National Treasure

I promised I would write more about this movie, so here I am.

After finishing seeing the sequel, my mom decided on the way home that we had to watch the first one. Knowing that this would probably happen, I had brought my copy along.

This one deals with a family legend handed down over the decades. What follows is a fun quest that involves history dating back to colonial times, one of my favorite eras. The story has many holes, but taken as a popcorn flick, it hits the right notes.   I also enjoyed seeing how the movie created puzzles out of known pieces of history.  If anything, I hope this inspires others to learn a little more about our founding.

The DVD has the usual extras with nothing really standing out.

My advice: This one is the better of the two. It is not a bad way to spend a couple of hours.
