Critics reviews

Unfortunately, Kate Capshaw’s ditzy nightclub singer Willie Scott is a poor substitute for Marion—even if her damsel-in-distress vibe is played satirically, it’s exhausting.

The movie quickly bogs down in a series of muddy, dark, skeleton-infested fright scenes. Ford will degenerate into sour and scruffy in no time, and this first important role for Capshaw, the directors’ future wife, will plummet into featherbrained helplessness. The voice that warbled Cole Porter quickly turns shrill, becoming Spielberg’s most nerve-wracking version of the Shireking Woman.

As a follow-up, Temple of Doom is more intriguing than essential. It’s the most truly indebted to that episodic, chapter-play format, unable (or disinterested) in sustaining a steady tone, or even a locale, as Indy and company get knocked around between 1930s Hong Kong, the Himalayas, and a subterranean Indian mine staffed by kidnapped child laborers.
