National Treasure: Book of Secrets, A Must See!

Today, Hui-chen and I went to see the new movie National Treasure: Book of Secrets.  I’m a huge fan of Nicolas Cage, and we both saw the last National Treasure film in the theater.  While most sequels leave a lot to be desired, this movie packs even more action than the original.  With a believable performance by Bruce Greenwood as the President of the United States (except that Mr. Greenwood is too smart to actually be a President of the US), and the returning character played by Harvey Keitel, (in fact all the old characters are there, except the bad guy, this time played by Ed Harris) this movie is actually better than the original.  Add the amazingly always-hot-not-matter-how-old-she-gets, Hellen Mirren, and you have dynamic, kick-ass cast!

Plus, they gave us this way-cool pouch with chocolate money:

Go see this movie!

  1. cfimages » i have come to appreciate his later work, Craig. what i like about him is that he can portray a raving lunatic or a genius with equal believability. i was thinking though, that with the current person holding the office of President, that someone like Chevy Chase might have been a better choice for the character. Bruce Greenwood is just too good.

  2. sqjtaipei » i think you’ll enjoy it. it’s not just another sequel that they made to cash in on the success of the first one. this movie stands alone. of course it’s better if you’ve seen the first one already, but it’s not a requirement. let me know what you think!
