This action/comedy starring Nicolas Cage and Diane Kruger was produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and is a honey of a show. It is a treasure hunt film that sports a look like Indiana Jones and combines a high-stakes caper with a quest for ancient treasure.
Nicolas Cage stars as Benjamin Franklin Gates, who has searched his whole life for a fortune few dare to believe even exists. This is the legendary Knights Templar Treasure, said to be the richest bounty in history, and hidden somewhere in America itself.
For over six generations, the Gates family has searched for clues left by our founding fathers and have not yet located the treasure. But wait, maverick Ben Gates (Cage) has found a clue to the location of the treasure: hidden on the back of the Declaration of Independence. In a race with a ruthless adversary (Sean Bean), Ben must steal (or borrow) the valuable document before the real crook does. Follow this exciting adventure and thrill to the mystery and chase.
