Some people blame the silly plot on this movie's low score. Personally I blame the bad acting and Harrison Ford's utter boredom.

Second time watching this last film in the series. Really miss the characters from "Last Crusade", the best ever. Love all the Indiana Jones movies. Lots of fun. Harrison Ford still cool, but a little hard to take him on the back of the motorcycle.... Some scenes and dialogue reminescent of his relationship with his father (played by Sean Connery -- my all time favorite actor) in "... The Last Crusade"!! But still entertaining and fun to see Marion back, although the son's character a little annoying.

There's little negative that I can say that hasn't already been said about this movie. Cheesy script. Lack of suspension of disbelief. The general feeling of a petty nostalgia grab. It's all been said before. When the movie was initially released, I wondered "Would this have worked if it was released 4 years after 'Last Crusade', with a slightly different cast and a somewhat younger Indy"? The only answer I could come to is a resounding "no". The move from religious/mythological fantasy to science fiction stood out for me as an odd choice for the plot of an Indian Jones movie. The crazy stunts were beyond the crazy stunts we've seen in the other Indiana Jones movies, which says a lot. Also the plot felt too corny and inauthentic. Mutt's character was too cliche, to the point at which you guessed who he was 45 seconds after he appears on screen.

It wasn't an extra-bad movie. I would label it an 'extra medium' movie. Average as far as movies go, far below average as far as the series goes.

Original title "Indiana Jones and the Shameless Cash Grab." I like to pretend that this, like "The Godfather III" and the second Star Wars trilogy, never happened.

Not the best in the series. Not highly recommended. Note: Sex out of Wedlock is a sin.

I had forgotten there was Comedy in this series. Cate Blanchett's accent pretty bad. Enjoyable entertainment overall.

I saw these creatures for real one day on their spaceship while orbiting our planet. I just hope humans don't turn into them, I mean like the Zika virus does the same thing to the human skull, like the Protruding bone out the back of the skull. Makes you think? I think they live on Alpha Centauri sun B, Their planet has a very long name kinda like you sing it; not just pronounce the name like we do with our planet Earth. You can't pronounce the name of their planet without singing it. Weird huh?

I wish I could unsee this movie. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was just so good, that I wish the series had left on a high note. Let's face it, Harrison Ford is just too old, and I would like to forget ever seeing this one. I heard they're making a 5th? Ugghhh
