Movie Review: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull


My Rating: 2Stars

This evening I saw the movie “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” at Broadway Cinema, Cyberport, Hong Kong.

In two words, Simply disapointing. May be is it because I had high expectation going into the movie or I just love the Indiana Jones series of movies: “Raiders of the Lost Ark“, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” and “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade“.

It could also be because Harrison Ford is just too old for the character. They prepared us for more Indiana Jones movies to come by introducing the son of Indiana Jones, Mutt Williams (played by Shia LaBeouf).

There was rumors that this episode of the Indiana Jones series was delayed due to George Lucas not liking what the writers had came up with, so he re-wrote the entire movie. I think this is one of Lucas’ weakest creation, I wonder if the original version would have been better.

This version of the movie did not have enough, typical Indiana Jones action as one come to expect. The sword fight scene was very unbelievable and anticipated.
