OK. Nothing Special,
This review is from: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2-Disc Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is set in the 1950s, as opposed to the 1930s, as in the previous films in this series. In this one Indy is on the trail of a Crystal Skull, which is believed to have magical powers. As it is now the 1950s, the Soviets have replaced the Nazis, as Indiana's main adverseries.
I felt the film captured the era very well, the clothes, the politics and peoples attitudes at the time etc. There was plenty of action going on throughout the film, so it held my attention, and was enjoyable for the most part. Where I felt the film fell apart was towards the end. It all started getting a bit too far fetched for my liking, and I can't help but feel, that this film has somewhat tarnished what was an excellent series.
