"National Treasure: Book
Action/Adventure, Thriller and Sequel. Rated PG.
Nicholas Cage is back
on the hunt for puzzles and treasure once again as scholar-adventurer
in Benjamin Gates in National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
Returning is Jon Voight as Gates' father, Patrick; Diane Kruger
as ex-girlfriend Abigail Chase; Justin Bartha as assistant Riley
Poole, and Harvey Keitel as FBI Agent Peter Sadusky. Joining the
adventure is Helen Mirren as Gates' mother, Emily Appleton.
This time, Gates' latest mission involves the assassination of
President Abraham Lincoln at the end of the Civil War, where evidence
proclaims that Gates' great-great-grandfather (Joel Gretsch) was
involved in Lincoln's murder. Refusing to believe that his ancestor
both a murderer and a traitor to America, Gates sets out to prove
his innocence, leading him and his team from Europe to Her Majesty
in London to the White House to Virginia, where the Book of Secrets
handed down from President to President is revealed.
Book of Secrets is a family affair because it continues
to explore more into the Gates family. It is good to see Voight
and Kruger to take more active roles in this sequel rather than
sit on the sideline like the original. The chemistry they have
with Cage and Mirren are wonderful -- especially between Voight
and Mirren, who truly acts like old, bickering, estranged former
spouses. Bartha does have perfect timing as both comic relief
and sidekick as well as opportunist to Cage's Indiana Jones-like
Like the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, the film has
something and everything for the whole family.

Treasure: Book of Secrets, now playing in theatres.
