Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Review
19 Years after the release of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Steven Spielberg directed the fourth instalment, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Once you get past the initial reintroduction, it’s obvious that this fourth film in the Indy series really has no idea where to go. Except for the opening – which literally starts the film off with a bang – and a couple of dazzling chase sequences, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” is about as unfocused and meandering as the title itself. Considering the time period of the 1950s and the space race with the Soviets (the new baddy army now that the Nazis are kaput), science fiction elements don’t automatically ruin this film but their inclusion is just sloppy and in turn bringing Indiana Jones out of the 1940s, they’ve lost the reason for why they brought him into existence. Not a bad film, but not a brilliant one either.
