Although it is very nice to see Ford back as the world's most interesting professor of Archaeology, 'The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull' lacks the heart and soul of its predecessors, with uninspired, CGI-fuelled action sequences that fail to deliver any thrills and a very forced feeling between the characters. Most of all, however, it's the complete lack of believability pervading the entire film that has the most devastating effect, with the last act really solidifying the sentiment by feeling not only totally out of place in the world of Indiana Jones, but like it belongs in a completely different dimension. As a result, the whole affair feels almost like a parody of the previous entries into the franchise and will only serve as a nostalgic reminder of just how good the original trilogy is.

The last installment in the series of our beloved archaeologist ends in a fiasco. The story is all over the place,trying to blend different genres together. The writers tried to change the mistakes of the past writers but they created a story that feels awkward to say the least. The cast if filled with talent and wonderful people but lets face it, Indy was not made to fight anyone else but Nazis! Contains some really memorable moments but honestly with everything I'm seeing in these movies I start thinking that Spielberg is an overrated director.

I've only started watching the Indiana Jones films recently and overall I've loved them, but when it came to Kingdom of the Crystal Skull I was nervous because I've had 9 years of hearing nothing but negativity about it. Perhaps it's because I went into this movie with rock bottom expectations that I came out really enjoying it! Yes there are some silly moments but the previous three had silly moments as well! This isn't the best film in the franchise but I don't think it's the worst either, that goes to Temple of Doom. This movie is dumb, sure, but it's also hella fun! I will be revisiting it again!

Sadly, this movie is so bad and so disappointing. Despite Harrison Ford looking great for his age, this movie failed on just about every expectation that I had. I am not a hater of the idea of the crystal skulls, but the script and direction for this movie was just pure garbage. Also, the effects looked horrible too! Don't even get me started on Shia LaBitch!

A well balanced, adventurous film that continues to ride on the same Indiana Jones formula as its predecessors. All be it somewhat less. Topped off with several sweeping and terrifically epic action set pieces.

Wile visually imperative, It's bland, boring and a HUGE let down to the original trilogy. Stay away from this and go watch any of the first 3 indy films.

Even when he's phoning it in, Spielberg is twice as exciting as the next director, and his usual visual flair carries the movie, even as the plot escapes into the hokey. Reflective of a wider trend in Hollywood towards an extraterrestrial and big-budget kind of sci-fi-a trend, of course, kicked off by the early work of Spielberg and his co-producer, Lucas-Indy IV gives up the ghosts and ghouls and spiritualism of the original trilogy for alien technology and the nuclear era. We're somewhere new, no longer in the old world of Egypt or India, and we're as much aliens there as our crystal-skulled visitors. Gone our the ancient religious texts, displaced by the gods of CGI, and the movie suffers for it, overly stuffed with goofy moments and lazy choices. Yet, nevertheless, the ride is enjoyable, even if a little bumpy with bad props and sloppy set design.

Loved all of them. Even this one!

The adventure and action thrills are still present, but it lacks serious substance and the cast does not really work out all that well in the end.

storyul a fost ok in primele doua acte. cg prost din pacate in multe scene, ma scotea din scena. payofful nu a existat la final. mai multe linii erau in film ca sa puna pe harrison intr-un quotable shot. am fost foarte bucuros ca au adus-o pe marion inapoi , dar nu au facut nimic cu ea, a fost filler. practic sentimentele lor nu sunt explorate, este doar un action movie. ceea ce lasa mult de dorit.

It's the Phantom Menace all over again.

Not as good as its precedents, but still watchable. Seeing Harrison returning as Indiana Jones is always welcome.

This is a great action movie with all the great classic indy moments that we have all grown to love. From beginning to end there is no room to breathe as you are rocketed through one action scene after another for two hours

what a master piece, just the movement of camera, music and elegant amout of talking makes this movie a universal gem. It has everything for everyone and it really delivers a great story.

Lacking all semblance of fun or charm from the oldies, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is weird and boring.
½ May 30, 2017
Easily the worse Indiana Jones movie so far
