5 stars for the movies, 0 stars for the cuts,
This review is from: The Adventures of Indiana Jones: The Complete Movie Collection [DVD] (DVD)
As far as blockbuster action/adventure movies for all ages go, the Indiana Jones trilogy will never be surpassed. Everyone should own these DVDs.
Unfortunately, British audiences at the moment are prevented from owning the entire story, thanks to the cut version of Temple of Doom that we're STILL being subjected to, almost twenty years after the film was released.
Some people have said that these cuts have always been in British versions and that we're "not missing anything" - not true. The BBFC has made a couple of extra cuts to let the DVD remain a PG. And in any case, we ARE missing something, not just in story content and continuity, but in overall style. For a film so well shot and edited, the cut scenes really jar, and appear to have been butchered with a pair of blunt nail scissors.
Like I said, 5 stars for the movie, but do yourself a favour and buy the REAL version from America - it's worth the customs charge.
