Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Not worth the 20 years wait... - Papillon

Steven Spielberg is back as director of a sequel that could have been amazing. I mean, who isn't a complete fan of the great Indiana Jones? So after a wait of 19 years and actually no clues of a sequel coming, the buzz around Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was great.

Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford), much aged but still resourceful and handsome is kidnapped by the Russians, led by big brained Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett). They are looking for an artefact that would give them complete control over the western world.

After escaping them, he is asked by young petuland Mutt Williams (Shia LaBoeuf) to help free his mother and one of Indiana's very old friends, Professor Oxley (John Hurt). That sets them on a quest in South America to find the Crystal Skull before the Russians do.

It is great to see Indiana Jones in action again and to meet some old ones from the past. The movie is action packed, very fast paced and Indiana Jones is as good as ever. Unfortunately a lot of the action is way over the top and so unrealistic it becomes silly. And Indiana Jones and aliens just don't mix! It's like putting tomatoes in a fruit salad, it's just wrong!

So, in conclusion, you have to watch this movie just because it is Indiana Jones after all! But do not have too much expectation or you will be disappointed.
