Spielberg Eyes Bible Epic

Spielberg Eyes Bible Epic, INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE (dir. Steven Spielberg, 1989) As happens with many threequels, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade takes itself less seriously than its predecessors.

But we hadn’t quite entered Kingdom of the Crystal Skull territory back in 1989, and the adventures of Harrison Ford’s fighting archaeologist still captured the fervor and spontaneity that made the character so captivating in the first place.

With a ridiculously condensed origin story starring River Phoenix as young Indie, and a classic third act that found Dr. Jones outwitting ancient Biblical deathtraps to retrieve the Holy Grail, it’s almost surprising that the real selling point of the film was the witty back-and-forth between Ford and Sean Connery, playing against type as Indiana Jones’s stuffed shirt of a father. An action classic.
