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.
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.
This movie is very enjoyable, but not as enjoyable. There are some scenes in this movie that are supper fun and awesome to watch, but there are some scenes in this movie that are very useless. The one big problem I have in this movie is Willie. Willie is extremely annoying, especially with the last movie having Marion who is a million times better then Willie. With that being my one big problem then that still means it's good but not as good as the original.
Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom: Darker than the rest of the franchise Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom is a masterpeice from the Inainda Jones arc. Great action and depth make it the Golden peak of the franchise.
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.
