Everyone's favorite archeologist adventurer dusts off his hat and trusty whip for yet another globetrotting trek as Indiana Jones returns to the big screen nearly 20 years after racing for the Holy Grail alongside his father in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). Harrison Ford reprises his role as the iconic, snake-loathing screen hero in a sequel that also finds Karen Allen returning to the series for the first time since 1981's Raiders of the Lost Ark. Ray Winstone, John Hurt, Jim Broadbent, and Shia LaBeouf round out a cast that also features Cate Blanchett in the role of villainous Russian operative Agent Irina Spalko. Steven Spielberg calls the shots on a script penned by David Koepp (and adapted from the screen story by executive producer George Lucas). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Simply put, Indiana Jones did not belong in this sci-fi story. Yes, the older movies were excentric, but they dealt more with the supernatural and would not fall under the sci-fi label. I never forgot that I was in a theater and couldn't stop thinking that Indy's character was terribly out of place in almost every scene, especially the ending. I had read an interview with Spielberg that he wanted to use Frank Darabont's script (he adapted "The Shawshank Redemption", "The Green Mile" and "The Mist", so his resume speaks for itself) but George Lucas was set on using Koepp's. I wonder how much better this movie would have been if Lucas had stepped aside and given Spielberg full control. Sometimes I think Lucas has lost touch with his audience.
The beginning of it was really good then it turned out to be an alien movie which was kind of wierd. I could have lived with out the space ship at the end. The old ones were ten times better than this one. This one just looked to fake compared to the other ones. This movie just turned out real corny at the end. I give it 2 stars.
