Good watch, could watch again, and can recommend.
While Harrison Ford does a great job as Indiana Jones, it is always good to see Sean Connery get involved, even if he is very passive in the action.
Then there is an unfortunate amount of flashback, but it is better than doing an “Indian Jones: Origin” movie to explain how he attained his stylish attire and phobia of snakes.
This has a quality female companion, an entertaining side character, but we’re back to Nazi’s again for villains. It almost is just a highlight of the ridiculous lengths that Nazi’s went to look for weird resources: the occult (“Hellboy”), artifacts, and investigations into alien contact.
This is a return to quality though, it takes up the more serious atmosphere of the first movie and with that concentrates on a dramatically good action adventure movie.
This is my favorite of the franchise.
Raiders Of The Last Crusade.
Indiana Jones teams up with his father to try and locate the Holy Grail. Something that the Nazis are again particularly interested in themselves.
We didn’t know it at the time, but every Indiana Jones fan on the planet presumed that The Last Crusade was to be the final film to feature the intrepid archaeologist. As it turned out, another film would surface in 2008, but casting that aside (as many would like to do), Last Crusade should, and is, judged as the trilogy closer it was meant to be.
In 1988 Steven Spielberg was deep into bringing Rain Man to fruition, all thoughts of Indiana Jones had gone by the wayside with the harshly judged part two, Temple Of Doom. In stepped George Lucas to politely remind Spielberg that they had an agreement to make another Indiana Jones picture, Spielberg no doubt obliged and humble, passed on his Rain Man work to Barry Levinson who promptly bagged himself an Oscar for the film. It can be guessed that Spielberg was probably grouchy around this period, but he needn’t have worried, because The Last Crusade provided a much needed hit for not only himself (post Empire Of The Sun), but also Lucas (Willow) and Harrison Ford (Frantic).
I mention the run up to this picture because it explains a lot on why the film is pretty much a retread of Raiders Of The Lost Ark, something that some detractors find unforgivable. Yet Last Crusade is still an immensely enjoyable adventure picture, with Spielberg proving that he was still capable of a popcorn bonanza. Using the Raiders formula and moving away from the dark flourishes of Temple Of Doom, Last Crusade is actually the simplest film of the three, but still it manages, courtesy of a sparkling casting decision, to become the most entertaining of the original trilogy. Is it better than Raiders? Of course not, but it positively rips along with sparky dialogue and an agenda of cliffhanging suspense like the adventure films of yore.
In comes Sean Connery as Dr Jones Senior, and its the picture’s trump card, because the magnificent interplay and obvious rapport with Ford (cool as a cucumber) is there for all to see. It’s this what drives the film on through the more mundane and picture filler sequences, showcasing two top wily professionals with care and consideration to their craft. The casting of Alison Doody as the main female is a poor one, and one only has to look at her subsequent career post Crusade to see she wasn’t up to the task here. Bonus comes in the form of the River Phoenix prologue, Phoenix as the young Indiana paves the way for the jaunty path that Crusade takes, whilst simultaneously giving us a nice little back story from which to launch the adventure.
Made for $48 million, the film went on to gross $474,171,806 Worldwide, now that’s a lot of people who evidently were happy with Raiders Of The Lost Ark 2! And I gleefully count myself amongst that number. 9/10
Outstanding finale (or is it the finale?)
“Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” was supposed to be the final movie in the “Indiana Jones” series. At least that’s what director Steven Spielberg and producer George Lucas said at the time this film hit theaters. But now they’ve said there will be a fourth “Indiana Jones” film. I really don’t know if that’s a good idea, because the “Last Crusade” was a fitting end to a great movie series. Harrison Ford returns for his third go around as swashbuckling hero Indiana Jones, this time accompanied by Sean Connery as Indy’s father, Dr. Henry Jones. These two actors work beautifully together as they fight off the Nazis in search for the Holy Grail. Two actors from “Raiders of the Lost Ark” reprise their roles to great effect in “Last Crusade”: Denholm Elliott as Marcus Brody and John Rhys-Davies as Sallah. Alison Doody is the heroine (good or bad?); Julian Glover is the villain; River Phoenix portrays a young Indy at the beginning to see how this character really got his start. “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” not only has great characters, it also has a decent story (taking place in 1938), plus exciting action scenes and special effects. It’s better than the second film “Temple of Doom” and comes very close to topping the first film “Raiders”. The “Indiana Jones” series should stay right where it is with the “Last Crusade” as the finale. Unless Spielberg, Lucas, and Ford can prove us wrong and make a really good fourth film in the series, we shall see. I loved all three movies in the “Indiana Jones” series. If the fourth film does gets made, I hope it’ll be equally as good as the first three.
**** (out of four)
It’s a perfect action-adventure, with elements of fantasy. The best part is the coming together of Sean Connery and Harrison Ford. One is a field agent and the other is strictly an academician.
Some films are timeless. This is one of them. No modern adventure film comes close to this.
