Some people seem to bash this movie because it isn't as good as the original Indiana Jones trilogy. I agree with that part: it is not a good Indiana Jones movie but it for sure isn't a bad movie either. If this movie wasn't called "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" but "the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" people wouldn't hate it so much. But now it is compared to those timeless classics and that if something disappoints people.
The first half of the movie had some of the entertaining elements of the first movies and I liked it. The second half wasn't even near that. The plot kept getting worse and worse by every "twist" and "drama" in it until the stupid and cheesy ending which didn't work this time even though the other movies ended in a cheesy way also. But you must remember that Indiana Jones movies have always been Spielberg's attempt to make "B-movies" and you must watch them in such a mood also.
Action scenes in this movie were ok. Not as rememberable as in the older movies though. I must say that I got bored by all the chasing and fighting in the jungle because that scene seemed to last forever and had no point at all.
In short: Not a bad adventure movie but not a good Indiana Jones movie. An OK movie overall.
