Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) – 2/5

What a disappointment, especially given how great the previous two films were. It’s obvious Spielberg was just going through the motions with this one. The script was definitely lacking in story and dialogue, and Sean Connery was surprisingly not very good in the role of Indy’s father. I just didn’t buy what was essentially a poorly constructed and really clichéd father-son relationship. And I understand the principle behind Connery’s having been cast in the role, but he ultimately can’t pull it off, and ends up bringing the movie down.

And to make things worse, the film is all over the place, none of it interesting or logical even in the zany “action movie” sense of the phrase. A shame.
