And there was I thinking that Indiana Jones had gone into quite retirement...
I'm sure Harrison Ford doesn't need the money so maybe he's just trying to prove he still has what it takes, but I suspect there were a few more body doubles this time round.
I've always been a great Harrison Ford fan, ever since the first Star Wars movie, and I have watched most of his films.
Whether by luck, choice or sheer determination and skill I can't remember any real doozers he's made (but please correct me if I'm wrong) and I particularly enjoyed these movies.
At the time they were a throwback to earlier cinematic days, reminding me of the Saturday morning matinees.
They were classic adventure and escapism movies.
Now we seem him return, with a few more wrinkles and a little less hair but as determined and adventurous as ever I'm pleased to say.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, released in 2008 was the fourth film in the Indiana Jones franchise, created by George Lucas and directed by Steven Spielberg.
Although this movie was released nineteen years after The Last Crusade, the film acknowledges the span in time by being set in 1957.
In this movie our hero, Indiana Jones, is pit against Soviet agents-led by Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett)-for a psychic alien crystal skull.
Indy is aided by his former lover Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen) and their son Mutt Williams (Shia LaBeouf). Ray Winstone, John Hurt and Jim Broadbent are also part of the supporting cast.
To keep aesthetic continuity with the previous films the crew relied on traditional stunt work instead of computer-generated stunt.
During the Cold War, Soviet agents watch Professor Henry Jones when a young man brings him a coded message from an aged, demented colleague, Henry Oxley.
Led by the brilliant Irina Spalko, the Soviets tail Jones and the young man, Mutt, to Peru. With Oxley's code, they find a legendary skull made of a single piece of quartz.
If Jones can deliver the skull to its rightful place, all may be well; but if Irina takes it to its origin, she'll gain powers that could endanger the West and so...
