80/10: National Treasure catches the Indiana Jones lightning in a bottle with its clue-chasing treasure hunt, entertaining cast, and grand adventure
Wednesday, September 28, 2022

National Treasure successfully captures the fun adventure and quality of Indiana Jones while building an exciting universe to explore in future films and shows. Nicolas Cage is at his best teaming with producer Jerry Bruckheimer once again. The duo's collaboration gave us The Rock, Con Air, and Gone in Sixty Seconds, with National Treasure outdoing them all at the box office! This fast-paced family-friendly adventure film travels the globe hunting for clues and uncovering new mysteries. The witty dialogue and funny moments keep the movie lighthearted, contrasting the dangers and peril the characters constantly face. National Treasure is a nostalgic and entertaining film with Nicolas Cage at his best, a fantastic supporting cast, and an exciting globe-trotting treasure hunt that the whole family can enjoy

_**Modern "Raiders of the Lost Ark" in America**_ If you can imagine a "Raiders of the Lost Ark"-type story taking place in modern America, you'd have a fairly good idea of what "National Treasure" is like. Nicolas Cage plays the Indiana Jones-type treasure hunter, Benjamin Franklin Gates, accompanied by his partner (Justin Bartha) and romantic interest (Diane Kruger), the latter a historical document scholar who gets dragged into the wild proceedings. THE PLOT: Gates feels he has no choice but to audaciously steal the Declaration of Independence to save it from his nemesis (Sean Bean). The document has an invisible clue on its flip side, which supposedly leads to a vast, coveted 'national treasure.' Can Gates successfully swipe the document, elude the Feds, and ultimately find the ancient fortune before his murderous, greedy rival? And can he simultaneously "get the babe" as well? "National Treasure" put a big grin on my face throughout its entire runtime. Like...

Maybe the real National Treasure...

Maybe the real National Treasure was this movie we watched along the way. Okay so I didn't **love** _National Treasure_, but it 100% is what it's supposed to be. I never watched it as a kid, this was literally the first time I've ever seen more than about 5 minutes of it, so I don't have the nostalgia thing that a lot of people do, but I do think I'll watch it again. And, even though I didn't much like the sequel, I think I'd still definitely try out a 3rd _National Treasure_ if it ever got made. _Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._

Seen this one many times...

Seen this one many times over the years and still a lot of fun. Solid adventure-comedy with Nicolas Cage in his element with this sort of material. Diane Krueger's performance was a bit iffy at times but she had some okay scenes and never can go wrong with Sean Bean playing the villain, though the character is made out to be smart when all he does is some online searches and stealing from others. **3.75/5**
