Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on DVD

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on DVD. Director Steven Spielberg did not want to do an alien movie, but producer George Lucas said they would be “inter-dimensional beings” instead. Spielberg should have followed his instincts as the weakest part of the fourth Indiana Jones film is not believing Harrison Ford as a sixty-something adventurer, but the crystal skulls themselves. Unlike the mythological components of the first three films: the Ark of the Covenant, the Sankara Stones, and the Holy Grail, crystal skulls from an alien race with paranormal mental abilities is so far-fetched as to be laughable and a distraction from the rest of the movie.

The first half-hour is wonderful, classic Indiana Jones adventure with the initial great escape from the evil villains (set in 1957, we progressed from the Nazis to the Russians), a second chase scene via motorcycle, and a mysterious riddle written in a dead language. However, once the action moves to South America, the rest of the movie is only average: entertaining yes, but not spectacular. The self-described “part-time professor’s” problem-solving abilities are, unfortunately, not utilized to their fullest.
