From Amazon.co.uk

As with George Lucas's other movie franchise, there's a vein of mysticism running through the Indiana Jones Trilogy. Watching all three back-to-back it's possible to unravel the chronology and chart the spiritual journey of our hero: the idealistic Young Indy ("It belongs in a museum", implores River Phoenix in the opening escapade of The Last Crusade) grows up to become a cynical fortune-hunter seen trading archaeological treasures with Chinese gangsters at club "Obi-Wan" in The Temple of Doom. From there we follow his path to redemption via three mystical religious objects: respectively Hindu (the Shankara stones in Temple of Doom), Jewish (the Ark of the Covenant in Raiders), and Christian (the Holy Grail itself in Last Crusade).

But that's just the subtext. Along the way, this knight-errant archaeologist undertakes improbable adventures (featuring spiders, snakes, rats, insects and Nazis galore), rescues damsels in distress (even when they really don't want to be rescued, such as Kate Capshaw in Temple of Doom), and still finds time to bond with his dad (Sean Connery, in one of cinema's great cameo roles as Dr Jones Sr.)

Steven Spielberg revels in Lucas's recreation of 1930s cliff-hanger serials, infusing every scene with kinetic energy and infectious enthusiasm and creating any number of iconic sequences that have become touchstones of cinematic history. Director and producer are more than ably assisted by regular composer John Williams, whose swashbuckling Korngold-inspired Raiders theme casts Harrison Ford as a modern-day Errol Flynn. Although a fourth movie is promised, this trilogy plays like a self-contained whole that leaves nothing wanting: from the witty dialogue and breathtaking action choreography to the near-perfect casting, this is popular movie-making at its very peak. --Mark Walker

Don't bother with the new boxset release of the trilogy, this one is far superior and has better and more in-depth special features. The restoration done to these films is amazing, they all look like they were made yesterday. Raiders has aged superbly, better actually than Temple of Doom and Last Crusade which do have some rather dated looking effects in them. Raiders is easily the best, it just has a certain `something' that the other two lack, but they are still superb films in their own right. Temple of Doom is refreshingly different and has a much darker edge to it whereas Last Crusade tries abit to hard to emulate the style of Raiders rather than finding it's own, but it does win points for the casting of Sean Connery as Indy's Dad. With the imminent release of the fourth film in the saga, there's never been a better time to snap up these films. Unbeatable entertainment.

The Indiana Jones films are a rich mixture of action, humour, inventiveness, and some very serious philosophy, all bound together by the superb Indie and his friends and enemies. The films range from American college archaeology lecture rooms, to deserts and the insides of ancient pyramid-like temples, to the bowels of Indian mountains, South American jungles,and Germany in the 3rd Reich. The characters are fascinating, but Harrison Ford as Indie, most of all. After watching the first film,'Raiders of the Lost Ark' with John Williams' catchy theme and exciting atmospheric music for mystical scenes, one cannot wait to see the next one, 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.' This is about a nasty Indian society of kidnapping thugs who use child labour to keep their secret, murderous rituals going inside a mountain and who capture the heroine and prepare to toast her. The classic Saturday Matinee cliffhangers run right through it, with Indie fighting grossly evil genius in impossible situations. Again, humour relieves the tension and there are issues to be considered philosophically, though they're different from the ones in 'Raiders.' Third in the trilogy is 'Indiana Jones and the Search for the Holy Grail.' which is marvellous. We get some of Indie's own history featuring Sean Connery as his remarkable dad. Train roof duels, ancient writings and very funny escapes of father and son provide huge entertainment as well as some poignant scenes.The Nazis are after the means of ruling the world again in an unholy search for the Holy Grail, also being pursued by Indie and his dad. The philosophy is even deeper than that of 'Raiders' and there are some very fine illustrations of the nature of faith and trust, as well as remarkable insight.Read more ›

Note that the clue to this boxed set lies in its title - 'Trilogy'. The fourth film in the series (Crystal Skull) is missing and I am no doubt that many will not consider this much of a loss.

I do like the completeness of all collections and this omission may rankle with some.

The Indy trilogy is great fun and has stood the test of time well. Raiders of the Lost Ark hasn't aged at all and neither had The Last Crusade. The Temple of Doom has a few dodgy effects and is a tad corny in places but is still nevertheless very entertaining. It's worth revisting these films on DVD before the fourth installment comes out later this year.
Great fun.

I loved these films when I was younger, but having recently bought the box set and watched them all again my feelings were mixed. If you are a die-hard Indy fan, you might want to look away now:

Firstly, there is only one truly great film in this set (Raiders) with and averagely good one (Last Crusade) and a borderline bad one (Temple of Doom) bringing up the rear. Now, before it all kicks off, hear me out:

There is nothing, so far as I'm concerned, more exciting in any film, ever, than the first 25mins of `Raiders' - it has everything, a lesson in great filmmaking. And the thing `Raiders' really had going for it was a great maguffin in the Ark of the Covenant. Like many people who watched the first time around, I'd never really heard of it (despite C of E upbringing!) and I was captivated. Educated even!! Great writing, great acting etc etc...magic. Endlessly watch-able.

Fast forward to Temple of Doom. Problem: what is Indy going to look for this time? Because, the Ark was so much a part of the first film, we needed something equal to the task second time around. Problem upon problem: there ain't many antiquities which have as much story potential as the Ark of the Covenant. There are lots of `mysterious artefacts' which have arisen over the years, but none of those, really, has the oomph of the Ark. Infact, when George Lucas first heard about the Ark, he had been looking for just such a thing for his character `Indiana Smith' - this is how important it was to have the right object to chase.

I guess they knew this, but in the rush to give us a second film, they dealt with the problem...by not dealing with it. Oh, yes there are those magic stones or whatever they are, but they are almost - infact they are, a subplot and nothing more.
