Storyline

An art collector appeals to Jones to embark on a search for the Holy Grail. He learns that another archaeologist has disappeared while searching for the precious goblet, and the missing man is his own father, Dr. Henry Jones. The artifact is much harder to find than they expected, and its powers are too much for those impure in heart. Written by Jwelch5742

Trivia

Denholm Elliott and John Rhys-Davies make their last appearances in the Indiana Jones franchise, as Marcus Brody and Sallah, respectively. They were brought back in this film to give it a lighter tone, in contrast to the dark tone of the previous film. However, both characters are acknowledged in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008). See more »

Goofs

When Indy and his father are escaping from the castle, right before the motorcycle chase, they set off an empty boat to distract the Nazis. Inside the boat there is a blanket and if you look closely you can see an arm that comes out from under the blanket and grabs the boat's rudder. See more »

You call this archaeology? Sure do!
19 August 1999 | by Mister-6See all my reviews

One thing you gotta say for this series: it isn't boring.

And "Last Crusade" has enough thrills, chills and spills to fill up a few dozen old Saturday afternoon serials.

Right down the line, everything about this film is superb. Ford and Connery do the father and son routine superbly. Rhys-Davies returns as Sallah, as does Elliott who plays Brody with as much befuddlement as Connery does his role. And who can blame him?

And the FX: there's so many you lose count. But don't bother, just sit back, relax and get swept up in the moment. You can't help yourself but to get into this "Crusade".

Ten stars. A classic Ford with a bright Sean.
