National Treasure



Being an inquisitive boy Benjamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage) was found in his grandfather’s attic searching for information about the mystical treasure his family has searched for so many years--- to find it--- and prove it was real.
Ben’s Grandfather John Adams Gates (Christopher Plummer) found him in his attic--- and told him he was undertaking the duty of the “Family Gates” to find--- the most spectacular treasure in history.

Grandfather Gates told Ben the story behind the search---how the treasure grew through the centuries and was moved across continents---until it was hidden by American’s founding fathers ---that left clues for us. It is our duty to find it and protect it, and today I hand this down to you Benjamin.

Years later---Ben still searched for the treasure---as he followed the clues of ten generations---he stayed true to his promise to his grandfather. Ben’s father Patrick Gates (Jon Voight) tells him it is a myth. But Ben has his own belief about the treasure and is determined to find it.

Ben is hired by Ian Howe (Sean Bean) to find the treasure. Ben and his friend Riley Poole (Justin Bartha) joined with Ian and his crew to find the next clue. Since Ben was a boy he was told that "Charlotte" held the secret. But who was Charlotte? Where was Charlotte?

After they found a ship buried deep in the snow---everything went wrong for Ben and Ian. In their conversation Ben is the only smart enough to find the conclusion to all the clues. Ben said the map to the treasure had to be on the back of the Declaration of Independence and that is when Ian said they would steal it.

When Ian said that Ben said "No"---so Ian tried to end their Boss and Employee relationship by killing Ben and Riley---only it did not work out that way. Because Ben and Riley survived to fight another day.

Now they had to protect the Declaration of Independence and they could only do this by stealing it themselves before Ian and his crew steals it. And this is when they meet Abigail Chase (Diane Kruger) who works and protects the Declaration of Independence.
This is there the action, adventure, fun, and romance begins as the three of them team up to find the treasure and protect it and the Declaration of Independence.

This is a great movie I’ve had my copy since 2004 and maybe you will get yours to watch it anytime you like.
