National Treasure - Best Fantasy of 2004

A 200+ year old ship found in the middle of the arctic - in near perfect condition. A seemingly bottomless pit found underneath a boston church. Torches that spring to life and hold all their potency after centuries. Oh, did I mention that the ship was loaded with gunpowder - and smokeless at that! (It should have been black powder at that age..)

All the above aside, the movie was great! Mostly predictable, but had some neat twists. Although it did not excel in any category, there was enough action, suspense, and comedy to make it worthwhile. They even held the cheesy love story to a minimum.
