Product Description

From producer Jerry Bruckheimer (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN TRILOGY) and director Jon Turteltaub (Phenomenon) comes the ultimate quest for NATIONAL TREASURE. Academy Award(R) winner Nicolas Cage (Best Actor, LEAVING LAS VEGAS, 1995) stars in this thrilling adventure that's more exciting than ever on Disney Blu-ray Disc. Obsessed since childhood with finding the legendary Knights Templar treasure, Benjamin Franklin Gates (Cage) tries to decipher ancient riddles that will lead him to it. Now, in a race against time, Gates discovers he must steal the Declaration of Independence to prevent this landmark document -- and a key clue to the mysterious treasure -- from falling into the hands of a ruthless enemy (Sean Bean, THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy)! Hang on tight and plunge headlong into heart-pounding chases and explosive special effects presented in the jaw-dropping clarity of high definition with spectacularly enhanced audio quality. Get closer to the edge of your seat and experience this high-stakes crime caper as never before with Disney Blu-ray -- Magic in High Definition.

Like a Hardy Boys mystery on steroids, National Treasure offers popcorn thrills and enough boyish charm to overcome its rampant silliness. Although it was roundly criticized as a poor man's rip-off of Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Da Vinci Code, it's entertaining on its own ludicrous terms, and Nicolas Cage proves once again that one actor's infectious enthusiasm can compensate for a multitude of movie sins. The contrived plot involves Cage's present-day quest for the ancient treasure of the Knights Templar, kept secret through the ages by Freemasons past and present. Finding the treasure requires the theft of the Declaration of Independence (there are crucial treasure clues on the back, of course!), so you can add "caper comedy" to this Jerry Bruckheimer production's multi-genre appeal. Nobody will ever accuse director Jon Turtletaub of artistic ambition, but you've got to admit he serves up an enjoyable dose of PG-rated entertainment, full of musty clues, skeletons, deep tunnels, and harmless adventure in the old-school tradition. It's a load of hokum, but it's fun hokum, and that makes all the difference. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Here is your first clue: "National Treasure" is to "(fill in the blank)" as "Jezebel" is to "Gone With the Wind."
While the millions of book readers wondering who was going to play Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) and Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou) in Ron Howard's next movie did not approach the passionate debate over who should play Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara, there is no doubt that "National Treasure" is an attempt to capitalize on the great interest in a best-selling novel about unraveling arcane clues left by famous people in the same way that "Jezebel" got to the silver screen with a movie about the ante-bellum South before "GWTW." The question is whether "National Treasure" is just an appetizer to whet our appetite for next year's version of Dan Brown's novel or if this will turn our stomach to the whole idea of films where only the hero can decipher the clues and solve the mystery.
The key is not to take this film seriously because it does not. After all, there is not a secret society that is dodging the steps of Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicholas Cage), but a villain, Ian Howe (Sean Bean) who wants the treasure because it is worth billions of dollars. Yes, there is a pretty blonde with a foreign accent (Diane Kruger) to provide informative, help and a love interest for the hero, but there is also a nerd (Justin Bartha) for comic relief and hard science.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging film is a treasure! June 20 2010
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
National Treasure(released Nov/04)is an exceptionally engaging film which combines many elements of cyrptology,archeology,symbology,legends and half truths regarding the Masons and Knights Templar and all shaken and stirred into an Indiana Jones "glass".It contains a good solid cast of actors and coupled with Jon Turteltaub's taught directing skills this film is a clear winner.
The story involves one Ben Gates(Nick Cage)whose family has been guarding a passed down secret of a huge long lost treasure for generations.Finally getting a financial backer one Ian Howe(Sean Bean),they travel to the Arctic to uncover a long lost ship which contains a clue.The clue tells Ben the next important piece of the puzzle lies on the back of the Declaration of Independence.Howe tells him that he can obtain the document and this is the moment Ben realizes he has hooked up with the wrong people.A skirmish ensues and the ship blows up leaving Ben and a friend stranded,having to walk to the nearest settlement to be rescued.
Back in New York Ben visits several law enforcement agencies in an effort to alert them of what is coming.No one believes him and he decides in order to protect the valuable document he will steal it himself.Amazingly this is what he does with both the law and Howe on his tail.Mixed up in this is the curator of the the National Archives in Washington Dr.Chase(Diane Kruger).She inadvertently has to go on the run with Ben and they end up at the home of his father Patrick(Jon Voight),who has been a skeptic of the entire legend all his life.Ben finds his code and it makes a now skeptical believer out of Dr Chase also.When his father discovers what his son really has he is beside himself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Standard Dec 12 2008
Format:DVD
An Indiana Jones wannabe, National Treasure offers an intriguing plot that both educates and entertains.

This modern-day adventure follows Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage), as he searches for clues that will reveal the whereabouts of a fantastic treasure hidden by the Founding Fathers two centuries ago. Gates believes one such clue can be found on the back of the Declaration of Independence but, mocked by the academic community, he is refused permission to examine it. When he learns that his double-crossing associate plans to steal the document, Gates must stay one step ahead. Along the way, he is aided by his nerdy sidekick Riley (Justin Bartha), a reluctant historian (Diane Kruger), and his sceptical and disillusioned father (Jon Voight).

Cage, however, is miscast; he is far too intense an actor to bring the audience into the fun, and he lacks the charm of Harrison Ford. Kruger, too, suggests no charisma; as in Troy, she is pretty, and likeable, but does not leave a lasting impression. Both are overshadowed by the refreshing Bartha who, as comic relief, steals the show. Unfortunately, Sean Bean as the villain and Harvey Keitel as an FBI agent are given characters who are never fleshed out.

Seemingly, the trio of writers were more concerned with fashioning a plausible story based on American history. In that regard, they succeeded; the script is extremely clever and well-planned...so well-planned, in fact, that there is no room for any twists. Each riddle is deciphered all too easily and points directly to the next. Thus, there is little magic as the story progresses.
