I was excited to pick up the latest installment of the Indiana Jones series, The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The last one was so good that I knew this one had to be. I guess I made a bad assumption.
The plot is very unbelievable. The Russians infiltrate a US military base in Nevada during the 1950’s. Of course, it is Area 51 and the Russians want what the US recovered at an alien crash at Roswell. The story leads us to South America and the search for El Dorado’s City of Gold. Spoiler alert: We learn during this movie that Indiana has a son played by Shia LeBeouf. Of course, Indiana Jones is able to discover the City of Gold and the secret behind our alien visitors. The story is alright but a little bit out there.
I just noticed that George Lucas helped to write the story so it all makes sense. While watching the movie I swore I saw a light saber, just kidding. If you have not seen it, don’t waste your time. Enjoy the first three movies and skip this one. This movie has officially killed the franchise for me.
Note to Steven Spielberg, do whatever you can to destroy every copy of this movie. Note to Shia LeBeouf, just keep making Transformers movies. I can’t wait for Transformers 2. Note to Harrison Ford, time to move on to a new role. I liked you in Air Force One and What Lies Beneath, keep those roles coming.
