National Treasure: Book of Secrets

I’ve been excited for this movie for an extremely long time, I liked the first one a lot. I found it to be creative and fun, I don’t even Nicholas Cage and I liked the first. With the second one though, I am very sad to report that I was extremely disappointed. The sequel lacked in the creativity and entertainment of the first and didn’t make up for it anywhere. The whole movie was just Nicholas Cage trying to be funny and cool when he’s not either of those things and him having his friend hack into stuff. No cool codes or riddles to figure out. Anytime the film was even a bit creative, it was just basically copying off of the first film. The thing that really bugged me about this movie was the fact that in the first one, Gage said to his friend Riley at the end of the movie,”the next time we find a treasure that revolutionize’s history, you can make the call on finder’s fee”, well guess what, apparently the writers of the second one watched the first one just enough to copy off of it, but fell asleep at the end, because that comment was never touched back on. They also tried to end it in the same way they ended the second pirates so you’d get excited for the third movie. I was excited for the third pirates and I was happy with the result of that serias, but I’m not excited for National Treasure 3, and no matter how good the third is, I can’t be happy with the serias because it has this travesty in it.   Grade: D+
