Disney Studios can always be relied on to provide great entertainment, and this light-hearted treasure-hunt romp is right up to standard! It’s very much a Boys’ Own Paper kind of adventure yarn. Or to put it another way: it’s like an Indiana Jones picture without Harrison Ford. Here, Nicholas Cage heads up a plush cast that also includes Diane Kruger, John Voigt, Harvey Keitel, Christopher Plummer, Justin Bartha and Sean Bean.
Ben Franklin Gates (Nicholas Cage) and his family have long believed in the legend of a fantastic treasure trove that was hidden by the Founding Fathers of the United States. Many maintain that it doesn’t exist – but Ben finds that clues to its whereabouts have been left in such obvious places (including on the national currency) that people look at them daily without actually seeing them.
Starting at the Arctic Circle, his adventures include his organising a caper-type theft of a well-known national document – on the back of which he believes is a treasure-map sketched in invisible ink! He and his friend Riley Pool (Justin Bartha) are aided by Abigail Chase (Diane Kruger) who works at the National Archives. She, quite understandably, doesn’t believe their story…at first.
Academy Award® winner Nicolas Cage stars as the brilliant Benjamin Franklin Gates, 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. As word of the
invisible map spreads among the enemies of freedom, 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 teams up with a beautiful government official (Diane Kruger) as he tries to elude his
ruthless adversary (Sean Bean) as well as the FBI and Agent Sadusky (Harvey Keitel). With even his ex-treasurehunter
father (Jon Voight) skeptical of him, Gates must decipher the remaining clues and unlock the 2000 year-old
mystery behind our greatest national treasure.
