Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull movie review


The Adventurer's Apprentice


Indy's back. Thrust from his safe and comfortable academic life he is dragged into a new adventure by a young man who needs Indy's help to rescue the boy's mother and the man who helped raise him -- people from Indy's own past.

Harrison Ford's days as an action hero are a memory, these days he needs a youngster to do the stunts. The swagger is slower and the Nazis have been replaced by Russians, and this time the artefact could well be alien in origin.

It's one more plunge into the supernatural, a touch of romanace, a pinch of friendship and a smudge of story. But what the heck, the Indiana Jones series has never pretended to be more than a contemporary cinematic serial.
