INDIANA JONES AND THE DIAL OF DESTINY - Ben Sorensen's 60 Second Reviews


Indiana Jones and the dial of destiny... will it be more like the awesomeness of Raiders or more like the comparative mediocrity of the Crystal Skull...

This is a race against time in this 2 hour 22 minute feature as Indiana Jones attempts to retrieve the dial of destiny, an artifact that can change the course of history.... Getting on in years and struggling to fit into a world that's outgrown him, Indi has garnered assistance from his goddaughter for this adventure.

There's plenty of stunts, including whip cracking, new characters, NASA is involved, as are the Nazis and it's got loads of familiarity to keep fans of the franchise feeling great.

But the question we are all asking is, did it live upto the hype? I'd say think of it as a homage to the Crystal Skull rather than an apology for it.

It's Indiana Jones. Of course, we will all watch it no matter what!


Harrison Ford returns as the legendary hero archaeologist in the highly anticipated fifth installment of the iconic “Indiana Jones” franchise, which is directed by James Mangold (“Ford v Ferrari,” “Logan”). Starring along with Ford are Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”), Antonio Banderas (“Pain and Glory”), John Rhys-Davies (“Raiders of the Lost Ark”), Shaunette Renee Wilson (“Black Panther”), Thomas Kretschmann (“Das Boot”), Toby Jones (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”), Boyd Holbrook (“Logan”), Oliver Richters (“Black Widow”), Ethann Isidore (“Mortel”) and Mads Mikkelsen (“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore”). Directed by James Mangold, the film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel, with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas serving as executive producers. John Williams, who has scored each Indy adventure since the original "Raiders of the Lost Ark" in 1981, is once again composing the score.
