Saw it yesterday, absolutely loved it. It's probably-and this is no joke-one of the best action movies ever made. The fight scenes were incredible, and when coupled with some fantastic performances...

Pretty much seconded entirely. Raiders, I don't know why you perceive Harrison's career as tumbling downhill for fourteen years. Most of the movies he was in post-CS have done quite well at the box...
