The film as a whole feels like an insignificant episode in Indy's life, instead of an influential chapter in the evolution of the action genre.

Speaks to a bravery to experiment which Temple of Doom embraced one last time.
May 25, 2020
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom may have some impressive features but it's nowhere near as classic as Raiders or the Last Crusade.
September 18, 2018
Some tonal miscues and a clumsy love story can't derail action this good, this breath-taking.
February 16, 2018
The strangest... most broken... most tonally discordant of the Indiana Joneses, and for all these reasons it is the one that feels the most like its own thing.
June 24, 2015
Spielberg has come up with another rousing piece of entertainment.
May 26, 2014
This movie is batshit insane.
December 26, 2013
With the action nonstop there is no time for mere acting, much less for a coherent plot.
August 21, 2013
A fun and worthy sequel that really continues the harrowing but exciting exploits of Indiana Jones...
October 15, 2012
an unbelievably crass, unpleasant, horrific picture
January 2, 2011
More gore, gross-outs than the other Indy blockbusters.

Again you will savor the Indiana Jones schizophrenia: by day a bow-tied, bespectacled archaeologist; by night a resourceful swaggerer, whom Ford brings to life as a modern blend of Bogie and the Duke, with just a glint of misfit psychopathy in his eyes.

It's not the darker turn that makes The Temple of Doom uncomfortable at times; it's its mean-spiritedness.
May 26, 2008
...an obvious step down from its stellar predecessor...

[T]he best of the Indiana Jones movies...it's insanely wonderful, in every sense of those words.
May 22, 2008
It lacks the sense of detail that made Raiders such a treat. It isn't very clever, very funny or very compelling.
May 21, 2008
The reality is that this is the film that comes closest to reflecting the racism, sexism and jingoism that fuelled most of the serials that originally sparked Spielberg and George Lucas's impressionable young imaginations.
May 21, 2008
Where the brilliant "Raiders" was an adventure film aimed at the child at heart, "Temple of Doom" is really designed for the kiddie market itself.
May 14, 2008
If it was a sign of the times for Indiana Jones to take on more of a comic-book aspect, the film's accomodation of darker themes and explicit imagery came as something of a shock to many.
May 7, 2008
...makes you wonder if Spielberg and series producer George Lucas might have been going through some sort of drug phase.
