Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of LETDOWNS

Just got back from seeing the latest (and definitely not the greatest) Indiana Jones flick. Wow…I didn’t think it was even possible for such a storied and beloved franchise to make this wrong a turn…

Gone are the days of Indiana Jones playfully and successfully blending action and slapstick. This felt like a bad theme park ride – not the 4th chapter in what has historically been a fun and rewarding series of movies.

IJ4 is totally lacking substance, plot, and motivation. As a huge fan of the original trilogy, I was willing to accept that there was little chance for the latest chapter to be on par with the first three. However, besides Harrison Ford easily being able to resume his classic role, the entire movie was flat and disappointing.

A sad day for Indy fans everywhere…
