Harrison Ford is back with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. One thing they kept intact was the fact that he is now older, much older!
Dr. Henry Jones is back into action. This time the quest is the search for a mythical kingdom, maybe El Dorado, a city of pure gold, the link to that is a crystal skull, a professor of archeology gone crazy and a rather strange KGB agent.
The movie was rather amusing, especially the fight sequences. However, there were a rather unrealistic and unbelievable scenes, like the one where he escapes from a nuclear bomb blast.
I will say that I am rather impressed by the agility of Harrison Ford. There are still traces of the original movies in the new one. And, it is good that they aged the protagonist.
Overall, well worth the watch.
My Rating: 7/10
i thought this movie was pretty cool, but the premise was slightly ridiculous… harrison ford is a bit too old for the part. sean connery refused to be in this movie because he found the plot to be so bad. but it was entertaining nonetheless.
I actually really liked the novel. I got it online, in ebook form, at BooksOnBoard.com-Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
check it out if you liked the movie. personally i usually think the book is better and it happened to be true in this case too.
I enjoyed the movie too, but like you said – there were scenes that were really unbelievable.
The old movies, while they had fantasy elements, were always believable when you were watching them. This one just had too many moments when you think “wait a minute, there’s no way that would happen for real”.
Still a good movie, though I prefer the originals.
I didn’t think the movie was going to be any good, but I was pleasantly wrong. A lot of the lines were pretty funny and I also felt the aura of the first few movies in parts.
I am disappointed that Sean Connery wasn’t in it though.
I caught the Last Crusade film last night, and couldn’t believe it was out in 1989. That’s almost 20 years since the last, and it’s cool to see that Ford can still be effective in an action movie.
i can’t wait to watch it !
Thanks for the review,
Even though it might not be as good as the other 3 it should still be an entertaining movie.
Look forward to see it!
mmm, interesting. thanks for the review mate.
No probs. Have you watched the moie?
Hmm, I think I will wait until this one comes out on video 🙂
I saw this movie and it did not please me. Old versions were better, had climate.
I watched it twice. Very nice show indeed.
