And the three challenges at the end felt so tame compared to the non-stop action at the end of TOD.

It's grown on me, though, and I appreciate its moments of poignancy now in a way that I guess I wasn't capable of as a kid.

I do find it to the most emotional and powerful of the series. The father/son aspect adds an urgency and dramatic pull that's unique to the franchise. The other three have their moments but nothing quite as powerful as Henry's gentle "Indiana...let it go" near the end.
