Probably everyone knows what to expect from the latest Indiana Jones movie: thrills and chills leavened with cheerful good humor; lots of fun with no concern about passing the refrigerator test.
Actually this sort of thing is much harder to pull off than it looks–you have to keep the audience so enchanted while they are watching that they won’t ask questions. Get things a little bit wrong and it will become annoying or tedious. No one does this kind of thing better than Steven Spielberg.
This one is reminiscent of the first movie in the series: Raiders of the Lost Arc (1981), but it’s set in 1957, which I think is about 17 years later in movie time. Instead of Nazis for villains it has evil KGB agents. Once again there’s a quest for an implausible treasure. Its witty and thrilling and fun, but mostly forgettable.
