National Treasure: Book of Secrets

Normally sequels are not as good as the original but this one was far from that way. The second one had a few moments of lag but the majority of the movie was high paced fun race across the world on a treasure hunt. They used real locations and real conspiracies to draw you into the movie which were fantastically played out to of course search for a treasure as important as the first find all while trying to clear the family name from being tied to the Lincoln assassination.

While Ben is presenting new information about John Wilkes Booth and the 18 pages missing from Booth’s diary, one man stands up and presents a missing page of John Wilkes Booth’s diary. Thomas Gates, Ben’s great-grandfather, is mentioned in the page. It shows that Ben’s great-grandfather could have been involved with Abraham Lincoln’s murder.

When doing more research, the conspiracy takes Ben, Abigail, and Riley to Buckingham Palace (which they break into). It takes them to a book in the White House (which they break also into) and they even steal a page from the book. But in order to see more from the book, their choice is either get elected president or kidnap the President of the United States.

Which do they choose? It’s obvious. The conspiracy then crosses to Mount Rushmore and they even mention the JFK conspiracy. Can Ben clear his family’s name? Or will his family forever be linked to the murder of Abraham Lincoln?
