National Treasure Reviews
A joyfully convoluted adventure yarn that moves lickety-split through cliches, plot holes and overall narrative mayhem until the whole unlikely rig screeches to a halt.
Treasure may fall a notch below Pirates of the Caribbean on the pleasureometer, but it does give American history sex appeal and celebrates a guy who relies on brainware rather than gadgets.
Cage invests none of the edge, passion or heart we've come to expect from him in the part. Bean has no decent villainous moments, and the rest of the cast (save for Voight) is forgettable and generic.
