Up to 80% now. Personally, I can't wait to see this movie (at midnight of course).

So far the reviews have all pretty much said that Ford and Shia are very good and that the remaining characters play their parts well, but aren't given much to do. But apparently the action scenes are really good, and there's a lot of them. yay!

i was hoping to keep away from the internet concerning reviews from the Cannes premiere, but after reading a few it looks promising. I think all of us Indy fans out there are assured a great timewink Just remember how Temple of Doom was criticized? i still love that film, so it's all good!

I must admit, even I looked at the ratings when the news began pouring in, despite neither wanting to nor going as far as to read a full review.

I think it's going to stay there too. I don't see it going any higher than 80% unless maybe after the movie premieres on Thursday.

I talked to my co-worker who I gave my special screening tickets to last night, I couldn't make the show, but he went and said it was great. He's a very critical guy too. He said it was very much an Indiana Jones movie; it had big action, it had great humor, and he said it was good Spielberg. So, if my co-worker Devin liked it, trust me, if you like Indiana Jones you will like part 4.

Apparently, the film got a 3 and a half minute standing ovation from the critics at Cannes! Admittedly, many films shown at Cannes do stick out tongue , but still ... could this be a sign that the early internet naysayers were wrong? Was their doom-mongering for nothing? Could "Indy IV" *actually* be ... as we've hoped and prayed it would be ... good?

Let's hope so; not long now to wait big grin !

i read a review in 'The Sun' this morning at work (i always read the paper when i should be working stick out tongue) and it was very positive to say the least. "Was it worth it? absolutley." - just one of their quoteswink

I just hope that Lucas' other statement doesn't come true - that this will be the "Phantom Menace" of the Indy franchise ! True, he was probably just referring once again to the inevitability of the film not being able to live up to the enormous hype associated with it ... but still, what a spine-chillingly frightening thing to say to people stick out tongue .

on a side note i enjoyed The Phantom Menace, but no i wouldnt want it to turn out that way either. Was that an actual statement Lucas made? what source?

Sadly, it was, yes; specifically, addressing the overwhelming anticipation that "Indy IV" has to live up to, Lucas said: "We're basically going to do The Phantom Menace. ... People's expectations are way higher than you can deliver. You could just get killed for the whole thing We would do it for fun and just take the hit with the critics and the fans ... But nobody wants to get into it unless they are really happy with it".

interesting, never saw that before thanks for the linkwink i'm no longer worried about this film. I expected the worst when the Premiere reviews came in (that it would be critically slammed for years to come) but it seems quite the opposite. If Lucas was ever gonna ruin it, Spielburg would be there to save it - that's what i think, and you cant deny Spielburg's track record - apart from films like (1941, Hook, A.I) i doubt that Indy 4 will join that group somehow. The best thing to do? pick a good review and read it - then wait for the filmwink

All enjoyable, interesting films in their own right. No need to take note of the exception when other so-called maestro's best work pales in comparison.

Sounds like Spielberg does a better job revisiting old success than George alone.

Well I just saw it, I give it a 9/10.

This is classic Indiana Jones, lots of action, a few nods to the previous movies, a few laughs, plot moved pretty fast and was pretty interesting.

Only drawbacks I found were that it takes a bit of time to adjust to the setting (1957 I think it was), so theres plenty of stuff that just kinda seems a bit out of place in an Indy film, but you get used to it about 1/3 of the way through. The whole movie is a good ride, but the climax of the film...without spoiling.....you REALLY have to suspend your disbelief. Other than that, no flaws.
