  • Audiences looking for emotional resonance in Indy 4 are doomed to the temple of disappointment. Spielberg and Lucas aren't upping their creative game -- they're taking care of business. show more

  • The movie moves. It has action sequences that are so enormous that they won't just wow audiences, but rock them back in their seats and make them laugh at the audacity of it all. show more

  • Even with the ponderous dialogue, it's hard not to have fun on this adventure, and it's good to see that Indy, though slightly weary, still has the goods. show more

    It\'s time for Indy to hang it up. I guess they paid Ford a wheel barrow full of money to make this junk. Shame on you Harrison. You should have stopped with the Last Crusade. That was your best. It was the same old thing, nothing new. A rather miserable experience. Folks, if you want to see movie making ****** best, see \"The King\'s Speech.\" All this movie proved is that Messers. Spielberg, Lucas and Ford are more interested in making money than in making good cinema. Pass it by.

    Sorry! But it is time to leave good enough alone. This movie was terrible. Ford looked very, very Old and run down.Please move on. Enough with the Indiana Jones sequals.
