Academy Award-winner Nicolas Cage stars as the brilliant Benjamin Franklin Gates, third generation treasure hunter. All his life, Gates has been searching for a treasure no one believed existed: amassed through the ages, moved across continents, to become the greatest treasure the world has ever known. Hidden by our Founding Fathers, they left clues to the Treasure's location right before our eyes ... from our nation's birthplace, to the nation's capitol, to clues buried within the symbols on the dollar bill. Gates' life-long journey leads him to the last place anyone thought to look: a map hidden on the back of the Declaration of Independence.
But what he thought was the final clue is only the beginning. [rottentomatoes.com]
"A radical adventure it is, with Nicolas Cage strapping on the hero boots to solve clues, dodge bullets and dangle off of underground wooden structures."
