I cannot agree with Jellyneckr....the Young Indiana Jones films are
excellent, full of good stories, good music and good acting, l think Sean
Patrick Flannery does a great job.
Jellyneckr says this kind of film will appeal to the very young nly...well thanks for the compliment l`m over 50, and l have about 16 of the Young Indiana Jones films.....so l will give them all a good mark because l think they have kept the period and action up to par with the main films...do watch them if you can
Enjoyable hokum and a throwback to the days of Saturday morning serials
at the local cinema. A young hero, evil baddies and a dastardly plot
that must be foiled! If you like the old type Boys Own adventures, this
will be lots of fun. Just don't expect all the nuances of today's
modern film making. This is all action, seat of your pants stuff for
almost 80 minutes.
I felt transported back to my youth and can recommend this series of films, some are better than others and others are worse, but they all have a sense of fun.
Also nice to spot all the faces from British television, one actor from long running UK soap, Coronation Street, plays a German World War 1 officer. Quite a change of pace!
A young Catherine Zeta Jones plays a Mati Hari spy before she went on to Hollywood blockbusters and marriage or vice versa....
As young Indy, Sean Patrick Flanery makes an engaging hero and like the rest of the cast in this, looks to be enjoying himself.
Although not big budget, this betrays it's straight to video origins and plays like a good Hollywood blockbuster and I've seen far worse films with much more money spent on them.
And not much to say bad about it. Very interesting plot, and has a magnificent ending. I like Indy as a spy, it seems so appropriate to him that relates to his later life. The Australians have an interesting trek of their own. T. E. Lawerence has interesting points and is portrayed well. I recommend this to any person who likes Young Indy.

After an unfortunate downturn into broad comedy in the last feature,
this next adventure sends Indiana Jones (Sean Patrick Flanery) to the
Middle East, where in his capacity as intelligence officer he helps the
British and their Australian allies take the town of Beersheba.
These days, you could easily re-title the adventure "Indiana Jones vs. James Bond" as Indy has a tense punch-up with German Intelligence head Schiller, played by the latest 007 Daniel Craig. Catherine Zeta-Jones is fiery and seductive as a treacherous double-agent, and there is some fine support from Cameron Daddo and Todd Boyce as two Australian soldiers, as well as Colin Baker as a British Commander. It's also nice to see Douglas Henshall back as Indy's friend T.E Lawrence.
The whole adventure is very skilfully directed, and the script doesn't miss a trick with lots of scheming, ruses and double-crosses perpetrated by Indy and his enemies to keep the viewer in suspense. The outcome however is never in doubt but this doesn't matter as it is still good fun to watch.
Good to see the series get back on track with this.
