[Speilberg] is no longer a young director, and nowhere is that more apparent than in his approach to this Indy.
| Original Score: 2/5
The pace is a bit lethargic, and the film also suffers from the usual Spielberg Achilles' heel of many, many false endings.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Harrison Ford played a passable Indiana Jones, but he seemed to have lost his joie de vivre ... although it is an enjoyable fast-moving adventure movie ... I'd seen it before.
If you want to wonder who built two twin roads through the Amazon, or how come Indy and his troop survive not one but three trips over the waterfall without a bruise, then go to another movie.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull lives up to its hype and offers plenty of classic Indy moments.
| Original Score: 4/5
The energy on display is impressive, even if Spielberg's suggestion that a fifth Indie adventure is a distinct possibility is more a cause for concern than celebration.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
While we can never go home again completely, 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' reminds us of why we fell in love with Indiana Jones in the first place.
| Original Score: 3/4
I'm going to get this out of the way first, it's not as good as the first three. However, it's a fun, entertaining romp, and there are some classic Indy moments in this.
With at least eight screenwriters hired to work on different drafts over the years ... it's a minor miracle that the finished film works as well as it does.
| Original Score: B
You sense that if Lucas had his way, Harrison Ford would have measured Shia LeBeouf's midiclorian levels.
| Original Score: 5/10
Aside from the sustained invention of the jungle sequences, much of the movie feels like a recreation of something we've already seen, like the Vegas version of the Eiffel Tower.
For action fans it's precious metal with a pedigree.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Indy's indomitable, of course, charismatic and clever, but he's surrounded by worn-out emblems and gestures toward a new decade, the cold war and the rise of corporate conformity.
... bored me to the point that I really wanted to get up and leave the theater.
| Original Score: 78/100
I have to admit this is probably the smartest entry in the series.
Wry humor, kitchy dialogue, fast-paced action, seamless special F/X, solid acting and homage to its original are all good reasons to see [it]. I rate it the best of the sequels
Fun, entertaining, genuinely amusing, and made with an abundance of what appears to be honest-to-god warmth, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull is a worthy addition to one of the great movie franchises.
They had 19 years since the last Indiana Jones movie to come up with something truly exciting and fresh, but I feel there's a certain laziness and cynicism in this latest adventure.
Tiene todo lo que tiene que tener: excelentes efectos visuales, buen ritmo, sentido del humor y un montón de disparates divertidos. Y por supuesto a Harrison Ford en el papel de su vida.
| Original Score: 3/5
...the dash and derring-do are as kinetic and ebullient as ever...
