    yeah all they used were macs....but if you notice the assistant guy, short and funny one, uses a macblackbook the whole time, yet when they show what he is looking at on the laptop screen they are on a macbook pro! ahhhh.. movie goofs.

    I'm assuming you mean the 2nd National Treasure movie. Yeah, it was a fun flick, but ultimately was identical in so many ways to the 1st film. Macs are a given for Hollywood to use. Is there anything that Nick Cage can't do?

    I think the first one is better--it has a bit more humor, and Sean Bean is a better "villain" than Ed Harris, who really does look like he would rather be ANYWHERE other than in the movie.

    I really enjoyed the movie. I watched the first one, mainly due to all the Masonic references, the second because I'm a completists. It was very inventive and took a lot of poetic license, but quite entertaining.

    There's nothing like a Nick Cage monologue, when he uses his worldly charm and impressive repertoire of words to pinpoint the precise focus to single-handedly solve the most difficult of puzzles. Gives me chills just thinking about it.

    I thought the first one was far better than the second. The second was a fun movie to watch, but, in my opinion, not very good.

    again, 1st was deff better than the second, this often being the case. obviously big budget squeezing every drop of the success the 1st one made. alas, an easy watch, cant complain much.

    The 1st one was much, MUCH better. Although the 2nd one gave me something to do Christmas day:p

    Turn down a bad script.
    Not yell.
    Be convincing.
