Indiana Jones 4 is a decent sequel to the previous three Jones series. Unlike Pirates of the Caribbean, the sequel named Dead Man’s Chest was the first movie that actually made me fall asleep in the movie theater.
I generally enjoyed watching Jones 4. However, there are two things in the movie with which I want to find fault:
Does Shia LaBeouf have to transport his motorcycle all the way to Peru, and said a stupid line later in the movie “I lost my bike”. What is the point? Although he does handle his dagger with dexterity in a scene.
The ending of the movie is very unfair. I mean, by contract, whoever returns the crystal skull will be rewarded. The Russian Colonel played by Cate Blanchett returned the skull through a series of arch-villain acts. Despite the means she achieved her goal, she should get her rewarded as was promised. But it turned out that aliens infused into her brain was too much for her to handle, and she blow into dusts.
Wait a minute, aren’t the aliens supposed to be smart enough to know that too much knowledge will destroy her instead of doing the errand runner good? Still the aliens chose to destroy her by giving too much she could handle. Guess what? I think the aliens have just showed how untrustworthy they were, and no earthling would ever do the job for them again.
