Summary: When a missing page from the diary of John Wilkes Booth surfaces, Ben's great-great grandfather is suddenly implicated as a key conspirator in Abraham Lincoln's death. Determined to prove his ancestor's innocence, Ben follows an international chain of clues that takes him on a chase from Paris to London and ultimately back to America. This journey leads Ben and his crew not only to surprising revelations, but also to the trail of the world's most treasured secrets. (Walt Disney Pictures)
Entertaining, funny. Better than the first one, I think. A little bit of Tomb Raider, a little bit of Indiana Jones, a little bit of The Da Vinci Code. Yet not as good as Indiana movies and not as good as Tomb Raider games.
Much worse than the first film--it packs in a few amusing sequences but the tone of this film and its characters are all over the place. I normally like Ed Harris but even he can't wrap his character around the poor writing.
Oh yeah...it had a sequel. Well, despite some fun moments that I can remember, it certainly doesn't hold up to the standards the first one "set". Nick Cage is great, because he's Nick Cage. Everything else about the movie feels just too much like the first one. They basically just changed the villain and rehashed the entire plot of the first movie taking out the Declaration of Independence theft and replacing it with kidnapping the President.
Not a bad film at all....like a cheap mans Indiana Jones with an added history lesson! My problem is....these hidden areas last hundreds of years but start to fall apart just after they are discovered? Convenient!
Too many plot holes, like WHY THE HELL DIDN'T WILKINSON GO BACK UP THE WAY THEY ALL CAME IN? I mean seriously, he didn't have to die. He didn't need to have an attack of conscience and sacrifice himself. Totally lame.
It's so bad, but I couldn't stop laughing at some of it, so it gets bonus points for that. My favourite bit was when Cage wanted to take a photo of a piece of wood, so he deliberately drives through a red light and then hacks into the police database and gets the CCTV image whilst still in the car. Yes, really. Just watch it with friends and take the piss out of each ridiculous thing as it happens - it's the only way you can tolerate something like this.
I did like the first one, but this isn't so good. The villain hops between being bad and good merrily, and his entire elaborate plot could have been handled by saying "Hey Nic Cage, wanna help me find the city of gold?"
