[QUOTE] (Temple of Doom) has nothing wrong. But some people think Nazis are the only possible enemies for Indy. [/QUOTE] Seconded. It's a little different, but not worse than the other two, IMHO. On the contrary, it's ok to have some originality/variation, seeing the 4th going back to repeating exactly the 1st and 3rd's formula disappointed me a little (not much because I was already expecting it though). [QUOTE] One question about KotCS: is Indy older in the story or do they just hide it with Movie Magic(tm)? He's 20 years older. Like Harrison Ford. But you'll only notice because the film tells you: Indy in action doesn't look old. [/QUOTE] Yup, they managed the aging really well, IMHO. As well as Shia's character and Indy's "old/new generation" relationship with him. If anything, perhaps, the only problem was precisely the "the movie tells you" part. They made so many "you're so old, man" jokes and comments that it got a little tiresome. You almost end up thinking "yes, we get the joke, Indy's older but still kicking, move along..." As for my review.... That, and the plot, while it has never been Indy's strongest point, it felt less worked on (ironic, considering how it took them so long) as the other three. There are quite lots of incongruencies here and there, or things that felt like they were put there just for the heck of it. See: "indian-ninjas" in cemetery. Or background: Other than that, I really enjoyed it a lot, specially the first half or so, till they go to Peru. The typical Indy scenes were really well executed, the comedy scenes such as the library, were funny, and the nuclear blast scene was so lovely cheesy... XD In short: bad plot, great execution. Oh, except the monkeys. That screamed "Lucas' doing!" and "Ewoks!" so badly it hurt. u.u
