    There were a few over the top moments for me...but overall I quite enjoyed it actually. I felt the character parts were well performed, good action sequences (the jungle car chase scene leading to the ants was great IMO), the whole first half of the film felt very appropriate for an Indy film, I liked the whole '50's vibe the movie had, including the use of aliens and connection to the Roswell incident etc. Great to see Marion again-being Marion, and I actually didn't mind Mutt. I thought he'd just be this bumbling comic relief-but he could actually hold his own, I liked that.

    The only things I didn't like:
    -Nuke the fridge
    -Swinging with monkeys
    -"not from space, but the space between spaces." I mean why couldn't they have just been from space?!

    But these were just brief moments-which didn't ruin the whole rest of the movie for me. IMO Much better than Temple of Doom, with all of Willie's shrieking...

    It's not that bad.

    But it's not that good, either.

    The action sequences in Indiana Jones 4 >>> 2010's blockbuster action sequences (except for the fun Indy throwback sequence in The Last Jedi (the Falthiers scene))

    The script, dialogue, and cinematography (a rare misfire for Kaminski) are all pretty lame though

    Yeah I thought it was pretty crappy. I went in expecting it to be better than what people were making it out to be, figuring they were just being impossible to please. I thought that even a phoned-in Indy movie would probably at least be decent. Sometimes word of mouth is bad for a good reason though. It had some moments but they were few and far between while the bad moments were plentiful and long.

    You know, I always thought the ending of The Last Crusade was the perfect way to end the franchise. And it basically is - riding off into the sunset. But seriously, the wedding scene is the next best thing. I love how low key it is. Indy gets a happy ending, and we get to see him at a different part of his life. KOTCS allows the character to have a more complete character arc. Yes, he's older...but he's still INDIANA JONES. He's still the man. And what better way to show that by putting on the hat? He's not handing the mantle over to anybody.
