National Treasure: Book of Secrets


To start off Christmas Weekend, my parents, sister and I went to a matinee of “National Treasure: Book of Secrets”  also known as “National Treasure II”.  You can view the movie’s official website here.  The main characters include Ben Gates,  his dad Patrick Gates and the comedy of techie Riley Poole.   Also Ben’s sort of girlfriend, Abigail returns as well as FBI Agent Sadusky.  A new addition to the cast is Ben’s mom, Emily Appleton, a college professor who specializes in pre-colonial history.  

In this sequel the Gates Family again has to search for another American treasure to protect the family’s name in history.   The film begins with Ben and Patrick giving a talk at a university.  During the question and answer session, a fellow historian, Mitch Wilkinson, announced that he had a missing page from the diary of John Wilkes-Booth which named Thomas Gates, Ben’s great-great grandfather, as one of the co-conspirators in the assasination of President Abraham Lincoln. 

From there the search is on!  Another series of clues appear and lead Ben, his dad, Riley, Ben’s somewhat estranged girlfriend Abigail and the former Mrs. Gates, Emily Appleton on a wild cross-continental adventure.  The clues even lead them to the President of the United States who holds the answer to one of the clues as well.  This clue is found in the Presidents’ Book of Secret, the source of the title of this movie.

 As always, I do not want to give away the ending of this sequel, but I can tell you that it is an exciting ending to another chapter of Disney’s National Treasure series.  I cannot wait for the third one to come out, I sincerely hope that there is another one in the works at Disney.

 My favorite part, because I am so silly, is when Riley’s convertible gets towed!  That was SO funny!

I gave this movie 5 out of 5 because it never slowed down and always kept me on the edge of my seat!

 Is it worth seeing again? Absolutely!

Until next time,

This is Katie the Critic
