The Blu-ray version of National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets
finally arrives and takes the viewer to the next level of this
highly popular series. The original film, National Treasure was a
huge success at the movies and this sequel returns the original
characters to the franchise plus a few new fresh faces.
Best described as a modern Indiana Jones film, National

is thoroughly entertaining from start to finish. Even though sequels
are generally tainted as not being as good as the original, this
sequel far excels over the first movie in terms of story and special

treasure hunter who vows to redeem his ancestor’s name that has been

Unfortunately for Gates, Mitch Wilkinson (Ed Harris) also wishes to
claim the book as his own and truly makes a great modern villain.
Jon Voight returns as Benjamin Franklin Gates father Patrick and
Helen Mirren makes her debut as his estranged wife.

Blu-Ray, the video and audio quality is outstanding and is probably
one of the most impressive blu-ray discs available with
exceptionally sharp picture quality, vibrant colours and perfect
audio. Match that with a plethora of interesting and entertaining
special features and this is one first class blu-ray presentation!
