Movie: National Treasure: Book of Secrets

Took my kids to the movies last night and saw National Treasure: Book of Secrets, the sequel to National Treasure. It was certainly action packed, and I was on the edge of my seat many times, but overall felt it was a bit of a let down. The Nicholas Cage character wasn't as passionate about his quest this time round, nor was I pleased that Ben Gates romance had gone awry. As other reviewers pointed out, it was pretty much a remake of the first movie. The villain's reasons for what he did were weak, and Ed Harris's performance, an actor I usually enjoy, was a bit off. It wasn't a bad movie. As movies go, it was relatively clean as far as language and sexual situations are concerned. It just didn't live up to the expectations. But, no doubt, it will end up in our collection once its been released on DVD.

Hey Jen,
Thanks for the visit! I enjoyed reading back through your posts and am happy to add it to my blogroll :)

I really enjoyed the first National Treasure--sort of fills the Indiana Jones void(but not for long) :) I'll be sure to wait on this one until it's released on DVD.
