Okay, we should just be honest. This film was majorly cheesy. It reeked of cheesiness. But that's the fun of Indiana Jones, is it not? Hm. I think for this film there was a little bit that was just a little too over-the-top Hollywood film-making. Mutt finding a snake for Indiana to grab onto in order to be rescued from the sinking sand? Mutt flying through the air on vines with monkeys? Come on, now. But, if you're a die-hard Indy fan you can't help but get goosebumps when you hear that theme music playing. Of course not. And myself, not even being a huge Indiana Jones fan, got goosebumps and clapped excitedly when I heard the theme song. You gotta love it.
Side note: I greatly respect Shia LaBeouf as an actor, he can do no wrong in my eyes. So, my rating is biased.
