I think JWD, upthread a bit, has the right of it: KotCS is over-crowded. It has some really terrific scenes, and it definitely has that "Indy feel" in places -- most notably in the first half, culminating in the graveyard sequence -- but there's too much going on, minute-to-minute, for the film to really dig in and find its footing. It never seems to focus its themes, its imagery or its characters. In short, it's a scattershot affair. I like the film better than ToD, but it's not as good or as effective as TLC.
