Pic comes on like a sledgehammer, and there's even a taste of vulgarity and senseless excess not apparent in Raiders.

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.

Though not as thrilling as Raiders of the Lost Ark, the second chapter still has merits, particularly its fast pacing, spectacular opening scene, and visual effects, which won the Oscars in 1984.

...it's cathartic as hell, for Spielberg and for those of us who go for the ride. The mayhem is transporting, inspired, exultant...

Part of the trouble is that anything clearly does go, including the slender hold on credibility that Raiders managed to maintain.

I honestly think this edgier prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark does an even better job of being a non-stop rollercoaster ride than the original.

All action and little story made for an entertaining followup to the adventure classic.

Terrific opening with 'Anything Goes' in Chinese -- then the kid shows up and it's downhill.

Only so so follow up to "Raiders." Extra points off for the very annoying Short Round.

The kind of movie where your date is always grabbing your forearm in a viselike grip, as unbearable excitement unfolds on the screen. After the movie is over, you've had a great time but your arm is black-and-blue for a week.

You know, the more distance I get from this, the more I think: man, what a dark, depressing film. I think when it came out I was just that desperate for a new Indy flick.

Yes, Temple of Doom still stinks -- save that spectacular opening Shanghai nightclub scene.
