Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade(1989)

This is a great movie. The first one was amazing, the second one was definitely a bit of a step down, but they brought the series back up with the Last Crusade. One awesome thing about this movie was the addition of Sean Connery to the cast. Him and Harrison Ford have this great father-son chemistry that you totally buy in to and they play off each other fantastically. Another great addition was giving the character of Marcus Brody a very substantial role in the plot. He turned out to be hilarious comic relief along with another great character: Sallah. I love that they brought back Sallah for this movie. The villains are Nazis once again and they are even more evil than in Raiders of the Lost Ark. In addition to that, the action is great, the story is cool and there is just non stop thrills from start to finish. Raiders of the Lost Ark was more lighthearted, Temple of Doom was dark and Last Crusade went back to the formula of Raiders, which was a very good decision. All in all, Last Crusade is one of the two nearly perfect installments of the Indy series. Grade: A
