Harrison Ford dusts off his infamous brown fedora for another Indiana Jones film, which is once again made by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. The year is 1957, and Indy is on the run from a team of Russian spies led by a rapier-wielding Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett). The Russians want Indy to help them locate an ancient artefact that they believe can be used as the ultimate military weapon. Indy manages a narrow escape, and tries to return to his life as a professor of archaeology, but he soon bumps into a '50s greaser named Mutt (Shia LeBeouf). Mutt's mother, as well as one of Indy's longtime friends, have been captured somewhere in Peru. Mutt and Indy hop on a plane to the country, where they manage to track down both Mutt's mother, Marian (Karen Allen), and Professor Oxley (John Hurt), but they also find themselves surrounded by the same scheming Russians. The Russians have found the artefact they were seeking, but Indy now knows its secret and dangerous powers. With the help of Mutt, Marian, and Oxley, he races to return it to its rightful resting place.
While a bit more grizzled than the last time we saw him cracking his whip in INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE, Ford still manages to bring the right mix of humour and swagger to Indy. Longtime fans are sure to love the many inside jokes and nods to the previous films, as well as the reappearance of some favourite old characters. While CRYSTAL SKULL has the same exotic locales and wild chases of the earlier movies, it definitely sets itself apart with its heavy use of CGI. This fourth instalment of the Indy franchise is immensely enjoyable entertainment that contains some fun surprises along the way.

Cheapest price around...voted Hot :thumbsup:

Absolutely dire film, that almost ruined the three old films by association!

That said, it's a good price. If anyone wants it. And I'm sure many will. So voted hot ;)

Great price for a truly brilliant film. Wasn't a massive fan of the other Indiana Jones films. Always felt they could have been better if they just forgot the script and let everyone have a bit of fun with the film.

You know, maybe ask some of the interns and PAs on the set what they'd like to see and then go with it - I really think 'professional' filmmakers are overrated with their emphasis on 'recognisable character psychologies' and 'realistic narrative arcs' that drive a 'cogent yet exciting story'.

This film ticked all the right boxes for me.

Just seen it on BT Vision for £3.27. Luckily its not something I would want to rewatch, so I havent wasted my money.

Its an enjoyable romp (with a very annoying biker character) if only for the nostalgia but not worth £7 IMHO.

You would have to pay me to watch that dross again.

I absolutely agree. Some people tell me that only a moron with no grasp on what constitutes a good film would think this was at all watchable.

Well in that case, I must be the biggest moron alive because I loved this film and I would bet my entire collection of signed Uwe Boll and Rob Schneider films that if people gave it a chance they'd like it too.

I can confirm FilthandFury is indeed a moron ;-)

Awful film...

Whatever people think about the film, you can't bash Harrison Ford's performance of Indy.

He looked just the same didn't he! A true cinema icon!

I thought it was an OK film, especially if you watched it on the big screen with that great score, and not on a wee computer screen with people standing up in the camera shot ;-)

Maybe like Star Wars, the nostalgia thing is the big issue and people are disappointed that they come out the cinema still aged nearer 40 than 10!

Of course, the other Indy films had such GREAT plots didn't they :roll: Of course not, they were all about the spectacle and atmosphere, so for those in this thread to criticise based on that is just 'moronic' to paraphrase another, rather insulting, poster.

Ford was nothing more than OK for me, he is basically too old for that role now.

The movie was slow, lacked the excellent humour of the earlier films and had a stupid ending.

I think this movie was meant to be a vehicle for LeBoeuf to become a new form of Indy and get the franchise going again.

Cold for me, not just that the movie is IMO poor but also I believe £7 is still too much for us in the UK to pay for DVD's.

Kinda love the other Indy films.

Rotten Tomatoes has reviews saying:

it probably should have remained as a museum piece

we've seen it all before.

it's a typical Lucas misfire.

So much CGI it should have been a cartoon.
on't buy it.

My younger brother tends to be easy-ozy about most movies he sees, he's been like that as a kid. He's a bit of a Lucas fanboy (Star Wars obsessive too). Basically he wouldn't make much of a film reviewer!

I think it says a lot that he hated this film.

Seeing as he liked the originals, and recently got an Xbox 360, I got him this http://www.play.com/Games/Xbox360/4-/8056650/Lego-Indiana-Jones-+-Kung-Fu-Panda-+-Xbox-360-Wireless-Controller/Product.html (loosely related as it has an Indy Lego game in the bundle). :thumbsup:

Since Indy 4 is set in the 50s, it has the themes that are attributed to that period, i.e. the Cold War/Soviets, atomic bombs, rockers/greasers and yes, flying saucers/Roswell aliens. But it's about exploring the Mayan civilisation up the Amazon mostly. VERY Indiana Jones.

The Mummy films are a poor Indy imitation with the worst CGI around. Hardly 'new gen'.

How does Spielberg, or Lucas or Ford, need the money? They made this movie for fun, nostalgia and because of fan demand!

And Die Hard 4 is the worst of the 4 Die Hards. So does anything in your post actually ring true?
