Is there really a treasure map on the back of the Declaration of Independence or a buried treasure under the trinity church in New York City? Of course there’s not but this movie just might have you asking those very questions. "National Treasure" and "National Treasure 2" are movies that basically have you going on a treasure hunt through the entire thing, but I’m definitely not complaining I love these movies. I also love history so it’s definitely a win for me. Nicholas Cage isn’t that bad in it either as Benjamin Gates. His family, you could say, is well known for their theory on the founding father, the freemasons and this once in a life time treasure, though it really wasn’t because there is a second movie. The first movie takes Ben and his two friends on a hunt riddled with clues. He ends up stealing the Declaration of Independence because there’s a map on the back of it, now everyone who’s seen this movie always jokingly says hey is there a map on the back of the declaration, there’s not but it’s just something fun. His treasure trail also takes him through Philadelphia, independence hall, the liberty bell and then finally to NYC. What happens when he finds this treasure, well just follow the clues and watch the movie to find out.
Now, the second movie, well it all starts when Ben's family are called traitors during the revolutionary war. Setting out to prove its not true, his journey takes him to the resolute desks both in Buckingham Palace and then to The White House, as well to the so called presidents secret book, then finally to Mount Rushmore and the city of gold that apparently lies beneath. Does it? Well that’s just something you’ll have to find out for yourselves. There was talk of a third National Treasure film, especially with the President asking Ben about help with page 32 in the presidents secret book, what was that all about. Who knows, because the third movie never happened but my guess was maybe Atlantis, well at least we still have these two to enjoy. Now sit back follow the map and enjoy the treasure hunt of a lifetime from your very own living room.
Melanie - Jenn might not be getting her 3rd movie BUT there is a new series in the works based on the movies but with a new heroine. Not many details available yet but you can read about it HERE! Both movies are currently streaming free with your Disney Plus Subscription OR you can rent them pretty much anywhere you rent movies.
