Giving cinematic praise where it's due. Raining down hellfire where it's not.

National Treasure (2004)
You know right away that the plot is going to be fast and loose with
reality when they are searching for an old ship buried under the snow
in the artic, and Nicolas Cage shovels a few times only to uncover
the very spot where the ship's name appears on the stern. The rest of
the movie is a series of incredible coincidences, perfect plans, and
It's not unwatchable. In fact, they did a decent job with comedic
relief and mixing historic facts and cleavor clues. However,
the "love" story was beyond lame and completely unbelievable.
