As much as I used to revel in denying its existence, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull isnít the Jar-Jar-Binks-filled, sand-everywhere, Han-Shot-first travesty thatís otherwise known as George Lucasí bad touch in the post-Original Trilogy world. So, in the spirit of defying Metacritic User Review logic where if something isnít a 10 it can only possibly be a 0, letís break down the pros of Indyís fourth cinematic outing.

Itís kind of like how Hugh Jackman was allowed to use practical Wolverine claws originally, before poking a few too many stuntmen in the eyes. Ford, it seems, was a gun with his whip. He also performed most of his own stunts, despite his age (66 at the time). He even encouraged screenwriter David Koepp to include more jokes relating to Indyís age.
