    Synopsis


    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
    Everyone's favorite archeologist adventurer dusts off his hat and trusty whip for yet another globetrotting trek as Indiana Jones returns to the big screen nearly 20 years after racing for the Holy Grail alongside his father in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). Harrison Ford reprises his role as the iconic, snake-loathing screen hero in a sequel that also finds Karen Allen returning to the series for the first time since 1981's Raiders of the Lost Ark. Ray Winstone, John Hurt, Jim Broadbent, and Shia LaBeouf round out a cast that also features Cate Blanchett in the role of villainous Russian operative Agent Irina Spalko. Steven Spielberg calls the shots on a script penned by David Koepp (and adapted from the screen story by executive producer George Lucas). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
    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. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Raiders of the Lost Ark
    Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is no ordinary archeologist. When we first see him, he is somewhere in the Peruvian jungle in 1936, running a booby-trapped gauntlet (complete with an over-sized rolling boulder) to fetch a solid-gold idol. He loses this artifact to his chief rival, a French archeologist named Belloq (Paul Freeman), who then prepares to kill our hero. In the first of many serial-like escapes, Indy eludes Belloq by hopping into a convenient plane. So, then: is Indiana Jones afraid of anything? Yes, snakes. The next time we see Jones, he's a soft-spoken, bespectacled professor. He is then summoned from his ivy-covered environs by Marcus Brody (Denholm Elliott) to find the long-lost Ark of the Covenant. The Nazis, it seems, are already searching for the Ark, which the mystical-minded Hitler hopes to use to make his stormtroopers invincible. But to find the Ark, Indy must first secure a medallion kept under the protection of Indy's old friend Abner Ravenwood, whose daughter, Marion (Karen Allen), evidently has a "history" with Jones. Whatever their personal differences, Indy and Marion become partners in one action-packed adventure after another, ranging from wandering the snake pits of the Well of Souls to surviving the pyrotechnic unearthing of the sacred Ark. A joint project of Hollywood prodigies George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, with a script co-written by Lawrence Kasdan and Philip Kaufman, among others, Raiders of the Lost Ark is not so much a movie as a 115-minute thrill ride. Costing 22 million dollars (nearly three times the original estimate), Raiders of the Lost Ark reaped 200 million dollars during its first run. It was followed by Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1985) and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), as well as a short-lived TV-series "prequel." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
    The third installment in the widely beloved Spielberg/Lucas Indiana Jones saga begins with an introduction to a younger Indy (played by the late River Phoenix), who, through a fast-paced prologue, gives the audience insight into the roots of his taste for adventure, fear of snakes, and dogged determination to take historical artifacts out of the hands of bad guys and into the museums in which they belong. A grown-up Indy (Harrison Ford) reveals himself shortly afterward in a familiar classroom scene, teaching archeology to a disproportionate number of starry-eyed female college students in 1938. Once again, however, Mr. Jones is drawn away from his day job after an art collector (Julian Glover) approaches him with a proposition to find the much sought after Holy Grail. Circumstances reveal that there was another avid archeologist in search of the famed cup -- Indiana Jones' father, Dr. Henry Jones (Sean Connery) -- who had recently disappeared during his efforts. The junior and senior members of the Jones family find themselves in a series of tough situations in locales ranging from Venice to the most treacherous spots in the Middle East. Complicating the situation further is the presence of Elsa (Alison Doody), a beautiful and intelligent woman with one fatal flaw: she's an undercover Nazi agent. The search for the grail is a dangerous quest, and its discovery may prove fatal to those who seek it for personal gain. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade earned a then record-breaking $50 million in its first week of release. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

      Too expensive all 4 films & extras

      I was first in the door opening day for all three of the original films in my home town. Theater is NOW a used car lot. So, Indy 4 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was released in theaters May 2008. Just before this happened a smaller box set with the first three films came out. George just loves to release OVER, OVER, OVER AND OVER AGAIN these films and the Star Wars films in video formats. How many times did he release the first three films or the original Star Wars trilogy on VHS & laser disc? Too many times. This set in my opinion was way to expensive, why? Simple, 5 months earlier the first three films were released in that box set to be RELEASED AGAIN in this larger set. Plus there are a lot of extras, some of course we have seen before. More ads, Lego's again. Thanks George. Just what I want to see ads. The back of the DVD carrying case just pushed the extras, etc on Crystal . George, this is no doubt the least favorite of the four films, how about equally push all the films? If you are an Indy fan you will enjoy the set, I did BUT just keep in mind George over releasing the films on every video format. The 2004 set for the first three films will cover those. You can get that and get the multiple disc of Crystal and basically have the same set as this is. Just keep in mind when buying this George re-releasing the films over and over and over and over so you will NOT see a lot of stuff you have not already seen if you are a true Indy fan.

      Despite the less than sublime success of the fourth installment, the first three of the series are definitely eligible for any action fan's DVD library. It's only been a month since I've bought it, and I've already watched the first three at least twice. If you're an Indy fan, this is one product that you should not be without.

      This DVD set is a pretty good buy for the money. The video transfer is decent, not great though. I definitely have to check out the Blu-ray set because obviously it should be much better. Nonetheless this is still a pretty good set as long as you don't mind the Crystal skull movie.

      Why is this fantastic movie franchise not on HiDef

      scorsesefan2010

      Great movie one of my favorite movie franchises of all time, it is just so dang stupid that this amazing action franchise is not on Blu ray. That is very upsetting. My advice is to just wait until it comes out on blu ray but it is not said that it will ever come out on blu ray.

      If you are a fan of Indiana Jones this is a box set that you must own. Everything you could want is all there. It is nice to have all of the movies individually packaged, but condensed in a single spot.

      Tried to get for Christmas, but out of stock. When it was available shipping was very slow and the collection had been in stores for over a week. Check stores first. Good action for anyone, especially for the family.
