Sue me I liked it. I think Last Crusade should have been the last outing, but all things considered, this was honestly pretty good. It feels a bit unnecessary, but there’s so much love and passion here, made by people who clearly understood what made the character as iconic and likable as he is. It still feels like it belongs in the franchise. I loved Indy’s arc and all of the stuff about trying to escape old age, and I’m cool with the last act. Exceptionally made and acted, flaws and all.

Coming after ol’ man Spielberg’s Crystal Skull definitely works to this film’s advantage, and my only real issue with it (besides the bloated running time) is how the action scenes fail to live up to the high standards of boy genius Spielberg’s original trilogy. Like Mangold’s Logan, it’s a closing chapter of a character who’s time has long passed, and considering how wonderfully off the rails the ending is, I’m amazed that, it managed to reach an equally poignant conclusion.

I'm gonna echo something rihrey said in their review, even though I like this movie better than they did (clearly) - bring back shorter movies. I'm sorry, this needed to be 2.5 hours like I needed one more go-round the buffet table. It definitely captures that "just watch Indy and don't worry about whether this all makes sense or not" tone of its predecessors. Mads is always incredible. In reading some reviews, apparently "Naziism is bad" is considered "woke" nowadays. Well done, dummies.

Depressing and joyless. This is as inert, ugly, incoherent, and tragically boring as any MCU-entry or Disney remake of the past decade, and with the exception of the John Williams score (bless him), this is a far closer aesthetic match to those films than any of the former Jones installments. For whatever faults one may have with Crystal Skull, it has remained in the public consciousness ever since it debuted 15 years ago. I doubt anyone will be discussing Dial of Destiny by this time next year.

Long and slow and boring and forgettable and uninspired and so hard to see what was happening on the screen for most of the movie. Lucasfilm did a copy paste of Han Solo's backstory from TFA into Indiana Jones' in this movie. Boringly unimaginative.

My first instinct is that this is better than Crystal Skull - James Mangold is a very competent craftsman and it definitely has way fewer cringe moments. At the same time, a lot of the jokes were duds and action scenes mostly on the rote side. But as an expansion of the Indy lore I didn’t mind it and the finale & ending were respectively nutty & sweet enough to appreciate. Harrison Ford does look very good / fit for his age; most 80 year olds I’ve known get winded walking to the kitchen.

Worst Indiana Jones movie by far. Much too bloated. I was really bored for much of it. I wish I had a Dial of Destiny to fast-forward some really boring parts. Most of the action sequences felt endless and lacked humour and fun. It was nearly a half hour longer than any previous Indy, and it is a slog. The ending felt like Bill & Ted were going to come on and say: "San Dimas, please welcome...Archimedes!"

This just feels empty and soulless, even compared to Crystal Skull. Ford does fine, but the film around him feels how he probably should be at his age: tired, worn out, and wanting to be done after a long time in the spotlight. James Mangold also seems like he's doing an impression of Spielberg rather than imbuing his own energy, and that makes this feel less like a proper sendoff and far more like a cash grab...although the ending is somewhat decidedly Indy in spirit.

there's maybe half an hour of genuine indiana jones in this, the first 15 minutes where cgi magic revives the young indy, and the final 15 minutes where they actually go in archeological ruins and encounter critters and such. the rest is mangold basically making an octogenarian bond movie filled to the brim with action, which neither ford at his age nor phoebe with her bratty demeanor are suitable for. thoroughly underwhelming, a disappointing finale (we hope) to a legendary trilogy

"Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny" captures the originals' nostalgic adventure. Mangold impressively fills Spielberg and Lucas's shoes, while Ford, at 80, reprises his iconic role. Waller-Bridge's Helena Shaw adds energy. The film pays homage to past entries, embracing action, humor, and adventure. Flaws: distracting visual effects, ineffective de-aging CGI, generic direction. Some supporting roles, like Mikkelsen's villain and Banderas' cameo, are underdeveloped.

Certainly an improvement over the parodic last film, it remains a mystery as to why Wokely Authoritarian H'wood has once again failed to deliver the kind of "representation" fans would love w/ a Short Round appearance. Thankfully, I did not find any of the Mandatory Box Checking annoying. I also thought the last 20 minutes was perfection: I truly did not know what would happen to Indy & found the resolution moving. The rest of the film has alot of Been There Done That, but it's a fine farewell.

The question is "Why?" Why (apart from cold hard cash) try to go back in time and restart a dead franchise? Is nostalgia really THAT important? Which, of course, is pretty much the plot of the movie, even if it has no idea how to answer that question. But as much as I start to yawn by the 11th chase sequence, as much as Mikkelsen knows how to play an evil nazi in his sleep by now, there's enough spark between Ford and Waller-Bridge to elevate this to enjoyable Sunday popcorn fodder.

Well the last one was crap and considering how much cinema has nosedived since it’s no surprise this is even worse. The whole thing just washes over you: an endless chase with constant green screen and murky hue feeling like you’re watching a 2.5 hour cutscene from a video game, and about as fun. PW-B is seriously miscast – irritating, unfunny, and sharing zero chemistry with Ford; and apart from his performance (and Mikkelsen’s) there’s very little to praise here. I may have smiled once.

An extended action sequence with a face that gives away its plastic deceit every time it moves or speaks was the wrong way to open this, but hey - I'm no Indy scholar, but this feels like a classic adventure story to me!

Experience the crushing soul-death of a Michael Bay movie but without all the leery excess that at least makes his films distinctive. The last act is so bananas that it's like the film-makers are purposefully going over the top to try and excuse everything that came before: "See! You can't criticise our movie! We KNOW it's ridiculous! It's MEANT to be ridiculous. You're the idiot for taking it so seriously!" Nah bro, I was just... hoping to be entertained...

Really surprisingly good. Action from beginning to end and excellent CGI aging. Great story line. The Wombat role probably could be cast better, but not too bad. Overall just slightly behind Raiders and Temple of Doom, but better than Last Crusade (apart from the brilliant Connery parts) and better than Crystal Skull. Really enjoyed it and did not feel the 2.5 hours run time.

Give 'em hell, Indiana Jones! It was truly emotional to watch Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones for the last time. Much better than I expected. Of course, it's not as good as the first trilogy, but Dial of Destiny has a good story, action, mystery, secrets, excitement and immersion to say farewell to Indy.

Mangold was an excellent choice to take up the mantle from Spielberg; he understands the necessary energy and fluidity for these adventures. His one weakness may be in action choreography, because those sequences are overlong and by-the-numbers, strangely devoid of many contextual wide shots, but overall I had fun. This had way more layers to Crystal Skull, from frailty to loss to time (in multiple senses), and I keep finding things to appreciate.

Overstuffed with characters, McGuffins, and digital trickery, DIAL OF DESTINY reflects the concerns of 21st-century franchise filmmaking more than it harks back to pulp serials or B-movies in the Indy tradition. Yet there is still some of the old magic left in Ford's alternately grizzled and giddy performance. And Phoebe Waller-Bridge is the perfect complement to the series' lighthearted side, reminding us that we've always had the best time when we don't take Dr. Jones too seriously.

the opening can't get out of uncanny valley and the setpiece isn't that spectacular anyway, but what followed wasn't half bad for a while. sure, waller-bridge is (written to be) a nuisance. they strap ford onto all kinds of gimmicks to give him physicality, and it looks just weird when he rides a horse like a pro to wobble away afterwards. but mangold is a capable guy, and the second act worked better than it had any right to. and then there's the ending...let's just say it's absolute dogshit.

On first watch I was, above all, relieved that this didn't suck. In fact, it is quite enjoyable.

Plenty of plot issues to pick at (how did Voller survive that hit to the head on the train? How did he show up at the cave so quickly?), and not all the humour or character work works (crotchety old Indy has his moments of poignant reflection and also other moments: “Whatever I did, I apologize.” Yikes), but the spirit of adventure is as strong as ever, with compelling action set pieces galore. Indy’s glory days had come and gone, yes, but as Sallah hinted that they might, they came back again.

I preferred Crystal Skull. Despite a promising start (excusing shoddy CGI & rushed pacing), Dial of Destiny seems to be driven less by adventure and more by urgency. Ford does an admirable job reprising his iconic role, while Waller-Bridge is the over-used focal point. I liked Rhys-Davies' reappearance. Mikkelsen was good. Holbrook's Klaber was detestable. Isidore's Teddy was a pale imitation of Short Round. Overall, too much build-up & nostalgia but not enough payoff, just like Williams' score.

I expected this to be bad, positively surprised that it was alright. Dragged a lot around the middle, had some poor writing, a sociopathic main character, but despite those issues the movie does a good job highlighting Indy's age and (hopefully) sunsetting the character. Congratulations to Indy on saving Hitler's life.

Affectionate, well-crafted ode to the Jones spirit finds Ford in much finer fettle than the previous entry, and gives Mangold an opportunity to put his own, more intense stamp on the franchise, while still feeling at one with the Spielberg entries. A damn fine achievement in its own right – if some of the emotional beats towards the finale aren’t as organically established as they could be, Ford’s haunting (and moving) performance does a more than adequate patch job. Fare thee well, Dr Jones!

Wanted so much to like this, but it's just too bad it can't quite go beyond the expected -- a bloated adventure with a few shining moments and a bunch of boring ones, specially in the second half. Ford and Waller-Bridge have a great chemistry, though, which helps a lot in such a clunky, mostly generic and largely uninspired franchise return. As a friend has noticed, this would've been much if directed by the duo that made Dungeons & Dragons.

Some moments are good, but the action doesn't have the clarity if previous installments and all the CGI in the world can't make Ford move like a younger man. There's some nice character moments of an aging Indy being passed by, but the reverence and wonder is largely lacking. Final act was cool

Ultimately, I think it is overall slightly better than Crystal Skull, but still missing something that could have pushed it closer to the originals. Something about Spielberg's style was not there of course, although I do think Mangold did a good job coming close, but I also feel like Indy spends too much time in modern environments and not enough in ancient places. While the movie itself is fun, it also feels like Indy himself is rarely having a fun time. Phoebe was decent, but not the best.

Killer first half with some great action and sense of adventure but after Morocco it goes pretty downhill until the end. Ford and Mikkelsen are great - but they could do this shit in they sleep - while Fleabag oscillates between effective and irritating. I would say despite its issues it captures the spirit of the series well and isn’t a black mark on it or anything, and it’s certainly a damn sight better than the Uncharted movie.

Ford is there and looks tired. Mikkelsen is there and does some acting. Waller-Bridge is there and does a bit more if it. She even seems to have some fun at some points. There's an unnecessary child-character of course and Antonio Banderas shows up. There's lots of bad CGI and then more of it. There's lazy use of the iconography of the franchise and lazily deployed references to the late 60s. But the finale is so ridiculous, it provides a little fun at least.

An entertaining enough diversion, certainly better than the last effort, but obviously pales in comparison to the original trilogy. It gets especially goofy toward the end and has some of the flaws this kind of movie tends to with it feeling like they are shoehorning in old characters just so viewers say "it's them!" rather than for any actual reason. I would watch a movie about cranky, bitter old professor Indiana Jones trying to avoid faculty functions. Easily forgettable.

Not as good as the classic first and third films but better than the others, it's a true Indiana Jones movie fittingly directed by James Mangold, featuring a lot of exciting action and benefiting from the decision to address Indy's age and keep his actions in a relatively believable frame. On the downside, the plot is a bit lazy (the villains constantly appearing out of nowhere, the time travel, the wanted-for-murder subplot), the visuals feel too polished and the action is sometimes darkly lit.

Suffers from a few issues. It's a little too long and it hurts the pacing. The action was never going to be as inspired as previous Indy movies because Ford is just old, but it was decent. And I'm not a massive Indy fan so maybe I miss some of the nods and winks since I don't have as much investment in this property as many do. But hey, the final bit is really good and I'm glad Indy got a happy ending. Mangold made an entertaining but unmemorable flick.

When I think about the original trilogy, two words come to mind: lighthearted fun. This felt like the opposite. The last 15 minutes non withstanding, this was a joyless, lengthy, fake looking, repetitive macguffin chase accompanied by an irritating brat of a sidekick and a predictable villain. Mangold replacing Spielberg seemed like a good choice because of the somewhat thematically comparable Logan, but they forgot that Indiana Jones movies are supposed to be enjoyable, pleasant comedies.

I was skeptical as the film started with de-aged Indy, digital look and recycling of familiar elements, but it started to win me over as they took some risks with the 60's timeline by making Indy a bitter old man. Then the real adventure began and I was enjoying it a lot more than the previous film, although it could have used some heavy editing. Cast was fine with Mikkelsen as the standout. But then we got to the finale, and I'm still not sure if it totally ruins the film, but it comes close.

As a nostalgic ode to one of the most iconic film franchises of all time, there are moments that definitely work. However, like 2008's entry, the film struggles to put Indiana Jones in fresh adventures that don't feel CGI-heavy and contrived. There was a raw spirit of adventure that made the original three films so fun, whereas this one often feels like it's going through the motions. Fun to see familiar faces back, but I never felt attached to the movie like I did the previous ones.

I went into this without reading up on it, and just hoping that it would be better than the last one. So it cleared that low bar, hit most of the franchise tropes, Ford made the character work, and so did Waller-Bridge. I totally did not expect the over-the-top finale, and so I was rather delighted by it. But ultimately, the artifice of the whole project felt like a shroud over the whole proceedings. So, I guess not a bad way for them to sign off.

Not as bad as I expected it to be, but not really too good, either. I really liked all the bits of finding clues and doing actual tomb raiding. But otherwise, it was just way too all over the place and many of the important plot points made no sense. I see how much it tried to capture the old magic, but it's just not there. Most of the action bits - like the chase scene in the middle - are too muddled and last for way too long to hold one's interest.

Fun Indy but feels really unnecessary. It took too much for me to believe Ford's character is still that fit after at least a decade's down slide. I didn't care for yet another Mary Sue in the franchise. Ultimately, the moon parade and its promise of a new American future stood in harsh contrast with fighting the same old fight against Nazis, and maybe it's better commentary than anything I can write about how we need new heroes rather than letting Ford enjoy his retirement. Fav scene: siege.

I mean. Naw. This really didn't need to get made. Its a shadow of the original trilogy's charm, action and presence. No amount of goofball CGI can fix that. I really didn't care about anything. It didn't even really register as Indiana Jones. Just some old guy being old and crotchety. Its not offensively bad or anything. Its just there. Reminding you of better movies.

Pretty lifeless stuff. Way too much CGI face.

I don’t quite know to calculate the godawful tag at the end into it all and there’s at least one action scene too many. Better than Crystal Skull, at least.

Didn't like the first third, but gets better once they start tomb raiding. Better than Crystal Skulls but equally unnecessary. What was the point of setting up the god daughters greed if it had no bearing on anything in the third act?

I wanted to like this, and the nostalgic callbacks to the original 42 years ago were fun. But the characters of Helena and Teddy just ruin it; they're the equivalent of Jar Jar Binks. It's unfathomable why PWB and Ethann Isadore were cast. See this if you want to "complete your collection" of having seen all the Indiana Jones films, but don't go in with high hopes.

Some entertaining parts, but the feel is off for me, and the CGI looks terrible and not in the spirit of Indy. The final hour is underwhelming.

Probably too reliant on chase scenes and the concept of "Remember this? And this? And this?", but it's still Indiana Jones. 20/DEC/2023

Works much better than 'Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' and is a surprisingly well done entry in the'Indiana Jones' franchise overall. The chemistry between Ford and Waller-Bridge carries the movie and the set pieces are fun all around.

With a terrible trailer, YouTube "buzz", and worst, the second half of "Crystal Skull," I went into this with baited disgust. And yet, dare I say it? I liked it! Helena wasn't annoying or woke, Mads had a fun evil plan, and Indy was age-appropriate (for an adventure hero). Better yet, the tone of the movie was Indiana-accurate the entire time. Yes, some of the chases were long-winded and there were one too many 70-year old punches. Also, I loved the entire de-aged Indy opening. Surprising!

Its passable, but it never really answers the question of why we need a new Indiana Jones move in 2023.

Considering everything that's happened to Indy up to now, I feel he might be a tiny bit more credulous of all this ancient artefact heebee jeebeeness. He's seen the actual power of God! Twice! A bit of time travel nonsense should not faze him! There are several very odd character choices, but overall it is, if you turn your brain off, a fun adventure. Now for the love of God let Harrison Ford retire. (Bonus point for killing Shia Leboeuf off-screen for two lines of pathos).

Surprisingly good, much better than Crystal Skull at least. Hated the cinematography and overuse of CGI though.
