    Producer’s Synopsis: “All his life, Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage) has been searching for a treasure no one believed existed: amassed through the ages, moved across continents, to become the greatest treasure the world has ever known. Hidden by our Founding Fathers, they left clues to the Treasure’s location right before our eyes… from our nation’s birthplace, to the nation’s capitol, to clues buried within the symbols on the dollar bill. In a race against time, Gates must elude the FBI, stay one step ahead of his ruthless adversary (Sean Bean), decipher the remaining clues and unlock the 2000 year-old mystery behind our greatest national treasure.”

    There is NO doubt that “National Treasure” is a fun, clean action adventure for the entire family. It is a wonderful offering for those that enjoy high wire suspense with an Indiana Jones type flavor.

    “National Treasure” is a great historical trip. Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage) takes us on a journey through several historical monuments. It is a whirlwind tour of Boston, Washington, D.C. and, of course, Philadelphia. Our journey begins in an attic above a Washington, D.C. residence. The year is 1974, and Ben’s grandfather Jonathan Adams Gates (Christopher Plummer) catches Ben reading a book about a family legend. Our sage begins to pass on the story of the Freemasons and their tireless pursuit to preserve historical treasures. The treasure is well hidden, and to find it you must solve some very difficult clues.

    Ben’s father (John Voit) warns Ben that pursuit of the treasure is a waste of life. The story cuts to 30 years later, and the next important clue is found encased in a 200-year-old ship that frozen in the Antarctic. Ben’s partners soon turn the tables and steal the next clue. Mr. Gates and his whimsical friend Riley Poole (Justin Bartha) are now in a race to examine the Declaration of the Independence.

    Director, Jon Turteltaub (“Cool Runnings,” “While You Were Sleeping”) handles this thrill-a-minute plot with tremendous ease. Our duo would not be complete without a female who is caught in the middle. Abigail Chase (Diane Kruger) is the director of the National Archives. Her character is drawn in when the Declaration is stolen. There are wonderful chases and the good guys always seem to be one step ahead of the bad guys. The cliffhanger suspense is similar to the classic Republic chapter serials.

    There are some exchanges of gunfire, but the villains usually leave our heroes to live through a perilous circumstance. Yes, as you can imagine, this movie is VERY well acted. The plot is predictable, but VERY enjoyable. There is almost NO language and absolutely NO sex.

    There is a fly in the cinematic plot ointment. I know there are some that feel they can watch a Harry Potter adventure and dismiss the strong occult overtones. This is after all the “Buffy” generation. You still cannot ignore well-crafted agendas. I know that John Travolta tried to pay tribute to Scientology, when he made the movie “Battlefield Earth.” “National Treasure” provides a strong platform of acceptance for the organization known as the Freemasons.

    The Freemasons is a secret, anti-Christian group with roots that go deep into the occult. Many Masonic oaths are alliances to pagan gods. The organization is a form of morality and ethical standards veiled in secrecy. It is difficult to argue with a group that promotes unselfishness, tolerance, brotherly love and other acceptable virtues. This group has various level or degrees of advancement. It is all an attempt to promote an unholy trinity that is built upon the so called lost name of God.

    National Treasure, which looked at first glance like one of those big-dumb-loud movies upon which Bruckheimer built his kingdom. It contains all the requisite elements: a hide-and-seek video-game plot, a hackneyed love affair between polar opposites, a smart-ass sidekick, a wealthy villain, a snarky father figure (in this case, an actual snarky father, played by Jon Voight) and, once more without feeling, Nicolas Cage as the hero. But with its social-studies story line, having to do with centuries' worth of riches hidden by the Freemasons during the Revolutionary War, and a pedestrian director behind the camera (Jon Turteltaub, maker of The Kid and 3 Ninjas), National Treasure isn't any fun at all, which is ultimately the most damning thing you can say about a Bruckheimer movie. It provides not a second of celluloid to be appreciated as a guilty pleasure, not a single moment of big-dumb-laugh-out-loud enjoyment. It's not cheesy or crass, not dopey or even dumb-ass, just cold and empty and distant and familiar to the point of feeling fetid. It may, however, be the most honest movie Bruckheimer's ever made: The clues to the film's puzzle lie in the illustrations on the back of dollar bills, thus making it the first movie not only based on a stoner's monologue from Dazed and Confused, but also the sole Bruckheimer movie in which money is used to make more money.

    Watching it is akin to sitting next to someone else hogging the PlayStation controller as he steers a character through a maze in search of clues that lead only to more clues that finally land in a dreary dead end. National Treasure (which is surely the most ironic title of the year) plays like a Da Vinci Code knock-off; readers of that beloved best seller will perk up at references to the Knights Templar, if nothing else. It's also a retrofitted redo of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, with Voight and Cage doing iffy riffs on dialogue traded by Sean Connery and Harrison Ford.

    Cage, now wholly bereft of charisma or charm or...what's the word?... usefulness, plays Benjamin Franklin Gates, a cross between Indiana Jones and Stanley Goodspeed, his nerdy scientist-action hero character from The Rock, Cage's first film with Bruckheimer. (This marks his fourth collaboration with the producer, after the idiotic Con Air and boorish Gone in Sixty Seconds.) Gates comes from a long line of treasure hunters (treasure protectors, actually, but whatever) charged with locating and keeping safe a bounty that dates back to the building of the pyramids, the first Crusades and the Revolutionary War, all seen in flashbacks that must have cost a fortune to produce but linger on the screen for mere seconds. (They have the feel of stock footage, too, like outtakes from historical epics Bruckheimer was going to make but lost interest in halfway through shooting.) Benjamin's grandfather (Christopher Plummer) and father wasted their lives searching for the loot, and it's up to Benjamin to redeem the family name--by, in this case, stealing the Declaration of Independence, which has on its back an invisible map revealed only when it's doused in lemon juice, warmed with a hair dryer and viewed through 3D glasses Benjamin Franklin left in a brick in a wall outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia.
