Second Chance: Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull

indianajones Second Chance: Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull

Here’s an opinion: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is better than the Temple of Doom.

Gasp! Cries of “sacrilege!” ring out. Fights break out on zeppelins. Nazi faces melt off.

Alright, so perhaps the reaction wouldn’t be that strong, but the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones quadrilogy certainly inspires passionate feeling. Mostly negative.

And it’s true: Shia LeBeouf is about as worthy of being Indy’s son as Jar Jar Binks is worthy of Star Wars, there are too many Evil People in SS-style uniforms (because honestly, we’ve been here and done that at this point), and IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO ESCAPE A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION BY HIDING IN A FRIDGE. Oh, and there are aliens, a plot device which pretty much crossed the line from archaeology into Scientology. If there’s a being from on high in the Indy series then it’d better be God, not E.T.
