Nicholas Cage takes an Indiana Jones-style adventure in this fun-filled action movie. As treasure-seeking Benjamin Franklin Gates, he discovers a clue to a treasure of the ancient cult of the Knights Templar that leads him to believe there's another clue hidden in the original copy of The Declaration of Independence stored in the National Archives in Washington DC. To get at it, he enlists the help of his estranged father, played largely numbly by Jon Voight, and a cast of treasure seekers. The fly in the ointment - besides the fact that The National Archives tend to be rather parochial about the documents in their care - is a beautiful young archivist Cage tries to persuade to allow him to examine The Declaration. At heart, its simply a bank caper flick with car chases and intrigue around every corner, but its a great evening's entertainment.
