Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)



Reviews and Comments

It's not as gritty as Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom -- in fact, Steven Spielberg said he made it to apologize for it -- but The Last Crusade just may be a little too bright. This is, of course, shameless nitpicking, for this third Indiana Jones film is loads of fun. The highlight of this one is the appearance of Indiana Jones' father, ironically played by the same actor who played Jones' inspriation, Sean Connery. (Indiana Jones came from Steven Spielberg's desire to make a James Bond film.) The two work beautifully together, and we get to see a personal side to Indiana we have not seen before. I just have one question: Why didn't Indy wait for the Nazis to get the boat started and out a ways before he fired up the motorcycle?
