      This is the 4th installment in the Indiana Jones series of films. It has been several years since the last movie was released and the film does account for that lapse in time. I am thankful for that since it would really be hard to pull off since Harrison Ford is starting to show his age physically. It is now the 1950’s and the new enemy is the Russians. The movie starts off with Indy and his friend

      being taken to a government base, in order to locate a particular mysterious artifact. Indy in usual style escapes from his captors. Since this is the McCarthy era and every one is suspect to being in with the Reds. Indy is picked up and questioned by the FBI. Indy is then contacted by, a young greaser named Mutt Williams, who tells Indy about the kidnapping of his old friend Oxley and of Williams’ mother and that they need ...

      • his help. So Indy is off on another adventure to save the free world and his friends.

        My opinion:

        This is not my favorite of Indiana Jones series of movies, but it is not unwatchable either. It does provide some entertainment but is not as good as the previous installments. There is plenty of action to keep the movie going with chases, fights and explosions, but the acting and dialog seem to fall flat. There are some comical moments

        as we have come to expect of the Indy movies. The storyline is probably my biggest complaint about the entire film. It is a little more sci-fi then I and am sure other viewers have come to expect of this series and just did not seem to fit well. I did not find it to be overly interesting and seemed lifeless. So die-hard fans beware you may be disappointed if you had high expectations for this film.
