Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

120 min. minutes | Rated PG-13

As someone who, as a boy, spent countless hours whipping invisible Nazis in the backyard, and clinging to the family car in an imaginary dash to Cairo, it pains me to announce that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is a dud. A long time in coming, the movie has turned out to be an uneven and, at times, outright silly blast of fan service. And though it tries hard to play on your nostalgia for the original trilogy, no amount of fond memories can make up for a terminally weak story, especially one that reeks of being patched together from several abandoned drafts before it. While David Koepp's script gives brief service to Indy's advancing years, every time the man springs into action the movie tries to have it both ways. The result is a movie that never quite jells—one foot in the past, the other trying hard to keep up with the present.
