So after 32 years (??!!) Us Brits finally get the uncut version that the Yanks have had since day one !! Whilst I won't get into my hatred of censorship, I will say this is simply ridiculous that it has only recently been deemed suitable for our fragile minds to view ! It was yesterday (31/12/2015) that me and the missus sat down to watch the full uncut version on blu ray at last. A few scenes actually make more sense now that the film can flow more freely. The print looks absolutely amazing and is one of the best looking movies on blu ray in terms of an older film. Sound too is great. Actually felt like the first time for watching the film ! Also enjoyed it more than I had before. Well worth buying and replacing your old dvd version for !

As an Indiana Jones fan the only film that isn't up to scratch is the fourth one. People dismiss the Temple of Doom far too easily, me, I love it. It's got everything else that Raider and Last Crusade has so why the hating?

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.

I watched The Temple of Doom when I was seven and loved it. Maybe that's why I still love it today. However, every time I look on the internet I see people who seem to think that The second Indiana Jones story is somehow sub-standard to Raiders and Last Crusade (notice how I don't even mention Crystal Skull - which I reasonably enjoyed too).

I disagree. I'd say the main difference between Temple and what went before and (directly) afterwards is the lack of a military presence and some good ol' fashioned Nazi-bashing. Instead, the action largely takes place in one setting (i.e. the Temple of Doom itself) and there's no mention of Marcus or Indy's other professors. Therefore, apparently this goes some way to distance itself from the others, making it appear like more of a `stand-alone' movie. Plus, and maybe you don't know this, it's also (technically) a prequel to Raiders, taking place before the first film.

Also, be prepared for lots of screaming. Indy is accompanied by a female sidekick called Willie who does little else but cry out for help throughout the whole film. Some people have even likened her performance of that of Jar-Jar Binks in how much she irritates the viewer.

However, I ignore all these points and simply love it for a good old-fashioned tongue-in-cheek (slightly) action romp. Harrison Ford is as good as ever and the music adds to the effect and gets your heart racing every time Indy's `theme' comes on.

Yes, it may be slightly out on a limb if you compare it to Raiders and the Last Crusade, but don't treat it any differently. Does anyone really think Indiana Jones ONLY fights the Nazis? There are plenty of bad guys around the world who need a good whipping!

Temple of Doom is as awesome now as when I watched it as a kid.

Yah-boo to the poo-pooers!

Following on from the sublime "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was never going to be an easy feat. Fortunately, with a character as great as archaeologist adventurer Indiana Jones, director Steven Spielberg and writer George Lucas pull it off. Set two years earlier than the events of Raiders of the Lost Ark, this movie starts with a great Busby Berkeley type musical number in a Shanghai nightclub in 1936. A bungled diamond exchange with a Chinese gangster sees our hero escape that predicament by boarding a plane with his young sidekick Shorty, and Willie Scott, the club's spoiled American singer. Following a thrilling descent from the crashing plane, the trio find themselves in India, where they learn of a local village's plight due to a stolen good luck rock, and their kidnapped children. Believing the rock to be one of the lost Sankara Stones, Indy and his companions set out for Pankot Palace, and it is there that they learn of the sinister Thuggee cult, the titular "Temple of Doom", and the fate of the village children.

Ford has never looked better than he does in this movie, and epitomises the adventure-serial type hero. The story races along at breakneck speed, from one thrill to another, including a superb rollercoaster style chase set-piece down a mine in out-of-control carts, and a white-knuckle finale on a rope bridge across a gorge.

The set design of the Temple of Doom itself is fantastic, but a word of warning, the Thuggee cult is dark and sinister, and there are some gruesome moments that may be scary for younger kids. To the people who complain about Willie's incessant screaming, the character is a homage to those damsel in distress type characters of old serials.

Breathtaking, exciting, gripping. There aren't enough superlatives to describe what a great, old-fashioned ride this film is, and even now, 30 years later, it still holds up superbly against modern CGI laden pictures. 10/10
