A stunning sequel to one of the most perfect adventure films in cinema history, created, like the first film, by the great storyteller and eternal child Steven Spielberg. Fairy tale is the defining word when trying to understand the image of Indiana Jones. And there is no point in arguing that a frail hero would never have defeated a Hindu thug, that a Chinese boy could not kick the guards with his feet, and that drought-complaining rednecks fished Indiana Jones out of a completely full-flowing river just a stone’s throw from their dried-up village. …
This is just a fairy tale – the same one, from boyish fantasies, where there are no boundaries to adventure, from a childhood dream, where a child can easily control his heroes and make them do the most reckless things, while be sure to keep alive … this is a fairy tale where universal evil will be defeated by a courageous and unshaven hero who cheerfully makes his way over the corpses of enemies to the cherished goal …
Steven Spielberg knows how to captivate – there are a lot of absurdities in his picture, but you don’t notice it. This is a sequel, but you don’t notice this either, perhaps it even surpassed the original. This tale is characterized by the dynamics of a cool action movie, the special effects of a comic blockbuster, the interweaving of reality and fiction, legends and reality. Spielberg’s film is fascinating, it is a delightful show full of mystical secrets and mysteries, it looks like an entertaining and entertaining quest where the hero gets from error to error, overcoming obstacles to his goal, of course, noble and pure.
Indiana Jones is an ideal childhood hero, the whole trilogy is a hymn to childhood, youth, their symbol. Although the film will also be watched with pleasure by adults.
The budget of the second film has increased compared to the first by only 10 million, but this is very noticeable – the film has become simply incredibly spectacular: wild forests, underground caves and maharajah palaces, abandoned villages and deep mines with tumbling trolleys, suspension bridges – all the attributes of an adventure film look and now bewitching! There are constant brawls in the film, dangerous stunts, beautiful costumes, tingling moments, a lot of juicy humor and, of course, the obligatory fabulous happy ending.
The acting and the script, of course, are not at a great height, but the requirements for them are also small. The main thing is to be fun, beautiful and correct. Harrson Ford is very charming and heroic, in his eyes you can see the childish enthusiasm, which Spielberg probably sought. He plays with light irony towards his hero, not seriously. He will always have the obligatory pretty girl and the obligatory charismatic villain. But I never saw Dan Aykroyd in the film. I love it very much, and I notice it even in small episodes, but here, after so many views, I never saw it …
Do not look for philosophical depths in this film. All that is required of you here is imagination and a passion for adventure. For people with both, this film is simply flawless! A masterpiece of the genre!
