National Treasure – 2-Disc Collector’s Edition (Disney DVD Set)


Picture: C+     Sound: B-     Extras: C+     Film: C+



OK, let’s be honest.  Disney is only issuing the Nicolas Cage hit National Treasure in a double DVD set (and oddly, not a Blu-ray yet) simply because the sequel is on the way.


Well, here is the link to our original review of the widescreen DVD:





The fact of the mater is that this is the same exact picture and sound transfer as the last version, except the picture looks softer and the extras are repeated.  The only new extras added are even more deleted scenes they suddenly found with more director commentary and four more featurettes about the film:


Cyphers, Codes & Codebreakers

On The Set Of American History

To Steal A National Treasure

Exploding Charlotte



That will make fans happy and all will likely appear on the whenever-it-surfaces Blu-ray, but unless you really love this film, the new features only add so much.  If you have it, is that enough to repurchase it?


Now we’ll see what they do with then next film.
