The Return of Dr. Jones!

Indiana Jones is back in a fast-paced adventure that will have you glued to the screen from start to finish. Without giving too much away, here's the basic premise: It's about 20 years since we've last seen Henry "Indiana" Jones (Harrison Ford) and, while he's been keeping himself busy with adventures, he seems to be settling in to a relatively calm and academic old age. However, Indy is forced back into action when he becomes entangled in a Soviet plot to uncover the secret behind mysterious artifacts known as the Crystal Skull!

A New Adventure

Soon the adventure is underway and Indy is crisscrossing the globe in an attempt to stop the Soviets and save his own skin. Expect tons of nostalgic hat and whip close-ups and the return of a bunch of great Indiana Jones characters - plus one great new one (played by Shia LeBeouf!).

The Bottom Line

If you're an Indiana Jones fan, you'll love this movie and if you're not, you're crazy. This movie encompasses everything you've come to love about the Indiana Jones movies. Sure, it has its flaws, but you'll have a hard time remembering them as you leave the theater humming the theme song.

    I've had tons and still do. I think it's easy to crush on fictional characters. Even ones form movies and tv shows, though they are real people that's not their real personality.  Hinata, Sugawara, Tsukishima, Kageyama, and Asahi from Haikyuu Onoda, Makishima, Kinjou, Shinkai and Izumida form Yowapeda That's just from two shows...
