The adventure continues...

The newest Indiana Jones adventure commences in the desert in 1957 - the height of the Cold War. After barely escaping a close scrape with Soviet agents Professor Jones returns home to Marshall College only to find that the government have forced the university to fire him.

On his way out of town, Indiana meets rebellious young Mutt (Shia LaBeouf), who has a proposition for the adventurous archaeologist: If he'll help Mutt on a mission with deeply personal stakes, Indy could very well make one of the most spectacular archaeological finds in history - the Crystal Skull of Akator, a legendary object of fascination, superstition and fear.

     Fantastic rollercoaster of a movie!

    A rollercoaster movie, that is just pure simple fun from start to finish. The man is back, looking for the Lost City of Gold, the resting place of the Crystal Skulls. It's true to say that Ford doesn't seem to have the presence that he once had. He's one Hollywood actor who seems to act older than he really is, but hey, I'm nitpicking, it's still a very good film.
    Trying not to give anything away; previous films have remained fairly well within the limits of religious and mythological text, but this film leaves all that behind and jumps clean in to the realm of modern fiction. Especially at the end of the film were gob smacking special effects are somewhat marred by the Marmite storyline. Never mind, though, it's still way, way better than National Treasure II ( with which there are some striking similarities in the story ) . No, it isn't as good as the first three films, but it's still a great film, and the best action movies for years. A well deserved five stars!

     fantastic - the 'man in the hat' rules!

    Saw 'Crystal Skull' today and it's AWESOME!! Yes it's got a 'different' tone to the previous Indy movies, but not the worse for it! It's got it all ,chases,humour,myths and legends...Harrison DOES look older but this does not spoill the film...he's just tougher! I was filled with trepidation before seeing it..would it ruin the Indy Saga as certain reviews would have you believe? I say NO, and is a worthy addition to the series, in my humble opinion. I can see why certain people will hate 'Skull' as it was NEVER going to be the movie you had in your head. Just go see it and enjoy the thrill of a movie simply made to be ENJOYED. You'll leave the cinema with THAT theme tune in your head, and will replay it whilst running for the bus, imagining you're Indiana..or is that just me?! I for one will be ordering it on DVD!!!

     At least it's not as bad as the Star Wars prequels.

    Now the dust has settled, it's probably a good time to appraise the Indiana Jones film that almost (and some would say should have) never got made.
    It starts well enough, and despite an uneasy feeling about the grey Indiana being pushed around - the first action scene is handled very well. In fact it's probably the longest set piece in a Jones movie if we include the warehouse fight, the rocket train and the nuclear explosion. Exposition is kept tight and even the introduction of Indiana's son is smoothly done. Then things start to unravel slightly, the jungle sequence with John Hurt is too long, and the family comedy side of things starts to go a little over the top. From this point on, the action relies too heavily on CGI and all feels too much like the jungle chase in Return of the Jedi - and it's here that the audience begins to feel disengaged. The final bouts of action feel like an anti-climax, and it's only a scene with some reasonably convincing ants that injects some much needed excitement into the proceedings.
    Although the ending doesn't make complete sense, I was happy with the aliens angle and thought it was still mysterious enough to not betray the themes of the earlier films.
    The very final scene is handled very well, and almost makes you wish for another (hopefully better) Indiana Jones film.
    Compared to similar fare available these days this is about as good as you can expect, it just fails to live up to the fondness felt for the earlier films. Then again, perhaps it's too early to tell - in ten years time a more dispassionate reviewer may rate this above Temple of Doom, but for me the CGI and the rubber snake are enough to knock this down to 3.5/5.

     Indy's still the best at what he does after all these years!

    We have had many films try and steal Indy's crown over the years such as Sahara, Tomb Raider, National Treasure, The Da Vinci Code and The Mummy films but they have all failed. 19 years after The Last Crusade we at long last have The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull to show all the pretenders how it should be done. Harrison Ford still looks and plays the role of Indy great at the age of 65 what a inspiration he is to us all. Shia Labeouf who was in the film Transformers is great as Indy's son and John Hurt who starred in the first Alien film is wonderful to watch as normal. Cate Blanchett who was in The Lord Of The Rings trilogy makes a excellent villain and I must say that Ray Winstone who is most famous for playing in gangster films The Departed being one of them is jolly good too. The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull takes place in the 1950's during the cold war so are hero is taking on the Russians instead of the Nazis which makes sense as Indy has aged of coarse. The story is very good with lots of action and I must say I for one thought the ending was tremendous too. For all those people that thought this film was unrealistic and over the top watch the original films again as the Indiana Jones films have always been far fetched, but for me that is part of the fun and why many people like myself love them. Mr Lucas and Spielberg please let us have this film out on Blu-ray the same time as DVD as it is most excellent and I can't wait to see it again!

     The ridiculous title says it all.

    The 4th instalment of the Indiana Jones series has to be one of the most overrated and over hyped films in a while.

    Sure at the time Raiders of the Lost Ark (and to an extent The Last Crusade) were decent, but this all seems such a waste of time. The plot is awful with a somewhat ridiculously crazy sci-fi ending (which influential beard had too much imput on that I wonder?) boardering on the laughable, including (no spoilers to follow) pointless CGI gophers, an indestructible fridge and the dodgiest of European/Upper Class British accents by Cate Blanchett made this painful to watch at times.

    Overall I took nothing from this, and on further reflection dislike it even more. It really is that bad and to hear people raving about it, well, I cannot understand apart from clinging onto nostalgia.

    The only redeeming feature is the chemistry between Shia LaBeouf and Harrison Ford, which at times is good. But that's about it.
