Terribly Wrong Rating

Opposite of Raiders. The first installment is rated “PG”, when it really should be PG13. It’s the exact opposite for Crusade, rated PG13 and should be PG. What was wrong with Hollywood back in the 80s?

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade Movie Review By Logan Strohl

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade is a fun addition to the Indiana Jones film series as well as the first film in the series to receive a PG-13 rating because of two films that cause it to happen Gremlins and the last Indiana Jones movie. Great action and adventure. As they say third time is the charm and they pull it out making it the second best Indiana Jones film of all time. Plus darkness is more toned down then the last film. It also stars Sean Connery in his first Indiana Jones movie as well as the longest film in the series at 126 minutes. It also makes a good Father's Day movie to watch with your dad. Some scary scenes but nothing older and younger fans can't handle.
