Double bad news time. Not only does the recent screening report for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull think the latest installment is a disaster, but this though could quickly become the general consensus.

Nooooooooo!

Negative Screening Report: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull


The good people at AICN have received what looks to be the second screening report for The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull to surface online. While the one we read a while back was nothing but positive, this er, not so much.

In short, this is the Indiana Movie that you were dreading. I remember seeing the two trailers and though I was excited to see the old man in action again, I was kind of worried that they seemed to be missing 'something'. That something was tension. During the whole of the movie, there was not a single moment that I thought our hero Mr. Jones (actually Colonel Jones as he was a hero in WWII now) was in any sort of peril or even significant inconvenience. In most cases, you were so many steps ahead of the characters that it was really just an arduous wait for them to get through it.


The big problem with the movie is that the traps or perilous moments are completely ass-inine and ridiculous. From a quicksand trap that Indy has time to yack on about, to being saved from said trap by LeBeef using a snake as a rope. BTW, this snake is as crappy as a Mad TV prop when they don't CG it up, and that is another failing of this movie. The fake stuff doesn't mix with the real stuff at all.

Like what you hear? No? Well, there are spoilers also, so check out the entire screening report for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull at AICN.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull opens to theaters May 22nd.
