When Dr. Henry Jones, Sr. suddenly goes missing while pursuing the Holy Grail, eminent archaeologist Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones, Jr. must follow in his father's footsteps to stop the Nazis from getting their hands on the Holy Grail first.
A decidedly odd couple with ulterior motives convince Dr. Alan Grant to go to Isla Sorna (the second InGen dinosaur lab.), resulting in an unexpected landing...and unexpected new inhabitants on the island.
A cybernetic warrior from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to protect a 25-year old drifter and his future wife from a most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
A seemingly indestructible humanoid cyborg is sent from 2029 to 1984 to assassinate a waitress, whose unborn son will lead humanity in a war against the machines, while a soldier from that war is sent to protect her at all costs.
During the Cold War, Soviet agents watch Professor Henry Jones when a young man brings him a coded message from an aged, demented colleague, Harold Oxley. Led by the brilliant Irina Spalko, the Soviets tail Jones and the young man, Mutt, to Peru. With Oxley's code, they find a legendary skull made of a single piece of quartz. If Jones can deliver the skull to its rightful place, all may be well; but if Irina takes it to its origin, she'll gain powers that could endanger the West. Aging professor and young buck join forces with a woman from Jones' past to face the dangers of the jungle, Russia, and the supernatural. Written by
In the jungle chase scene, in one shot Ox is sitting in the jeep's back seat, and nobody is behind him. But when Indy jumps onto the jeep, there are three soldiers sitting at the end of the jeep behind Ox. See more »
Again Indy in a stirring and amazing follow-up that takes place in Peru
This adventure spectacle follows to Harrison Ford as the two-fisted Indiana Jones , the toughest and most unpredictable archaeologist and is set circa the Cold War . The whip-wielding hero , in spite of his aging , is in fine form , and adding panache appears McHale(Ray Winstone), as Indy's archaeologist friend. This time Indiana finds himself solitary , as his father (Sean Connery , The last Crusade) and his colleague professor(Denholm Elliott) have dead . But Jones along with a rebel young man , a Marlon Brando-alike , named Mutt (Shia LaBeouf) go to Peru , where a partner professor (John Hurt) has been kidnapped by the Soviets led by Col. Dr. Irina (Cate Blanchett). Disappearance demented professor while searching for the Nazca treasure sets the story in motion and rough Indiana encounters an old love , Marion (Karen Allen, Raiders of the lost Ark) . Meanwhile, the Stalin's soldiers commanded by Russian KGB leader get a scheme to uncover the secret about the mysterious crystal skulls .
This deliberately old-fashioned adventure story has everything for amusement , and generates a sense of wonder but never gives us a chance to breathe . It recreates and outdoes a bunch of cliffhangers stunts , fast-paced action scenes and violent fights that have you on the edge of the seat . The film contains derring-do , spectacular feats , exciting adventures and sometimes scary events , such as occurs with the starving killers ants . Harrison Ford gives an ironical and sympathetic acting , he apparently has kept himself in such good shape over the years that his costuming measurements for this film had not changed from those in Indiana Jones and the last crusade (1989), nearly 20 years earlier. He performed many of his own stunts, because stunt technology had become safer since 1989; he also felt it improved his performance. Well made special effects by the Spielberg's usual , Industrial Light and Magic, George Lucas' ownership , and Stan Winston Studio . As always, the classic John Williams repeating his emotive score. Glimmer and luxurious cinematography by Januzk Kaminsky . Furthermore , customary technicians , as editor Michael Kahn and costume designer by Bernie Pollack . The motion picture was lavishly produced by the regulars , George Lucas , Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy . The picture will appeal those looking for excitement and Indiana Jones saga fans.
