This movie rocks! If you liked the first National Treasure then you'll like this one as well. Yes, the critics will tell you that some of the acting and lines are a little forced, and that it's the same formula as the first movie, (but if it anit broke why fix it?), but who cares what dumb critics think, only MY opinion matters, I'm the only one that you come to for movie reviews right?
Right. Well in this film, Benjamin Gates has to defend his family honor, as his great great grandfather is accused of helping plot the assassination of Lincoln. Ed Harris plays the villain, Jeb Wilkenson who coerces Ben Gates into locating a lost city of gold. I think the film is confused as to whether we should loath this villain or not (at least I was). But it all comes out in the wash at the end.
Like the previous film, watching it makes me feel really stupid. Like maybe I should have paid more attention in U.S. History class rather than shooting spit wads at Johnny. These movies make history...exciting!
