Horrid. I only made it through the first 15 minutes before I had to turn it off. Including gruesome violence, it was clearly not made for children, but I can't imagine anyone but a small child being amused by the slapstick comedy effort. This movie is abysmal.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has a similar plot line to the previous films in the franchise, but it still gives the audience the adventure and thrills that we've been waiting for since the 3rd film. Harrison Ford's return in the title role is more than welcome to everyone and he still gives the type of performance we all love. Shia LaBeouf and Cate Blanchett also both gives good performances as new characters in the franchise and overall, the film is what we wanted to see.
Bewilderingly, Indy's short term memory of his own fantastical beliefs initially gets the better of him as he drags himself, both in body and spirit, though a jungle race against an insidious cadre of actual believers, toward an era-appropriate chariot of the gods.
Took me 10 years to finally see this movie. I can sum it up like this: The Good - Harrison Ford and Karen Allen. The Bad - Shia Labeouf and Cate Blanchett. The Ugly - Terrible CGI and too much green screen action with obvious digital backgrounds. Verdict: Would never watch again.
spielberg's genius in crafting a brand of entertainment made for a large breadth of audience is never more eminent in the fourth 'indiana jones'. sly allusions to the past films, a powerful sense of dramatic spectacle and witty comedic timing increase the relish conveyed to fans and non-fans of the franchise alike. the series' past successes dictate 'crystal skull' to rise to the timeless grand style for which was expected of the film.
The all time dumbest movie I have ever seen after Into the Woods.

Although not as good as its predecessors, Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls still has the wit and humor of the originals, the action sequences still dazzle and seeing Harrison Ford again was stunning and welcoming.
Harrison Ford is still just as enthusiastically game in the title role as ever, and there is still a thrilling sense of adventure to be found, but the twists and mechanics of this new story show not only a descent into the realm of cartoonish CGI, but overplayed fantasy.
