Some tonal miscues and a clumsy love story can't derail action this good, this breath-taking.

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.

Spielberg has come up with another rousing piece of entertainment.

This movie is batshit insane.
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
January 2, 2011
More gore, gross-outs than the other Indy blockbusters.

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.

...an obvious step down from its stellar predecessor...

[T]he best of the Indiana Jones movies...it's insanely wonderful, in every sense of those words.

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.

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.

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.

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)
May 5, 2008
A breakneck adventure that moves at twice the pace of the original but has only half the creative strength.
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.
April 29, 2008
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.
