Welp, I saw this earlier this morning, and it's a 2.75/5 cheese doodler for me.
Harrison Ford still looks and plays the part well, despite his age.
Shia LeBouf doesn't screw up the movie.
Seeing Karen Allen again, although she hasn't aged as well as Harrison.
Some of the action sequences are decent... but I wished they weren't so CGI dependent. The older films were better when a lot of the stunts were done by stuntmen (or wax dummies with melting faces).
It only feels like 1/2 an Indiana Jones movie. I felt the same way about this as I did Speed Racer. 50% is good, the other 50% is average to poor.
The Macguffin in this film is rather dumb and probably should've been left to religious artifact territory. The whole "you got your Close Encounters in my Indy Jones... You got your Indy Jones in my Close Encounters" Reese's vibe just didn't sit well with me, even though I knew before the film that this was the central theme.
Tarzan Shia.... ugh!
The opening to the film. I like the warehouse sequence while in the warehouse, but when it goes to the 'fake town', I was like WTF?... even though that sequence fits the time period, it doesn't feel like an Indy movie sequence... maybe it's just me.
The "Mac" sidekick guy. I like Ray Winstone a lot as an actor, but here he's used like an extra from National Treasure. All greed, no purpose.
Spalko, for the most part, is just a big dominatrix with nothing to do.... "I vant to know...."
I can haz "Return" my $7.50, plz....?
I'm hoping Batman or Wall-E can make up for this post Iron Man drought.
EDIT: Oh yeah... I forgot. I want Harrison to teach me the "how not to lose your hat or get crushed by large military vehicles while going over 100 ft. waterfalls" trick.... x3.
