5.0 out of 5 stars In my opinion, the best of the series..., 5 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Eminent archaeologist Indiana Jones is back in his second adventure, this time to tackle the great terror surrounding the mysterious Temple of Doom.

After crash landing in India, Jones and companions Short Round and Willie Scott end up in a small distressed village where the residents claim a dark power has stolen their precious stones and children.

Agreeing to assist the village, Jones and friends make their way to a nearby palace and enquire further into the strange happenings.

Assuring Indiana he has no idea what he's talking about, the prime minister offers them to spend the night in the palace.

However, that evening Jones discovers a secret passage into a temple and stumbles onto something he thought was long extinct.

It seems the age old cut of Thuggee cult is attempting to rise once more, believing that with the power of the five Sankara stones they can rule the world.....

Almost two hours whizz by in the blink of an eye, thanks to the swift direction of Spielberg, and a fine performance from Ford.

It's dark though, the narrative and story are sinister, but you also have some very funny scenes and lines to even the the tone out.

The three leads have wonderful chemistry together, and this really comes into perspective when there are more emotional scenes (when Jones grabs Shorty after he has burnt him and winks at him always brings a lump into my throat).

Topped off with excellent set pieces and beautiful score, this was the film to beat in 1984, and probably the eighties (although that is my opinion.

It is very different from the other three movies, but it keeps the 'boys' own adventure feel to it, and it never lets up, from the moment you see Willie Scott emerge from the dragons mouth right up to the final embrace.
