Indiana Jones 4

If you've heard that the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull doesn't have the charm, wit, or suspense that the first three films had, you have heard correct. It was predictable, had many not very exciting points, and didn't really fit into the established world of Indiana Jones. On it's own, it wasn't so bad, but when you compare it to the first three films in the franchise, you feel like George Lucas killed the golden goose just to see where the eggs came from (much like he did with the Star Wars prequels).

It was spectacular, taken as a movie in it's own right, right up until the big flying saucer lifted out of the ground and took off! WTF!!! I would have had a very different opinion of the film if it weren't for that.
