After watching The Da Vinci Code, I scrolled through my list of movies-to-watch and eventually chose National Treasure. In addition to having seen it before, I suppose I was in the mood for watching a movie with the same themes as The Da Vinci Code - mystery, chase, and treasure.

Ian Howe (Sean Bean)
Overall, I enjoyed National Treasure more than The Da Vinci Code - largely because National Treasure was an all-around happier and more adventurous movie.

While the movie's story ranged from average to slightly above-average, I enjoyed the various actors and the characters they played.

If you like the idea of watching an adventure movie with a little heist, then National Treasure might be just the movie you're looking for.

I don't remember the beginning of the movie at all. I think I must have walked into the movie when I saw it the first time.
Lol. Knights from the first crusade. (I just watched The Da Vinci Code)
"The secret lies with Charlotte."
Lol. His answer to how a ship would be found way out here.
Hehe, "obsessed" versus "passionate"

Ben's father, Patrick Gates (Jon Voight)
Haha, it's great how their story becomes more and more unbelievable. Ending with "Did Bigfoot take it?"
An HP laptop.
Haha. The FBI didn't open a file.
"Is she pregnant?"
"People don't really talk that way you know?"

Agent Sadusky (Harvey Keitel)
Lol, right. I was wondering why that market looked familiar and finally realized they were in Pennsylvania and I had visited that market.
Haha. "...It never works out for the bait."
That's one way to die...
"I would have dropped you both. Freaks."
How do you put that out once it's lit? Lol.
Ha: 1%
