        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.

        Ugh. Nicolas Cage stars(?) in this forgettable adventure flick as some guy with a dumb historical name and a thirst for treasure. That should be enough to tell you what this movie is. Overly long, illogical, and a bit too boring, National Treasure is a harmless family film remembered simply because Nicolas Cage is Illuminati. Don't waste your time unless you and the family need something to do.

        The easiest way to describe this movie is as an attempt to make a modern version of Indiana Jones with ridiculous plot and bad cast. However, this one has one of the best twists ever: Sean Bean survives!!!
