I think that perhaps here SPIELBERG was trying to imitate his friend GEORGE LUCAS by rejuvenating a classic trilogy with a new instalment decades later.
Unfortunately, while the film was (for me) not as bad as I had perhaps feared, it is certainly THE PHANTOM MENACE of the INDIANA JONES franchise.
Still, I quite like CATE BLANCHETT anyway and it was good to see KAREN ALLEN reprise her Marion role once again.
Now that HARRISON is in his late sixties, however, I do not think he should even attempt trying to play the character again in future as he would look too jaded.
Perhaps, if other films are in the pipeline, SPIELBERG could do a STAR TREK and let us see some adventures of a much younger Indy?
