To foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a face-transplant surgery and assumes the identity of a ruthless terrorist. But the plan backfires when the same criminal impersonates the cop with the same method.
A murder inside the Louvre and clues in Da Vinci paintings lead to the discovery of a religious mystery protected by a secret society for two thousand years -- which could shake the foundations of Christianity.
Benjamin Franklin Gates descends from a family of treasure-seekers who've all hunted for the same thing: a war chest hidden by the Founding Fathers after the Revolutionary War. Ben's close to discovering its whereabouts, as is his competition, but the FBI is also hip to the hunt. Written by
The book that Ben shows Riley in the Library of Congress that has the information about the Preservation Room is called 'The Earth System'. It is some sort of a textbook and it is authored by Lee Kump, James F. Kasting, and Robert G. Crane. The ISBN is 0131420593. See more »
When Gates and his party enter the Charolette's cargo hold there are cannon mounted and barrels of gun powder. Ships did not mount cannons in cargo holds, but rather on gun decks designed to support the weight and recoil. Also, the decks of cargo holds were below the water line, making it impossible to have a gun port. Further, gunpowder was stored in magazines in all ships for safety. Leaving it in a cargo hold would be an invitation for a disaster. See more »
Completely unbelievable but fun romp around the world looking for treasure...it won't win any awards but its a good two hours at the movies.
The plot to trying to find a lost treasure a clue to which is on the back of the Declaration of Independence is so beyond belief that its best to simply begin by throwing up your hands and accepting it for what it is. Certainly the cast has thrown reality to the wind and appears to be having a grand time.
My only complaint, and its what keeps me from saying you you should see this in a theater instead of renting it, is that the pacing is off. It needs a zipper pace to get us from A to B. Certainly it moves well, but there were times when I just wanted to to move a bit faster. Its a minor fault, but one that prevented me from really loving this.
7 out of 10. Definitely worth seeing, preferably for less than what they charge for a full price movie admission these days.
