Review: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Harrison Ford is back and kicking as Indiana Jones, jumping in graves and beating people up. How we all remember Indiana Jones so fondly, enjoyed the movies, and wanted more. I have had the boxset since it came out a couple of years ago, so I had high expectations for this movie. From the moment you start watching it you get a complete understanding of the time they are in, and Indiana Jones has grown older you can see it and feel it, it gives an authentic feel to him. As it picks up Shia LaBeouf enters into the movie and he flows perfectly, I really liked the character he played, it added a different flavor to the movie. It was a little bit longer then it should have been but overall it was an Indiana Jones movie, the ending won’t be accepted by everyone but still a damn good movie at that.

    Unfortunately, this Indiana Jones is the lamest, after so much anticipation, the movie was marred by CGI effects, nothing close to the real cliffhangers and funny moments we were used to by Indy. I just bought the Indiana Jones Chronicles volume I and II, although Harisson Ford is not in the movie, Sean Patrick Flanery, fit the role extremely well and provided the familty with over 20 hours of entertainement and education. Sorry Steven, but this is not what we have been waiting for, I think National Treasure is much more intersting. My verdict 2/5.

  3. The movie sucked…hated every second of it…EXTREMELY overhyped.

  4. I haven’t watched any on the Indiana Jones Movies :/

  5. I had read some negative reviews before I watched the film so I went expecting the worst.

    I loved it.

    It was a bit long but action packed and full of adventure and wit.

    Harrison was older but just as nutty and witty and adventurous as ever.

    My partner thought some of the scenes (stunts) exaggerated but I loved them. That’s what it’s all about. Had me laughing uncontrollably.

    The dialogue was intelligent and none of that F* this Sh* that.

    And most of all, the women both in their evil and their good roles were positive models.

  7. The new movie is supposed to be the best out of the trilogy… I still say “The Temple of Doom” was the best :)

  8. Part 3 is supposed to be the best one out of the trilogy, I still think “Temple of Doom” was the best :)

  10. Oh my … the only thing I liked about the movie was Shia LaBeouf because I have a weird crush on him…. other than that…. the ending was ultra lame… and I expected every thing that happened…. and kept going DUH!!

    Again… only good thing… Shia LeBeouf…. :)
