All his life, Benjamin Franklin Gates has been searching for a treasure no one believed existed, amassed through the ages, moved across continents, to become the greatest treasure in the world. Hidden by the founding fathers, they left clues to the treasure's location right before their eyes... from their nation's birthplace, to the nation's capitol, to clues buried within the symbols of the dollar bill. In a race against time, Gates must elude the FBI, stay one step of his ruthless adversary(Sean Bean), decipher the remaining clues and unlock the 200 year-old mystery behind their greatest national treasure.

National Treasure is one of my favorite movies of all time! I love the treasure hunt aspect, the part where nobody seems to believe in him and they prove them wrong. I love the family aspect of the story, how subtle and realistic they presented it. I also love that there are so many fascinating things you can see and learn in the movie.

I saw this on cable tv, and it's so perfect from the cast to the whole cinematography. Nick cage and his leading lady was just wornderful. I watched it untill late night and my husband gave up watching it bec he has to go to work the next day. I love the whole story and feel very excited to every scene.
