INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM (1984 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom falls into that elite ‘multiple-rewatch-is-absolutely-gonna-happen’ classification that only a few films achieve. The movie captivates its audience with superlative background sets, terrific actors, outstanding script, tense action sequences laced with comedic episodes to break tension, and balances everything with that unique aura that dominates the Indiana Jones series. Watch for the cameo appearance of Dan Aykroyd.

Storyline

Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) finds himself involved in an adventure to rescue children, retrieve Sankara stones, and defeat members of the Thuggee cult.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The film works as a classic study in non-stop action placed in outrageously exotic settings while being completely entertaining.
