National Treasure (2004)
« on: July 17, 2012, 10:22:58 pm »

I've put off watching National Treasure for years. But I decided that I just wanted to watch a mindless popcorn flick that was more about spectacle and less about "acting" or witty dialogue. So, where to turn? A Nicolas Cage film of course. You know what you're gonna get with him and what type of movie it's gonna be. So, did this meet my expectations? Nope. I wasn't expecting much, but I was expecting more than what we get with this movie. There is a lot of jumping through hoops to uncover each new clue. But by the end, it just wasn't important anymore. The ending was pretty uneventful for me. I was expecting something majectic and it just didn't deliver on that promise.

The movie isn't bad, but it's nothing I will ever watch again. I would say this is a Rent, but it's gotta be when you just want to check your brain at the door. I don't know the history of National Treasure, but when the movie first came on my radar back in 2004, I got the feeling that this movie existed because of a particular scene at the end of The Rock when he found the top secret film and he ask if she want to know "who really killed JFK"? It got the biggest laugh in the theater and sparked everyone's imagination of what the sequel would be like in The Rock 2.

Yea, total fluff. I think it did spark some talk about some of the clues that could actually possible exist, but this was probably more due to books like The Da Vinci Code.

I really don't remember much. I might watch it if, I ran across it channel surfing.

I've been meaning to pull The Da Vinci Code from the Library as I have yet to see it.
