Audience Reviews for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

  • Jan 01, 2018
    This film is indeed adventurous, dark and exciting, but it's exceedingly long, and Kate Capshaw as Willie Scott is more annoying than your typical damsel in distress. Could be better.

    Simultaneously both more grim and more silly than the Indiana Jones films either side of it, The Temple of Doom was my favourite of the series as a kid. As an adult though, it seems it is objectively the worst movie in the trilogy, but damn if there isn't a lot of memorable parts to love about it.

    Not as good as the first, but those are huge shoes to fill as the first film was so amazing. This sequel takes Dr. Jones to India where he seeks holy stones and a village's missing children. Still a good story conceived by George Lucas and directed by Steven Spielberg. When I was a kid I was always grossed out by the dinner scene.

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is fun, thrilling and has the stuff we know and love from the previous film. Fans might be put off by its dark tone and goofiness, but I love this film!
