I have always loved the Indiana Jones movies, and it was with a bit of trepidation that I went and saw the latest. A long time has passed between movies, and it’s one of those sequels that is so long from it’s predecessor you really have to question if it’s relevant any more.
The movie is good, but the legacy of Indiana Jones movies demands something amazing, and it’s not. While I walked out not really disappointed, because I knew not to suspect that it could possibly live up to the legend, I did wonder if the movie stood completely on it’s own, would it have been as popular. I don’t think so – but then again, this is a unique film in the manner in which it will be judged.
Good but not great, three stars.
