Spoiler Warning - Post may contain spoilers

Finally got to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I’m not going to over analyse the plot because its the same basic follow the MacGuffin of the previous three films. Its fun, its action packed and I got to play the game of trying to spot where they used Vue and where the live action footage began. Basicly a fun switch your brain off film in the style of the old serials with a nod to the passage of time.

I just hope the hints dropped about Mutt Williams’ character are not an attempt to give the series a way to go on as a zimmer frame Harrison Ford would look silly doing a sequel twenty years from now. I’m not trying to be a kill joy but there is a point at which things like satalite photogtaphy, mobile phones and a thousand other modern tools make the suspension of disbelief for this style of action adventure a lot harder.
