Goofs

When the fire engines are arriving at Buckingham Palace we hear a US style siren. LFB fire engines don't make the deep electric horn sound like US ones. The siren sound would have been dubbed on in ADR, this is because when using emergency vehicles in the UK for filming it's not permitted to use the siren on public roads as the sound is easily dubbed on after wards, although permission is granted to use lights and display insignia for visual effect.

not quite as exciting as the original film
3 April 2011 | by disdressed12See all my reviews

while i found this film to be very good,i didn't think it was quite as good as the original.the film follows the same formula as the original,but takes longer to get going found it a bit slow going-in some parts,and it wasn't quite as exciting.the first film was thrilling from almost start too finish.whereas this film wasn't. get me wrong.there are still some thrilling moments,just not as many as as i had hoped or expected.plus,there were a few absurd moments even in the context of the film.still,it is entertaining and worth watching.this time around,Ed Harris joins the cast as does Helen Mirren who adds some class to the film.for me,National Treasure: Book of Secrets is a 7/10
