Y si pensabas que Lucas y Spielberg no tenían nada más en la recámara para poder terminar esta fantástica trilogía, estabas equivocado. Para muchos la mejor de las tres no sin falta de razón, porque no solo tenemos los mismo elementos fantásticos que ya nos encontramos en las dos previas, sino que además ahora añadimos la gran química de Harrison Ford y Sean Connery como padre e hijo que no pueden entenderse el uno al otro. Es de apreciar también los toques al pasado de Indiana que ayudan a perfilar aun más a este personaje y sin duda su aventura es la más épica de todas: la búsqueda del Grial.

Ask yourself this. What happens when you take Han Solo and James Bond and put them in a movie together? You get "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!"

After two successful big-budget starring vehicles, we finally get an origin story for Indiana Jones. Of course, that's largely to facilitate the addition of a new supporting character (Sean Connery in a wonderful casting as Indy's long lost father, who we'll get to in just a moment) but that extra layer of nostalgia, wrapped around a property that's deeply nostalgic in the first place, manages to avoid numerous pitfalls and serve as an effective prologue. River Phoenix performs especially well as the young Jones, expertly wearing Harrison Ford's mannerisms throughout the long callback, and somewhere along the way we get a worthwhile genesis for the grown-up version's affinity for leather jackets and fedoras.

Once the story jumps ahead to a more familiar era (if not precisely the present), it's full speed ahead on the hunt for the mythical holy grail, a lifelong obsession for the father and recent fixation of the third reich. Soon reunited, both Jones boys dance through precarious situations and near-misses in the history books, a full battalion of Nazi soldiers nipping at their heels, before drawing close to the prize. Ford and Connery are dynamic together, boiling down a complicated father-son relationship to a series of glares, grins and grunts. They alternate between bickering testily and slapping each other on the back in camaraderie, and I honestly can't say which makes for a more entertaining watch. There's depth, too, a stinging blend of long-simmering resentment and earnest care for one another, which often bubbles up just in time to enhance the plot's heaviest moments.

Naturally, it simply wouldn't be an Indiana Jones movie without big action sets (in which the series somehow manages to one-up itself yet again) or boatloads of witty retorts and punchy one-liners, and those two essential elements combine to give the film a loose, fun-loving quality without compromising any of the more serious moments. All this without going too far over the top, as we saw more than once in the mildly underwhelming Temple of Doom and borderline-disastrous Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It's well-written and purposeful, successfully intense and humorous, an in-the-wheelhouse serial-styled adventure that spans several continents before confronting superstition and cracking several dusty, life-threatening riddles on the path to a biblical treasure. Indy probably should've left well-enough alone, because this chapter is essentially impossible to top.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade definitely brings one of Hollywood's best film series back up a little from it's predecessor giving an amazing adventure and story. Performances from Harrison Ford and Sean Connery are both spectacular and it's definitely something a lot of audiences can enjoy.

A triumphant return of The Man With No Memory Of His Own Religious Escapades, with fatherly wisdom in tow from the equally matched Connery. Though Raiders remains the favorite, the undeniable breadth and cunning of Crusade's stakes make this entry the best.

the third 'indiana jones'' energy is borne from a surge of a histrionic premise, satisfying chase scenes and comically theatrical chemistry between ford and connery. while it skimps on methodical pacing in favour of benevolently letting the charismatic plot drive itself, it still impresses itself as a well-oiled product of thrills and comedy with sincere and surreal emotional stakes.

Better than TEMPLE OF DOOM, but not better than RAIDERS. Sean Connery is a great addition to the film, and he actually makes the film better as his role as Indy's father. But this film is definitely ranked alongside some of the greatest action/adventure films ever, and like RAIDERS, it has one dazzling action sequence after another. There is also a real sense of adventure and wonderment in this film- something few filmmakers are actually able to do well. The 4 INDIANA JONES films are based off Saturday matinee serials in the 50's, and as usual, Lucas's wild imagination and Spielberg's amazing directing talent pull this one off almost effortlessly.

Now this is how you redeem yourself. A film as good as the first. A first class epic adventure a joy to watch .

The best Indiana Jones movie. It doesn't what Raiders did well and makes it even better. The pairing of Harrison Ford And Sean Connery is one of cinemas best duos.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade concludes this epic adventure trilogy in stunning fashion, by implementing the comedic touch and stunning action of Raiders, while also having Harrison Ford and Sean Connery portraying wonderfully as father and son.

Sometimes too funny but still a great film.

"Fun direction, top notch casting including Sean Connery, and epic story, add those together and you'll get one of the best adventurous sequels ever filmed in history! The action sequences are explosive and fun, the music is inspirational and iconic, the humor is laugh out loud funny, and this is simply the greatest film Steven Spielberg has ever created. However there are continuity errors but thank goodness for the PG-13 rating it proves that it can be intense and fun at the same time. I think this is the adventurous film anyone should see for it's the type of fun you're looking for."

Father and son travel the world killing Nazis

In my opinion it may not be as good as Raiders of The Lost Ark was, but the Last Crusade is still one of the greatest adventure movies ever made.
And personally I just can't help but add in to my review, that casting Sean Connery as Indy's dad was a pure stroke of genius. The reason being, is that every time, he and Harrison Ford argue, it makes me break out in laughter, because it is just so funny! Those scenes might even be the greatest, and dare I say, the funniest moments in the entire Indiana Jones series.

Improving on Temple of Doom and almost living up to Raiders, Last Crusade is a fun action adventure film. The pairing of Harrison Ford and Sean Connery was an act of genius, and the two have great chemistry together. The action is once again fun and intense, especially the entire scene with the tank. Overall, this one of if not the best movie of 1989.

The best film of my childhood ...
February 6, 2018
An excellent film in every sense. Action, comedy, compelling characters, adventure, and great dialogue. There is a reason this film is a classic. I'd be hard pressed to choose which of the trilogy is the best (lets pretend Crystal Skull doesn't exist). Just a fantastic and fun film.

Turned out to be the first Indiana Jones movie I saw, and I was instantly hooked. Great by itself, but ever better with the others.

Solid sequel, great action & adventure

8.8/10 Though it's a little too similar to Raiders, The Last Crusade is still a exceptionally fun adventure, and I would highly recommend it.
