Product Description

Amazon.ca

Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett, Shia LeBeouf. Ford delights once again in a fourth turn as the adventurous, fedora-wearing archaeologist. After a daring escape, Indy's on the run from Russian spies who want him to locate an ancient artifact for use in a supreme military weapon. Nearly 20 years after riding his last Crusade, Harrison Ford makes a welcome return as archaeologist/relic hunter Indiana Jones in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, an action-packed fourth installment that's, in a nutshell, less memorable than the first three but great nostalgia for fans of the series. Producer George Lucas and screenwriter David Koepp (War of the Worlds) set the film during the cold war, as the Soviets--replacing Nazis as Indy's villains of choice and led by a sword-wielding Cate Blanchett with black bob and sunglasses--are in pursuit of a crystal skull, which has mystical powers related to a city of gold. After escaping from them in a spectacular opening action sequence, Indy is coerced to head to Peru at the behest of a young greaser (Shia LaBeouf) whose friend--and Indy's colleague--Professor Oxley (John Hurt) has been captured for his knowledge of the skull's whereabouts. Whatever secrets the skull holds are tertiary; its reveal is the weakest part of the movie, as the CGI effects that inevitably accompany it feel jarring next to the boulder-rolling world of Indy audiences knew and loved. There's plenty of comedy, delightful stunts--ants play a deadly role here--and the return of Raiders love interest Karen Allen as Marion Ravenwood, once shrill but now softened, giving her ex-love bemused glances and eye-rolls as he huffs his way to save the day. Which brings us to Ford: bullwhip still in hand, he's a little creakier, a lot grayer, but still twice the action hero of anyone in film today." --Ellen A. Kim

"Whoever finds [the crystal skull] will control the greatest natural force the world has ever known."

The above (spoken with a Russian accent) comes from this science fiction adventure movie, the fourth film in the Indiana Jones franchise.

It was created by George Lucas and directed by Steven Spielberg.

This movie was released nineteen years after the previous film (the fantastic "The Last Crusade," 1989). It acknowledges the age of its star, Harrison Ford (who plays Indiana Jones) by being set in 1957. (Ford was 64 in this movie.)

This movie also pays tribute to sci-fi B-movies of the 1950s, pitting Indy against Soviet Agents who are searching for a telepathic crystal skull. The Head Soviet Agent is Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett, who gives a good performance).

Indy is aided by his former partner, Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen) and her son Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf). Marion appears in the last half of this movie.

To keep continuity with the three previous Indiana Jones movies, traditional stunt work was used instead of computer-generated doubles.

I personally enjoyed this movie. Yes, there are some absurd scenes (liked the "nuked the fridge" scene) but overall it was a good movie with, what I thought, was an important message. I especially liked the fact that this movie gave brief homage to Indy's father, Henry Jones Sr. (played by the first 007, Sean Connery) and to his late archaeological academic colleague Marcus Brody (Denholm Elliott, 1922-1992). We even get to see very briefly the Lost Ark (which was the relic Indy sought in the sensational blockbuster, "Raiders of the Lost Ark," 1981).

Although this film is no "Raiders" or "Last Crusade," it does have its moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hennery Jones ... Junior, part time teacher Oct. 25 2008
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Wow it is all there, the formula the action the mystery and the frillier actors. If that is not enough we have new actors of great caliber and some new one-liners to repeat to friends and family. Everything that made the original Indiana Jones films has been intensified.

Karen Allen's character is just as cut and feisty as ever. It takes a couple of double takes to realize that Col. Dr. Irina Spalko is the Academy Award winning Cate Blanchett in a Natasha outfit. I could go on but it is time for you to see for yourself.

My favorite scene is where Indy is being showered down, hosed off and scrubbed. Watch closely as he is being scrubbed in a private part of his anatomy and has to make a broom adjustment.
--------------------------------------
It is the height of the Cold War. The Ruskies are looking for an upper hand. Naturally, they look for the super natural or inter-dimensional physic advantage. In addition, of course they get Dr. Hennery Jones Jr. (much older Harrison Ford) to unwittingly play into their hands. With the help of a young sidekick Mutt (Shia LaBeouf), he must find a crystal skull in an effort to free his kidnapped associate Henry Oxley (John Hurt). In the process, he has to navigate between two independent women Col. Dr. Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett) and Marion Ravenswood (Karen Allen.)

Watch the movie to find out the mystery of the scull and if Indy, oops Hennery Jones Jr. will succeed or stick his fedora in it. Bring your ant spray.

I have to admit I waited for Blu-ray so I cannot compare to non Blu-ray versions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic Hero Returns Sept. 10 2008
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
They might have gotten a little lazy with this sequel but this film was alright. The opening scene is incredible, as we return to the warehouse last seen at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Here we see Indiana Jones for the first time since Last Crusade: Older, Wiser, and more mature. But the man can still use his whip. The thing with Crystal Skull that I really loved was that this is a different Indy. If you go in to this movie expecting to see some crazy stunts like in the previous films then you won't be satisfied. Indiana has settled down. He is in his 60's. We know what he is capable of. We know how tough he is. They didn't have to show him be the tough as nails archaeologist that we came to love because we are so familiar with him. What Spielberg did this time around was have an Indy that is more in the role of Henry Jones Sr from Last Crusade.

In a way, we have watched Indiana grow up over the course of the four films. We've seen him as the young hero and now we see him as the older hero. Spielberg said that he was making this movie for the fans. He didn't come out to make this better than Raiders. He came out to bring us Indy one last time. To show that just like all of us, Indy has grown up with the times, but he still has it in him for one last adventure.

Shia Labeouf was great as Mutt. I honestly wouldn't mind seeing a spin off with just him (maybe). Marion is always great and the chemistry between her and Indy is perfect. Cate Blanchett did a great job as Irina Spalko, she was beautiful, and a great choice for the part. But the true star of the movie is again Shia LeBouf. He so far does well in every movie he is in, but in this movie he does even better. He is funny, entertaining, and is believable as the slightly soft kid pretending to be tough.
