Trivia

The shot of Indy (Chris) running from the boulder right behind him that tracks backwards with him was achieved by Jayson constricting himself into a shopping cart and pointing the camera at Chris - and Chris pushed the shopping cart with Jayson in it, his hands on the cart out of frame. See more »

Low rating is bogus
6 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too cannot fathom why the rating is so low unless a bunch of people put in bogus ratings. Up until a major showing in Minneapolis in June 2007 (a week and a half ago from this post), I doubt many people have ever even seen this movie in its entirety - making the 51 ratings pretty suspect.

If you know the background then watching this movie is more thrilling than watching the original.

Incidentally, Paramount (the original Raiders studio) has just optioned the life story of the kids who made this movie. I'm eagerly awaiting the "movie of the movie of the movie"!!!
