Here, the Lost Ark is the mother of all treasure hoards, plundered from the Middle East by the Knights Templar, shipped to America by the Founding Fathers, and hidden by the Freemasons just after several of their cult members drafted the Declaration of Independence (a document which proves to be a treasure map). Cage's Jones-like freebooter comes complete with a rival (Sean Bean's dastardly Brit), a plucky love interest (Kruger's government archivist), and a mentor who is also an estranged father (Voight). The set-up might be Spielberg, but the style and content is all Bruckheimer. Serviceable actioner.
