Indiana Jones, famed adventurer and archaeologist acquires a diary that holds clues and a map with no names to find the mysterious Holy Grail- which was sent from his father, Dr. Henry Jones, in Italy. Upon hearing from a private collector, Walter Donavan, that the mission for the Holy Grail went astray with the disappearance of his father, Indiana Jones and museum curator Marcus Brody venture to Italy in search of Indy's father. However, upon retrieving Dr. Henry Jones in Nazi territory, the rescue mission turns into a race to find the Holy Grail before the Nazis do- who plan to use it for complete world domination for their super-race. With the diary as a vital key and the map with no names as a guide, Indiana Jones once again finds himself in another death defying adventure of pure excitement. Written by commanderblue

After Henry subdues the Nazi soldier inside the tank with his fountain pen, we see the tank's right turret pointed straight at the driver's side window of an army truck driving alongside the tank, but when Henry runs over and fires the turret, the shot hits the truck on the rear compartment, behind the driver's side.

Tied With The First: Great Entertainment
15 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spoilers Ahead:

Yes, let's get the attacks on the movie out of the way first. Alison Doody, while stunningly beautiful, is a dreadful actress that will really makes you miss Karen Allen. The grail part with the knight tends to get a little silly, like what is he going to do there now? The Kirkegaardian Leap Of Faith was well done and had great spiritual power even to non Christians. Now, the movie is non stop action and Ford with Connery is why the film is such a treasure. Indy changes visibly under his baneful stare; the chemistry between the two actors with the constant running Junior joke is great. They play so well off of each other. The movie has many great action set pieces like a fantastic motorcycle chase. He even meets Hitler and gets the Grail diary autographed. There are lots of little touches of levity all through the movie that lighten it. Raiders had a little levity but nothing on this level. Who will ever forget how they say goodbye in Germany? What happens to people without a ticket? I am not a Steven Spielberg fan but I adore this and the first one. Temple of Doom, which I waited in the hot sun for three hours, in a huge line, I am still trying to forget. The pacing of this movie is like lightning.

From the opening with young Indy, the movie does not stop it is Go Go Go. I watch it over and over on Blu Ray. The interactions between them is so well done, often Ford just wilts when Connery looks over at him. This is the treat of this movie; please, you want to compare Capshaw with Indy in Temple Of Doom? How about Short Round? The designated Asian character so Stevie gets out of the racism charge for his dreadful portrayal of Asians? I am not a Christian but even as a theistic existentialist I found it moving and inspirational. Glover is a great villain you may remember him as Cristados the villain in the Bond film For Your Eyes Only. He is a very good actor. Denholm Elliot is great here: there is a line where Indy tells the villains how Brody is this genius and they are done for. The next scene Brody is wandering around, lost, talking to Arabs in English. The writing is so funny, the action scenes including one with a giant tank are without equal.

I waited in line to see this when it came out. When Temple Of Doom ended, people quietly got up and some angry mumbling was heard. This got applause as they ride triumphantly away. Whatever I may have against Steven, the man could make an exciting action movie without equal. The casting of Connery was such a stroke of genius. It will make you return to the movie over and over. I love when Indy shoots a bunch of Nazis and yells,"DON'T CALL ME JUNIOR!!!!" While it is funny, it never gets silly or campy, it gets deadly serious at the end. I Adore This Movie. What a Treasure!!
