It was a long wait but it's great to see Indy back again. I've seen it twice and liked it even more the second time ! If you're a fan, you won't be disappointed.
An emotional farewell to the greatest action/adventure character of all time. While the movie had some flaws, it reaches some terrific highs as well (particularly the opening sequence of a younger-Indy in the middle of WWII action, and the thrilling climax sequences which I will not spoil). A worthwhile adventure for Dr. Jones.
Wasn't sure what to expect from the mixed reviews. Too many random car chases, explosions, shootings for the first 30 minutes, like so many "action movies" seem obligated to have. Disappointed that Indy and Miriam appeared as aged/feeble as they did, make up and a different story line could have helped that. Antonio Banderas role was so minor. But the last half hour, with the trip back in time to an ancient war, was EPIC! JUST WOW! Unexpected! Made the movie! Hence, my 5 star rating.
I didn't like to see how old he got and still doing stunts. They had a stunt double, so unbelievable. They should have given the role to a younger man. Indiana Jones should have just retired himself from it. Maybe if he had a son who looked like him, it would have worked better.
It brought back familiar characters and tied the movie back to Indiana’s roots fighting the Nazis.
Effects & storyline were weak
Movie was tooooo long with chase scenes that could have been much shorter. Too many unbelievable scenes and why have a kid in the movie again performing stunts not practical like flying a plane ?
Actors from early movies very good
A waste of time and money.
How the movie showed what’s going on with child trafficking in this world
I’m not sure what the people giving this a poor review were expecting from this franchise finale but coming off of the last outing (kingdom of the Crystal Skull) I was pleasantly surprised, no it’s not Raider’s of the Lost Ark or The Last Crusade, it’s not classic era Spielberg, nothing really is. That kind of movie magic is nearly impossible to recapture. But it comes much closer to that territory than what Crystal Skull was doing in 2008. Dial of Destiny gives Indy fans almost everything we could want from one last adventure, the search for a mysterious new artifact, exotic locales, classic tomb raiding misadventures and spectacular action set pieces set to a John Williams score, including a flashback with an impressively de-aged Harrison Ford fighting Nazis on a train during WW2. My only complaint is that it’s not Raider’s of the Last Ark, but let’s be realistic here, nothing ever will be again.
Crash and burn, Hollyweird. Nobody takes your anti-fanfics seriously anymore.
What a thrill to see this ending of my favorite movie series, finally. After a roller coaster of emotional whiplash of will it, won't it, date pushes, etc. it finally came and exceeded my expectations. From the way ot opened, to all the iconic moments from past films being revealed in their own unique way, and the ending that was completely unexpected, that movie delivered everything and then some. I've seen it three times, so far. And it's so much fun.
The movie was action packed and the actors were amazingly talented and kept their audience engaged and sitting on edge of my seat . It had some great action scenes and done humor . The set designs and costumes were really cool.
I wish we hadn’t gone. It will forever ruin my memories of the series. “IF” you are a true Indy fan, stay home and keep the good memories you have. What a shame !
Liked the fact that it brought back some nice memories. Harrison Ford still can play that part well Could use a little more action but overall loved the movie and I am 80 years old.
The flashback scenes were fun. Don’t think that “Wombat” can carry the franchise forward; just not as resourceful as the original Indy. Actually thought they could’ve cut 15-20 minutes on the Archimedes cave scenes. Those sort of dragged. The golf cart chase scenes were well done.
So ridiculous, corny and stupid. I fell asleep
They have turned Indiana Jones into an old bumbling fool and trying to replace him with one of the most annoying "actresses" there has ever been.
If you loved all the earlier Indiana Jones movies, you will love this one too!!
Great addition to the franchise. A wonderful deconstruction of the character. Really a movie ahead of its time.
I LIKE IT VERY MUCH. HOPE EVERYONE WILL SEE IT. SOMETIME SOON. I WILL BUY IT, WHEN IT COME OUT ON DVD, SOON.
Disrespectful, mean crap.
Quite possibly the worst movie ever made
Excellent acting and story line, it is as good as the raiders of the lost ark.
The computer scenes for back and foregrounds were a bit "cheap"ly done, but I like Indiana Jones for the action. There was plenty of it!
Very good,fun movie
I actually really enjoyed this movie as a fan of the franchise growing up, it's fun and light-hearted, it makes you laugh and I cried at the ending.
No thrilling moment in the movie… just boring
Too many stunts and not enough script. There was very little opportunity to connect with the characters. The movie was literally one stunt after another. I was disappointed!
If you have trouble sleeping, I recommend this movie.
This movie was much better than I was lead to expect by the anti - woke crowd of which I have to agree with a number of times. I think the one star ratings/one line comments are only made by trolls who have nothing better to do with their very sad, pathetic lives. This was better than the Crystal Skull. I thought that the female lead, at times, was a bit too irritating and I do not like kids in my adult movies. That said, there was enough action to go around and did love the ending scene. The cgi effects are astonishing at times. Also could have been been shorter.
Abysmal script, 100 y old Indy and real stunts replaced with CGI non-sense. Worst than Crystal Skull?
The worst Indiana move of all. It was boring!
Action thrills more action GREAT ENDING brilliant! Better than all the others.
This was a wonderful ending to a great series. It ran true to the other Indy movies. I loved it.
Similar to Lost Ark and Holy Grail.
I loved that this! It was entertaining and a bit sentimental toward the end. Worth the time and money! ??
Simply superb! Plenty of thrills and keeps you guessing!
