| Why all the hate? Is it because we've grown up? This is still a fun movie!
Reading all the comments here, it looks like this is one of the worst films ever made, and it's absolute rubbish, Shia's character is Jar Jar Binks, etc.

But it's earning a ton of money, and the rankings (7.6) are high, so what does that tell you? That compared to the haters, MOST people came to his movie expecting a fun adventure movie and got it.

Look, the Indiana Jones movies aren't flawless. Even in the previous movies, you had to suspend belief (people melting? someone surviving a fall from a plane just on a craft? a Knight living more than 1,000 years?) and just enjoy the action scenes - and you have them here! Mutt swinging on the vines is real corny but the car chase through the jungle, complete with sword fight, fisticuffs, giant ants, etc. - they are what you can expect from an Indiana Jones movie. And Cate Blanchett is a SUPER villain, Harrison somehow makes it all believable for him to still be an action star at 60 plus, and it's great to see Marion Ravenwood again.

STAR WARS I was a major major disappointment, but this one is NOT. We have wanted to see Harrison Ford suit up as Indy again, and here he has a good cast with him, and yet we bash the movie because it isn't RAIDERS? Nothing can be as much fun as the first Indy Jones movie. But this one is still MUCH MUCH better than any adventure movie out there for the past several years.

Just watch it with an open mind. Don't expect miracles, but fun entertainment for 2 hours and you will get it.

Trivia

The pictures of Marcus (Denholm Elliott) and Henry Jones, Sr. (Sir Sean Connery) shown prominently on Indiana's (Harrison Ford's) desk, are both from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). More difficult to spot is a photograph of Indiana and Sallah (John Rhys-Davies) from Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) on the fireplace mantel in Indiana's house. A picture of Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) can be seen in the background on a cupboard when Indiana is talking to Mutt Williams (Shia LeBeouf). She is wearing her red stage dress from Club Obi-wan. A doctored photograph of a young Sir Sean Connery and River Phoenix, briefly seen in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), is also visible on a small table as Dean Stanforth (Jim Broadbent) enters the room.
