Storyline

An art collector appeals to Indiana 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 of heart. Written by Jwelch5742

The best
8 September 2018 | by alvarmarchaSee all my reviews

Even if raiders of the lost ark is the most iconic and the most famous movie of the Indiana Jones saga, the last crusade is far away beyond the other three movies. The plot, combining the goodness of God with Nazis, the actors and their work,(for me professor Henry jones is the best portrayal of Sean Connery after the untouchables) and the music from John Williams that makes this movie a classic that never gets old and that you can watch it over and over again!
