Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom ★★★½

Just like its predecessor, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom had remarkable production design. From the interior design of temples to caves, underground tunnels, and catacombs, everything seems realistic.

However, some minor flaws in the story dragged the experience quite a bit — underwhelming action scenes, lack of exhilarating explorations, and weak plot devices. Several visual effects were also a bit wonky, especially during the minecart and the bridge scenes.

Though I admit that the characters here were slightly better and not entirely focused on Indiana itself. Harrison Ford's and Kate Capshaw's chemistry is subtle, yet sometimes funny. The Asian kid singlehandedly carried this whole movie, don't at me.

Despite issues with the story, it still delivers enjoyment and offers screentime of Harrison Ford being shirtless. Lmao
