I watched the movie Indiana Jones and Kingdom of the crystal skull yesterday in Majestic Cinema, Colombo. After watching the movie, I just felt that it must have been a Tamil Movie. It’s nothing but a Masala movie, but nicely blended with Hollywood mixture. It’s fourth in Indiana Jones movies. Read more
I don’t know why I missed this movie for this much of time. This movie suppose to be one of the best movies I have ever seen in my life. Usually I like the movie of Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise. I was there with high expectations and I was granted what I was expecting.
Movie starts with a narration…
No one would have believed in the early years of the 21st century that our world was being watched by intelligences greater than our own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns, *they* observed and studied, the way a man with a microscope might scrutinize the creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water…
Story is simple. Alien war machines invade earth. Cruise’s family is fighting for survival along with other families. Cruise takes his son and daughter through tough road and he tries to save his family. In their way they encounter different type of people, aliens, alien machines etc. Finally he reunites with his family.
The acting is extremely good, and the idea of showing the film from the perspective of Cruise’s character – so the audience knows nothing that he doesn’t know – works extremely well. The complicated son – father relationship was also well elaborated. One of the best Sci-fi movies I have ever seen!
