Storyline

It's 1916, and Indiana Jones is living with his dad in Princeton, New Jersey. Spring break is fast approaching, and all Indy can think of is taking his girlfriend Nancy (daughter of cliffhanger author Edward Stratemeyer) to the prom in a slick new Bugati. The car's foreign engine is impossible to get parts for, but a favor from a professor working at Thomas Edison's laboratory raises his hopes. His plans are sidetracked when a mysterious break-in, the theft of an electric motor, and rumors of German spies result in a mystery that only Indy and Nancy can unravel. Indy and his father then head to the southwest to visit family in Albuquerque. With his mischievous cousin Frank, Indy heads to Columbus, New Mexico to sew some wild oats when the town is suddenly attacked by Pancho Villa and his riders. Playing hero, Indy follows the Villistas into the desert and is soon taken captive. As a 16-year old itching for a good fight, Indy is stirred by Villa's words, and joins his cause, riding ...

Moving towards the Indy we know
4 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This DVD movie shows a young Indy more familiar to the feature film Indiana Jones we know. With the move back to the US for the first part, the story has fast forwarded several years and Indy is now played by Sean Patrick Flannery as what looks to be a 17-18 year old. Interestingly it is clear that Indy's mother character has died though this is never explained. Lloyd Owen makes his penultimate appearance in this video series and his interaction with a new actor comes off well. Flannery does reasonably well in this role, albeit the high school prom context of this first half of this TV movie means his character comes off as a sort of cross between Indy and Marty McFly from Back to the Future. The subtext of corrupt oil companies and the sense of a distant perspective on World War 1 are quiet effective, and there is a lot more action in this episode than the Corey Carrier productions.

In the second part of the story Indy heads off on a break to Mexico but is captured by a band of outlaws and introduced to Pancho Villa. This part of the story is quite political and its interesting to see Indy's character begin to take some interesting views on issues. His character goes through an interesting evolution and decisions his character makes sets the character up to adventure on with a new sidekick. Flannery's characterisation in this episode is much more interesting, and again, some integral action sequences are well handled.

A solid start for this particular incarnation of Indiana Jones.
