I get crap fro all my movie critic and intellectual friends for saying this, but I really enjoyed the first National Treasure. I’m sure I’ll even get some flack in the comments for saying so. It was a fun, sit back, relax, much on some popcorn, sip on some soda, no need to think, type of movie. And sure, the concept was completely stolen from Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code novels, but who really cares? To be honest, National Treasure was a far more entertaining movie than Ron Howard’s adaptation of the Code. I also must admit that the first trailer for Disney’s sequel National Treasure: Book of Secrets worried me. It looked bad, but not in a good way. Thankfully, the second full length trailer which hit the interwebs tonight is a much better cut. My only complaint right now is that, much like a lot of trailers, it probably shows too much. You can check out this new trailer below.
