Who Would You Save?

If you could save one person from death in one of the Indiana Jones films, who would it be and why?

Interesting Poll!

Belloq.
He was a too good counterpart to Indy to die so soon in the franchise. I think he would have been above Marion, Henry, Sallah or Abner as a shocking return in Indy 4, if that could have been possible.
I think Elsa will win this poll in the long run. She was not enough evil to "deserve" to die. But Belloq still alive would have made Indys world more exciting.

I picked TOHT because,he wasnt such a bad guy besides the fact that he caused the bar to burn down,was a nazi leader and he helped the nazi find the ark,hes my favorite villian besides Belloq.

Elsa... she wasn't bad at all. The only one on the list I think didn't deserve her fate.

So... the Kali victim did, then?

If this was a moral dilemma, he would be the 'most correct' answer. He's the only character listed whose actions (at least onscreen) shouldn't have lead to the kind of demise he got.

By the way, it's interesting that Wu Han isn't on the list. There's an 'other' option, yeah... but I'd figure he'd be the one pretty many of us would wish to save had been given the chance... and that's likely including Indy himself.

Haha...oops, forgot him...

My vote is for Elsa as well. As I mentioned in a previous thread, pretty people shouldn't die.

But yes, Finn, technically, the only one didn't really deserve to die was the Kali Victim (how do I remember him and not Wu Han? Oh well...)

Technically, the Monkey was a bad guy. At least working for the bad guys.

Kali victim was the most blameless; those with a more activist sentiment could rightfully choose Kazim though.

I'd definitely save Elsa, she was a great Indy girl. Killing off Elsa was one of the reasons that I think Last Crusade is the worst Indy film.

Yes, even the monkey... he was a good-for-nothing Nazi scumbag...

Last Crusade is the worst Indy Movie... at least until Indy 4 comes out.

You're right. The whole issue comes down to differing morals... some people think nobody deserves to die, no matter what, etc. Elsa just happens to be the standout to me as I liked her character the most... I worded my post wrong, so sorry.

What? That's ridiculous. The "true fan of something" shtick is such bull**** to me... imagine we all liked the same Indy things. There'd be some really great discussion then, huh?
