Ben Gates (Nicholas Cage) and his Old Man (Jon Voight) are presenting a lecture about their ancestor Thomas Gates.  A mystery man (Ed Harris) stands up at the back of the room claiming he was a traitor and complicite in Abraham Lincoln's murder - with proof from a missing diary page.

Alternative Title: National Treasure 2
Our Rating: 6/10 - Its a good cast, but is simply not as good as the first movie
Watchability: 4/10 - the long time taken to ponder each puzzle is annoying enough the first run-through

So, how does the movie end??

After following the book's trail across the globe and pondering over 'puzzlesNULL, they arrive at Mount Rushmore to find the City of Gold hidden underneath (and a pretty small city too, more like a village, or just a big car park - its not worth watching the close-to 2 hours for that).
  Suddenly water breaks-out all around, but the treasure team follow the current and make it out with the help of Ed Harris's reluctant sacrificial bad-guy turned good-guy at the very, very end type act keeping the heavy door open.
  Arrested by the Feds they quickly receive Presidential pardons and return to catalogue the damp temples and odd few bricks remaining.
  Cage's ancestor is exonerated with a tiny front-page side-article in a newspaper (as if anyone would particularly care) and at the end Riley is handed back his Ferrari by the White House which he instantly reverses into a parked car, Mr.Bean style. Oh Riley, you comedy genius.

Random Notes!
""Page 47"" in the Presidential Book of Secrets seems to be the premise for the third installment in this series (likely to be UFOs/Roswell 1947 and all that). Why the low HDTME score? That Austin Powers style London sequence with those irritating ""British"" accents from 'the Bobbies' annoys the life out of me. Do movie bosses ever visit the UK or just watch re-runs of Mary Poppins for research?
