Harrison Ford is back as Indiana Jones, but should he actually be back? Sometimes, series go on far too long, and this is no exclusion. The same old attempt is lived over and over again in this movie, with some new twists and turns to keep it exciting just a little.

Harrison Ford returns to the role of the legendary hero archaeologist for this highly anticipated final installment of the iconic franchise-- a big, globe-trotting, rip-roaring cinematic adventure. Starring along with Ford are Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”), Antonio Banderas (“Pain and Glory”), John Rhys-Davies (Raiders of the Lost Ark), Shaunette Renée Wilson (“Black Panther”), Thomas Kretschmann (“Das Boot”), Toby Jones (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), Boyd Holbrook (“Logan”), Olivier Richters (“Black Widow”), Ethann Isidore (“Mortel”), and Mads Mikkelsen (“Another Round”). Directed by James Mangold (“Ford v Ferrari,” “Logan”) and written by Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth and David Koepp and James Mangold, based on characters created by George Lucas and Philip Kaufman, the film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel, with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas serving as executive producers. John Williams, who has scored each Indy adventure since the original Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, has once again composed the score.

This film does have a lot of exciting and awesome moments in it, it just lacks something new. It just seems to be the same Indiana Jones, just much older. At least back in the day, he was younger, so the adventures he went on, while unbelievable, he was still young were maybe it could happen. Now being so much older, it's just all unbelievable and far out there to think someone of this age could do any of these stunts.

Some of the effects and CGI look a little out of place at times. It just seems weird and very fake. So don't watch it too closely because of that.

If you're looking for a fun movie to watch with the family, then, of course, this is the movie for you. Just grab the popcorn, grab the soda, and just enjoy the movie for what it is. An old man going on an adventure that is not AARP approved.

INDIANA JONES AND THE DIAL OF DESTINY is in theatres June 30th, 2023.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
