The film is the continuing adventures of treasure hunter Bejamin Franklin Gates (Nicolas Cage), his on-again-off-again girlfriend Abigail (Diane Kruger), his side-kick Riley (Justin Bartha), his father Patrick (Jon Voight). This time we are introduced to his mother ! – Emily Appleton, played by Helen Mirren!!

Asside from the injection of Helen Mirren, it all seemed a bit formula. The Gates family name needs to be cleared, and before you know it, we off on a treasure hunt. There is the usual car chase and Riley gets a little character development.

I have to confess that I am a Helen Mirren fan, and felt those scenes with her were definitely the better ones!! At 60+ she is still attractive and gives her character a fullness that some the other minor characters lacked.
