Anyone else feel that the jungle chase looked very, very fake with really poor CGI?? I mean, what was that with the fencing on the jeeps? The speeder bike chase in Return Of The Jedi, 25 years ago had more convincincing rear projection! Raiders and Crusade had great stunts filmed in real locations with real stuntmen - what the hell happened? No sense of danger at all. I thought the film was ok but there was not a single 'classic' action scene at all, mostly due to a reliance on poor visual FX.
As much as I enjoyed the latest Indy film, I have to agree with you on the 'Jungle Chase'. The 'Truck Scene' from Raiders and the 'Tank Scene' from Last Crusade benefited from the fact that there is no CGI or bluescreen. The stunt where Vic Armstrong jumps from the horse onto the moving tank is one of cinema's finest stunts ever performed, the jungle chase should have reflected this. I am also putt off by the way Indy took a back seat allowing Mutt Williams to elbow his way in on the action in this sequence. I don't think any Indy fan wants to see that.
Another Indy film? Well, Yes. But only with these 3 conditions! 1. David Krapp (pun intended) doesn't write the screenplay (his scripts are tight but he continually fails to fully develop his characters) 2. Mutt Williams is left to a smaller role or perhaps make a prequel where he isn't in it and where the talents of Ray Winstone and John Hurt could be utilised and not wasted. 3. Harrison Ford gets a good face lift.
