I saw it yesterday with a small but vocal audience.  Two thumbs-up, though the script could have been stronger.  Plenty of humor (and good acting between Jon Voight and Helen Mirren - you remember her, don't you?  The captain of the Leonov in Odyssey 2?) and some tension, but the connect-the-dots was too easy.  My main gripe is giving Ed Harris such a weak role; but again, that is the script.

The audience applauded at the end, if that means anything. Smiley

I'm glad to hear this as Lyric and I really enjoyed the first National Treasure movie.

We took our three girls (10, 10, and 6) yesterday. The younger 10 (younger by 4 months) was literally on the edge of her seat for a good portion of it. The little one thought the big vehicle chase was scary. The older 10 was totally engrossed.

Oh, and we liked it just fine, too. :-)

The setup for #3 was glaring, but hey... it's not like we didn't know that was going to happen, is it.

I agree with War--Helen Mirren and Jon Voight were delightful. Their initial exchange had the audience rolling. (Even our kids.) I never saw Odyssey 2, but I remember her very fondly from Boorman's "Excalibur." She was hot Hot HOT as Morgan La Fey.

Damn, I gotta see that movie.  I was planning on anyway because I loved the first one.  Was that exchange really in it?  Isn't that highly unusual for a movie made by Satan Disney?  I remember the word eunuch being used twice in the first Pirate movie.  Did the company finally loosen it's strict censorship or are they making movies for an older audience now?

That's a direct quote, all right.
