Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
For about half the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull‘s runtime I was left wondering ” Why DID I dislike this so much first time around”. After all, whilst it’s not perfect, Ford is giving it his all and the film has some fun moments (*the fridge aside obviously). And then the monkeys/ants/aliens bits arrived and I went”Ah THAT’S why”. Look Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is not terrible it’s just a very below par Spielberg film (probably one of his weakest since The Lost World) with some of his flattest direction ever. And if Spielberg is bored and doesn’t care why should we?
Best Bit: Urm… I guess the return of Marion.
