Spielberg has come up with another rousing piece of entertainment.
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.

It's not the darker turn that makes The Temple of Doom uncomfortable at times; it's its mean-spiritedness.
May 5, 2008
Pic comes on like a sledgehammer, and there's even a taste of vulgarity and senseless excess not apparent in Raiders.
May 5, 2008
The film betrays no human impulse higher than that of a ten-year-old boy trying to gross out his baby sister by dangling a dead worm in her face.
June 24, 2006
Part of the trouble is that anything clearly does go, including the slender hold on credibility that Raiders managed to maintain.

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.
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
September 16, 2012
A necessary package for any fan of the franchise, at least until the folks at Lucasfilm dust off another forgotten making-of feature or, God forbid, green light another Indiana Jones adventure.
January 2, 2011
More gore, gross-outs than the other Indy blockbusters.
May 26, 2008
...an obvious step down from its stellar predecessor...
May 25, 2008
[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
Just like the Thuggees took the magic rocks from a humble Indian village, the producers of this Temple of Doom DVD reissue made off with all the good extras.
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.
