Ok, here is my review of Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. I won’t kid you: This review contains major spoilers so if you have not already seen the film you may not want to read below the fold because I guarantee I will ruin it for all of you purists.
The newest Indiana Jones installment is impressive on the face of it in its own right because it brings back Harrison Ford in the lead at 70 years old and Steven Spielberg as director, which is no small potatoes. Spielberg made Jaws when he was like 23, and has established the baseline for commercially successful auteurs, so when he deigns to direct a film, we should all take note.
“What is Spielberg up to these days?” is the question film aficionados should ask, and “Crystal Skull” provides an answer.
