Though the plot elements are certainly familiar, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull still delivers the thrills and Harrison Ford's return in the title role is more than welcome.

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.
Crystal Skull isn't bad -- there are a few dazzling sequences, and a couple of good performances -- but the unprecedented blend of comedy and action that made the movies so much more fun than any other adventure series is mostly gone.
There's nothing but entertainment value here.
The action is the movie's raison d'être, of course, but the setups are wittier than the payoffs.
Crystal Skull is a fun ride, but if we have to wait 19 years for the next one, that's OK by me.
Indy isn't boning up on Babylonian texts; he's leafing through the Weekly World News.
It's adequate, but not exceptional, and while that might be enough for any other movie, this is an Indiana Jones movie, and that can't help but be a little disappointing.
Crystal Skull carries its legacy with a sort of "I still got it" bravado that makes you smile at its AARP filmmakers rather than pity them.
While there's no denying that Crystal Skull succeeds as a summer popcorn flick, it won't follow in Raiders' footsteps by becoming a classic audiences will want to watch again and again for years to come.
Except for one grossly offensive aspect -- done twice --Crystal Skull is everything Indy fans want. It's a big, noisy, entertaining escape from reality. It makes no sense whatsoever and who cares?
Everything happens so dizzyingly fast and with such a dazzling disregard for any kind of realism it sort of doesn't matter that the plot is a silly rambling nonsense or that Harrison Ford is now 312.
Good special effects, an entertaining story and nostalgia... [Full review in Spanish]
I have finally seen it and have mixed feelings. It just doesn't have some of the old Indy magic. The story is even more far fetched than usual and maybe it's a bit overloaded with CGI as well. Cate Blanchett's character is a bit OTT almost to the point of feeling like a comic book character. Overall still an entertaining film but not up there with the first three.
A disappointing chapter that suffers from a lame interaction between the characters, an inconsistent plot that makes no sense and action scenes that are never memorable, relying too much on CGI and never managing to create any sense of real danger, with a terrible ending.
This was a very high quality film. Unfortunately the cheese factor was way over the top for me. So much so that it was on the verge of a cartoon. The other issue with this film (and many other to follow these days), is that the CG was well done, but very unnecessary. I am no longer surprised by anything done on a computer. Once you see one CG creature or effect you are no longer surprised by all the others. Let?s bring back some of the old school film techniques like actual stuntmen. This adds so much more realism back in the picture (way to go Christopher Nolan for doing this in ?The Dark Knight?).
An older Indy but the same feel at least to me. A solid adventure film in the old school style of cinema from Lucas and Speilbergs youth.
