I went to see "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" and I'm not sure about the film. I remember as an early teenager thinking how good the Indiana Jones films were. Having seen this film, I think it's one of those films series you can't go back to if I'm honest. It's got all the action that was in the previous films but less of the knowing humor that typified the first three films. That, coupled with the fact I suspected they were going through the motions made me wonder what the point point of the movie was.
In this film, there's less religion too. The communists (in the person of Cate Blanchett) want to get their hands on a collection of Aztec crystal skulls that can be used to control the minds of others. Fair enough, you might think, you might the whole religion thing was over done anyway, but I couldn't take Blanchett seriously as the baddie. She reminded me of Mrs Swan from Madtv, and found myself snikering at her some during the film.
So all in all the film left me feel flat if I'm honest.
