The movie was a huge disappointment! All i really liked was the characters. But the story was really weak. Why did Lucas decide to put aliens in the movie? That had to be the worst idea since jar jar binks!
AND Darth Maul.okay I finally saw this movie last weekend and here is MY review.yeah I agree the story was REALLY weak and I found it to be a huge disappointment as well.I know i don't understand WHY he went with aliens in the movie. This movie did not measure up to the greatness of the original trilogy.It really felt like it was too rushed.Like they were just trying to get something out just in the nick of time.That they didn't think carefully about it when making this movie,no real thought process into it.
From the very beginning I just had this bad feeling it was going to be bad when it started off with that corny and unnecessary scene of that jeep driving over that chipmunk or whatever animal that was in the ground.totally unnecessary and corny.Just seemed to be going for cheap laughs.and that ant scene was also corny as hell as well and also totally stupid.real dumb.I could see it MAYBE the time when the trio was there and having them there,but the first time? totally corny and dumb. and then those ants coming out of nowhere and coming together like that.so stupid and ridiculous.
and the part where they went over the waterfall 3 times and survived with no bruises or anthing,not ONE person hurt at all.Okay I could swallow the first TWO times that happened,but that third time? that fall was much more dangerous than the other two and someone would have got hurt badly.not very good writing at all.I know the other indy jones had unrealistic moments in them as well but I was still able to enjoy THOSE films because like i said,they seemed cleverly well thought out where this one just seemed rushed.complete waste of a movie,should have stayed buried.

For this Indiana Jones something different had to be used. The previous Indiana Jones films involved some sort of Religious artifact. Spielberg cleverly switched gears into a more aliens storyline. As I said before, putting Indiana Jones in the 50s was the perfect connection. That was the decade that Science Fiction kick into high gear.
I was glad to see other than a religious artifact as a plot device. Aliens are one of humanity greatest mystery.

All I can say Dwarf is that I think he said exactly the way I feel about it in these two sentences here.That he hit the nail right on the head about the story being weak.It felt rushed and not well thought out at all.I never felt that way about the other three.I know this is off topic here but since we talked about it before, till the next Batman movie comes out Im sticking to Ironman as the movie i will go back and see multiple times.I suggest you hurry up and see Ironman as well and do the same thing.

I just knew from the beginning of the movie when they showed that totally unnessary CGI effects of that gopher coming out of his hole that the movie was going to be corny and bad.chessy as hell.They were clearly just going for laughs.The other INDY movies didnt have cheesy stuff like that in them.
