Benjamin Gates is a third generation treasure hunter. All his life he has been searching for a treasure no one believed existed. Gates’ life-long journey leads him to the last place anyone thought to look: a map hidden on the back of the Declaration of Independence. But what he thought was the final clue is only the beginning.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure - "National Treasure" is sort of like the "Indiana Jones" movies but with less action. Like "Indiana Jones" it's suspenseful and fun with quite a bit of humor. The pace is quick and the story is engaging as all the clues to the treasure being figured out. And it's believable for the most part anyway. I did count five instances where what happened was extremely convenient to the storyline even though it was highly improbable.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average ...National Treasure could be headed for box office gold. It's too bad it's missing the gems that make movies worthwhile: intelligence, character development, and a legitimate storyline. National Treasure deserves to be buried.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average 'National Treasure' is so silly that the Monty Python version could use the same screenplay, line for line.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The brilliant Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage) is a third generation treasure hunter. All his life, Gates has been searching for a treasure no one believed existed: amassed through the ages, moved across continents, to become the greatest treasure the world has ever known. Hidden by our Founding Fathers, they left clues to the Treasure's location right before our eyes … from our nation's birthplace, to the nation's capitol, to clues buried within the symbols on the dollar bill.

Gates' life-long journey leads him to the last place anyone thought to look: a map hidden on the back of the Declaration of Independence.

But what he thought was the final clue is only the beginning.

Gates realizes in order to protect the world's greatest treasure, he must now do the unthinkable: steal the most revered, best guarded document in American history before it falls into the wrong hands.

In a race against time, Gates must elude the authorities, stay one step ahead of his ruthless adversary (Sean Bean), decipher the remaining clues and unlock the 2000 year-old mystery behind our greatest national treasure.
