Im sorry vlad but i gotta disagree here.
Im a huge Indy fan and i love all three previous films, but what the hell happened here, this isnt indiana Jones, In fact i would go so far as to say that National Treasure 2 feels more Indy than this film. Now I know that all the indiana Jones films always tend to go over the top with the suspension of disbelief but this one just takes the piss! This film is so tacky I almost puked into my popcorn half ways through.
Okay so there are some great action sequences and there are some great performances (particularly Shia and Hurt, who didn’t have enough of a role) but the script is the worst script I have seen in a long time, which really pisses me off because apparantly Speilberg and lucas spent yonkadoodles looking and waiting for "the right one". One scene in particular, without giving away anything, set in a military base and a fridge was just ridiculous.
So to keep it short, there are moments in there but thats about it. I’m just hoping that once the initial shock of it fades, it improves on second viewing, which is going to have to wait till dvd for me.
5.5 out of 10, or 3/5 for me.
