Product Description


The third episode in Steven Spielberg's rousing Indiana Jones saga, this film recaptures the best elements of Raiders of the Lost Ark while exploring new territory with wonderfully satisfying results. Indy is back battling the Nazis, who have launched an expedition to uncover the whereabouts of the Holy Grail. And it's not just Indy this time--his father (played with great acerbic wit by Sean Connery, the perfect choice) is also involved in the hunt. Spielberg excels at the kind of extended action sequences that top themselves with virtually every frame; the best one here involves Indy trying to stop a Nazi tank from the outside while his father is being held within. For good measure, Spielberg reveals (among other things) how Indy got his hat, the scar on his chin, and his nickname (in a prologue that features River Phoenix as the young Indiana). --Marshall Fine

2.0 out of 5 stars Flawed... April 5 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I'm sure I'll get it for this, but this is my least favorite of the three Indy flicks. I felt that this film was largely an re-hash of the far-superior "Raiders of the Lost Ark."
This one has the same ideas as the first -- religious artifact, good vs. bad theme, nazis, and so forth. Adding Sean Connery does nothing except turn most of the movie to farce, and I wasn't happy with the film's treatment of Marcus Brody either. And really, what WERE they thinking with the inclusion of the nazi-babe Dr. Elsa? She's even blonder and (in my opinion, dumber) than Willie from the second film.

I'm not saying that it's a terrible film. There are some nice moments, such as the final scene with Indy and his father ("Indiana...let it go" ) but it's definitely not a very original film.
Say what you will about the "Temple of Doom," but at least in that movie Spielburg and Lucas weren't afraid to try something different and opt for a darker, more original storyline. The point of moviemaking is not to duplicate a successful formula, but to come up with a new one. I'd even have to say that the Indiana Jones "Fate of Atlantis" computer game was better written than this.

3.0 out of 5 stars WEAKEST OF THE INDY MOVIES July 15 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This Indy movie was weak--not much of an action film but more of a comedy. If anything, though, see it. HF is good, so is Connery. But you just might get sick at the fact Indy and his Dad were with the same woman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recaptures that Raiders magic, March 30 2005
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
It may just be coincidence but this time Harrison Ford that was a carpenter is not Dr. Indiana Jones (Junior) and his last crusade (until the next film) is to obtain a cup of a carpenter.

Even though this film can stand on its own, it can be more fully understood if you watch "Raiders of the lost Ark" first.

Once again we start out with a young Jones trying to save an artifact from pillagers. This lets us know of his heroic energy and introduces his father Professor Henry Jones (Sean Connery) and his obsession with the Holy Grail, even to the exclusion of his relationship with Junior.

Now grown Dr. Indiana Jones gives a class and explains that Archeology is a pretty strait forward science and not some search for legends. He receives a mysterious piece of post.

He is then approached by group of rich people that are in search of the Grail. It turns out that their top researcher has disappeared. Yep it is Professor Henry Jones. What can Indiana do but go looking for his father. He is accounted by his best friend who runs a museum Dr. Marcus Brody (Denholm Elliottt) as they team up with the last person to see his father Dr. Elsa Schneider (Alison Doody.) He gets a final warning "Do not trust anybody."

Will he find his father?

If he dies what will they have to talk about?

Does the Grail really exist?

Who are the mysterious people following him?

One of my favorite scenes is where Dr. Jones disguised in a German uniform bumps into Hitler (Michael Sheard of Star Wars fame).

Have fun watching this great film with the banter between Hennery and Junior. And remember "do not trust anybody."

5.0 out of 5 stars Tjhe third film is also the best!!!!!!!! June 26 2004
By Shane
Format:VHS Tape
A huge improvement over The Temple of Doom,The last Crusade is not only better(FAR BETTER)than the second,it is also in my opinion a even better film than Raiders of the Lost Ark!!!!!!! The story is the best of the three,the action scenes are terrific,and the acting,especially from Harrison ford and Sean Connery,who steals every scene he's in as Indy's Dad,is amazing.Overall,if you liked the first film and hated the second,The Last Crusade will please you more than the second and maybe more than the first! Note:Despite the PG-13 Rating of this film(the first two were both PG),this film is not nearly as graphic as the second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping Up With The Joneses May 24 2004
Format:VHS Tape
"The quest for the grail is not Archeology. It's a race against evil. If it is captured by the Nazis, the armies of darkness will march all over the face of the Earth."
- Henry Jones Sr. reminds his whip wielding son how important the last crusade for the Cup of Christ is in "Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade".
The third entry in the adventures of Indiana Jones, aptly titled "Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade", is a lot light hearted than "The Temple of Doom" and its dark heart, and is more in the spirit of "Raiders of the Lost Ark" but can't outmatch it.
Three years after the events in "Raiders", Indiana Jones is on a quest to find his missing father after finding out he's been abducted by sinister forces. For most of his life, Indiana's father, has been researching and trying to locate The Holy Grail. If Indiana finds his dad he also may have found The Holy Grail.
After Seventeen summers, since its 5/24/89 release, the film is still fun to watch. The cast is great, especially Sean Connery as Henry Jones Sr. I can't imagine anyone else for the role. The chemistry between Connery and Harrison Ford is what makes the "Last Crusade" a stand-out crowd pleaser. Denholm Elliot expands on his role from "Raiders" as Marcus Brody, adding some goofy comic relief as the bookish curator out of his element. Of course it isn't an "Indiana Jones" film without Harrison Ford as the title role. This a classic example of a film character that is so legendary, that it would be fruitlessly idiotic to have the character be recast with another actor. In other words I really can't see Tom Selleck as Dr. Jones, and if there isn't a fourth adventure with Indiana Jones it would suck big time, but I could live with it.
"Last Crusade" does have some really great action sequences.
