The "Kung Fu Aztecs" who attacked Indy and Mutt in the graveyard are not as historically inaccurate as one may think. Pre-Spanish Peru Incans did in fact practice a Martial Art known as "Rumi Maki", which literally translates as "Hard Hands." See more »

Have not read all the comments (there are certainly a lot!), but just the first bunch makes me feel like I saw a different movie from the rest of the viewers. I went with the expectation that Indy is now much older and things wouldn't be quite as quickly paced. I found that both Indy and Marion look great for their ages. The bits of gray hair and wrinkles make them seem more real and I was in great admiration for their acting skills which I enjoyed as I did with the other three. There were so many little moments of fun and enjoyment, as well as lots of action and that splendid music, that I liked it enough to see it more than once. I guess I was not expecting perfection, or doubting that the characters, after all these years, would be older and a little slower. Granted, the adventures of the other three were perhaps a bit more exciting.......but I loved the premise of Indy having a son he didn't know about, of him still being in love with Marion even after all these years, and having the answers for getting out of the tight spots which was learned through years of adventures, while his new-found son learned from him. I liked all the characters pretty much, except for the role Cate Blanchett played. She was interesting, but not very threatening. Since it was the 50's, it had to be Russian, not German, so that was appropriate. I, for one will be looking forward to getting a copy of it to watch again as I have the others. I was not disappointed.
