It's impossible to not draw comparisons to the much-loved Indiana Jones series when reviewing this. Rolling out every cliché, recycled clue and predictable plot hook in the book, Disney gleefully stamps all over the already waning credibility of the tired phrase "family entertainment" with this hit-and-miss action adventure, following the exploits of the wise-cracking (naturally) historian Ben Gates as he trawls across America, searching for a treasure that apparently runs in the family. It appears to steal ideas and lines from the above-mentioned Indiana Jones series like a fat kid steals pies, its plot is completely ridiculous and the quest for the treasure becomes gradually more and more convoluted as things progress. And you know what? It's actually still quite a lot of fun. While it's not going to win any awards for originality, it's salvaged from a one-way trip to Disney Hell (where High School Musical NEVER goes straight to DVD) by a crackling script peppered with some knowingly smart lines and a handful of explosive set pieces (a chase through the city is a standout moment). However, the scenes are stolen from even the big-budget effects by Brit Sean Bean doing what he does best as a typically very, very British villain hell-bent on getting his hands on the treasure before the all-American hero Ben Gates (probably all in time for those all-important tea breaks). Elsewhere, however, the acting leaves something to be desired- Diane Kruger is dismally wooden, weak and frequently irritating as the blonde “historian” (and I use the term loosely) who appears to serve as nothing more than eye-candy to keep the impatient dads in the audience amused for the remainder of the two hour film, while leaving the carcass of feminism to the vultures. Nicholas Cage is on good form as Gates, although lacks the charisma of Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones and Justin Bartha gives a charming performance of the computer whiz friend of Cage’s impossibly macho hero. The locations provide an engaging backdrop to the nonsensical string of action sequences, and accompanied by a score that flits between sweeping, orchestral pieces and pounding drum and bass tracks, it’s easy enough to immerse yourself in National Treasure’s charmed world where the bad guys get their comeuppance and the good guys get the treasure and the girl. That last sentence pretty much sums up the storyline for two hours of film. But the story’s not why you want to watch this, is it?

I didnt know what to expect from this film but was pleasantly supprised. It's not indiana jones but it is enjoyable and worth watching.
