I just saw Indiana Jones 4 and __(fill in the blank)__ **potential spoilers**
Well it is very early in the morning here in Oregon and I just got back from seeing the Midnight showing of Indiana Jones 4. Talk about disappointing. I knew early on in the movie that it was going to be bad. For starters the beginning scene on the military base looked so so so SO fake. I understand movie scenes are fake....but they shouldn't look like it in the movie should they? From that point on it was up and down.
*spoilers begin now*
If you take the premise of the movie as far as ancient civilizations and the gods they worshiped, it was an ok movie but for an Indiana Jones movie I was thoroughly disappointed. I think I liked Star Wars Episode I better which is sad.
The long drawn out car chase was terrible. Indy jumping from car to car, I can handle and was kind of humorous but Shia LaBeuoff straddling the gap between two cars while sword fighting???? And then the monkeys teach him how to swing from vine to vine???? And the climax...............................a space ship....................WTF.
I admit the characters aren't bad. Indy is pretty close to who he was back in the day and Shia played a pretty good greaser/biker kid.

My friend said "It was awesome for an Indiana Jones movie. They stuck to their sound effects, plot holes and crappy impossible car chases." I'm not sure if he was being genuinely nostalgic or if he was also disappointed.
The other movies were based on historic myths/legends and so was this one. But they picked a story that needed so many gaps filled it was dumb. They could have done a better job looking for the city of El Dorado or maybe the fountain of youth, although I could see how the fountain of youth is pretty close to the Holy Grail.
Overall I'd give it 2 out of 5. I saw Indiana Jones and all I got was a broken heart.
