When Indy is held captive in the Soviet's tent, Mac enters and they have a conversation. Indy then turns his head to his left, looking straight at Mac. Just before Indy makes his threat about what he'll do to Mac when he gets loose, there is an angle change, and Indy is suddenly staring straight ahead, with no time to turn his head in between shots. He then turns his head back to look Mac in the face again. See more »
Have not read all the comments (there are certainly a lot!), but just the first bunch makes me feel like I saw a different movie from the rest of the viewers. I went with the expectation that Indy is now much older and things wouldn't be quite as quickly paced. I found that both Indy and Marion look great for their ages. The bits of gray hair and wrinkles make them seem more real and I was in great admiration for their acting skills which I enjoyed as I did with the other three. There were so many little moments of fun and enjoyment, as well as lots of action and that splendid music, that I liked it enough to see it more than once. I guess I was not expecting perfection, or doubting that the characters, after all these years, would be older and a little slower. Granted, the adventures of the other three were perhaps a bit more exciting.......but I loved the premise of Indy having a son he didn't know about, of him still being in love with Marion even after all these years, and having the answers for getting out of the tight spots which was learned through years of adventures, while his new-found son learned from him. I liked all the characters pretty much, except for the role Cate Blanchett played. She was interesting, but not very threatening. Since it was the 50's, it had to be Russian, not German, so that was appropriate. I, for one will be looking forward to getting a copy of it to watch again as I have the others. I was not disappointed.
