Though not as good as the original, "Temple of Doom" still entertains many Indiana Jones fans.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom may not be as good as the original or the 3rd film, but it still remains a fantastic adventure film adding to one of Hollywood's best film series and Harrison Ford still does an amazing job in the title role as the Indiana Jones we all love.

Both effectively grisly and effectively silly, this progenitor of the PG-13 rating (originally PG) aims to shape a misbegotten mercenary into one with a heart of gold, by almost ripping it out of him through a trial of fire and enslavement. The only tale of the good doctor's that doesn't end with a deus ex machina, thus allowing more agency for the whipcracking rascal to earn his heroism.

9/10 Temple of Doom is dark, culturally inaccurate, and has a really annoying love interest (I really wanted her to die). But it's also action-packed, funny, and endlessly imaginative, making it an extremely fun adventure flick.

a different breed than its predecessor, not necessarily worse. in fact, it's pressingly more mature: what made 'raiders' so timeless is amplified with bigger stunts, mystifying set pieces and congested gags. the darker tone and zeal for outrageous indecency in equal measures is a valuable blend for entertainment. spielberg and lucas were prepared to take risks, and the results come crashing through.

A disappointing sequel to a fine first film. But still takes you on a fun heartpounding adventure.

To me' it's nowhere near as great as Raiders, it is still an evtertaining movie for sure, but it lacks the sense of fun and pure adventure that the previous one did.

Continuing on the success of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom goes in a darker direction, while inhabiting the classy effects and fast-paced action and tension fans of the original will admire.

Too dark? No. Perfect? Yes. "The Temple of Doom" has action, laughter and gorgeous cinematography.

"Epic direction, fantastic casting, and fun adventurous action, add those together and you'll get the most fun prequel of all time. The plot is epic and uplifting, the music is still iconic, and its humor is very laughable on many levels. However it's extremely frightening for younger viewers and it's too intense and dark for a PG rating so got to wonder, how did that happen? However this classic is entertaining and I think anyone can enjoy this adventurous fun flick."

Highly Underrated, not better than the original.

It's a step down from Raiders, and the overly dark tones don't help, but Temple of Doom is still a fantastic movie. Harrison Ford is once again charismatic and charming, and although Willie Scott is an annoying love interest, Short Round is a wonderful sidekick. The action is fun and suspenseful, and the bridge scene is one of the best moments in the franchise.

Originally was my least favorite of the original three, but now is perhaps my favorite.

Crazier and slightly edgier than "Raiders," this may not be the same pleasurable and smart breath of fresh air, but it still delivers with spectacular set pieces, innovative visual effects, and the charming Harrison Ford as Indy.

Quite underrated, it is a very good satisfying sequel because it does what most sequels are afraid to do nowadays thats being different and temple of doom was a complete different tone and offererd a lot of good stuff to the table. On first watch i thounght it was 4.5 i did not like it as much as raiders but i loved it on a rewatch and it can actually compete with raiders and crusade it was the one which dragged on the most of the original 3 even though it has less that 2 hours of runtime but that is just a nitpick considering the other 2 are some of the best paced films ive seen.

Best adventure movie ever.

Didn't like it. Kinda silly and not that interesting. Felt very contained outside of the opening which was the best part.

When the second movie is good as the first,...
