National Treasure: Book of Secrets Trailer

August 3, 2007

Thanks to Goody for passing along this National Treasure: Book of Secrets trailer. What really bothers me about this movie--aside from the infeasible plot, gimmicky action, and over-the-top situations--is just how smug everyone is constantly acting. If you're going to say that you're going to kidnap the president of the United States, for example, at least have the humility to speak in a tone that indicates you're aware of how tremendously difficult it will be. Why is all the crazy shit described in the unbelievable dialogue said with the same obnoxious, matter-of-fact arrogance?

And how about that joke at the end of the trailer? It turns out our greatest national treasure is Nicolas Cage's brilliant comedic timing!
