National Treasure: Book of Secrets
Source: Catholic News Service
Diverting, though paper-thin adventure sequel in which a treasure hunter (Nicolas Cage), helped by his technologically gifted but hapless partner (Justin Bartha), his estranged parents (Jon Voight and Helen Mirren) and his archivist girlfriend (Diane Kruger), sets out to vindicate an ancestor accused of conspiring in the Lincoln assassination and to find a legendary city of gold while being shadowed by the descendant of a Confederate officer (Ed Harris) who has his own agenda and by an FBI agent (Harvey Keitel) who always seems to be one step behind. Director John Turteltaub's overlong film will not bear much scrutiny, but those willing to go along for the ride will be rewarded with car chases, journeys through underground passages and an alternative version of U.S. history. Some intense action sequences and a couple of bathroom gags. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
