STEVEN SPIELBERG and GEORGE LUCAS bring you the greatest adventurer of all time in “a nonstop thrill ride” (Richard Corliss, TIME) that’s packed with “sensational, awe-inspiring spectacles” (Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES). Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull finds Indy (Harrison Ford) trying to outrace a brilliant and beautiful agent (Cate Blanchett) for the mystical, all-powerful crystal skull of Akator. Teaming up with a rebellious young biker (Shia LaBeouf) and his spirited original love Marion (Karen Allen), Indy takes you on an action-packed adventure in the exciting tradition of the classic Indiana Jones movies!
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

Suitable for the whole family.
The movie was bit of a stretch, though. The plot, for example, suffered from multiple loose ends.
SPOILER ALERT #1: The show was not as good as first 2 Indiana Jones films. The 'fridge' incident (you'll know it when it happens), for instance, was flat-out unbelievable, because all the bouncing around would have killed anyone. Yet, Indy walked away apparently unscratched. I didn't believe it and, for me, that obvious problem tainted how I viewed the rest of the film - which contained additional problems.
SPOILER ALERT #2: An implied message in the story was: "Stay dumb, instead of pursue education." I didn't like that. Yet, characters where, essentially, punished for their curiosity.
SPOILER ALERT #3: The part where the 'big mystery' was supposed to be explained didn't explain much and seemed out-of-place.
So, although, this show would probably be dissatisfying, for those who pay attention, the movie did have some entertaining qualities.
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.
"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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
