During the Cold War, Soviet agents watch Professor Henry Jones when a young man brings him a coded message from an aged, demented colleague, Henry Oxley. Led by the brilliant Irina Spalko, the Soviets tail Jones and the young man, Mutt, to Peru. With Oxley's code, they find a legendary skull made of a single piece of quartz. If Jones can deliver the skull to its rightful place, all may be well; but if Irina takes it to its origin, she'll gain powers that could endanger the West. Aging professor and young buck join forces with a woman from Jones's past to face the dangers of the jungle, Russia, and the supernatural. Harrison Ford has starred in the franchise since its inception and continues to do so in 2008’s “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” At the age of 67 the seasoned actor manages to act with the same vigor that he did at 40, performing stunts and acrobatics that many would assume was the work of younger professional stuntmen. Like with each edition before it Hollywood moguls George Lucas and Steven Spielberg masterminded “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” Taking on such an endeavor is no small feat: audience expectations are incredibly high and viewers will inevitably compare the film to the three classics preceding it. John Williams is onboard once again as the film’s composer, bringing with him the same brilliance exhibited in his long line of film compositions, including “Schindler's List” (1993), “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (1982), “Jurassic Park” (1993), and “Jaws” (1975.) This movie is rated PG-13 for adventure violence and scary images.
