Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

7 06 2008

Jones is back and on the trail of a fellow explorer gone missing in search of the City of Gold and a strange crystal skull. Even including pretty constant action in the first half of the movie Indie takes a while to get rolling. Aside from the CG this film feels like it was shot 20 years ago with the original. Many people will love the film for this but for whatever it just doesn’t work for me.

The one liners are a little too infrequent and the action scenes somehow don’t feel like a step forward for the series. Personally I would have liked to see a more dark, grittier, and real adventure infused with a smidgen of ridiculousness and humor.
