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.
