Now only twilight and sunset. Illumination fades; the self annihilates in silhouette. And all (father, son, and spirit) is one.

The eventual arrival of towering screen presence Sean Connery as Dr. Henry Jones, Sr. alongside Harrison Ford as Dr. Henry Jones, Jr. allows for what may be adventure cinema's most potent pairing. [DVD]

A blueprint for how a blockbuster sequel should be done.

...although I personally find 'The Last Crusade' a little less energetic and inspired than 'Raiders,' there is much to enjoy in both pictures. (Blu-ray edition)

May 5, 2008
The chemistry between its two stars is a thing of dreams, but the plot is a tad too episodic to make it a classic.

May 5, 2008
What was conceived as a child's dream of a Saturday matinee serial has evolved into a moving excursion into religious myth.
May 5, 2008
Despite strong acting (the slapstick energy between Ford and Connery is wasted), obligatory chases and stunts and splendid art direction, the virtuoso technique evident in every frame remains formulaic -- unaccompanied by revelation, epiphany or surprise.

Spielberg's direction is typically manipulative, but the stars and megabucks spent maintain our interest.
May 5, 2008
The fast pace and force-fed wisecracks are as seamless as ever, but rarely has audience laughter sounded as hollow.
May 4, 2008
The third, most Freudian and weakest of the three chapters of the Indiana Jones saga that began so well in 1981 with Raiders of the Lost Ark, but then gradually declined.

Jeffrey Boam's script dabbles with themes of neglect and reconciliation, but there's nothing ponderous about the duo's near death scrapes and light-hearted tussels over the same blonde Fräulein.
February 16, 2006
A very disappointing sequel that's just too jokey for its own good. Lacks the intense thrills of the first two.

Harrison Ford overacts. Everytime he says "dad," I want to cringe.
