INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL (2008 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull adds Shia LaBeouf as the son of Indiana Jones and reprises Karen Allen as Marion Ravenwood (Raiders of the Lost Ark)—one of the best ideas made in the entertainment business for reprised roles. This film typifies the adventure of the series and continues with the large onscreen charisma of Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. The story is great. It is worth watching.

Storyline

Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) battles Soviets to limit access to enormous psychic power.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This film finishes the last of the Indiana Jones series produced through the year 2018. While not as good as the rest of the series, it is worth watching and comparable to the other films in the series. And, Harrison Ford casts well with Shia LaBeouf, Karen Allen, and Cate Blanchett.
