Starring Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Denholm Elliot, Alison Doody, Julian Glover, River Phoenix
Indy (Ford) returns for a third adventure, this time, essentially, joining his father (Connery) on a quest for the Holy Grail. Complicating matters, as always: the Nazis. Ford and Connery are fantastic. Even amid the huge stunts and explosions, they’re never outshined. The love interest this time around, a seductive femme fatale named Elsa is underwhelming, but the rest of the supporting cast, Denholm Elliot and John Rhys-Davies in particular, returning to their roles from the first Indiana Jones, provide plenty color. As with all of the original three Indiana Jones, this is marvelous adventure film.
