A man has only one life time. But history can remember you forever. -Mitch Wilkinsin
- Nicolas Cage as Ben Gates
- Justin Bartha as Riley Poole
- Diane Kruger as Abigail Chase
- Jon Voight as Patrick Gates
- Helen Mirren as Professor Emily Appleton
- Ed Harris as Mitch Wilkinsin
- Harvey Keitel as Agent Sadusky
- Bruce Greenwood as The President
There were great performances by everyone involved but Helen Mirren’s role as Ben’s mom was particularly noteworthy. The chemistry between herself and Jon Voight put Krugers and Cages to shame. Ed Harris playing the bad guy is always fun and Bruce Greenwood as the President was an excellent interpretation. The character’s and actor’s that played them were outstanding.
Ratings And Suggestions
National Treasure: Book Of Secrets felt like it was quickly rushed together so the filmmakers could capitalize on a sequel so the parallel stories involving the cities of lost gold from Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull and itself would not be released simultaneously. While Book of Secrets beat Indy 4 to the release date, Indy 4 was compiled together in an elegant, love taken fashion whereas Book Of Secrets was not. It was stamped and mailed before it was even finished. It suffers the worst kind of fate of mediocrity in it’s ability to have been a much better movie if not rushed. Nonetheless, it was delivered as a mundane film that by it’s finale the outcome was no longer even relevant to me. I simply wanted to see the end credits. Book Of Secrets receives 1.5 out of 4 Stars.
