    A few cool action scenes unfortunately cannot save a script and overall plot that is uninteresting and boring from start to finish. Albeit quite unrealistic (waterfalls anyone?) the few action sequences did make the movie semi-enjoyable, but they had nothing to do with advancing the story. A bunch of the characters are useless, as well - never really hated or even cared about the villains. The ending - ummm....was that supposed to make me go "OMG so cool!"? Overall, not recommended.

    Note: it took me about 5 sittings to get through this.

    Desperately preoccupied with assuring us that it does, in fact, take place in THE FIFTIES and truly no more absurd than any of the first three movies. The script doesn't allow Blanchett to go the full camp both appropriate and necessary to make her an even vaguely compelling villain, though John Hurt seems more than willing to (try to) make up the difference.

    The best part of the original movies were the insane stunts and imaginative set pieces. That's been replaced with Phantom Menace-esque cg and Shia Lebeuf playing a greaser tough guy in the worst casting in cinema history.

    Friend: The fourth one sucks!
    Me: No, it's not that bad! Really, a whole lot better than the second!
    Friend: Really.
    Me: Really!

    Boy was I wrong. It really sucks.

    I acknowledge that I'm almost completely in the minority here, but I like…er, scratch that, love this movie. Not only was it a treat to see a new Indiana Jones film in the theater in it's original release, but I've always found it to be full of thrills, humor and heart. Hell, I even love the ending. Indy discovering 50's-style UFOs? Yup. I really, really dug it. And it's held up on multiple viewings. While LaBeouf's character feels a bit…

    I Like 2008's Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, I Like It Because My Mom Kelli Likes Shia LaBeouf And Ms. Sindelar My Teacher Knows Cate Blanchett.

    So you think the refrigerator scene is absurd and unrealistic? Then I guess the rubber boat in Temple of Doom was an example of ultimate realism? Oh, it’s preposterous with the alien plot? I guess the god plot of the earlier films is much more plausible? Wait, plot holes? So… so you mean the other three films have no plot holes at all?

    Sorry for the sarcasm, but reading peoples opinions about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal…

    When I first saw Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I admit I was probably a bit generous with my rating. I played down its problems because hey, it was a new Indiana Jones film and as a reviewer that was exciting to tackle after growing up with the previous three adventures.

    I have watched this polarizing picture for the second time and was about as entertained by it as I was during that initial theatrical viewing.…
