The story is about after escaping from Hong Kong, Indiana Jones, a night-club singer and his 12-year old companion land in India where whey must help a village regain it's mysterous stones, along with their children, from a dangerous cult. This movie was fun and frighting to watch at the visual's.

2/4 

Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) with the aid of a sidekick Short Round (Jonathan Ke Quan ) and Wilhelmina "Willie" Scott (Kate Kapshaw) goes to Shanghai. They all discover that sacred stones were and the children were captured. Willie was irritating, humor was unfunny and the raft sequence was just exaggerated. Screenplay’s cheese factor was very high and action sequences were bountiful though impossible at times. The score always keeps the movie alive and Ford convincing. A darker and more violent sequel doesn’t translate into a better film. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is a fun ride if not taken seriously.

Of the original trilogy, this is the weakest one - not as inventive and quick-paced as Raiders and not as funny as Last Crusade. Still, it features some great setpieces, including the climactic mine train set and some fearsome (albeit less memorable) villains.

"You Betrayed Shiva"

This movie is a great follow-up to one of the most relentlessly nonstop action pictures ever made, with a virtuoso series of climactic sequences that must last an hour and never stop for a second. It's a roller-coaster ride, a visual extravaganza, a technical triumph, and a whole lot of fun. And it's not simply a retread of "Raiders of the Lost Ark," It works in a different way, and borrows from different traditions.

People often mistake this movie for a sequel. It is actually a prequel. However, I feel like this should've been a sequel because gone are Marion and Sallah. In their places: Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) and Short Round (Ke Huy Quan). They're all fine, but they're not characters I would like to get involved with or be around with.

With all apologies to Ms. Capshaw, who o...

Indiana Jones' adventure in India!

Harrison Ford dons his dusty old hat once more for his signature role as the heroic archaeologist Indiana Jones. This time he finds himself in India, when a poor but deeply religious town asks him to track down a powerful and sacred stone that, according to legend, will bring prosperity back and save the children of the village.

Joining Indy this time is a young Chinese orphan named Short Round and a whiny damsel-in-distress type American lounge singer Kate Capshaw who becomes upset whenever she breaks her nails and acts too much like a spoiled brat.

The film's primary villain is an bald, intimidating ruffian named Mola Ram (Amrish Puri), a sadistic Thuggee high priest with a sinister grin who is the leader of an Ancient murderous cult that worships a sinister god steeped in live ...

"Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom" by Yojimbo

Swashbuckling archaeologist Indiana Jones returns to investigate an evil cult in India who have kidnapped the local children to search for the sacred stones of Shankara. Temple Of Doom has long been considered the weak link of the original trilogy, mainly because of the ill conceived inclusion of two sidekicks. The romance with Kate Capshaw is unconvincing as she literally spends the entire film either screaming or whining, and adding a streetwise kid to the mix is always the kiss of death. This obviously calculated attempt to appeal to a younger audience is added to by some broadly over-played humour that is completely at odds with the dark tone of the rest of the film. In the unlikely event that kids want to see a film about child abduction, slavery and human sacrifice I doubt very much...
