Flick Pick: National Treasure

National Treasure
(Disney, 2004)

Charming, witty, and absolutely fun to watch, this blockbuster caper/treasure hunt from Disney was hugely successful, and simultaneously sparked a renewed interest in American history. The transitions are Hollywood classic lessons on how to move a story along from one scene to the next. Casting was inspired, with no shortage of talent (when your sixth acting slot is filled by Harvey Keitel, your movie has quite a bench), plot twists, great locations, and just enough plausibility to keep the audience hooked all the way to the conclusion.
