The Last Crusade is action/adventure at its best

"Raiders of the Lost Ark was a spectacular ride full of eye-popping stunts and breathtaking action sequences. The second Indiana Jones film, The Temple of Doom, was a disappointment. It was a decent movie, not bad by any means whatsoever, but it couldn't hold a candle to its predecessor. It seemed the Indiana Jones chronicles were only going to go downhill from there. Boy, was I wrong. I watched The Last Crusade in theaters back in 1989 and it was every bit as fun and enjoyable as Raiders of the Lost Ark, even an improvement in some ways. There's considerably more character development in this film and the special effects have gotten better with enhanced technology. The storyline reverts back to the formula that made Indiana Jones so great. This time, Jones (Harrison Ford) has discovered that his father, Henry (Sean Connery), has disappeared on an expedition for the Holy Grail. Indiana takes his place and, with the help of Marcus Brody (Denholm Elliot), Sallah (John Rhys-Davies), searches for his father and the Holy Grail and must battle Nazis on the same quest.The Last Crusade is action galore as its a non-stop and fun thrill ride. The stunts and action scenes are amazing, as usual. The performances are as good as ever. Harrison Ford IS Indiana Jones and Denholm Elliot and John Rhys-Davies do good jobs with their role. The real standout in this film, though, is Sean Connery as Jones' father.The Last Crusade is an excellent crowd pleaser, so watch it with an audience. To sum it up, this and Raiders of the Lost Ark are the best action films of all time."
Indiana is back, and this time he's brought his dad along!

""Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" is what I think the best of the three Indiana Jones movie. And one of the most important reasons for this conclusion is not just that it has Harrison Ford doing absolutely great, it has legendary actor Sean Connery as Indy's dad.Harrison Ford is Dr. Henry 'Indiana' Jones, Jr. When he is asked by Walter Donovan (Julian Glover) to help go in search of the mystical Holy Grail since one of his main archaeologist has disappeared, he refuses. But when Indy is told that the missing man is his father, Professor Henry Jones, Sr., (whom he has rarely spoken to in 20 years), Indy, along with the help of friend Marcus Brody (Denholm Elliott) and Dr. Elsa Schneider (Alison Doody), try to rescue his father from... who? Can it be the mysterious men who are trying to stop him from finding the Holy Grail? Or is there more to just finding his father and the Holy Grail than meets the eye? Indiana discovers that you can't trust anybody when dealing with power seeking men who want to use the cup of Jesus for evil.The best Indiana Jones movie AND action/adventure movie!! And the script and plot is just perfect, with plenty of lines which are just so funny! The first part where they have 'young Indiana Jones' played by River Phoenix was lots of fun, too. I like it where the explained some things like how Indy got his famous hat. "Everyone's lost but me..."My favorite parts are when Indy 'rescues' his dad but instead has to escape from the bad guys when he is caught himself and whenever Indy and Dr. Jones are arguing. One thing though is that I didn't think much of Alison Doody as Elsa. Yeah, she was real greedy and everything but I still like Karen Allen as Marion Ravenwood in the first Indiana Jones movie, "Raiders of the Lost Ark". And of course John Williams score is just terrific. I can probably hum the whole Indiana Jones theme song! For those of you who haven't seen this movie, well, I'm telling you to put it on you 'must see' list!"
Another fine Indiana Jones film!

"The third installment of the Indiana Jones series,Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,is another fantastic adventure.(it's not as good as Raiders of the Lost Ark,but at least as good,if not better than Temple of Doom.)The film starts out in 1912 in Utah,and shows Indy as a teenager,played by River Phoenix.Then it shifts to 1938 and Indy winds up battling Nazis again,this time teaming up with his father Henry Jones(played wonderfully by THE James Bond,Sean Connery)to find the Holy Grail.Of course Harrison Ford is great as Indy,and the rest of the cast is very good,too,including Alison Doody as Dr.Elsa Schneider,John Rhys Davies as Sallah,Denholm Elliot as Marcus Brody,and Julian Glover as Donovan.There's loads of action,and the musical score by John Williams is great.Overall,it's a great movie and a fine collaboration of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas."
A wild ride keeping up with the Joneses

"I really enjoyed this movie (it is my favorite) because of all of the adventure, plus Indy gets to take his dad on all of these adventures. It's funny to see how Henry reacts to the idea of people trying to kill them, and how Indiana just explains how that is always happening to him. I like the references to the Bible and the Holy Grail, because it is really cool to go on a quest for something mythical. It also has a great score and wonderful reference to WWII and the evil goings-on in Germany at the time. All in all, a great movie with a great message: don't name your kid after your dog."
