National Treasure

Did you read the bestseller The Da Vinci Code and think, That will be a great movie some day? Well, producer Jerry Bruckheimer has beaten director Ron Howard to the punch. The new smash hit National Treasure is that movie!

Though I enjoyed it, I was less than satisfied by the film as an entertainment. Three complaints:

1.Often quirky actor Nicolas Cage seemed somewhat restrained in his performance.

2.The usual level of mayhem expected in a Jerry Bruckheimer film (e.g. Con Air) seemed subdued by the Disney influence. The villain, played by excellent British actor Sean Bean, was no Cyrus the Virus.

3.And the overall long running time contributed to a feeling of boredom at times.

Having said the above, I must say that actress Diane Kruger is gorgeous. I could watch her all night.
