With Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull set to take theaters by storm, it's time for a refresher course in all things Indy. Thankfully for the adventure-lovers of the world, the Indiana Jones: Adventure Collection has hit shelves just in time. We're taking a look at this three-disc set to see how it stacks up to previous editions!
Raiders of the Lost ArkWhen Harrison Ford appeared on the big screen as Indiana Jones in 1981, the world of archeology was forever changed. The seemingly dull profession took on a new adventurous reputation thanks to Indy's outlaw attitude. In this flick, set in 1936, Indy must battle Nazis to find the Ark of the Covenant, a chest the Israelites built to hold the remnants of the Ten Commandments. Raiders of the Lost Ark is as action-packed as movies come, and sets the tone perfectly for the subsequent movies. It's an absolute must-see!
Indiana Jones and the Temple of DoomWhile Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom came out three years after Raiders of the Lost Ark, this second flick is actually a prequel to the first. This time he teams up with a nightclub owner and a twelve-year-old boy named Short Round. The trio heads to [KWLINK 6740]India where they discover the great mysterious terror surrounding a booby-trapped temple known as the Temple of Doom!
Indiana Jones and the Last CrusadeIndy's dad sends him a diary that holds clues and a map to find the mysterious Holy Grail and, soon afterward, his dad disappears! Indiana heads to Italy in search of his father, but finds himself stuck in the middle of a Nazi conspiracy and a race to find the Holy Grail before the Nazis do! This is Indiana Jones at his best!
The Adventure Collection DVD FeaturesThere have been more than a few Indiana Jones releases over the years, so is the Adventure Collection anything special? In our opinion: yes. Each of the three DVDs includes multiple documentary shorts on the making of the films as well as introductions by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. There's even a demo of the new LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures Game. There are more than enough special features in The Adventure Collection to make it our favorite Indy boxed set to date.
