Peter Travers Video Review: "National Treasure: Book of Secrets," "Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem" and "The Bucket List"


Rolling Stone movie critic Peter Travers saves a year's worth of vitriol for his final reviews of 2007: National Treasure: Book of Secrets, a sequel to his most-hated movie of 2004 that is only (slighly) rescued by Helen Mirren, who follows her Academy Award-winning performance in The Queen in this awful Nicolas Cage vehicle; The Bucket List, "one soppy, sentimental, awful thing" starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman; and Aliens Vs. Preditor: Requiem, a film that makes Travers pray to the gods of cinema that this is the last time two great franchises will be besmirched by bad sequels. Bottom line: people of America, stop going to these movies.
