I love this movie, as I Iove all the Indy movies. The older, but not so much wiser, Indy still kept me glued to my chair the first time I watched it. I've watched it many times now, and while it's not up there with the first three, its still in my favourites list.
One of the most ridiculous movies I've seen in a long time. Should never have been made.
This movie was so very disappointing sequel. The Movie was completely reliant on C.G. I. effects which by 2008 standards, were not particularly impressive. The average script was uninspiring . Indy (Harrison Ford) appeared disinterested by his return to the role and seriously, he really looks his age. The interaction between the movies other characters just didn't work well - take for instance, his relationship with his double or was that his triple? agent side-kick , he was forced and his relationship to his ex-girlfriend was totally whimpy and lacked emotion. The whole movie was lacking in viewer excitement - there was little action scenes and no really attachment was built with the characters. Just pure C.G.I.
and a series of boringly repetitive fight scenes one after the other. Please Mr Speilberg - learn your lesson,.......... no more sequels!
worth watching - clean fun adventures. He's still "got it" !
Appalling bad, don't bother it's so boring and barely recognisable as Indiana Jones.
the witch in most sea ins spoils this movie
This movie promised a lot, but really didn't deliver on that promise. It was quite boring until the last half of the movie. Not nearly as good as previous titles in the series.
I love Indian JONES, however one must be honest, he's getting old and they're the same old routines. Doesn't mean I didn't enjoy watching the movie, it's a great one for the family however my kids enjoyed it more than I did.
PLEASE Harrison Ford - no more. You are embarrasing yourself. Find a good movie as you are a reasonable actor. A real joke of a movie.
Harrison Ford does a good job as Indiana Jones and I always enjoy his adventures even if he is getting a bit past it,shit I'm a bit past it and I have trouble climbing the stairs,but I enjoy his rollicking adventures and getting the women,(the nice looking ones).
great movie, became a little tomb raiderish at end
It's like all the Indiana moves, fun, adventure, humour...except that he is old....and past it. It would have been better to pass the mantle to his son and have Indi become a bit part.
Oh Dr Jones. Time to hang up the whip. Love the humour and tongue in cheek references to the earlier movies but I just couldn't sit through this and turned it off after an hour. Memo to self - never watch anything with Shia Le Beouf in it. Cate what were you thinking with that really bad Russian accent? Woeful.
Not bad, but seen better for Indiana Jones
Once again, the original is always the best, but this was still a fun movie to watch. Great to see the return of Marion. Quite amusing to see the warehouse scene in which a storage box is damaged, revealing the Ark of the Covenant from the first film. Worth a look but glad I didn't pay to see it at the movies.
Enjoyed it, but not as much as the original movies. Found the chase scene in the middle far too long but otherwise the pace was fine. Wouldn't have minded quick flash back to remind me who Marion was because I had forgotten, although she looked familiar. Didn't think the alien concept was fully explained.
Npt as good as the first three films. Lots of action and special effects. A good finale to the character, though
Good plot, great acting, good graphics. Not quite what I was expecting when I heard about the new 'Indie' movie, but good all the same. I suggest you spend the time watching this.
The thing with Indiana Jones movies is you have to suspend disbelief - and The Crystal Skull is no different! These films have always been tongue in cheek, and if you let yourself enjoy this one you will. It's thrilling and exciting, even if a bit silly in places. Cate Blanchett is a good addition as is Shia Lebouf.
Boring, formulaic - Harrison give it up!. Didn't watch to the end.
best movie i have seen in a long while. I was glued to the screen for a change. Full of action and wit.
This 4th IJ film did not not give me the x-factor experience. The previous films were much more refined and were very well engaging. This film however lacked a certain strength when it comes to true adventure and the plotting of the characters that direct the film in a seamless motion. I found this one a touch down from the other 3 because it was too soft for what it should of been. Its a reasonable film for mostly kids under 16 and for family's. But it's not a movie for the serious viewers that expect a higher standard of action/adventure.
Great movie. As always Indiana saves the day. Great laughs and a lot of action in this one would definately recommend to Harrison Ford Fans.
My appreciation of this Indie movie was spoilt because the DVD kept 'freezing' in the player. It's a good story for the hardened Indie fan, but has the misfortune of travelling over a lot of ground already covered, an example being the car chase scene, which is very like other Indie movies. I though that more could have been made of the 'psychic warrior' aspect of the film. Cate Blanchett disappeared into the character, which is admittedly a comic book type of character, as they all are - a sign of a good actress. I always like Karen Allen, and the twist of Indie's son was good.
Good fun in the great tradition of Indiana Jones!
All the bells and whistles you would expect from an Indiana Jones movie. Most of it unbelieveable Hollywood rubbish, but surprisingly kept me entertained. I hope this is the last one though, i don't think another one will work.
I've always really enjoyed the other films but I felt this one fell a bit short. The alien aspect of the storyline wasn't great and I felt the plot was a little hard to follow at time because it jumped ahead very quickly, i.e. Indy was making conclusions and working things out seemingly out of nowhere.
However, if you enjoy A LOT of crazy action then this would be one for you. Good for a night when you don't want anything particularly serious and can chuckle at some physics-defying action sequences and rather corny acting.
I didnt even finish watching this one. Was just ridiculous and annoying to watch. Ill stick to the old ones thanks!
A great action packed movie, if you don't mind stretching your imagination.
The movie is alright, although Harrison Ford's agility in action movies are the same anymore when he was younger.
tipical indy movie, but that's not a bad thing.
Wow, did not realise who the actress was who played the evil Russian chick, until the end - excellent work!! Overall a good adventure, drama, comedy
disappointing in every way - so far from the style and energy of all the others - so glad I didn't get gouged to see it at the cinema
Unbelievably bad! One set piece after another. I was looking at my watch most of the way through. Hard to believe such a great cast was so woefully misused. George Lucas clearly had a hand in the script as the dialogue was awful. If you're an Indy fan, remember the last three fondly and steer clear of this.
The sound track fires up??? you fidget with anticipation??? Then in 10 minutes the reality ??? this movie really lacks what made Raiders and Last Crusade so watchable. There is no real standout performance, maybe John Hurt treads water better than the others. But a tired Harrison Ford, precocious Shia LaBoeuf, laughable Cate Blanchett (but you don???t), and stilted Karen Allen drudge through what is a predictable plot, amateur CGI in places (the car chase by the ravine for example), cheesy dialogue (not repartee), and character sub-plots that just don???t work (Indi as Mutt???s father). In fact, it is probably on a par with Temple of Doom for entertainment, but it does leave you wondering what else you could have been doing for the past 117 minutes.
All the usual Indiana Jones features with the hunt of historic treasures, and Harrison Ford is still good and believable as Indy... The story line a little weak, an the ending a bit disappointing compared to other Indy films.
Okay not sure if I am being overly generous and letting my fandom stop me from panning this. My earliest cinema memory is Raiders of the lost ark, and like the South Park crew I could see Indie being raped by Lucas and Speilberg. Aliens have no place in an Indiana move but killer ants, and non stop action do. It's worth a look.
Worth watching yet disappointing - not as good as the originals, but now we expect more. Faithful to the original to a fault - they kept some things that could have been updated. Like when a man gets carried away by ants - just not convincing.
Could have been a lot better if updated to reflect an audience that has changed.
Too predictable. We all know what is going to happen - it is all so obvious.
Also been a fan a Indiana Jones fan. lot of action thank god for the Cold war conspiracies or no movies would have been made
Classic Indy. Entertaining.
Can tell Harrison Ford is a lot older. A cople of scenes in the beginning of the movie, it is obvious that he is struggling to move quickly. Other than that the movie was good for an Indiana Jones adventure.
This is the first Indiana Jones movie i have seen, it was alright - Shia made it fun to watch. I didn't like the ending though.
Great entaertainment from yet another of the Indianna Jones stories. Great for kids and adults
Not in the same league as the trilogy. Bit disappointed in the story line. Glad I did see it at the cinema.
was'nt that good the first one's were better. harrison ford is a great actor.
Indiana jones didnt dissapoint. It was fun to watch with a little humor and adventure.If you are a fan you wont be dissapointed.Loved it.
Really enjoyed this movie. Great viewing. The team were at their best once again. More like this please.
Well, if you are a fan you'll probably love it. Certainly entertaining and some of the over the top hollywood trash is hilarious. Forget reality, forget common sense, forget a believable plot and the laws of physics - just be entertained!
Ripper of an opening! All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable romp although 'beefy boy' was a bit hard to take and tried too hard to fit in. The rest of the cast knew what was expected and delivered in aces.
Do not expect the Indiana Jones of the originals, obviously, because he is now a lot older, but he's still got it. If you have seen the others and you enjoyed all of them, watch this.
enjoyable and predictable
Uno, starting to be "just pumping them out" type of Movie but still worth watching. Plenty of action with a bit of Punch..
Well we've pretty much seen it all before haven't we. I've definitely outgrown this franchise and I think it's time Harrison, Stephen and George did as well.
Enjoyed this one, especially the inside of the mountain. Interesting use of mechanics and sand, etc. A bit too much of the shooting and fighting scenes. Cate Blanchett looked hard as nails, excellent acing.
Good to see Karen Allen back in the scene and Shia playing their son. A good tie in of actors. I would recommend this if you have already seen the previous Indy movies.
I really enjoyed this movie, it is like the rest of the other indiana jones movies but the twist in this, well that got me thinking that was a bit too out there.
I really enjoyed this. I was so skeptical with all the bad reviews but so glad I watched it for myself. Yes Harrison is older [it is 18 years since the last one] but I think the story line portrayed his age well. Watch it and decide for youself.
Fine wines improve with age. Shame the same doesn't apply to George Lucas. Like the last 3 Star Wars movies, he's also butchered this, the latest Indy movie. Bad dialogue, Hammy acting and over the top special effects. Only watched it all the way through in the hope it improved....it didn't.
looked fwd to this movie. But I don't know why, in all sincerity, the worse chase secence i have had to sit through. It goes on and on, i think it is to pad out the movie. I am sorry but Harrison give it up and go gracefully..
I must admit I enjoyed this movie not quite as good as the original 3 but still I thought well done and I was glad they made indy older instead of trying to keep him as young as the previous movies
Sooo disappointing. Maybe, and just maybe. Indian Jones, to me, is about archeology and old Bible myths, not a master race of aliens and space ships. Cate's character is just bad, Shia is there to get some teens in the door and maybe John Hurt is there to try to add some cred to this poor effort. And the bit at the end with the hat in the church had us cringing.
Wasnt a bad movie but its such a shame it wasnt made 10 years ago. Harrison is certainly showing his age. The story line was a bit of a leap from the traditional ones so it ends up more X-Files than Indie.
I would never expect to see aliens even mentioned in an Indiana Jones movie, and the part played by Cate Blanchett was terrible. I much prefer the classic Jones movies, this did them no justice.
What a great movie to sit down with the family and have a good laugh. I really felt good after watching this movie.
Not at the same level as the others... Harrison is clearly too old, Blanchett's acting is over the top and Shia's character is just needed in this movie....
Wish hollywood would stop doing these sequels to classics...look what happened to Star Wars..
I have always been an Indy Fan, got hooked on Raiders Of The Lost Ark. This latest outing is not quite as good as Raiders but is still on hell of a good adventure. Special effects are, as always, just outstanding. Mr. Ford is the only actor that can be Indiana Jones.
I enjoyed this movie a lot, much better than anything that is R rated, swearing by the max making the movie unbearable. This had sufficient action to keep the interest, and mildly scary for the very young.
One bonus, the sequels kept with the same star which many do not and they lose sight of the original storyline by going off on a tangent.
Movie wasn't too bad, typical of the Indiana Jones type movie, ending was a bit ho hum. Unfortunately I think the Germans would have been a better choice instead of the Communist to play the baddies.
I think Harrison Ford does look a little bit older but still fit to play Indiana Jones.
Story wise not as good as the previous 3, feel a little bit cartoony but watchable.
George Lucas murders another franchise. Honestly, and in all seriousness, the worst movie I've ever seen. Nonsensical plotline, characters with no motivation or backstory, and the most ludicrous ending ever committed to film.
No point beating about the bush here. I have been a committed Indy fan for more than twenty years and I’m not going to stop now. It has been a long time since I have been as excited about a new release as this one. I don’t care what anyone says, I don’t see how anyone can be disappointed with Kingdom. Cold War conspiracies, rock’n’roll, giant snakes, Cate Blanchett as an evil Russian femme fatale, sword fights on jeeps racing through the jungle, a nuclear explosion, alien autopsies, quick sand, flying saucers, exploding heads and monkeys (lots). What more can a growing boy ask for? At the end of the amazing climatic sequence my five year old piped up: “Now, that really freaked me out!”. Indeed. The most fun you can legally have while sitting still in the dark.
