Product Description

Product Description

From Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, and Jon Turteltaub, director of PHENOMENON, comes NATIONAL TREASURE. It's the thrilling, edge-of-your-seat adventure starring Academy Award(R) winner Nicolas Cage (1995 Best Actor, LEAVING LAS VEGAS) as Benjamin Franklin Gates. Ever since he was a boy, Gates has been obsessed with finding the legendary Knights Templar Treasure, the greatest fortune known to man. As Gates tries to find and decipher ancient riddles that will lead him to it, he's dogged by a ruthless enemy (Sean Bean, THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy) who wants the riches for himself. Now in a race against time, Gates must steal one of America's most sacred and guarded documents -- the Declaration of Independence -- or let it, and a key clue to the mystery, fall into dangerous hands. Heart-pounding chases, close calls, and the FBI turn Gates's quest into a high-stakes crime caper and the most exciting treasure hunt you've ever experienced.

Amazon.ca

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

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.

Who says history is always boring? Granted, the story of this National Treasure is pure fiction, but its roots are grounded in the history of American Independence, especially the Declaration of Independence and that wily old codger Ben Franklin. As the story goes, a group of Crusaders found this vast treasure in the Holy Land and formed the Knights Templar in order to keep it secret and protected; that mission was taken up in turn by the Freemasons. By the start of the Revolutionary War, Freemasons such as George Washington, Ben Franklin, and other Founding Fathers hid the treasure so that it could not possibly be discovered by the British. They left behind a number of clues as to its existence and location, but these were all but lost - the last surviving Founding Father, unable to meet with and reveal the secret to President Andrew Jackson, passed the first clue along to a servant just before his death. That servant's descendants have spent major portions of their lives looking for a treasure that no one else believes exists - and with no luck whatsoever. Not, that is, until Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage) came along and actually solved the first clue. I guess it' all downhill from here, right? Well, not exactly.

The Declaration of Independence is probably the most heavily-protected document in the entire world - this thing, if I remember correctly, will actually survive a nuclear bomb if it is lowered down into its vault in time. You can't just walk in and ask the nice National Archives folks to please open the case up and let you apply a reagent to it in order to reveal some sort of treasure map on its back. (Gates tries it - it doesn't work. No one will even believe his warning about his newly-acquired archenemy's plans for stealing it.

National Treasure is a typical Jerry Bruckheimer film:
Not much substance, but great to watch.

1. CAST.
Whatever your thoughts are on Nicolas Cage, you can't beat a cast that includes:
Jon Voight, Sean Bean, Harvey Keitel, and Christopher Plummer.
(Oh, all right, Nicolas Cage, Diane Kruger, and Justin Bartha are in it too...)
National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets has Helen Mirren and Ed Harris as well.

Among all the cast, Sean Bean and his villainous sidekicks deserve special notice for stealing the scenes.
Every scene.

2. SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF.
Unfortunately, while National Treasure is a fun and enjoyable ride, it doesn't just NUKE the fridge so much as dump it in the middle of a nuclear holocaust, then bomb it, blast it, napalm it, and open fire on it.
In other words, National Treasure is fun, only if you don't use your brain.

A good scene to illustrate my point would be the scene where both Cage and Bean try to steal the Declaration of Independence.

Bean's crew:
Drill, Drill, Hammer. Door 1 open.
Hammer, Hammer, Power-tool. Door 2 open.
Chain in the fan, Electric Saw, Drill. Crawl through the fan.
Explosion, Drill, Hammer. Wall knocked down.

Cage's crew:
Tappity Tap Tap. Security Systems Down.
Tappity Tappity: Camera's off.
Tap Tap Tap: Password decoded.
Tappity Tappity Tap: Door open.

Please tell me it's not that easy to steal America's most precious document...
...

It also doesn't just require you to SUSPEND your disbelief... It requires you to HANG it. Forever. Then cut it down and bury it in a box. Then burn the box. Then burn the ashes.

3. CONCLUSION.
