Indiana Jones and The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull Movie Review By Logan Strohl

It may not be the best of the series but Indiana Jones and The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull stills manages to be a good movie not a great one but not a bad one either. Harrison Ford stills looks great in the suit and John Williams's score is still amazing as well as Steven Spielberg himself. Not for all Indiana Jones fans but one that some can easily forgive it for its mistakes.
