Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage) is a third generation treasure hunter. All his life, Gates has been searching for a treasure no one believed existed: a vast horde amassed through the ages, moved across continents, to become the greatest treasure the world has ever known.
The treasure was eventually hidden by America's founding fathers, but they left a map to its location right before everyone's eyes: from the historical monuments of America's capitol, to the clues hidden in the symbols on the dollar bill. Gates' life-long journey leads him to the last place anyone thought to look: a map hidden on the back of the Declaration of Independence.
But what he thought was the final clue is only the beginning.
Gates realizes in order to protect the world's greatest treasure, he must now do the unthinkable: steal the most revered document in American history before it falls into the wrong hands.
What the critics are saying:
"It has no ambition, little sense and false sentiment, but it does have velocity, high spirits and scale."- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle"People run. Things blow up. Sometimes, just to add another layer of nuance, people run away as things blow up."- Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger"Nicolas Cage used to give performances that were a pleasure to watch ("Moonstruck"), if not outright astonishing ("Leaving Las Vegas"). But in "National Treasure," he's on cruise control..."- Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
