Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull: Fun and entertaining...

Thursday, June 05, 2008

When I watched Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull, I thought of Jessica Zafra's post about the movie. She has a point. Harrison Ford is old and we don't expect him to have the same energy he had when he last played the role. I watched it for two reasons: Cate Blanchett and Shia LaBeouf are both in it and the trailer looks like it's going to be a fun ride.


And yes, it was a lot of fun! I have to say, some parts were kind of boring. The Indy rip-off, National Treasure was better at keeping the moviegoers excited in every scene. A few things I loved:

1. Harrison does not try too hard with his action scenes. It does portray him as an aging adventurer.
2. As usual, Cate Blanchett delivers. I admire her for doing well in using the accents required in her movies. She did well as an Irish reporter in Veronica Guerin. In Indy4, she plays a Russian and speak Russian too.
3. Clearly, the Indiana Jones franchise is still alive. And I'm glad that they chose Shia LaBeouf to be the next Indy.
