Oh, I believe, sister. That's why I'm down here.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Fun but little is actually amazing and it too often falls into lame sight gags (especially focussing on Shia's crotch).
Despite whipping the plot along at a fair old pace the action feels a little stilted and ideas go undeveloped (nice to see a movie acknowledge the HUAC era affected academics but it serves little point in the film).
Cate Blanchett manages to make something special of her underwritten role, with a character who is supposed to know everything but after meeting Indy knows nothing and the 'little lost girl' faces that we get from her are far more telling than anything the script delivers.
