I won't give a full out review, and i'll try to keep this as spoiler free as i can.
So i just returned from the nearby AMC Theatre after seeing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. A word of advice, do the same, if you're planning on going to your local dingy theater you are not going to get the full feel of the movie. Not to sound like a spokesman, but see it at AMC or an equivalent theater; the big screen and the awesome surround sound really bring this film to life.
Now for the movie itself, don't go into this expecting something way over the top that it no longer feels like Indiana Jones. Lucas and Spielberg did a great job staying to the roots and keeping the CGI to a minimum, for the most part. But just as Lucas said if go into this looking for something more you are going to be disappointed, but if you go expecting fun, adventure, and that Spielberg flare, then you got it.
Also, do not be turned off by Shia LeBoeuf's appearance in the movie, sure it may seem like he's in everything nowadays, but his character fit in very well. The other thing I really liked about it was the well balanced connections of the past as well as hints to the future, but never getting out of hand. If you liked the previous movies, it makes sure you're happy.
A final tip, please, just go into this movie with an open mind; if you go to see this expecting it to be something or you have a disagreement with casting, then you won't be happy. But if you stay open, you will be highly rewarded.
Not really a full review but, Overall score - 8.6/10
