Contentar Best movie of this year hands down!
CrawlerChunky In truth, there is barely enough story here to make a film.
Sarita Rafferty There are moments that feel comical, some horrific, and some downright inspiring but the tonal shifts hardly matter as the end results come to a film that's perfect for this time.
Cristal The movie really just wants to entertain people.
cinemajesty Movie Review: "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" (1984)Starting out with one of the greatest opening sequences ever received in Hollywood motion pictures, director Steven Spielberg, just arriving after two major movie hits with "E.T.-the Extra-Terrestrial" (1982) for Universal and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981) for Paramount, the legendary Hollywood Studio, founded in 1912, presenting an understanding effort to establishment a worldwide trademarking character with "Indiana Jones" aka Henry Jones Jr., performed with star-approval as reprising wits to naturalistic-looking action-beats by leading man Harrison Ford, whose character in presuming his first excursion abroad in Shanghai of 1935 mixing up with a Chinese Gentlemen Gangster Syndicate, meeting variete singer "Willie Scott", performed as fun-loving as classic blonde actress Kate Capshaw, in order to steal away the price of survival in major diamond-poison-vaccine screwball beating scene, rescued by supporting character "Short Round", a 13-year Vietnamese boy driving cars, handling hostile weaponry and getting thrown off a plane with super-hero archaeologist "Indiana Jones" and almost hostage-like taken gentleman-preferring-high-class-woman "Willie" into the depth of the Indian Jungle.Director Steven Spielberg keeps pace throughout the picture, even when the screenplay based on story by executive producer George Lucas tends to be overloaded, where despite plenty scene of joy, smiles and almost-musical-like entertainment, the action, which includes car chases, last-second crashing plane jump-outs, lifeboat mountain rundowns to the title-given fights with less pistol, more sword-to-knife and natural fist to rescue children from underground child labor, when nevertheless utmost serious themes of rural Indian village starvation, voodoo magic procedures and a brainwashed child ruler controlled by nemesis-making, death-mongering, dark-cult-indulging priest called "Mola Ram", given face by British Indian territory actor Amrish Pouri (1932-2005) challenges "Indiana Jones" to visual-compelling day-time bridge fight to Hollywood event movie proportions that cannot prevail under the genre mixing crime-adventure-drama-action, when the comic-like humor scenes in the jungle between constant fighting Willie & Indiana, especially concerning perfume on Indian elephant heads, open monkey heads for desert or constant female screams of disgust echoing through dungeons of an Indian palace, which take out most of the so-badly-needed suspense toward a dark-magic-cult with white-dressed virgin sacrifices and heart-ripping chest grips, where "Raiders of the Lost Ark" found magically the balance within the relationship of "Marion Ravenwood & Indiana Jones" in mutual chase of comprehending the powers of "The Ark" of just being the classic Hollywood adventure-movie for the ages.

jodyfranz I haven't seen this movie in a long time. I gave it a 6 since I am such an Raiders of the Lost Ark Fan.This movie was kind of annoying, it should have been Indiana Jones and the screaming sidekicks. Both of them grated on my last nerve. Since becoming a dad I find violence towards kids intolerable to watch now so there is that too. After having eaten lots of Indian dishes I found the dinner scene just too stupid to even be funny. As each thing that bugged me cropped up it added to the pile so much so I found myself nitpicking the realism of a movie, which I can usually just ignore and enjoy it for what it is, but not with this one. Truly disappointing. Stick with Raiders of the Lost Ark, a classic that won't let you down.
A I guess Willie was swept up in the action. Why else did she get on the plane? Nice mini-scene with Dan Aykroyd.How much can you make flying chickens from China to India? Willie is the queen of rubbernecking.Iconic crash background scene.The sheer bewilderment on the villagers faces as they watch this ridiculous white woman.The "sweetheart" would not fly today.I forgot about Willie's camping experience."I very little. You cheat very big"... great line.Dinner is another great scene.Short Round has a fear of women.The ceremony has heart, but was super creepy watching as a kid.Company meeting over. Back to your desks.That's a remarkable stone throw.That's a horrible mug.I forgot about the voodoo.Willie's leaving a bad Yelp review.Mola Ram is very good at creepy inflection.After all the complaining about being wet Willie's situation has swung too far the other way.Sweet escape door move from Mola Ram.I never noticed Short Round fending off fiends in the background while Indy was raising Willie.That's a super human punch to send that guard sliding so far.Love the escaping kids kicking the fine dinnerware just because.Vicious heart punch.Love Willie asking the huge guard what's written by with Indy :). He's not gonna tell ya. If he did they'd have to pay him more.Rusty saw to the belly skin. Ouch! Willie shadow boxing.Pudding.Cheer! Several people died horribly! Great roller coaster thru bridge scenes.Only a true believer would make that cart-to-cart jump.Mola Ram is so often very pleased with himself.This movie keeps bouncing between element extremes.No pistol to help vs swords this film.Just like Han Solo with the stormtroopers.There is no point for Mola Ram to move himself and his prisoners onto the bridge.They are so surprised. He's been holding the sword above his head for minutes! Total perception failure.Why you hitting yourself? Infinite Whilhelm Screams in this movie.How did all those kids take longer to arrive?
pphjmkb02 Worst movie of the series. Disgusting / horror movie. You do not want to watch it unless you want to have nightmares. Instead of having a story, they make you look at disgusting things happening in every scene (eating snakes, drinking human blood).Terrible and bad movie.
