INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL

Fans have been waiting for this movie for almost 20 years, and they won’t be disappointed. Harrison Ford’s swashbuckling archaeologist is still the same everyman hero we loved in the 80s, just a few years older. It’s Cold War 1957 and Dr Jones is on the trail of a crystal skull stolen from Peru’s mythical city of gold. Legend has it that he who returns the skull will be granted ultimate power. With icy KGB scientist Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett) chasing him, it’s up to Indy and his sidekick Mutt to save the day. Spielberg and Lucas stay true to the formula. It’s a glorified B-Movie with everything you’d expect: thrilling chases, exotic locations, nasty villains, slapstick action and plenty of laughs. Don’t miss it! (Lachlan Jobbins)
