Famed archaeologist/adventurer Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones is called back into action when he becomes entangled in a Soviet plot to uncover the secret behind mysterious artifacts known as the Crystal Skulls.
After arriving in India, Indiana Jones is asked by a desperate village to find a mystical stone. He agrees, and stumbles upon a secret cult plotting a terrible plan in the catacombs of an ancient palace.
Jonathan Ke Quan
A cybernetic warrior from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to protect a 25-year old drifter and his future wife from a most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
During the Cold War, Soviet agents watch Professor Henry Jones when a young man brings him a coded message from an aged, demented colleague, Harold Oxley. Led by the brilliant Irina Spalko, the Soviets tail Jones and the young man, Mutt, to Peru. With Oxley's code, they find a legendary skull made of a single piece of quartz. If Jones can deliver the skull to its rightful place, all may be well; but if Irina takes it to its origin, she'll gain powers that could endanger the West. Aging professor and young buck join forces with a woman from Jones' past to face the dangers of the jungle, Russia, and the supernatural. Written by
All three previous Indiana Jones movies featured a Bond-like, mini-adventure introductory sequence that bore little or no significance to the main plot. In this film, the main story begins immediately after the opening credits, which includes the introduction of all the main villains, along with the very secret to the crystal skull itself. See more »
When Mutt and Indiana Jones are on the motorcycle in the first chase, they go through the covered walkway that the car cannot follow them through. When the camera is looking from behind them you see a green car on the street when they are about to exit. But when camera is on the street when they come through it is a black car. See more »
The movie begins with the Lucasfilm logo, followed by the 1954 Paramount "VistaVision" logo (with the text "PARAMOUNT" instead of "A PARAMOUNT PICTURE" and "A Viacom Company" instead of "A Gulf+Western Company" below "PARAMOUNT"). Gulf+Western became Paramount Communications in 1989, then merged with Viacom in 1994. The Paramount logo then dissolves into a gopher mound. (The static version of the current Paramount logo is seen at the end of the movie.) See more »
I'll confess up-front that I wasn't expecting as much from this film as its three prequels. Harrison Ford is twenty years older, see, and I just couldn't imagine an Indy movie under those circumstances. But he did it, Indy did it, and the movie was an absolute wide-eyed riot! The action outdid itself in all its glory, all the humor of the chase scenes were fantastic, and overall Indy IV is one awesome come-back for Indy and Marion! See it ... you won't be disappointed. *I* wasn't, not in the least! :)
On the other hand, I saw this film with my sister and her husband (we're all 50-ish). My sister's opinion and rating would likely be a shrug of the shoulders. Her husband wasn't in the least impressed. Silly people! ;)
I've been an Indy action and humor fan from the beginning ... maybe that's a must to enjoy this movie? Hey, the action's killer and I laughed my butt off and rate this movie the perfect 10 it deserves! Enjoy it! :)
