Indy is back !

He is back after 19 long years. He still wears the same fedora hat and the trademark bullwhip, though this time around he doesn’t seem to put it to much use. And he has grown old. But the adventurer – archeologist Indiana Jones arrives on the big screen with style – the same old humor and not to forget a mission that leads him to exotic locales and forbidden places.  Harrison Ford is again doing what he does best.

In this adventure, the quest for the Crystal skull, he is pitted against the Russians and a double crossing old friend, but ably accompanied and supported by his old love(Karen Allen) and son (Shia LaBeouf). The movie does not try to hide his age; actually it is set even in the movie as 19 years after the previous adventure. There is a passing tribute to the Senior Jones (Sean Connery, seen only in a photograph). The film makers have retained the true flavor of the series and have worked with more physical stunts than depending on CGI which is the norm now.

The movie ends with a slight hint of who might be the next Indiana Jones in the series. If you have enjoyed the previous adventures of Indiana Jones two decades ago, you surely should not miss this one – A must watch.
