Most of the film is just as good as Raiders, but then there are some scenes which I think are a little stupid; the scene where Indy meets Hitler, the scene where the plane goes through the tunnel and the scene where Indy's father takes down a plane using his umbrealla to scare some birds. ” - nielslauridsenstudio
