Indiana Jones is back again, this time it’s 1938 and Jones has to rescue his father who went looking for the Holy Grail in order to stop those pesky Nazi’s getting it.
In this film we see how Indiana started out, and where he’s developed to in the ‘now’. Much like audiences who have flocked to see these adventure movies he is a changed and grown man, he has more of a heart and more experience to call upon. The movie needed to be more than it’s predecessors or I think audiences would have been bored – thankfully this is more than came before, and is perhaps why this is a lot of peoples favorite Indiana Jones film. Alongside Harrison Ford is Sean Connery as Henry Jones Sr, with a supporting cast which includes Denholm Elliott, Alison Doody and even Alexei Sayle… oh and if you recognize young Indiana Jones, that’s because it’s River Phoenix! Connery and Ford work extremely well together and show why they are Hollywood icons, their double teaming father and son act is fun yet endearing. Steven Spielberg (with George Lucas’s writing) have brought yet another iconic film which has stood the test of time and with a John Williams score again, viewers are treated to a masterclass in what adventure films should be like.
Fun, adventure, thrills, spills, suspense, comedy, romance, horror… what more could you want!
