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.
