Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)

It's been a long time coming, but Indiana Jones 4, better known as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will come out very soon. As a result, the TVs have been playing the original Indiana Jones movies.

Today I watched Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Many fans say this is the poorest of the three Indiana movies. That may be, but in my opinion Temple of Doom is a great movie.

Temple of Doom is a prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark. Indiana escaped from Shanghai and arrives in an Indian village where he discovers an underground cult that has stolen sacred rocks. This underground cult engages in ritual torture and child slavery. The movie is definitely violent while also being a family movie. I remember watching this movie as a child and being extremely scared with the infamous heart ripping scene.

Another problem I had with this movie is the annoying woman who is a dumb blonde stereotype.
