Chicago Tribune
Overall the film is alluringly over-the-top without being overcooked.

Charlotte Observer
The film whirls by in a satisfying torrent of chases, escapes and discoveries.

Miami Herald
It's a tomb-raiding adventure movie several notches below Indiana Jones status.

Philadelphia Inquirer
An undeniable pleasure of National Treasure was watching a movie shot locally that wasn't haunted by a virus or by dead people.
50
Too bad the clever bits are swamped by no-brainer gunfights, rescues, and chases galore.
50
Too dumb and improbable to even go into.
40
It's a silly, stupendously artificial enterprise.
30
The A.V. Club
It lacks the conviction to embrace its own garish awfulness, resulting in little more than tedious historical and patriotic hokum, a preposterous potboiler done in by slack pacing and pedestrian execution.
20
If National Treasure mattered at all, you might call it a national disgrace, but this piece of flotsam is so inconsequential that it amounts to little more than a piece of Hollywood accounting.
10
Dallas Observer
Isn't any fun at all, which is ultimately the most damning thing you can say about a Bruckheimer movie.
