Overview

The second of the George Lucas/Steven Spielberg Indiana Jones epics is set a year or so before the events in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1984). After a brief brouhaha involving a precious vial and a wild ride down a raging Himalyan river, Indy (Harrison Ford) gets down to the problem at hand: retrieving a precious gem and several kidnapped young boys on behalf of a remote East Indian village. His companions this time around include a dimbulbed, easily frightened nightclub chanteuse (Kate Capshaw), and a feisty 12-year-old kid named Short Round (Quan Ke Huy). Throughout, the plot takes second place to the thrills, which include a harrowing rollercoaster ride in an abandoned mineshaft and Indy's rescue of the heroine from a ritual sacrifice. There are also a couple of cute references to Raiders of the Lost Ark, notably a funny variation of Indy's shooting of the Sherpa warrior.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Aside from James Bond and Luke Skywalker, no action hero of the last 50 years has so captivated moviegoers as the intrepid Indiana Jones, whip-cracking adventurer nonpareil. The Indy triumvirate -- Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) -- reflects the felicitous partnership of Hollywood heavyweights Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Harrison Ford. Inspired by cliffhanger movie serials of the '30s and '40s, producer Lucas (who actually created Indy) and director Spielberg introduced their archeologist-cum-soldier of fortune in Raiders, pitting him against Nazis hoping to locate and seize the Biblical Ark of the Covenant -- an artifact of immeasurable value and the reputed source of unlimited power. The initial Indiana Jones film is clearly the best, with superbly staged action sequences occurring at regular intervals to simulate the experience of watching a multi-episode serial in one thrill-crammed sitting. The first sequel, Temple of Doom, not only reflected the influence of cliffhangers but also seemed to have been drawn in part from such classic films as Gunga Din. This time around the villains were East Indian cultists practicing the occult arts and trying to sacrifice Indy's reluctant companion, a voluptuous blonde singer played by Kate Capshaw (later Mrs. Spielberg). Last Crusade harked back to Raiders, in that the bad guys were, once again, Nazis looking for a priceless religious artifact, this time the Holy Grail. Lest potential audiences be dissuaded by the similarity of plot, Lucas and Spielberg added a new character to the mix: Indy's archeologist father, portrayed by Sean Connery. The Indiana Jones films hold up splendidly today because they are unpretentious entertainments, made with all the technical virtuosity of latter-day movies but infused with the spirit of earlier Hollywood films that catered to Depression-weary and World War II audiences hungry for escapist fare. Moreover, the Jones trilogy gently pokes fun, without condescension, at the old serials and swashbucklers. The wildly implausible situations and hairbreadth escapes aren't corny, over-the-top sequences grafted onto movies with contemporary sensibilities; they're organic to the films. For sheer, unadulterated fun these movies are impossible to beat, and they promise countless hours of entertainment for those who buy this box set.

Growing up, these were among some of my favorite movies to watch! My siblings and I watched them quite a bit, along with Star Wars and some other great ones from back in the day. My parents were big fans of these movies as well, and would watch them with us a lot. If there is someone out there who has never seen these before...what the heck? Get on it! These are classic gems not to be passed up! Will always have a special place in my heart for these movies!

tell me that you aren't tired of indiana jones ever since you saw it with your family years ago. raiders of the lost ark starts with indy and one of my fave heroines named marion having to find an equally creepy looking chest that'll unleash evil and seriously that ending was awesome with the ghosts and all. temple of doom is one that i find a little hard to watch but love short round and willie is a little annoying. indy, willie and short round are to go in search of sacred stones that was stolen from a village. along the way they find the stones but its under a volcano with a crazy priest sacrifice kind of guy and steals children so they'll become slave workers or something. that bridge scene was epic. last crusade i never got to see much of than the first two. in that one, indy with his father "sean connery" are in search of the holy grail and are chased by the bad guys yet again. and of course the next one called kingdom of the crystal skull where indy returns with marion and a new cast that includes shia from disturbia. here i guess they have to find an artifact that's a skull and can't wait to see it. so yeah that's pretty much of how its been in the series so far. glad that harrison is back with the trademark hat and whip and the theme song including the fear of snakes.

I have not seen the Indiana Jones in a while, but when I purchased this I was glued to my chair watching all 3 back to back. I watched the extras thrown in and then re watched my favorite parts of each film. Honestly, if you are a fan you have to purchase this. Also, I watched the new Indiana Jones and it just as good as the others might even be better. Highly recommended!

A new release of the Indiana Jones Trilogy, just in time for the release of the long awaited 4th installment. Contrary to many though, the movies have been previously released on DVD before, this is a an updated newer version, more bonus footage, and re-mastering. What started with Raiders of the Lost Ark has quickly become a fan phenomena. In fact most of todays archeologists will probably tell you they owe a lot to ol' Indy for making them interested in their fields. These movies are great and a this collection is a must have for fans and fans alike. If you've never seen the original three, it's well worth it. If you are looking forward to May 22, it's worth watching them again, and again. Indy makes Archeology fun!

If you love action and adventure with a story that will keep you interested and engaged, Indiana Jones (any of the episodes) will be a great set of movies to view. It's the type of movies you will watch over and over again. I can never get enough of Indie or Harrison playing the role. The latest edition adds Shai LeBouf and he is good too.
