National Treasure - Book of Secrets

I don't usually blog about bad films, but because this has just come out on DVD there is a chance you might be tempted to rent or (worse) purchase it. Don't.

This is an awful movie. The story is predictable. The dialogue is trite. The actors look like they've lost the will to live (Helen Mirren wears an expression that indicates she is composing a 'you're fired' letter to her agent).

That's it. Nothing to see here. Move along...

This was my inflight movie a few weeks back and I have to agree with your review. I find it difficult to watch any movie with Nicholas Cage in, his acting is dreadful. (Bar Matchstick Men and I didn't see Captain Corelli's Mandolin)

Nicolas Cage is an enigma to me... I agree that he was excellent in Matchstick Men, and I thought he was OK in 8mm, and Lord of War... but he's not someone I warm to.

Oh, and re. Captain Corelli's Mandolin, if you do see it, let me know, cos I know he's going crazy looking for it :-)
