Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
As the Clone Wars near an end, the Sith Lord Darth Sidious steps out of the shadows, at which time Anakin succumbs to his emotions, becoming Darth Vader and putting his relationships with Obi-Wan and Padme at risk.
After the rebels have been brutally overpowered by the Empire on their newly established base, Luke Skywalker takes advanced Jedi training with Master Yoda, while his friends are pursued by Darth Vader as part of his plan to capture Luke.
During the Cold War, Soviet agents watch Professor Henry Jones when a young man brings him a coded message from an aged, demented colleague, Harold Oxley. Led by the brilliant Irina Spalko, the Soviets tail Jones and the young man, Mutt, to Peru. With Oxley's code, they find a legendary skull made of a single piece of quartz. If Jones can deliver the skull to its rightful place, all may be well; but if Irina takes it to its origin, she'll gain powers that could endanger the West. Aging professor and young buck join forces with a woman from Jones' past to face the dangers of the jungle, Russia, and the supernatural. Written by
Steven Spielberg originally wanted the film to be released exclusively in 35mm, but changed his mind and allowed a small digital release after being shown how this version would look. It was shown digitally at a theater if all of its projectors were digital, or if its 35mm projectors were only in smaller auditoriums. See more »
The coastal tribes and cultures of Peru didn't use cerbatanas (or blowpipes) with poisoned darts. Those are the Amazon's jungle tribes, very far away from Nazca and in the other side of the Andes. See more »
Oh, that can't be good.
All personnel, it is now one minute to zero time. Put on goggles or turn away. Do not remove goggles or face burst until ten seconds after first light.
That can't be good at all.

I'll confess up-front that I wasn't expecting as much from this film as its three prequels. Harrison Ford is twenty years older, see, and I just couldn't imagine an Indy movie under those circumstances. But he did it, Indy did it, and the movie was an absolute wide-eyed riot! The action outdid itself in all its glory, all the humor of the chase scenes were fantastic, and overall Indy IV is one awesome come-back for Indy and Marion! See it ... you won't be disappointed. *I* wasn't, not in the least! :)
On the other hand, I saw this film with my sister and her husband (we're all 50-ish). My sister's opinion and rating would likely be a shrug of the shoulders. Her husband wasn't in the least impressed. Silly people! ;)
I've been an Indy action and humor fan from the beginning ... maybe that's a must to enjoy this movie? Hey, the action's killer and I laughed my butt off and rate this movie the perfect 10 it deserves! Enjoy it! :)
