Should be first 'adventures'
12 March 2008 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

The title is a bit of an inappropriately long mouthful and the film is clearly split into two separate halves that have nothing to do with each other. I'm not really fussed about this, as they both have enough plot and developments to keep the viewer interested.

It opens with Young Indy explaining how he is no ordinary child before being shipped off around the world as his dad (Lloyd Owen doing a very good Sean Connery impression) goes on a lecture tour. Though his mother and private tutor don't take too kindly to his willingness to get into loads of trouble.

When in Egypt Indy meets Laurence of Arabia and helps unearth a tomb in which a priceless headpiece is stolen (this plot is never resolved but I assume it will in later instalments). In Morocco he is kidnapped by slave traders and makes pals with a young servant.

That's it really. Nothing really involving but it is nice, light entertainment. The educational aspect of Indy meeting historical figures and learning a wide range of things from them is not in the least distracting and is actually convincing as what inspires him to be the famous archaeologist that he ends up being.

A promising start, I don't why John Williams didn't allow for his theme to be used though. It was even in the video games after all. And since this is a genuine Lucasfilm production I was surprised it was not included even if it would have been a bit out of place considering the material.
