Indiana Jones & The Dial of Destiny
That archeologist is back for a new adventure, the icon that is Indiana Jones follows what seems like the unbreakable formula of Indiana films past, now designed to stir up nostalgia and the comforting feeling of your young adventures to the cinemas seeing your hero Indiana Jones on the big screen. Harrison Ford this time being joined by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, Mads Mikkelsen and for another ride John Rhys-Davies, The Dial of Destiny is just as action packed as films from past, with the same ol’ Indiana movie feel as accompanied by same ol’ Indiana music as provided by legendary composer John Williams.
As the film progresses you start to realise that, while the audiences of Indiana fans are in mind, this film is a new light for the newer generations or those who have never known the excitement of Indiana Jones before. This said, the lines of the mystical, the scientific and the religious are blurred if only to keep up with the mammoth blockbusters of those telling the stories of the supernatural, the unnatural and the eerie.
A great trip down memory lane, coupled with elements of a new story in line with some of the same themes seen in new films. This is a fun film to introduce the legend of Indiana Jones to a newer generation, for many others is a viewing signaling a new chapter in the Indiana Jones volume, all in all this is a great weekend type of cinema trip and one I thoroughly enjoyed.
