Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Crystal Skull isn't bad -- there are a few dazzling sequences, and a couple of good performances -- but the unprecedented blend of comedy and action that made the movies so much more fun than any other adventure series is mostly gone."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"Crystal Skull is a fun ride, but if we have to wait 19 years for the next one, that's OK by me."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Senior citizens' special of the year, a popcorn movie made from, uh, mature corn."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Although it carries a certain level of slickness to it, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull shows that although the times have changed - both in the film and for the viewing audience - Indiana Jones hasn't. And that's a problem."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"There's nothing but entertainment value here."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"A perfectly great bout of escapism with Indiana Jones at his best..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"If anyone was worried that Ford was just too old to put the hat back on, Crystal Skull should lay that to rest. There's still life in the old franchise yet."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"Ford se jo%u0161 uvijek mo%u017Ee nazivati akcijskom zvijezdom"
‑ Dragan Antulov,
"...playful and entertaining, even if it looks, deliberately, as though we've seen it all before. (Blu-ray edition)"
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The action is the movie's raison d'Ítre, of course, but the setups are wittier than the payoffs."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Want some real perspective? Ask me in ten years: hindsight has a nasty habit of being right. But for right now, on May 22, 2008? Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull is a movie worth getting excited for."
‑ Ali Gray,
"I'll answer the most important question first. Yes, there is a Wilhelm scream in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."
‑ Jordan Hoffman, UGO
"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull -- the fourth movie about Henry Jones, Jr. -- is as comfortable as an old shoe. Or an old hat. Actually it is old hat. It's comfortable, but it's also worn and slack."
‑ Tony Macklin, Fayetteville Free Weekly
"The thing I loved most about this movie is just how ludicrous the whole thing is."
‑ Marc Fennell, ABC News (Australia)
