Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Dir: Steven Spielberg
Star: Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Denholm Elliott, Alison Doody

[2] I have to admit to being disappointed by this one. Apart from a wonderful performance by Connery, this is little more than a remake of the first in the series; Jones vs. Nazis, religious imagery, a long chase, etc. Unfortunately, it doesn't work this time - even the chase is too long (I fell asleep in the middle!). Some nice ideas aren't fully developed and there are gaping holes in the plot. The climax felt like something out of a bad fantasy game and I would have been much happier all round if it had stopped after The Temple of Doom.
