Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
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 human sacrifices. He likes to rip people’s hearts out and then melt them in lava. By collecting the five lost Shankara Stones and offering human sacrifices, he hopes to honour the great deity, Kali. Can Indy defeat the cult and recover the stones? Of course he can, he's an action hero.
A good escapist action-adventure movie, swift and energetic with enough roller coaster action scenes to make it fun and great performances from Harrison Ford and Bollywood Superstar Amrish Puri.
