National Treasure

National Treasure (2004)

Director: Jon Turteltaub

Starring: Nicholas Cage, Diane Kruger, Justin Bartha, Sean Bean, Jon Voight, and Christopher Plummer

Description: Benjamin Franklin Gates descends from a family of treasure-seekers who've all hunted for the same thing: a war chest hidden by the Founding Fathers after the Revolutionary War. Ben's close to discovering its whereabouts, as is his competition, but the FBI is also hip to the hunt.

Review: I thought it was a fun movie. Your typical summer popcorn flick. I did have a good time watching it. The acting was okay and some of the situations were a little hard to believe. I did like the inventions of the founding fathers in hiding this treasure. I thought that was really interesting. One thing it does is make history look fun. I would say its pretty safe for younger kids and would be a good way of introducing them to American History (at least not making it to be boring). All in all, a fun little summer flick.

Score: 2.5 out of 5
