Not as bad as I thought it would be but I still prefer Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade.And oh, this movie could have been a little better without this plot of Mutt being Indy's son.
This is the movie in which I use as the "Bar" to rate horrible movies. F-
The one thing that killed this aside the incredibly bad casting for Indy's kid can be summed up in one word, aliens. You want aliens watch Aliens not Indiana Jones.
The usual Indiana Jones stuff (which is decent). But everything they decided to update or change sucks.
Raiders of the Lost skull
Spoilers: Jones went from fun ridiculous to just stupid. First we see something that's insanely magnet effect gun powder but nothing else seems effected. When they find the source where has all the gun powder gone? Ray Winstone has a head on collusion then in the next shot he's standing up with his head in his hand. Jones survives an atomic bomb by getting in a fridge! So much for the great action openers Jones was known for.
I went into this movie with low expectations and it was about what I expected. There was a lot of swashbuckling action scenes mixed in with some other scenes that really made me shake my head. To sum it up... completely unnecessary but if you suspend some disbelief this movie is passable.
Its nowhere near as good as the originals but its still an ok movie. Harrison Ford is still great as he reprises more roles he did in the 80s. I love Cate Blanchett but her character didn't work for me and remember when Shia LaBeouf was going to be the next big star? The aliens were a weird choice. There was too many CGI animals. Overall worst in the series but I would still watch it at least once to see all of Indiana Jones's adventures. I'm not excited for the next one but I am cautiously optimistic.
My ol'lady wants to watch nature shows right now so even watching this again seems less painful
Indiana Jones y el reino de la calavera de cristal
We see the fanedit, is shorter, almost without ridiculous scenes and best music
Sequels always water the initial experience of the first one. Sad really but rarely do sequels out perform. One case however is the Trek series where the 1st was terrible and the Wrath of Kahn much better. Skip ST 1 if you can. Sorry, I did digress but point is with each Raiders installment it just gets worse in spit of some great talent in each of them. #ShiftvW8

As with all the other Indiana Jones movies: for me this 4th part is just a mediocre action flick. Why the Indiana Jones franchise got it's huge fan base I will never understand (although at least with Kingdom of the Crystal Skull people begin to agree with me. Or how else can the 63% rating be explained?!)
I'm not an archeologist so I didn't get all the jokes or references.....hence the 'meh'
