February 15, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Spielberg has come up with another rousing piece of entertainment.
May 26, 2014
This movie is batshit insane.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
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
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
January 2, 2011
More gore, gross-outs than the other Indy blockbusters.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
January 13, 2010
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.
June 10, 2008
It's not the darker turn that makes The Temple of Doom uncomfortable at times; it's its mean-spiritedness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 26, 2008 obvious step down from its stellar predecessor...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
May 25, 2008
[T]he best of the Indiana Jones'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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
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.

...makes you wonder if Spielberg and series producer George Lucas might have been going through some sort of drug phase.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
May 7, 2008
While 'The Temple of Doom' is a bit gloomy, puts children in danger, and confines its action primarily to one spot, it's still quite entertaining. (Blu-ray edition)
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
May 5, 2008
A breakneck adventure that moves at twice the pace of the original but has only half the creative strength.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
May 5, 2008
Fantastically choreographed action sequences and another comely companion for Indy (Capshaw) and gloriously overdone visual devices make up for the shameless lack of plot.
May 5, 2008
Pic comes on like a sledgehammer, and there's even a taste of vulgarity and senseless excess not apparent in Raiders.
