Exhilirating. Bizarre. Scary.
Indy (Ford) returns, though set before the events of the first one, here, stumbling upon a small village in India losing its children to a Thuggee cult. He investigates with the help of Short Round, his young Chinese sidekick, and the diva-esque Willie Scott (Capshaw), leading him to a remote temple full of bizarre rituals and horrors in every corner. My favorite popcorn flick. I adore this movie and every odd choice. No one is better than Spielberg at layering the suspense, or raising the stakes mid-action scene. Superior to the original, thanks to Short Round and the compelling, exotic location. Countless memorable moments including the killer opening.
