Moving instalment, 31 October 2009
Author: Alain English from London, England
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
Unlike previous instalments in the series, this one is not a
distillation of two previously separate stories but is one whole
complete story in and of itself. Here Indiana Jones (again played with
consistent earnestness by Sean Patrick Flannery) is sent down the Congo
river to retrieve a supply of weapons that may come in handy in the
Allies war effort. Unfortunately, the intense heat and jungle disease
take a terrible toll on Indy and his troops, before he receives help
from an unexpected source...
Whilst lacking the intrigue and action of it's immediate predecessors, this is still a brilliant story. The devastating effects of Indy's expedition are well-captured on screen, and the series throws in some thought-provoking dialogue on the real nature of the war. It really comes alive with the introduction of Albert Schweitzer (Friedrich von Thun), a legendary medical genius who saves Indy's life and then persuades him to revise his notions of good and evil...
Thought-provoking and very well-written.

Is that title long enough?, 19 June 2009
Author: Shawn Watson (email@example.com) from The Underverse
Clocking in at 13 words this Young Indy adventure surely has one of the
longest titles I have ever encountered.
Indy and Remy are still in Africa, and thanks to Indy's brazen attitude in the battlefield he's promoted to Captain before being given an important mission where he must secure delivery of a cache of machine guns. In order to do this he and his men must march through the Congo, where all but a couple of them die of jungle disease. After a middle segment that echoes the African Queen in more ways than one they are rescued by Doctor Albert Schweitzer.
But the Doctor is German, and is soon kicked out of Africa despite all of the good work he has done.
OtGaToL (how about that for an acronym?) is all about Melodrama and features very little action. Once the opening battle is over it's all talk, talk and talk all the way to the end. If I wanted a soap opera I'd watch Days of Our Lives.

Wheres the spirit?, 25 January 2003
Author: videojakob from Jelling, Denmar
Actually, it isnt bad. Its just not Indiana Jones. For some reason when I saw the video, it lacked the touch of the movies. But it is okay if you really want to see an Indy movie, but know the old ones by heart. Just remember: it is a boiled down affair.
