Even if you can suspend ALL disbelief, this one is still over the top. Anyone associated with this film who says \"I did it because I loved the script\" must not get to read many scripts.

Not as good as the first one in my opinion, but I enjoyed it as a nice way to get away for a couple of hours. Good set of cast.

If you liked the first movie, you will probably like this one as well.

I thought the pacing was better in the first, as this one seems to jump very quickly from clue to clue, like a team on the Amazing Race in fast-forward, not slowing down to appreciate what they're doing at the time (or let the audience see any plot holes being used as devices, more likely).

I think the aspect that I had the hardest time with was Ed Harris' character. His motivations seemed to shift without reason, as if some pivotal scenes were left on the editing room floor. Seeing Helen Mirren in an action movie was definitely interesting, and the connections to the Queen of England were entertaining, given her involvement. Bruce Greenwood as the President was pretty good, too.

This is a popcorn movie throughout. No winning performances, no great story, and it won't really stick with you after you've left the theater. But it was entertaining while it happened, and I expected no more from it.

Not quite as good as the first, but still an enjoyable film. If you liked the first, you'll enjoy this one.

I didn't care much about the first movie. (If you like to read my review of the first movie, you can go over to read it. I'll wait) The second "National Treasure " is better than the first and a lot smarter too. Nicholas Cage is out to find out who framed his great-great grandfather for taking part in the assassination of President Abe Lincoln. This movie is fun to watch and kids will get themselves intrested in history.

The movie was alot like the first one, with "adventure." It was also very predictable! It was a good movie, no doubt that, but it's not worth the price of admission!

Good movie. If you liked the first movie, you'll like this one. All the characters are back, and the feel and tone of the movie is the same. It might move a bit too quick with the plot, but it doesn't hurt the movie that much.

kind of silly, but fun.

It is not nearly as good as the first one. If I had not seen it at matinee price I would have been angry because it is not worth full price.

It's in a genre similar to the "Indiana Jones" type of action-adventure. Definately not to the same degree as the Jones movies, it's a lot tamer. If you like action and don't over analyse the plot to much its a very entertaining movie!

This was a good movie, I think I would almost wait until rental, but it was a good movie to see with our 12 year old, not too many of those around. Not as good as the first one.
