Paramount Home Entertainment | May 13, 2008 | DVD

Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade (Ws) is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
Steven Spielberg's third action-packed entry in the "Indiana Jones" series, which evokes the cliffhanger Saturday matinee serials of yesteryear. When Indy's archaeologist dad, Prof. Henry Jones, embarks on a quest for the Holy Grail, he is kidnapped by the Nazis, who also desire the priceless chalice. Naturally, Indy comes to the rescue, and joins his father in the search for the Grail. The audience is in for a wild ride "keeping up with the Joneses", as the two men battle enemies, trade insults, encounter rats, evade traps, become involved with the same woman, and meet Hitler.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Indy's Back in Style! Now this is more like it. Spielberg recaptures most, if not all, of the "Raiders" magic by casting Sean Connery as Indy's dad and making sure he and Harrison Ford share the screen as much as possible. Also making welcome returns to the series are the late Denholm Eliot as Indy's scatter-brained boss and John Rhys-Davies as Sallah, the Egyptian digger and free spirit. This time, Indy crosses the globe in search of both his dad (finds him quickly, which is fortunate for the audience) and no less than the Holy Grail of Arthurian legend. Vicious Nazis abound, both the regular army kind and, in a welcome twist, the hootchie-mama kind, played by the tragically named Allison Doody. The main attraction here is the fantastic chemistry between the bickering Joneses. Connery nails his performance as the erudite and crusty elder Jones and gives Ford plenty of exasperating moments. Factor in the first film's matinee-style thrills and chills (wisely toned down after the second's idiotic overkill) and you've got yerself a winnah! One problem, though: Spielberg's tendency to sacrifice character believablity in the name of a quick, tossed off gag. Witness the end of the otherwise exhilirating tank chase sequence. While it can't measure up to the original (few, if any, action films have), "Last Crusade" is well worth the time.
