For what looks like a bad summer movie cast-aside, there was far more plot then I could give a Bruckheimer film credit for. Nic Cage even looked like he was enjoying himself instead of just collecting a paycheck like with his past few films. Someone really put a good effort in this film. I'd almost compare it to THE GOONIES, but for a slightly more mature audience. Promote this thread!

How mature? My 9 year old wants to see it, and if it gets me out of seeing Polar Express, I'm all for it.

Don't be such a Scrooge. The bell probably doesn't ring for you anymore, either.

I can't remember why, though. I think the new Tim Allen Christmas flick might be the one to check out. I was thinking about going to see National Treasure until I saw Cage on Letterman. He was dressed in all leather with a white tank top. I didn't need to see that before I went to bed.

AIM: # 5 Posted on 22.11.04 1304.11 Reposted on: 22.11.11 1305.30 National Treasure was pretty good for an action flick, but the critics were right- some parts are just way too implausible, in terms of how he escapes situations.

My 9 year old wants to see it, and if it gets me out of seeing Polar Express, I'm all for it. I only meant more mature, in that there was more plot to keep up with. There wasn't any over blown violence or language or anything like that. In fact, I don't even recall any harsh language or blood in the whole film. This was probably the best action film I've seen for a younger audience in a long time.

It didn't offend me and I had a good time. Here's my official review, courtesy of Hybrid Magazine: http://www.hybridmagazine.com/films/1104/national-treasure.shtml

I find the trailers for it pretty disturbing. If I was a kid and I woke up with that freakish mannequin-lookin' thing telling me to get on a big weird train, I'd run for the hills.
