Spielberg & Co did an excellent job!
This certainly is an underrated movie. Many have claimed that "The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" has ruined the old movies and that it sucks compared to them. I beg to differ.
This movie is much like the old ones and that might actually be the reason why so many dislike it. It's style and concept is no different from them and I guess that's why people think TKotCS is bad. Because it is very much like an old movie, but with improved effects. Everything is still there; the humor, the excitement and the charm.
Right at the start of the movie when Indy lifts up his at and the old melody began to play, I started to smile and I didn't stop smiling until the movie was over. I knew that I was not going to be disappointed, and I was totally right. The tempo verifies a lot, sometimes it's going really fast and sometimes it's pretty slow. But it evens out almost perfectly. The use of CGI is very smooth and they don't use too much of it.
The actors are absolutely fantastic. Harrison Ford is just like the old Indiana Jones we know. Cate Blanchett proves once more that she is one of the finest actresses alive today. It would not surprise me if the Academy Award members gave her attention for this role. John Hurt does an interesting interpretation of his character as well.
But of off course there is a little negative side to the movie. The characters are just too many. We have Indy, Mutt, Irina, Marion, Mac and Ox. Plus all the communists and hooligans and whatever they are, (no offense).
And some have complained about the story being too unnatural. Well what did you expect? It's Indiana Jones for Christ's sake. It would be unnatural if it wasn't unnatural.
