There is a lot of rear channel action during action scenes and the dialogue is not drowned out by other sounds during the movie. I personally enjoyed this movie very much on blu ray. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

      A home run!

      I bought this with the Book of Secrets and received $10 off! A very good buy indeed. The movie was excellent! It was an intelligent movie with just the right amount of witty jokes etc. The movie reminded me of Da Vinci Code minus any nasty attacks on religious group. Nicolas Cage shined and played the role extremely well. Diane Kruger proved she can be a forceful actress yet again (Helen in Troy). I was happy to see a movie that actually delivered historical relevance with fiction in perfect balance. Blu-ray is off the charts! The graphics were so incredibly clear, you could see make up on Cage!!! I highly recommend this great movie that is appropriate for the entirely family.

      National Treasure offers a bit of adventure and intrigue. The concept of being able to decipher, through word play and hints, the location of historical treasure is fun! The plot was clear, as it was the search for a treasure from centuries, protected by an elite group initially. The fun is in the discovery of various clues, on the stem of a pipe, the back of an historical document, the thwarting of criminals also on the trail, and the final discovery. The actors all played their roles extremely well, and were very fun to watch and listen to. The added fun comes in an added Riley's game, which anyone can play.

      Packed With Adventure!

      I had never seen this movie before, but had heard alot about it. I just recently bought a copy of it from Best Buy and I have to say it is pretty great! Lot's of adventure and I liked that the humor was clean cut and funny also I liked the use of history in the movie. I'd say it's along the lines of an Indiana Jones movie, but with alot of high-tech mercenary action in it as well. That's the best way I can think to describe it. The music was great too it's hard to find a newer made movie with great music in it.

      A breath of fresh air for the genre

      National Treasure is a good yarn that has enough narrative substance, intrigue, action, and witty sidekicks to keep the viewer glued to the screen. With the lack of profanity, nudity and other indulgences which are common within the action genre, the entire family should find this film enjoyable. Thank you Disney for producing this wonderful film series. Looking forward to the next Ben Gates adventure in National Treasure 3.

      A great movie with clean, wholesome fun all can enjoy. My mom loves the movie as well as me and my wife, and we're using the DVD copy to stay at grandma and grandpas for when our little one visits there in the future. He will be able to watch this movie as he gets older with his grandparents.
