-Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (PG-13)

by Dr. D ~

Paramount Pictures, May 21, 2008, Directed by: Steven Spielberg, 122 minutes, Cast: Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones), Cate Blanchett (Irina Spalko), Karen Allen (Marion Ravenwood), Ray Winstone (George “Mac” McHale), John Hurt (Professor Oxley), Jim Broadbent (Dean Charles Stanforth), Shia LaBeouf (Mutt), Igor Jijikine (Col. Dovchenko).

 image The good part: Jones is back with flair even in his older age. Marion Ravenwood, played by Karen Allen once more, brings a confident familiarity to the film. All the action and adventure of the earlier films are there. Also, it is really good to see Indiana make a real commitment in the end. Plus, the surprise that Marion drops on him adds a new dimension to Indiana’s character.

Now for the not so good: Cate Blanchett’s ‘Russian’ accent. Plus, Steven Spielberg’s penchant for making this Indiana Jones movie a remake of “Close Encounters” also–a twofer. The alien connection just doesn’t work for me. I really did miss the religious themes and connections which characterized the previous three films. Oh well, it was fun anyway!           *Top
