Storyline

September, 1916. As Corporal Henri Defense, young Indiana Jones has become a motorcycle courier stationed near the trenches at Verdun. His friend Remy is still in the trenches, and both grow more disillusioned about the war each day. Chosen to sneak into enemy territory on account of his gift for languages, Indy overhears German officers speaking of the imminent arrival of their most powerful artillery guns, nicknamed Big Bertha. A month later Indy and Remy are granted leave to Paris, where Indiana meets the exotic dancer Mata Hari at a dinner party. He falls for her immediately, but soon finds out she is dating other men as well, including the French Minister of War. Written by Il Tesoro

Quotes

Remy Baudouin: I can't believe you actually did that. You could have ended up in front of a firing squad!
Indiana Jones: They'll never figure it out.
Remy Baudouin: But still, you lost your courier's job, and you put yourself back in the mud. You're crazy!
Indiana Jones: It seemed like a good idea at the time. Some men got to live another day.
Remy Baudouin: You were living in the chateau. Warm, dry, close to so much good food. Close to so many beautiful women in the village.
Indiana Jones: Not that village. No, the real women are in Paris, Remy.
Remy Baudouin: Paris. Don't talk about it. What ...

A weak, soap opera-lite story
25 May 2009 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

After his escape from a German POW castle Indy ends up as a motorcycle courier for the French against the backdrop of the Battle of Verdun. Remy ends up being injured before being sent back into harms way overnight. Indy then decides to sabotage communication between the higher officers to prevent another troop massacre.

Then, on a short leave of action, he and Remy travel to Paris to stay where Indy stays with a friend of his dad's. Almost immediately he is smitten by Mata Hari and drawn into her rather boring web of deceit.

The pyrotechnics are impressive but the fast-moving action of the first half comes to a sudden halt as Indy gets wound-up in the soap opera love story that follows. And what's with the flash-forwards of Mata Hari's death? That made no sense at all.

Definitely the weakest Young Indy yet.
