Eclectic Rating: stars
This was an exciting, fun film. Nicholas Cage plays a member of a ridiculed family of conspiracy theorists, claiming he knows of clues left by the Free Masons that lead to a grand treasure of the Knights Templar. Little do the disbelievers know, he is right.
The characters' deliveries are a little thin at times, but the film makes up for it with fast paced action, humor, and edge of your seat suspense.
We're taken on an adventure in which Cage must steal the Declaration of Independence to protect it and to reveal an invisible clue on the back. One clue leads to another reveaeling more about the Free Masons, the various historic members, and their contributions to the concealment of this hidden treasure.
Love blooms, however weakly, between Cage and the leading lady, but the movie is worth the rental in my opinion. Well done acting, special effects and an entertaining story line. National Treasure is a fun adventure for the whole family.
