This was a big hit?
No matter what I might think of some movies it usually seems to me that
hit movies are well made.....there is a reason the movies were a hit.
Sorry but try as much as I can this movie is a mystery to me....was
nothing else released at the same time? and the steamroller effect of
it starting a hit just carried it along? I watched it with an open
mind,well up for some escapist fun but apart from a couple of goodish
jokes and the actors giving it their best,not much to commend this.
It's such a mix'n match of ideas looted from so many other movies,that
maybe it deserves some sort of award. On a yawn scale of one to ten
this is flying high and I cannot believe even a ten year old would get
excited about this. But then 300 million plus....what do I know?.

very cool movie.
schalala watch You're A Good Sport, Charlie Brown movie
Nicolas Cage - cool like always! I loved this movie!.
darko98 watch Finding Forrester movie
hiamnash watch The Answer Man Aka Arlen Faber movie
good movie .
With a good balance of action and wit, I found National treasure very interesting. It was something I felt like I wanted to re-watch just to learn as much as I could about all the secrets and codes, I felt like I was solving along with them. Also, Riley Poole is an absolute cutie! XD.
Pretty good for a Disney movie. .
Not a bad movie. I enjoyed the twists it took especially near the end..
Gimme a break!!!!
National Treasure is about as over-rated and over-hyped as they come.
Nicholas Cage is in no way a believable action hero, and this film is
no "Indiana Jones". People who have compared this movie to the Indian
Jones classic trilogy have seriously fallen off their rocker.
I can't really figure out what kind of target audience this film was
shooting for. Maybe the pre-teen audience will like it, but I found it
to be absolutely ludicrous. I also can't imagine adults or young adults
to find this to be that great of a film. Simply put: it's just OK at
National Treasure is unimagined and uninspired, borrowing what it does
have from "The Da Vinci Code". I would recommend waiting for that movie
to be released in 2006, and passing on this nonsense.
The whole idea of being able to so easily steal the Declaration of
Independence and run around all over Washington DC and Philadelphia
with it (while never damaging it once), while fighting the "bad guys"
and experiencing what is supposed to be "non-stop action" is absurd. I
particularly loved the scene with the Declaration folded in its tube
laying in the middle of a busy road while cars whiz by it without
damaging it. Oh brother!
Reminded me of that episode of the "Brady Bunch" where they go to the
amusement park and Mr. Brady loses his architectural plans. Except,
that episode of the Brady Bunch was much better than this whole film!
The idea of such huge treasure that nobody believes exists being buried
within a secret ruin of the US is outlandish. Literally, there are
thousand of undiscovered "priceless" items in this treasure trove. Yeah
Even worse, the speed and accuracy of which Cage finds and figures out
what are supposed to be "tough" clues to these ancient riddles are
pre-posterous!!! Oh.. the humanity!
The performances by Cage, Voight, and the other actors in "National
Treasure" are as stiff ,wooden, and flat as they come. However, when
you're working with such lousy dialogue, it's hard to fault the actor's
100% for that.
National Treasure is an OK film to see once. I can't recommend it
beyond that and would definitely NOT purchase this over the top,
outlandish scavenger hunt of a mess.
Rent it if you must see it first........
